1. Youngest Vicar
in living memory appointed!
The parishes of Dartmouth and
Dittisham finally have a new vicar! The Reverend Will Hazlewood
has been appointed as parish priest. Father Will, together with his wife
Sophie and 3 year old son Theo (plus the family dog!), is
looking forward to becoming part of the life of Dartmouth and
Dittisham sometime during the summer.
Father Will is an experienced parish
priest who served in Bristol Diocese before becoming vicar of
Iver Heath in Buckinghamshire. He trained as an engineer and is
an expert at restoring classic cars and loves to ‘mend’ anything
rather than throw it away. We look forward to welcoming him
Actors: Hye-ja Kim, Bin
Won, Ku Jin: Cert: 15 - Crime/Drama/Mystery. Joon-ho
Bong’s accomplished new film, a psychological thriller, has
some excellent and highly satisfying twists. In a provincial
town, a single mother , who runs a herbal store and
practises as an unlicensed acupuncturist, is deeply attached
to her son, a 27-year-old with learning difficulties, who
suffers from bouts of amnesia and keeps bad company.
Arrested for the murder of a high school girl, he's
railroaded into a confession by inexperienced detectives.
But the mother is convinced of his innocence, and in the
face of official indifference and a hostile local populace
she turns detective. Hye-ja Kim is immensely sympathetic as
the mother and the editing is sophisticated. ‘Another
fine film from South Korean director Joon-ho Bong …’
This film is on tonight at the
Guildhall at 7.30PM. Guest tickets can be purchased on the
night of the screening at The Windjammer pub in Victoria
Road, Dartmouth for £3.60 per film, between 7.00 – 7.25 pm.
New members can join at the door on any screening night. For
further information contact: Clive Osborne on 079-6802-6449
A Comedy Film Night to remember
The Flavel proudly presents : A
Comedy Film Night to remember. With Mystery Guest. Weds 9th
Laugh more, live longer….. Peter Richardson, the incredibly
well-connected patron of the Dartmouth Comedy Festival, has
once again secured a fantastic mystery guest for the Comedy
Film Night on Weds 9th March. Previous lucky Flavel regulars
have had intimate audiences with comedy kings such as Eddie
Izzard, John Sessions, Phil Cornwell, Keith Allen and Gary
Beadle, all thanks to the support of Peter and the high
esteem that his fellow comedians hold him in.
The Festival's mystery visitor, an internationally
recognised comedian who is coming specially to Dartmouth,
has a string of successful TV shows and films behind them.
At this very moment Nick Smith, of Smith and Watson
Productions in Totnes, has an array of clips before him in
the editing suite, editing together a special film to be
screened on the opening night of the Comedy Festival.
This year the Flavel are offering a prize for the first 10
people to successfully guess the identity of our mystery
visitor. If you need a clue – their surname is also the name
of a famous motorbike? The prize will be 2 tickets to one of
the next Flavel Comedy Nights. Responses by email to
clicking here by midday Mon 7 Mar.

30 years at the Dart Marina Hotel
Chef Stuart Woolvin celebrated
30 years at Dart Marina Hotel & Spa in Dartmouth, Devon on
Monday 21st February, with a record of only two days taken
off through sickness in his whole employment period.
Stuart, who also met his wife at
Dart Marina when she was a guest during his first year at
the Hotel, comments: “I regard Dart Marina as one big happy
family, everyone pulls together and even though it’s my
place of work, the Hotel has become my way of life. It is a
delight seeing guests return to Dart Marina year after year
– so many people fall in love with Dartmouth and it’s a
pleasure to be able to greet familiar faces and chat about
favourite boat trips, breathtaking walks that lead to
incredible views and of course, where to find the most
delicious Devon ice cream cone!”
Stuart first joined Dart Marina as an apprentice, aged 21,
when menus included classics such as Steak Diane and Soul
Veronique. Stuart continues: “Now, we may serve an Assiette
of Pork with the farmer’s name clearly on the menu, fish
landed less than an hour before service, seasonal vegetables
from a neighbouring farm, or local Red Devon Beef. I have
loved being part of this change and in my opinion the
producers now get the credit they are due. Our menus are all
about provenance, careful sourcing, seasonality and flavour
– a huge change for the better as far as I am concerned.
The pleasure in all this is that I really enjoy passing on
what I know about the profession to younger members of the
team and above everything I like being reliable!”
To mark Stuart’s 30 year anniversary, head chef Tom Woods
will cook dinner for Stuart and his wife at Dart Marina’s 2
AA Rosette Restaurant and the couple have a trip to Paris to
look forward to courtesy of the team at the Hotel.
Chris Jones, General Manager comments: “Chefs work in
extreme heat and under tremendous pressure for much of their
careers - Stuart is a remarkable member of staff and we will
all celebrate as he marks 30 years with us. Through Stuart’s
attitude to work and his ability to embrace new food styles,
he has been a shining example to younger chefs and we feel
very lucky to have him as part of our team.” To read

Schoolrooms so that they can continue there until the

The Dartmouth Music Festival
website is starting to rock and roll,
to see some of the artists who will be performing soon!
reports: My ambition is to set up a sports club which
will provide regular indoor freerunning lessons for
young people in the south hams area. Freerunning,
also known as Parkour is a relatively new urban sport
which originated in France but over the last 7
years has become a big thing in the UK and indeed all
over the world.
