1.  Dartmouth Caring Annual Fashion Show

Alison reports: Dartmouth Caring Annual Fashion Show is on Wednesday 6 April at The Flavel with new season outfits from Danielli, Dreams, Mistral and Starburst.

The evening also includes the finalist catwalk for the Dartmouth Academy Fashion Student of the Year Award. Twelve finalists were selected from the Academy’s own student show to present their outfits once more in front of the judges at the Dartmouth Caring Show. The winner will be announced on the evening. Raffle tickets will also be sold on the night for some wonderful prizes. Tickets cost £20 each and include a gift bag to take home plus delicious savoury and sweet delights by Saveurs to enjoy at a seated table whilst watching the show. They are available at each of the shops taking part or the Dartmouth Caring office, opposite the Medical Practice entrance. Proceeds from funds raised go towards the charity for use in its community support. Please do come along and enjoy the event with us, doors open at 6.30pm. The picture is from last year's show, looks good, so why not go?

2.   Are you a young champion?

Dart Harbour seeks entries for its Young Champion Awards 2011 – you could have what it takes!

The 2011 Dart Harbour Young Champion Awards are now accepting entries – and the award’s organisers are looking forward to being inspired by the activities of the young people around the River Dart.

The awards, which are in their second year, reward those who go out of their way to use, celebrate or promote the River Dart – one of Britain’s most beautiful and most loved waterways. It is open to anyone of the right age who lives within 10 miles of the River Dart.  There are three age-groups in the awards: 8-11 years, which is an award for school classes or clubs to undertake, 12-16 years which is for individuals with teacher or adult guidance, and 16-21 years, which is for individuals.

The aim is to celebrate the River Dart in some way - and the beauty of the competition is that entrants can let their imagination run wild.  Entrants could document the wildlife of the river, or canoe down it for charity, or write poetry about it, or race on it, or find new ways to cross it - the possibilities are endless.

Sue Pudduck, part of the Dart Harbour Board and one of the award’s organisers said she was really excited to see what the young people of the Dart Valley and beyond could achieve.  ‘The young people in this area are dynamic and inventive,’ she said. ‘We really look forward to seeing what entries come in. Obviously sports are going to be a big part of it, but we are also interested in arts-based submissions, environmental submissions and even community projects too.’  For more details on the Young Champion Award check out the Dart Harbour Website: by clicking here, or call Dart Harbour on 01803 832337.
