1.  A day on the river

Hire a boat from the embankment, take a small camera, and you could have seen all this last Saturday!  And yes, the sky was blue, the river was blue and one of us got sunburnt!


2.   J80 World Championship

Many thanks to Andy Kyle for getting these shots of the J80 Championship to us.  Each yacht has four crew and coupled with the support team means that about 500 people are in Dartmouth, and then add the spectators and you can see how important this is to our small town.  Accommodation providers have been booked out for months and we all thank the organisers for coming!


3.  Italian Cookery Demonstration by Stephen Bulmer, followed by Three-Course Italian Lunch

The Angel, Dartmouth is delighted to support an exclusive event on Thursday 21st June 2012. Guests attending will be treated to a cookery demonstration of authentic Italian dishes followed by a three course Italian lunch in the restaurant for just £32.00 per person.  For more details call 01803 839 425 or click here.

Stephen Bulmer, head chef at The Angel, Dartmouth spent several years working for Giorgio Locatelli at his Michelin-starred restaurant Zafferano, in London’s Knightsbridge before going on to run Raymond Blanc’s cookery school at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. During his time at Zafferano, Steve not only perfected his pasta and pizza-making techniques, but also developed a deep love for authentic, regional dishes using traditional Italian ingredients and condiments. This exclusive  cookery demonstration and lunch is Steve’s first opportunity to use  his teaching skills since he arrived at The Angel, Dartmouth last January.

4.   Dartmouth Art & Craft Weekend in aid of Children's Hospice South West

Saturday 30th June & Sunday 1st July 2012 10am until 4pm

Another chance to enjoy an interesting and fun weekend with artists, sculptors, potters and other craft workers displaying their talents in Royal Avenue Gardens in Dartmouth. Visitors to this event, the 9th Dartmouth Art Weekend, will be able to watch, talk to, and buy from the artists while they work. There will also be some special art activities for children and teas, homemade cakes and snacks will be provided by Children’s Hospice volunteers. This event raised almost £3,000 in 2011 and it’s hoped that this can be equalled this year.  The photo to the right is from last year's event.

This event is organised by Dartmouth & District Friends Group, one of around 80 in the South West working voluntarily to support Children's Hospice South West. We help raise funds for the hospice and also increase awareness of the specialist care they provide for over 400 terminally ill children and their families from the South West. We hope that as many people as possible will visit this wonderful Art and Craft Weekend and spend well to raise lots of money for Children's Hospice South West. Please help us to make the most of short and precious lives. More volunteers to help are always very welcome. Click here for more. Contact Sue Tweed on 01803 770730 or by email at tweed833@btinternet.com if you would like to help, as little or as much as you like.
