1. New parking
Jonathan Hawkins set up a Dartmouth
Parking Group four years ago. One of its aims was "Not to
have Pay & Display as presently understood" - this aim was
subsequently adopted by Dartmouth Town Council.
Unfortunately the original group has since been taken over by a
new group and its aims have been overridden. Another aim
was "Better Signage" using Section 106 money and we are
delighted to announce that it has finally happened! Here
you can see the new electronic signs.
The new signs achieve two important
things, firstly they bring attention to the fact that there is
actually a Park & Ride and secondly how many spaces are
available. We must all thank Jonathan Hawkins, the "Old"
Parking Group, Devon County Council and South Hams District
Council for this initiative. We hope another sign will
soon be sited near the Lower Ferry. Dartmouth will be an even
better place to be in during the Summer now!

Le Quattro Volte tonight
Frammartino : Actors: Giuseppe Fuda, Bruno Timpano,
Nazarenzo Timpano : 88 minutes : Cert. U. Drama: ‘A movie of
grave beauty, serene pace and surprising humour’….
Michelangelo Frammartino's Le
Quattro Volte, or The Four Times, is a gem of art cinema.
This beautiful movie is almost entirely wordless; superbly
filmed, with an almost respiratory sense of the rise and
fall of the seasons and the rhythm of the countryside. The
scene is Calabria in southern Italy; it could be taking
place at any time over the past couple of centuries and only
the final section definitely locates it in the present day.
An old shepherd tends to his goats; heartbreakingly, he is
racked by a terrible cough and is dying, and when he slumps
down and collapses in a field or woodland, one of the goats
returns, as if to check on him. The goats are tending to
him. Every night, he drinks some sort of powdered infusion;
later, we will find that this powder is not medicine, but
dust from the church floor, which he apparently credits with
magical qualities: superstition has mixed with traditional
piety in this secluded place…
Films are screened at The
Guildhall, Victoria Road, Dartmouth. The bar is open from
7.00pm and the films start at 7.30pm Guest tickets are
