1.  Candlelit Dartmouth

Wow! what a success!  The Royal Castle Hotel reported that it was as good as Food Festival, a great achievement by the organiser Steve Thomas.  Thanks to the Academy offering the use of their buses, the Park & Ride was free on Saturday and over 1,000 people came shopping in Dartmouth.  Both ITV and BBC were there and Friday saw live TV coverage, all great news for Dartmouth.  Saturday evening saw more lanterns than ever before, needless to say the Dartmouth TV crew had a great time, special thanks to Steve Tomas and Richard Worthy for their co-operation with our photographers.

2.  St Petrox Church celebrates Advent

The Revd Will Hazlewood reports:  Dartmouth Churches were candlelit and had a Fayre too!  Despite stiff competition from other events, the parish Christmas Fayre in St Saviour's Church last Saturday was a great success, raising over £1,200 for parish funds.  Thank you to everyone who helped and supported us. 

On Sunday the beginning of Advent was celebrated at St Petrox Church with the a capella group, Sine Nomine.  Over 100 people braved the mist and rain on Sunday evening to listen to, and join in with, some wonderful Advent carols, sung in the beautiful setting of a candlelit St Petrox Church. 

On Sunday 30 December St Petrox Church will be candlelit again as we welcome 2013 with a New Year Carol Service at 5pm.  All are welcome at our services (don't forget to bring a torch to this one though!)

Why not come down for the weekend, or even a week?

3.   Millions tonight !

Director: Danny Boyle : Actors: Alex Etel, James Nesbitt, Lewis McGibbon : 98 minutes : Cert. 12A. Comedy/Crime/Drama

Director Danny Boyle revisits the theme of greed in this heartfelt, emotionally delicate comedy drama. Millions opens with recent widower Ronnie moving with his two young sons to the suburbs. Missing his mother and his old neighbourhood, 7 year old Damian builds a cardboard-box fort, where one day his placid introvert existence is literally crushed by a giant bag full of thousands of pounds' worth of cash. Prone to visions of saints, he's convinced it's a gift from God, but with Britain about to switch to the Euro, his worldly-wise nine-year-old brother Anthony knows they'll have to use it or lose it. His conscience getting in the way of his spending, Damian debates the ethics of his ill-gotten gains with a handful of imaginary saints, and begins to try to spend his cash a little more altruistically. But his charitable deeds inadvertently attract the attention of a mysterious, threatening man who's desperate to get his hands on the money….

This film is on tonight.  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 available on the night for £4.00 each from “The Windjammer” Victoria Road between 7.00pm & 7.25pm only. No guest tickets will be sold on the door. For more information call Clive Osborne on: Tel. 07968 026449
