1.     Michael & Emma tie the knot

Almost 300 guests and parishioners heard Michael and Emma Macey say "I will" in St Saviour's Church last Friday afternoon.  The church was so crowded that, when asked what Emma's dress was like, one guest said, "I think she looked radiant, but I could only see the top of her head!"  After the ceremony, the couple invited everyone to stay for champagne, nibbles and a slice of that massive cake.  Dartmouth dot TV understands that there was no room left in the local Bottle Bank by Saturday morning!  After their honeymoon, they will be back in Dartmouth, where Michael is Curate.

2.   Food Festival Update

James Brown reports: "Dartmouth's third Food Festival will take place on the 12-14th of October, based around a marquee in the Old Market Square. Nearly all of the pubs and restaurants in Dartmouth are producing special menus and wine tastings for the Festival. Look out for the Festival Logo at participating venues and ask them what they are doing!

"The Festival will kick off with a fantastic party on the evening of the 11th of October in the Old Market Square. An evening long tasting menu prepared by some of the best chefs in town, using the best local South Hams produce will be amazing. A Champagne and oyster bar, Live music, Food Auction, local beers, cider and wine will ensure that the Festival gets off to a fantastic start. This event is by ticket only. The price is 20 and includes your food and will pay for the marquee. Tickets are available from Browns Hotel, The Vintners and Smith Street Deli. Tickets are selling fast. Why not get some friends together and make it a night to remember"  For more information click here or on the logo.  The web site will be substantially updated over this weekend.

3.    Memories of Dartmouth

Taken from the Town Council Guide and sold by W. H. Smith & Son in Dartmouth c1903.  "The ten miles of shallow estuary between Totnes and Dartmouth has been described as the most beautiful bit of river scenery in Southern Britain.  There are no ten miles of the Rhine indeed that can for a moment compare with that beautiful stretch of wooded English undulating country"  No change there then?  Is that really a "hot dinner for only  5p ?

4.    Regatta Air Display pictures


With 12 air displays Dartmouth really did have a good time.  If you want to see more of it click here or on the photo on the right.

5.   Our man in South Africa

Christopher Helyer reports "Many thanks for today's (7th September) edition of 'Dartmouth News'. Now that I am resident for three months in King William's Town, in the  Eastern Cape of South Africa, it is an excellent way of keeping in touch  with the main news items from Dartmouth.

Might I also, through Dartmouth News thank all those, particularly young local musicians  who gave their services, who during the Regatta Recitals, held in  S.Saviour's Church, supported The Mayenziwe Project. Over 700 was donated to this cause; supporting 'bush' school education in the Eastern Cape. Thank you, once again,"

8.   Are we "too sexy for our shirt"?

Do you think we are sexy, or do you think we are in fact "too sexy for our shirt"?  Which websites do you want to be on?  Ours for free? Comments have been "I love the menu" have you seen it?  click here  Ronseal would be proud of us as "it does exactly what it says on the tin".

 This is the time of year when you must be considering who to place your advertising with, and both rank us very highly.  Our basic entries are free, yes free.  It's just your time to send us a description and some images, or tell us where your  images are.  Do you think that is worth it for a few weeks extra bookings, for free?

Or let us prepare your own website for 150 all in, we even register and host it for you, included in the price!  If you have a web site you might like us to jazz it up a bit, or you might want a plus page?

A question people often ask is "are you official?"  Quite simply, we are as official as any other tourist web site in Dartmouth.  The important thing is that we get you exposure and bookings.
