1.     Palm 105.5 FM


South Devon's newest radio station Palm 105.5FM entertained  local celebrities and business people on Monday evening.  A good time was had by all, thanks guys!   "Palm FM plays a mix of classic and current hits with up-to-date local news and information.  Palm 105.5FM is live and very, very local and will bring a breath of fresh air to this beautiful part of the country."

2.     Browns Music Evening

This Saturday evening from 8-11pm, singer/songwriter Mark Ely will be playing a set of self penned material in Browns Bar. Mark is currently working on an album under the project name Makeeli and will be performing at Browns bar unplugged. All are welcome in the bar, booking is essential for the restaurant.

3.   Dartmouth in Bloom

No news yet, but if Browns Hill steps looked after by Maris Handley is anything to go by, we should have won?

4.    Dartmouth Illustrated part IV

So have things really changed much in the 18 years since this was taken ? 

5.    The Orchard, use it or lose it ?

What a fantastic place to go for a walk or have a picnic ?  Many people think Coronation Park is the only green space in town, but the Orchard well and truly trumps it.  I have only ever seen Kevin Pyne there, the views are stunning and it's a very large place.  There are those who would like it to be used as a car park or for affordable housing, what do you think ?


6.   Blackpool Sands & recycling !

Children visiting Blackpool Sands, near Dartmouth this summer holiday have a treat in store with some unusual activity days that show them the importance of looking after the environment. Recycle on a Unicycle with popular, madcap Professor Elfic the Jester presents “Sort It Out!”- Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle on a Unicycle on July 27th, August 14th and August 21st. With enough magic, circus tricks, puppetry and comedy to fill a landfill site, Prof Elfic tackles the serious issue of waste in an amusing way.

Ryan, the Lion cub worships his father Sampson, the uncontested king of
New York City Zoo. The film opens as Sampson is recounting yet another
of his tales of roaring wildebeests into submission on the African
Savannah. As the zoo animals cavort, Ryan slips into a metal crate bound
for overseas to see the ‘Wild’ for himself. Sampson with the help of his
friends must brave the New York City Jungle and then the actual jungle
to save his son. To make things worse, Sampson confesses that his heroic
stories were fabrications and he can’t even fight off a rabid poodle.
