Dartmouth, Cllr Iris Pritchard, switched on the town's
Christmas lights. Father Christmas (photo at the top of this

appreciative children, the rest of us ate chestnuts and sang
carols, then went to the DA for a pint and a pizza.
Congratulations to local artist, poet, writer
Joan Cawley on her 81st
birthday last week. Joan, who recently exhibited her
art at The Flavel particularly wanted to sample the delights
of The Embankment Restaurant. Paul gladly arranged a
window seat and a smashing time was had by all. Oh,
and the Lamb Wellington was as good as the Bread & Butter
Pudding served with Butterscotch sauce........
Thanksgiving at The
Once again, the Dartmouth dot TV
crew joined many locals to celebrate Thanksgiving last
Thursday evening in the
Royal Castle Hotel,
remembering the town’s historic link to the Pilgrim Fathers,
who set out from Bayard’s Cove in 1620 to America.
We all tucked into a traditional meal including pumpkin
soup, turkey with cranberries, corn bread, green beans and
mashed sweet potato with marshmallow, followed by pecan pie.
Thanks must go to Terri and Gary Larsen, who started the
tradition of Thanksgiving Dinners in Dartmouth some seven
years ago, and also to Nigel Way and the staff at the Royal
Castle Hotel for making it a most enjoyable evening.
