Our Spring Fair on Saturday 18 May a great success as you can see from the following photographs
There was something for everyone at our Spring Fair, lots of stalls, great children's activities, music on the bandstand, history event in the Community Room, and the fabulous Jensen Car Owners Club. We also opened up the Snack Bar in the Pavilion which proved very popular. And it didn't rain! A big thank you to everyone involved in making this event a success.

Dartmouth Park on a sunny Saturday in February

Funtime Theatre's Production of Cinderella a great success
in the Community Room in the 'Fort'
February Half Term and, courtesy of the Friends' group, local children were entertained with a great performance of Cinderella by Funtime Theatre. Look out for children’s entertainment and fun activities every Wednesday during school holidays.

Last year we had Creative Academies providing indoor and outdoor activities. They were so successful we have asked them back this year and they will be on hand every Wednesday in the Easter Holiday, Spring Bank Holiday and, of course, during the Summer holidays. Venue for all these activities is the Community Room in the 'Fort'.

Sue Slater, our Chair, celebrated her birthday with a cake sporting fireworks.
We held a quiz night at Dartmouth Central Bowling Club for her birthday get together, and Sue's team won the quiz. It was an appropriate end to a very successful evening.
