Town Crier Competes in Dawlish Competiton

Over the weekend, our wonderful Town Crier Les Ellis competed in the first ever Town Crier Competition at the Dawlish Celebrates Carnival.

There were twelve guest criers from around the Country who competed against each other in a Town Cry.

Come and have your say about BYELAWS

On Friday 27th July 2018, Dartmouth Town Council took over ownership and responsibility from South Hams District Council for: Royal Avenue Gardens; Coronation Park and the land at Castle Estate. The task of restoring them to their former glory has begun.

So that they can be maintained in good condition we need to think about byelaws, and we have now embarked on that process.

The draft byelaws have to be put to public consultation, and every Tuesday throughout August in 2018 there will be  an informal  meeting where everyone who is interested will have the chance to hear the draft document and comment on it.

All meetings will begin at 10am in the Clifton Room at Dartmouth Guildhall, Victoria Road usually run for around an hour.

The next meeting is scheduled on Tuesday 21st August 2018 at 10am
