as soon as they are printed. Please do not buy tickets for people who are not from the village as this is completely counter to the purposes of the Carlow Bequest, it also prevents residents from getting hold of tickets which, I think you will agree, is hardly fair.


KINGSWOMEN


The management has sent me the current Kingswomen newsletter which I will pass on to you in full rather than trying to chop it about:


Kingswomen are up and running again after a rather ex- tended Autumn break. Sadly the ‘summer weather’ played a part in sabotaging plans for a Pimms Garden Party and we never had another settled spell of sunshine to resched- ule so fingers crossed for next year.


Members of Kingswomen went to Brixham Fish Market at the beginning of September and despite the ungainly early start it was deemed to be a great success. (Apologies to members from Dartmouth who couldn’t get across the river in time). We also had a visit to The Flavel to see the excel- lent Meryl Streep in Hope Springs.


And of course the Book Group is still well supported. And so-into the new programme....... We kick off on Thursday November 15th at 7-30pm in The Sarah Roope Room with a ‘November Natter’ – with cheese (and wine of course). We hope this will be a chance to get together for a good goss and an opportunity for members to put forward any ideas for future plans. For our Christmas Party this year Hilary has again gener- ously offered the use of her house for a celebration on Wednesday December 12th. It would be helpful to know numbers for this event to help with the catering so put the date in your diaries and watch this space for more informa- tion nearer the time. On Wednesday January 17th due to popular request we have again booked a date with Holly and David Jones at Manna from Devon for an evening of gastronomic indulgence. We will need numbers for this event which will probably cost in the region of £20. We would also wel- come suggestions on the theme – we have done canapés, fish, Asian spices and outdoor oven cookery in the past. Wednesday February 13th will be an evening with a romantic theme to put you in the mood for Valentine’s Day. And in March we thought it would be fun to do a Ghost


Walk in Brixham followed by a fish supper at the new Fish Quay restaurant - but details have not yet been finalised. We do hope there is something here to appeal to the ladies of Kingswear and we look forward to seeing you at some or all of the evenings.


SLAPPER’S HILL You may not realize that Kingswear has the second highest horse population in the South Hams parishes with approximately 156 horses. However finding routes which are both safe and picturesque for horse riders, walkers and


NEW PUBLIC BRIDLEWAY ON


cyclists is like looking for gold dust.


This combined with the thousands of visitors from the Caravan Club who are keen to enjoy the countryside has resulted in the opening of a new public bridleway along- side the B3205 – locally known as Slapper’s Hill - from the Toll House to the Caravan Club at Hillhead. The route has been 3 years in the making following meetings between Devon County Council (who funded the initiative) and the local National Trust (who provided the land). The commitment of the 2 organisations led to the legalities being finalized and the path was opened on 3 August 2012 for all to enjoy.


At present the bridleway stops at the Caravan Club but


it’s hoped that it will eventually join up with Penhill Lane potentially creating a circular route towards the coast and Mansands Beach, allowing walkers and horse riders a safer off road route from Kingswear to Hillhead. And for those who are wondering – why the name Slapper’s Hill? We’re presuming it comes from urging the horses and carts up the long hill using the long reins as persuaders – but if you know otherwise let us know!


WI COFFEE


I am told that the ladies of the WI raised about £280 at the recent Saturday morning coffee event. Well done ladies, and lang may yer cakes bake, as the poet Aelfred never said as he watched the spider burn!.


CAROL CONCERT This year’s FroST Christmas concert is to be held in St


Thomas’s church Kingswear on Thursday December 20th at 6:00pm. There will be the usual delights in music and words, so come along all and get right in to the festive spirit.


BRAINS OF KINGSWEAR The winners of the Brain of Kingswear trophy for 2012


were Holly and David, Cat and Denise who formed the winning killer team. Second came Mike Goodearl’s team who had probably had too much beer and cake anyway! Well done all, and thank you organisers.•
