Wood is an uncompromising folk singer songwriter whose music reveals his
love for the un-official history of the English speaking people. With gentle
intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables. In
a world of soundbites and distractions Chris Wood is a truth seeker. His
writing is permeated with love and wry intelligence, uplifting and
challenging as he celebrates the sheer one-thing-after-anotherness of life.

The Lyme Regis
Society present A Talk:
Heritage; what went wrong for Lyme Regis’
by Richard Edmunds.
Although we have an excellent, and recently improved museum, it does not
and simply cannot do justice to the astounding fossil heritage for which
Lyme Regis is so rightly famous. And those fossils are the jewel
in the crown for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site but how did this
astounding designation fail to deliver what the Site really needs and
really has to offer? 2pm
Woodmead Halls, Hill Road, Lyme Regis. DT7 3PG All
Welcome. Members Free. Visitors £3.00.

The Spring Equinox is the first day of spring and occurs when the sun passes
the equator moving from the southern to the northern hemisphere. The
sun is directly overhead at the equator and day and night are of
approximately equal lengths. At equinox, the Sun rises everywhere on Earth
(except the Poles) at about 6am in the morning and sets at about 6pm in the
evening (though this can vary a little when time zones and daylight saving
are taken into account).
Tides along the Lyme Regis coast are
among the lowest of the year
March 23rd Wednesday
by Paul Rendell.

The speaker is Paul Rendell, known as ‘Dartmoor Paul’ and his topic is
‘Nature in the Garden’. In this talk Paul explores the wild animals,
birds and creatures to be found in the garden; some easy, others well
hidden. He will look at how you can encourage the good guys in your garden.
Paul’s books will be on sale at the event.

He originally trained as a chef and later a gardener, becoming Head Gardener
at Devonport Dockyard. In 2011 he started working for the Dartmoor Pony
Heritage Trust leading walks and undertaking conservation work. As well as
being a Dartmoor National Park guide for over 21 years, Paul is now a member
of the Moorland Guides.
Members will also be able to collect their free plug plant to grow on for
the Summer Flower and Produce Fair. This year the plant is Argyranthemum, or
marguerite, a daisy like flower with attractive feathery foliage. Doors
open at 7pm for refreshments. Members free; guests £3..

What's on in the Galleries
Paintings by Dianne Mary Alice
19 January until 6 March
the Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum
Dianne Mary Alice is a professional artist who came to be living
by the sea in Dorset via West London and the French canals. She
started taking art classes after retiring from a career in fashion,
textiles and garden design. An Artist’s Journey is her first
solo exhibition, and it runs from 19 January until 6 March at the
Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum.
Dianne's impressionistic and spontaneous
approach captures images and forms from the natural world
experimenting with all mediums, usually using a palette knife and
just a few colours. Her inspiration comes from big skies,
landscapes, plants, flowers and the sea. Sketches and line drawings
are done plein air when possible, often moving on to underpainting
in acrylic and ending with oil. She started exhibiting three years
ago with Dorset Arts Weeks and belongs to Lyme Bay Arts, Artwey and
Casterbridge Art societies.

times, please visit www.lymeregismuseum.co.uk.
Every Breath We Take
Paintings by Christine Allison
Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum
This exhibition is
Dorset artist Christine Allison’s tribute to the planet’s most
important and too often undervalued resource: trees. As Christine
says, “Now more than ever we need to take notice of the trees we have
around us. These wonderful growing organisms are our second pair of
lungs, our ventilators and our lifesavers. I am celebrating the trees
around me in my paintings and drawings. I want people to wake up and
notice our trees, to pay attention and care for those we have and
plant more everywhere. This Easter I pledge to plant even more trees
from the sales of paintings in this exhibition.”
For the opening times of Every Breath We Take, please visit
and for more information on Christine’s work, go to
and the Sea,
our Community Play,
tickets now on sale.
In Lyme Regis, there's a strong tradition of Community Plays that dates back
to the 1970s. In recent years, successes include ‘Tempest of Lyme’,
‘Monmouth: A West Country Rebellion’ and ‘Are you Going to the Marine?’ .
Screenwriter and Marine patron Andrew Rattenbury has done it again: Lyme and
the Sea is a celebration of our town's enduring relationship with the sea -
sometimes joyful and sometimes tragic.
With dozens of local people working hard to produce the show, it promises to
be a magnificent community event for all. We hope you can join us.

coffee cups or food and drink cartons but by taking them to Holmbush, we can
do our bit for recycling and make a dent in the huge number of paper coffee
cups with plastic lining that need to be recycled separately from paper
collections . Take away coffee cups can also be taken to Costa where they
are stored and taken regularly to Costa’s own recycling centre for cups.
You can take in cups from other cafes/shops are well as any purchased from

Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than
fifteen minutes hike, without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more
likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!
