Its that time of year again folks! Time for the Christmas Lights.
The Watermark was open late last night as the christmas lights were switched on, a parade marched through the town centre (with local groups & some not so local (a galaxy far far away anyone?) and of course Santa himself (well….).
In the Watermark we currently have Santa’s Watermark Grotto! Children (of any age) were invited to visit Santa at the Watermark and everyone got free sweets! Check out our gallery from the evening for all the pictures! www.ivybridgewatermark.co.uk/the-christmas-lights-2011
Santa will also be at The Watermark on Saturday 3rd, 10th & 17th, you can find more information on the Town Council’s website (www.ivybridge.gov.uk) and also in The Information Centre at The Watermark.

If you had tried to access the site yesterday (Thursday) evening, you may not have been able to view the site, that’s because we have been working away, improving the site, for Friday (Today) Morning! We apologise for any inconvenience, but we think you will like the improvements to the site.
First of all, this won’t be the last update, we are constantly working on ways to interact with our customers and improve the site and the way you can use it. Some of the updates in this ‘Version’ there have been quite a few changes to the home page, we have tried to develop it to make it easier to find out what is happening at The Watermark from day to day, and more importantly, what there is for you to do at The Watermark from day to day.
A few more feature updates, we now have galleries on the site! You will be seeing these very soon, and over the christmas period we will be using them very frequently to document our various events, and yes, you will all be able to download the pictures from any of the events you attend! One of the things we hope this site will provide is a place to talk! We have comment sections on all our posts and we love to hear from you.
After a very long evening, welcome to The Watermark Website, Version 2. Enjoy and feel free to send us any ideas you think might improve the site!
Over the past few weeks you should have received, through your front door, a small leaflet called ‘Which way for Ivybridge?’ Well the past few weeks have been pretty manic for The Watermark, we’ve had the Princes Trust in this week, discussing the plans for Ivybridge, lots of meetings between different people, but the most important two meetings that affect most people in Ivybridge have been the two public meetings. One happened on Monday 7th November and one is happening on Tuesday 10th November.
Monday 7th November
The first of two meetings. Members of the public (the residents of Ivybridge) were invited to the Watermark to put forward their ideas for Ivybridge, over the course of the night, people were invited to write down an idea on a post it note, and having seen the response, it’s pretty incredible. Almost an entire wall has been filled with neon coloured postit notes with all of your ideas on it.
If you haven’t seen these leaflets, pop down to the watermark and we’ve got some here at the front desk!
Thursday 10th November
Today is the day of the second public meeting, it’s official name is: The Presentation of the two masterplans. The princes trust has been working on producing the masterplans with the input of the Ivybridge Community at The Watermark for the past few days and tonight you will be able to see the results and the current progression of the masterplans.
It all starts at 7pm and it is only an hour long.
We look forward to seeing you there!
New to the Watermark this week we have brand new prints from local Humourist artist John Faulkner.
New prints include sports, fairies, celebrities, if you’ve never seen these prints before, pop down to the Information centre and they are literally just inside the Watermark front door!! They make great birthday and Christmas presents and you are guaranteed a chuckle!
UPDATE: We will soon be getting a catalogue of all of John Faulkners work!!
If anyone visited the Watermark this Wednesday, then you may have seen bits of tiling everywhere and wires hanging down from the ceiling! We were having our brand new TV system installed! Anyway, long story short, I looked like a puppet for majority of the day! A picture for your amusement:
Thunderbirds are Go!
(P.S. Jackie’s not much of a photographer)
We will soon have three screens throughout the watermark which be showing previews of what’s coming up at The Watermark! We are also looking for people who would like to advertise on the screens. Give us a call on 01752 892220 or e-mail email@example.com
Time for an ‘Interesting Tidbit’, in the information centre every now and again we come across some things we think you might like. Earlier this week someone told us about this video at the British Pathe website called ‘A Postcard to Devon’ which shows the journey a postcard makes from London, to Ivybridge! Follow the link (http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=74978) to read more about it, or we’ve even embedded the video below for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy!
