The Great Dorset Chilli Festival - Wimborne St Giles, Dorset Food Festival!

chillifestThe festival will be held on the last weekend in July 2016 (Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July) and we are looking forward to another great day out for chilli enthusiasts, food lovers and families. To be held with the kind permission of the Earl of Shaftesbury at St Giles Park, we’re lining up a glorious weekend of “chilli fiesta”, with stalls selling all things chilli, from pepper plants to cayenne condiments; seeds to ceramics; plus cooking demonstrations; talks on growing chillies; artisan food producers; music; spicy street food; local ice creams to cool the mouth; local beers to slake the thirst.

One of rock music’s more iconic images is that of Jimi Hendrix onstage at the Monterey Pop Festival in ’67, kneeling over the remains of his burning guitar after his performance of “Wild Thing.” He was beckoning the flames to rise as if summoning up demons and dragons from hell, which is what several fans described as witnessing after ingesting “Monterey Purple,” a strain of LSD concocted especially for the event.

This planning application has now been withdrawn

askers_meadows_weirA planning application has been lodged to use Askers Meadows for "Temporary classroom for courses in traditional skills, dry stone walling and hedge laying and temporary parking for 100 cars on show field on Saturdays and for festivals between July- September"

It is not simply a field it is an ecosystem. Small plants, insects, birds and other animals use it as their habitat, compacting of the soil will also have an effect on the microorganisms in the soil.

richard-3rdIt was whilst on a visit to York that Arthur Woodgate discovered the link between Bridport and Richard the Third, popularly known as “The King in the Car Park.”

Now plans are afoot to commemorate the visit of the much maligned monarch. In the riverside gardens by East Bridge an information notice board identifies the location of the Priory of St John the Baptist just across the road, but gives no indication that this is where Richard is considered to have stayed.

After more than six years of project development, the Bridport Area Development Trust is in the final process of appointing contractors to begin work on the restoration of Bridport Literary and Scientific Institute.

The Grade 2* listed building in East Street has been empty since 1997 and is currently on the national At Risk register.  Initial clearing and tidying inside the building has already been completed and the architects have undertaken further studies and opening up works to inform the detail of the restoration and redevelopment.  Once the final drawings and costings have been completed, contractors will be confirmed, with a view to starting the main building work on site later this year.  In the meantime, the building will be protected to ensure there is no further deterioration to its condition.
