fencing-final-12West Dorset Fencing Club championships got off to a spirited start on Thursday with eight young fencers under the age of thirteen fighting for the Junior title.  Fencing being equally a sport for girls and boys, the pool was mixed, but it turned out to be the girls’ night.  From five  boys and three girls, the girls were 1st, 2nd and 3rd!  The winner was 12 yr.old  Ellie Baldwin, who fenced with tremendous determination throughout the evening and won all of her fights, thoroughly deserving her first place.  She was closely contested by her friend, Caitlin Oldham, also 12, who was runner up after an exciting final bout.   3rd.place and this year’s style prize went to one of the youngest members of the club, Isabel d’Arrigo, and it was a delight to see neat and controlled fencing from a young lady of only 8 years old !

pickwicksThe Pickwicks are the brainchild of Bridport guitarist, singer and songwriter Declan Duffy. The constraints of the acoustic singer-songwriter format, allied to a wide set of influences, have always encouraged Declan to broaden the scope of his music as much as possible. Principal influences are The Stone Roses, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Atlantic/Stax and other old soul, the Happy Mondays/Black Grape, film scores and The Pogues, to name only a few (along with a lifelong love of old country music, but only the most real, of course).

twitchKevin Parr has launched his idea for “The Twitch”, a book about a fanatic bird watcher who will do anything to beat his rivals, with Unbound.co.uk, the award-winning, crowd-funded publisher. The book’s darkly comic plot focuses on the intriguing world of “twitching”, competitive bird watching that can involve travelling great distances to catch a glimpse of a rare bird. Readers can read an extract from the book and watch a pitch video on the Unbound website and if they like the idea, pledge support to make the book happen. If the book gets enough support, it will be published.

In recent research it was discovered that considering 75% of westbound traffic in the lead-up to various weekends and school holidays throughout the year was destined for Bridport, the addition of Bridport to the network was a “no brainer”.

Following several incidents in the town involving attacks on members of the public with knifes, No 10 has decided that although no incidents have happened at No 10 it is prudent that its responsible staff receive relevant training to cope with such incidents.
