jon-pleased-wimminThe fabulous JON PLEASED WIMMIN will join us for a night of glamorous electro / house grooviness and club classics.

Jon’s highly stylised dress sense and his skill at mixing an eclectic selection of tunes garnered praise all round and throughout the 1990’s he was a regular fixture in DJ Magazine’s top 100 best DJ’s in the world, coming 5th in 1996.
He has released numerous records, including two UK top 30 hits in the mid 90’s on the Perfecto label (‘Passion’ & Give Me Strength’) along with releases in 2004 on the Wall of Sound label under the moniker ‘The Visitor’ (‘Our Lips are Sealed’ & ‘European Love’).

Fearless-Aug2016-Weldmar-02Weldmar Hospicecare are challenging the Dorset public to prove how fearless they can be - by taking on their Firewalks this October.

Just as the name suggests, this is a barefoot walk over red-hot embers, measuring around 800 degrees Fahrenheit!

This year there are three opportunities to walk - on:

  • Friday 21st October 2016 at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park, Burton Bradstock
  • Sunday 23rd October 2016 at Bryanston School in Blandford
  • Friday 28th October at Joseph Weld Hospice in Dorchester

After more than 6 years of planning, Bridport Area Development Trust is about to start work on the restoration of the Literary and Scientific Institute building in East Street.  The Grade 2* listed building in East Street has been empty since 1997 and is currently on the national At Risk register.

The kiosk that stands on West Bay esplanade has been there since time immemorial withstanding the battering of the elements and standing the strongest of storms, with Margaret and John serving sustenance to all weary travellers.

playarea_dorset_policeThe concept of a "teenage playground" was developed as part of the first SUMMENTOR – a Summer mentoring project focusing on local junior school leavers who, it was felt, would struggle with the transition to Senior School. Involving children who were disadvantaged, the victims of bullying and rural isolation and, in some cases, with a disability, they were mentored by students from the Sir John Colfox Academy for three weeks over the Summer of 2006.
