runningDorset Mental Health Forum is excited to announce a new partnership with Bridport Runners. Supported by Tanya, one of the Forum's local peer workers, the 'Running for Wellbeing' group meets every Wednesday evening in Bridport Town. The aim of this initiative is to engage those who are struggling with their mental health into a friendly , supportive running group where the focus is equally on getting out and being social as much as actually running.

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. 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 !
