January's Blackmore Vale magazine 2021 edition

Apologies we’re a day late – we know some people were so worried we weren’t going to print they even called to check. So kind, thanks David! The issue was probably 80% laid out when the magazine editing software rolled out a major update on Wednesay which caused the whole system to fail. *cries*
I had to start the entire 87 page magazine again from scratch Thursday morning, on software I’d never used… It’s really not been a fun 48hrs!

In January’s Blackmore Vale magazine we’re finally able to share the truth about the St Mary’s school purchase in Shaftesbury, and the truly astonishing job our local healthcare professionals have managed with the first stage of the vaccine rollout.
We’ve also received such a frustrated letter from the principal of Kingston Maurward that we gave him the page.


In January’s Blackmore Vale magazine Andy Palmer is reminiscing about Stalbridge in the 60s & 70s and Roger Guttridge is diving into Iwerne Minster’s past. We’re looking at the local property market, with some fascinating pro insider tips on buying and selling your home.
We’ve also got a huge Family Finance Feature (don’t flick past, I’m not sure how they managed it but the experts are genuinely interesting as well as informative. I learned loads!), covering all ends of the home money topics, from scary debts through to being the sandwich generation *raises hand in air*. Plus of course all our usual columnists, from gardening with Barry & Pete, to wildlife with Bridget and baking with Heather (your weekend breakfast will never look the same again).

Don’t forget: every link is clickable (including telephone numbers if you’re reading on your phone). Do pinch and zoom the pages, or simply double tap to zoom, and you can flip back and forth as you wish. And please, do share – you can share the whole magazine, or just a single page.Be good everyone, and please do stay warmly snugged up at home. If you’re bored, wander over here or to Twitter and come have a chat. Coffee’s at 11, and we like posh biscuits.
