Ooof – sorry, sorry – the Blackmore Vale March magazine turned into a huge great thing. It’ll be a long read, so I suggest you go make a pot of coffee!
Obviously we’re bursting with the news – starting with Dorset’s own Handforth (you know you want to read that)…
There’s also important news on local help for victims of Domestic Violence, the deathly seriousness of littering at Compton Abbas Airfield and the genuine surge towards shopping locally.
EVERYONE should read Rupert’s column this month – he’s written a handy short hand guide breaking down the Local Plan. It has massive, long-lasting impact for every Dorset resident, and needs your attention – complaining in two years time that 30,000 new homes are being built will be too late, this is your chance (also check your local town council’s website – most are holding extra-ordinary meetings to discuss the Local Plan. Do attend, listen, and use your voice).
Andy Palmer’s column is probably my favourite yet, Roger’s story about ‘Darzet being spoke in Newfoundland‘ is SO interesting, and then of course there’s Brigit’s Hairy Footed Flower Bees…
We’ve also got seven pages of Mother’s Day messages – I love them all. But we’ve tucked them away at the back, because you don’t need them til next week. No peeking.
There’s also pages of situations vacant for those looking for jobs in the Blackmore Vale March.
Don’t forget: every link is clickable, and there’s lots of video too. Do pinch and zoom the pages, 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. Not long now and we can break out and see a face or two for outside chatting. I honestly can’t wait.
In the meantime, come have a chat on Twitter, Facebook or Insta. Coffee’s at 11, and we like posh biscuits.
