Rural Dorset gets £6m investment, and Minette Walters answers 19 random questions


Just a few days after the September issue of the BV magazine published, the nation mourned the death of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In recognition of this, Jenny Devitt leads this podcast with a statement from all of us at the BV, and with the words of Angus Campbell, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Dorset:  “Our loss is incalculable.”

In the first of The BV podcast’s September epsiodes, 

  • Boris Johnson’s levelling-up agenda comes to rural Dorset, bringing ‘lightning fast’ broadband and other benefits. 
  • Wincanton Sports Ground could close by the end of September, warn the trustees, if no one comes forward. 
  • Baffled by the exam system and what those grades actually mean? Kingston Maurward’s Principal Luke Rake has an explanation for all us confused ones.
  • Author Minette Walters takes on the Random 19 questions
  • Charlotte Tombs’ successful flower farming business grew out of one packet of sweet pea seeds and some Instagram inspiration.
