April issue of The BV magazine is here :)


Inside this issue – angry farmers, happy potters, nightingales, rather a lot of equine magnificence, possibly the finest walk North Dorset has (I’m open to suggestions, but I doubt it’ll be beaten) and an 11-year-old bingo-caller. Frankly, it’s so jam-packed with Dorset goodness, it’d be rude not to.

Inside the April 24 issue of the BV magazine:

  • One Sturminster Newton farmer’s dramatic response to his lamb’s death by dog attack has fuelled an online debate – and a call for prosecution | Page 4
  • Lucy Kendall is only 19, and suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome. But she’s let neither get in the way of her art business| Page 98
  • Great Pottery Throw Down star Dan to be at the new Dorset Spring Show! | Page 13
  • North Dorset MP Simon Hoare shares his Dorset Island Discs (‘I deliberately failed my French O level out of spite’)| Page 29
  • The barriers are gone – and they had a £1.3m. Dorset residents had almost forgotten what Sturminster bridge looked like – we find out exactly why the works were so urgent | Page 8
  • From neighbours to award-winning booksellers, FOLDE’s founders transform their dream into a literary haven at the top of Gold Hill | Page 10
  • Tracie Beardsley discovers the timeless grind of Cann Mills, where the Stoates family blends tradition and modernity in the craft of organic milling | Page 23
