Steam train attraction 
could boost economy 


A HUGE train turntable 
could be built on land 
near Weymouth Railway 
Station to pave the way 
for a regular steam train 
service through the 
town down to the ferry 
terminal in 2015. 

The project is being 
entirely financed by the 
West Coast Railway 
Company, which owns 
the famous Harry Potter 
Hogwarts Express. 

Their development 
manager Phil Marsh 


said that once the 
turntable is installed it 
could pave the way for a 
once a week regular 
steam service to Wey¬ 
mouth from Southamp¬ 
ton. 

He added that it could 
provide hundreds of 
thousands of pounds for 
Weymouth’s economy 
through extra visitors. 

Mr Marsh said the 
turntable, which is cur¬ 
rently being stored in 
Lancashire, would be an 


by Harry Walton 


attraction in its own 
right. 

He added: “At the mo¬ 
ment you have to have 
two trains hauling in to 
Weymouth because of 
the gradient, but with a 
turntable you could turn 
the engine round instead 
of having to go to Yeovil 
or Swanage to do that 
which costs thousands of 
pounds.

“If you keep the costs 
down then trips to Wey¬ 
mouth become much 
economically attractive 
and, once we get the 
turntable installed, a reg¬ 
ular once a week steam 
service from Southamp¬ 
ton to Weymouth would 
be possible.” 

He explained that many 
legal hurdles had to be 
overcome to get the 
turntable installed. 

Mr Marsh said: “The 
idea is to get the line be¬ 
tween Weymouth Rail¬ 
way Station and 
Weymouth ferry terminal 
reclassified with “non¬ 
passenger” status to en¬ 
able the turntable to be 
fitted on railway car park 
land with points changed 
by the steam train crew. 

“To get that you have to 
go through a legal 


process called “Network 
Change” which is what 
we are doing at the mo¬ 
ment. 

“The aspiration is to get 
the turntable installed 
and steam services run¬ 
ning down to the ferry 
terminal for the 2015 
season. 

“To achieve that the 
track must be recertified 
as fit for train use and 
that will involve digging 
it up in the next 12 
months.” 

The project by WCRC 
- which owns the Hog¬ 
warts Express of Harry 
Potter fame — forms part 
of growing interest in 
making greater use of the 
town’s historic tramway 
lines through increased 
steam train ventures and 
trips down the line to the 
ferry terminal.

BOB Kerr came to Dorchester to enjoy his retire¬ 
ment - but soon found himself busy. 

Over the years he has been a Citizens Advice Bu¬ 
reau trustee and is still actively involved. He also 
led the group which founded what is now the 
county-wide First Dorset credit union and he 
started and still chairs the Stop the Drop anti-lit¬ 
ter group in the county town. 

Mr Kerr was recently in London to receive a na¬ 
tional Campaign to Protect Rural England award 
for his work. 

Prior to retirement Mr Kerr spent his working 
life in the food industry, helping build up what 
was originally a small London-based company 
into one which today provides countless ready 
meals for supermarkets. The business today has 
factories at Chard as well as elsewhere. 


■ I GUESS you have witnessed huge changes in the 
food industry? 

Yes, when I started in Peckham after working for Kraft 
for about five years, we were making hand-filled sausages 
in natural casings and distributing them, initially, only to 
London. I did all sorts of jobs although I was billed as 
marketing manager. We soon expanded and bought a fac¬ 
tory in Chippenham from Walls, and then a factory in 
Chard where we started producing ready meals. The big 
chains were really frightened of the idea to begin with 
and it took us more than a year to get some of them to 
even come and have a look, but Sainsbury’s took us on 
and the volumes just went up and up. 

■ HOW did you come to settle in Dorset after such 
a long time in the London area? 

We had booked a holiday cottage in Fordington and just 
loved it here - the countryside, the proximity to the sea, 
old churches and the architecture of the buildings. 

When the time came to retire I tried to work part-time for 
a bit, but it didn’t really work out and after recruiting my 
replacement, I finally stopped work in about 1997. 

■ AND did you have any Dorset connections? 

None at all for me - but my wife’s father and grandfather 
had both been born in a house in Glyde Path Road, but 
that really was nothing to do with the reason why we 
came here. Her family includes the Greens and Hammetts 
and there are still relatives around at Evershot and Cerne 
Abbas. I had this vision of a cottage with, perhaps a 
stream at the bottom of the garden so I could go fishing, 
but my wife’s much more sensible and said we needed a 
place in town close to the hospital and the shops. She was 
right. 

■ HOW did you come to get involved with the CAB? 

Through Eileen, my wife. She had worked as an adviser 
when we were living in Beckenham and started work for 
the CAB when we moved to Dorchester. It was through 
her that I got persuaded to help out and worked on grant 
applications and ended up being a trustee for 15 years. I 



gave that up fairly recently when Dorchester merged with 
the Sherborne CAB. I saw that as a good time to let some¬ 
one else take over, although I am still involved in helping 
out with fundraising and publicity. 

■ IT'S obviously become a cause close to your 
heart? 

Yes, it does so much good, especially in the times we are 
living in now when there is so much need. Our volun¬ 
teers, and paid helpers, literally help thousands of local 
people a year and the numbers just keep on rising. We are 
constantly applying for funding, but so much of it is just 
for short-term projects. I think we’re currently looking to 
raise about £24,000 this year to keep services running. 

■ AND did the Credit Union also come about 
through the CAB? 

Yes, the CAB identified a need for one and I was per¬ 
suaded to get involved with the launch and then carried 
on as president for a year or two. We also founded the

South West Credit Union Forum and helped others set up. 
There was initially a lot of enthusiasm and it’s a really 
good idea but it’s never taken off like it has in the ‘States 
where you see Credit Unions with high street premises, 
just like the banks. But they had Government help there. 

■ AND how did your involvement in the anti-litter 
campaign. Stop the Drop, start? 

I saw a BBC Panorama programme about litter with Bill 
Bryson and was so impressed that I emailed him and from 
that started the local group. There wasn’t much guidance 
but Robin Bawtree at the Dorchester office of the Cam¬ 
paign to Protect Rural England did what he could to help 
and I linked in with the Dorset Campaign Against Litter, 
which CPRE had started, and have been going along ever 
since. 

■ DO you think Dorchester has a particular problem 
with litter? 

Yes, I couldn’t believe it. I just can’t understand why peo¬ 
ple would want to despoil such a beautiful place. It 
doesn’t happen everywhere. When I went to London the 
other week I walked along the South Bank and over West¬ 
minster Bridge and despite all those tens of thousands of 
people only saw one item of litter, which I stopped to pick 
up! Yet if you walk around Dorchester there is litter 
everywhere. People just throw things in the street expect¬ 
ing that someone will clear up after them. Smokers seem 
to be the worst, their cigarette butts are everywhere de¬ 
spite the dozens of butt bins we have put up. 

■ BUT isn't there legislation which can be used to 
stop it? 

Yes, but it seems the authorities, particularly in West 
Dorset are reluctant to prosecute people, or issue fixed 
penalty fines. We don’t want to go around picking up lit¬ 
ter, although we do - our aim is to stop it in the first place. 
People should respect the place where they live...I just 
don’t understand why so many people seem to tolerate it.

Council should be ashamed, say chalet users 

Business plan shelved while'other options explored' 


FURIOUS Greenhill chalet users have savagely criti¬ 
cised a debate on the future of the Weymouth seafront 
site as “a shambles”. 

Nearly 50 of them packed number one committee 
room to capacity for a meeting of Weymouth and Port¬ 
land management committee, but they left stunned and 
disillusioned with some so devastated at council “inac¬ 
tion” that they vowed to put their chalets up for sale. 

Many said they felt let down since the council had set 
a deadline for the Chalet Users Community Group 
(CUCG) to produce its business plan for taking over the 
running of the chalets and associated facilities which it 
had met. 

But their expectation of debate on whether the council 
should or should not support their bid wasn’t met. 

Instead the meeting first voted seven to three against 
immediately backing their business case and then voted 
eight to one with one abstension in favour of inviting 
the CUCG and another community groups to submit 
lease proposals for the chalets and to also openly market 
the lease by informal tender. 

There was uproar and disbelief among chalet users, 
cries of “No! No!” and outbursts of “What a load of rub¬ 
bish!” 


by Harry Walton 


And when the dust settled after the vote one user said: 
“What an absolute shambles!” while another said: 
“That’s it. We’re selling. They are just playing for time. 
It is disgusting. They should be ashamed of them¬ 
selves!” 

A visibly stunned CUCG spokesman Janet Cridland 
said: “We were totally unimpressed by the debate. One 
councillor admitted he hadn’t even read our business 
plan. Who else hadn’t? We will now be meeting soon to 
discuss our way forward.” 

It was all in stark contrast to an upbeat start with cheer¬ 
ing for Mrs Cridland when she said they would not settle 
for “make do and mend” and that the CUCG’s plan was 
“a sustainable option” which was cost effective. 

Alderman Peter Rendall said he was “very concerned” 
that the council appeared to be “paranoid for selling 
everything off that it owns”. He urged councillors to 
keep “the jewels in the crown of this borough”, its her¬ 
itage for which members were the custodians. 

And there were more cheers for Councillor Gill Tay¬ 
lor’s suggestion of accepting the CUCG business case 


Rail turntable could bring steam trains to town 


FROM page 1 

bury said: “We have no 
plans to start a rail attrac¬ 
tion along the lines at the 
moment but we do want to 
hear people’s views on the 
idea of using the rails as a 
heritage attraction 

whether it be steam or 
diesel. 

“We know it will take a 


bit of work to bring the 
line out of mothballs but it 
can be done. It could be 
very beneficial for Wey¬ 
mouth’s economy.” 

Weymouth and Portland 
transport spokesman and 
Deputy Mayor Councillor 
Christine James said: “If 
the turntable comes to 
Weymouth it will give us 



another string to our trans¬ 
port bow as well as a fresh 
attraction in the town. 

“Steam trains are a pop¬ 
ular visit to Weymouth 
and anything which makes 
them more efficient and 
cheaper has to be wel¬ 
comed.” 

Weymouth and Portland 
economic regeneration of¬ 
ficer Gareth Jones said: 
“This is an exciting oppor¬ 
tunity to link steam tours 
with a whole range of 
Weymouth attractions. 
The whole matter is due to 
go before the Rail Regula¬ 
tor for consultation soon.” 

Weymouth and Portland 
economic development 
spokesman Councillor 
Ray Nowak said: “This 


idea offers great potential 
for the town and it should 
be explored. 

“An increase in the num¬ 
ber of steam trains would 
be an attraction and I hope 
the Rail Regulator gives 
the project its blessing be¬ 
cause it would have im¬ 
pacts on the whole of the 
town.” 

Weymouth and Portland 
tourism spokesman Coun¬ 
cillor Rachel Rogers said: 
“Clearly I am very inter¬ 
ested in anything which 
brings more tourists into 
Weymouth, particularly if 
we can attract them off 
season as well as on. I 
look forward to hearing 
how this project is pro¬ 
gressing.” 


Bike stolen from garden 

THIEVES have entered a shed in the back garden 
of a property on Granby Close, Weymouth and 
stolen a black and white Apollo Paradox Mountain 
Bike with a 17" frame. 

Anyone who saw anything or who has any infor¬ 
mation should contact Dorset Police on 101 or 
Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting Crime 
Number 026037. 


without delay and backing it with a £50,000 grant or loan 
to make it work. 

But hopes were soon dashed when Councillor Colin 
Huckle became the first of a number of speakers to ques¬ 
tion this approach, saying that time must be allowed for 
other community groups to come forward and to “check 
the market to protect the council’s financial interest”. 

Dismay became derision when Councillor Ian Bruce 
admitted he had recently been on holiday and hadn’t read 
the CUCG case, adding that a decision could not be 
reached “on a whim” and that the council’s approach had 
to be “legally defensible” or it could be challenged later. 

There were more cheers for Deputy Mayor Councillor 
Christine James when she said: “We asked the CUCG to 
produce a business case. How can we sit here now and 
say that we are not going to take up that case but that we 
are going to open it out...to move the goalposts? We 
don’t want to be sitting here a year ahead still discussing 
this. The whole thing is getting beyond a joke now and 
has gone on far too long.” 

She and Councillor Ian Roebuck proposed accepting 
the CUCG case as public gallery comment peppered dis¬ 
cussion, so much so that Councillor Mike Goodman 
rounded on one protestor and angrily asked to be allowed 
to make his comments without interruption. 

He said: “I am sympathetic with users’ views but I 
don’t believe we invited a community solution to the ex¬ 
clusion of all other options. 

“As an authority we are in dire straits. We cannot afford 
to maintain community facilities where another option 
exists to do so without impact on the public purse. I 
didn’t expect to come here today to consider one bid to 
the exclusion of all others.” 

But Mr Roebuck said the CUCG had met its deadline 
yet councillors were effectively being asked “to put a six 
month delay into the process”. 

He added: “What is being suggested here is a recipe 
for delay. These recommendations are being made to 


allow the chalets to fall into disuse.” 

But Councillor Rachel Rogers said a six-month delay 
was “not significant”, chairman Councillor Mike Byatt 
said the council had to abide by proper process to make 
sure there was no “inbuilt unfairness” and Councillor 
Ray Nowak said opting to allow community groups to 
make proposals and for marketing of the lease by infor¬ 
mal tender was “a win win situation”.

Tri-authority partnership will 
give councils a 'stronger voice' 


THREE Dorset councils say they plan to work more 
closely together in a bid to save £6million to support 
valued services. 

North Dorset District Council (NDDC), West Dorset 
District Council (WDDC) and Weymouth and Port¬ 
land Borough Council (WPBC) will be bidding for al¬ 
most £1.5 milli on from the Transformation Challenge 
Award fund set up by the Government to help local 
authorities transform how they work and rethink the 
way services are delivered. 

The full bid will be submitted in two parts by Octo¬ 
ber 1st. 

The first bid from NDDC will propose that the three 
councils share a chief executive and senior manage¬ 
ment team by March 31st, 2015. 

The second bid from WDDC and WPBC will pro¬ 
pose combining and developing joint services with 
NDDC. 

An “expression of interest” document says the pro¬ 
posed ground-breaking tri-authority partnership would 
give the councils a stronger voice and larger influence 
within the county and on a larger stage. 

It would also enable more flexible arrangements for 
democratic decision making, improve strategic plan¬ 
ning for infrastructure and services in the three areas 
as well as the county and sub-region and allow savings 
from shared systems, processes and services as well 
as releasing resources to strengthen and protect the 
services that customers value most. 

It would also prompt a review of the councils’ office 
accommodation with a view to making savings and 
driving regeneration and enable the councils to pursue 
commercial opportunities to generate income 

A joint statement by NDDC leader Deborah Croney, 
WDDC leader Robert Gould and Weymouth and Port¬ 
land corporate affairs spokesman Mike Byatt said: 
“The partners are discussing joining together to get 


by Harry Walton 


the very best from one another’s achievements and ex¬ 
periences and to find additional ways to add value to 
communities at less cost. 

“The partners believe that together they could pro¬ 
vide a better and more flexible range of services, fo¬ 
cussed on the needs and priorities of their 
communities and at less cost to the taxpayer.” 

The proposed partnership would cover over half the 
rural county and serve a population of 235,000. The 
majority of the savings, an estimated £6million by 
2019-2020, would come from better use of assets such 
as office buildings. 

A business case will now be worked up for council¬ 
lors to consider in early autumn. A full bid will be sub¬ 
mitted in October 2014. 

Under any partnership, the trilogy claims that all 
three councils would retain their sovereign status and 
have already been on a journey of transformation. 

NDDC has focused on community development, 
providing support for small businesses, development 
of the workforce and service redesign. This included 
identifying community priorities and transferring 
some services to community bodies ranging from 
town councils to newly created charitable companies. 
The council has also developed significant service 
partnerships with other councils. Together this has led 
to the council’s ‘mixed economy’ of service delivery. 

WDDC and WPBC focused on creating a combined 
management and staff structure with joined up serv¬ 
ices and a focus on joint economic development 
which included the successful hosting of the Olympic 
sailing events. 

In doing this all three partners achieved significant 
net budget savings of around 40 per cent. 


...But job cuts are likely as a result 


MERGER plans for dis¬ 
trict councils based in 
Dorchester, Weymouth 
and Blandford are press¬ 
ing ahead - with many 
staff likely to be moved 
to Dorchester to work. 

Job losses are expected 
at all three authorities as 
they struggle to save mil¬ 
lions of pounds lost in 


Government funding 
cuts. 

West Dorset District 
Council and Weymouth 
and Portland Borough 
Council claim they have 
saved £3million by their 
collaboration so far - but 
have lost around 70 
posts. Some Weymouth 
staff are already working 


in Dorchester and it is 
expected another 100 
will follow them. 

Between them the 
three councils have to 
save £6million over the 
next five years and is al¬ 
ready working on a new 
shared management 
structure. 

A bid for £1.5million 


is currently being sub¬ 
mitted from the Govern¬ 
ment’s Transformation 
Challenge Award fund to 
help councils change 
how they work. 

The bid proposes the 
three councils share a 
chief executive and sen¬ 
ior management team by 
next March, 2015.

'Weymouth and Portland is facing great challenges 7 


New chief executive speaks of future 


WEYMOUTH and Portland’s new chief executive 
has had a love affair with the area for 27 years. 

Matt Prosser, 44, has just come to post from South 
Oxfordshire but first came to Weymouth and Portland 
in 1987 as a 17-year-old on an A level geography 
field trip. 

He said: “I stayed in a seafront hotel and it was love 
at first sight.” 

So when the post of chief executive fell vacant it 
suited him perfectly on two counts - he loved the area 
and wanted to work in a dual partnership authority. 

Mr Prosser said: “Weymouth and Portland has a se¬ 
rious financial situation, so my focus has to be pro¬ 
viding the best quality services at the lowest possible 
cost. 

“Whatever people think of our partnership with 
West Dorset, finance is at the heart of it. That part¬ 
nership has saved us millions of pounds of taxpayers’ 
money and we hope to save millions more but, most 
importantly, we have done so while saving public 
services. 

“I am aware that some people feel the partnership 
is West Dorset dominated but I feel it is two sovereign 
authorities each doing the best they can for their res¬ 
idents. It is a partnership. 

“Residents must understand that Weymouth and 
Portland is facing great challenges between now and 
2020 to make sure we can continue to deliver services 
despite a 60 percent cut in Government grants. 

“The council has to have a great relationship with 
its residents because we now get more than half our 
income directly from the public as council tax and 
paid for services.” 

He said that relationship was typified by the debate 
over the future of Greenhill Gardens’ chalets and fa¬ 
cilities. 

Mr Prosser said: “Some would say that the chalets 


by Harry Walton 


are only accessible to those who can afford them so 
why are they paying for them whereas the gardens 
are publicly accessible so there is a greater relation¬ 
ship in maintaining that access. 

“But the council is facing a difficult decision time 
over what services it can provide and at what cost, so 
we need to explore all avenues and with the chalets 
that includes community and private interest possi¬ 
bilities.” 

He also feels that there is much potential for a trans¬ 
formation of the North Quay harbourside with the de¬ 
velopment of the council’s own offices site in an 
approach to extend the picturesque look of the lower 
harbour into the inner harbour. 

Mr Prosser said: “We have influenced the process 
for the apartment development on the old fire station 
site and we have similar intentions for our offices site 
to try and produce a flowing look to the quayside 
which reflects the historic look of the lower harbour.” 

The harbourside area also includes ferry company 
Condor’s operation and the ongoing negotiations to 
try and keep its future service in the port. 

Mr Prosser said: “The issue for us is that Condor 
currently has a five-year operating licence and may 
well get a ten-year licence from the Channel Islands 
which controls the ramp agreement. 

“If the Channel Islands do grant that ten-year agree¬ 
ment then Condor can invest in a large new ferry 
which is currently in Australia. 

“Condor says it has access concerns with the new 
ferry for berth three in Weymouth and needs to be of¬ 
fered berth one, but up to £10 million will need to be 
invested in the harbour to resolve those access prob¬ 
lems and the council doesn’t have that sort of money. 


plans for borough 

“So we had to talk to the Government about cash 
support which we did and they directed us to the 
Local Enterprise Partnership where we have bid for 
£10 million for the project but with no guarantee of 
success. 

“We have also written to five other ferry operators 
in case Condor pulls out of Weymouth but none of 
them were interested at this stage in providing a serv¬ 
ice. 

“We understand Condor’s business position that 
they can’t fund the work but neither can the council, 
so we now have to work towards a way forward, part 
of which includes a possible future without Condor.” 

Mr Prosser also spoke about Weymouth and Port¬ 
land’s general future and said its two-way partnership 
with West Dorset could become three-way with North 
Dorset. 

He added: “This will hinge on good management 
and being able to maintain services. 

“I think the future is bright for Weymouth and Port¬ 
land. It has a lot to offer, the economy is starting to 
grow and we have got to be ready to capitalise on 
that. 

“We have a good team here and we are shaping it 
to fit the borough’s future. We have to tailor services 
to meet people’s needs such as council tax payments 
and it may in future be possible to make those pay¬ 
ments in outlets such as local shops to end the current 
expensive method of collection by the council. 

“We get 90,000 people through our doors here every 
year and we need to work with residents to change 
that behaviour to suit our smaller proposed offices in 
the Mulberry Centre which could be operational by 
summer 2015. 

“What I don’t want to have happen is for the council 
to leave this site and nothing be done with it. We have 
to have a plan and carry it out.”

Council consider Condor contingency plans 


CONDOR could operate its giant new ferry 
from Poole not Weymouth with two of its 
smaller ferries continuing to run a service 
from Weymouth to the Channel Islands. 

Councillors are also thrashing out contin¬ 
gency plans for the development of the ferry 
terminal peninsula should Condor decide to 
axe its ferry services from Weymouth. 

Both possibilities emerged during what 
Weymouth and Portland council described as 
“productive discussions” with Jersey and 
Guernsey about the cross-Channel ferry link 
between the Channel Islands and Weymouth. 

The borough council, which is looking at a 
number of options, said it will continue to 
work with Condor Ferries, Jersey and 
Guernsey over the future of the service. 

Corporate affairs spokesman Councillor 
Mike Byatt said: “We understand that Condor 
has a current five year operating agreement 
with the Channel Islands that it is seeking to 
replace with a longer term deal in order that 
it can invest significant sums in a larger ves¬ 
sel. 

“The council has invested £4.5 million in re¬ 
cent quayside repairs which had to be done 
and is not in a position to invest further 


by Harry Walton 


money to accommodate the new vessel.” 

The borough council said it understands that 
it is likely that any potential agreement be¬ 
tween Condor and the Channel Islands - 
which could be for ten years - would be in 
place by late summer allowing Condor to in¬ 
vest in the new vessel, the Austal, which may 
operate by late spring 2015. 

Mr Byatt said: “Condor has always stated its 
preference is to sail from Weymouth as the 
distance and time it takes to cross the Channel 
is less. 

“It is our understanding that Condor has 
three other catamarans in operation, one of 
which works the routes to France and has at 
least seven years operation left in it and two 
others that currently service Weymouth and 
Poole. We are unaware of the service life left 
in these. 

“We will continue discussions with Condor 
to see whether these vessels could continue to 
operate from berth three alongside operating 
the new vessel from Poole Harbour if we can¬ 
not find external funding for the new berth. 


“These are complex commercial negotia¬ 
tions, but we are in regular dialogue with Con¬ 
dor and now the Channel Islands to understand 
the implications for Weymouth.” 

An agreement between the council and Con¬ 
dor is in place for Condor to operate from 
Weymouth until Summer 2015 at the very 
least. 

Mr Byatt said: “We continue to look at all the 
options available to us, including if Condor 
decides it no longer wishes to operate from the 
borough. 

“We have sought support from the Govern¬ 
ment and also through the Local Enterprise 
Partnership to access funds for the structural 
works that would be required. Alongside this 
we will be working on plans for the peninsula 
site should Condor decide not to continue to 
run a ferry service from Weymouth in the fu¬ 
ture. 

“We will continue to assess the business 
case for Condor’s continuation alongside the 
business case for the development of the 
peninsula as part of our strategic economic vi¬ 
sion. We will endeavour to make the best de¬ 
cision in the interests of the borough and its 
residents.” 


Fort prepares to light up the sky for maritime history spectacular 


WEYMOUTH'S Nothe Fort is 
getting ready to stage the 
town's first major Son et Lu- 
miere spectacular. 

The four-night sound and 
light event will run from Sep¬ 
tember 10th-13th displaying 
the maritime history of Wey¬ 
mouth and Portland with a 
colourful firework finale. 

Scenes will start with the Ar¬ 
mada and go on to the Black 


Death, smugglers and wrecks, 
sea storms, George III, World 
War I, the D-Day departures of 
World War II, Navy Days, the 
1950s-1960s and the lifeboats 
before ending with the 2012 
Olympic sailing events. 

Organiser Jane Chandler said: 
"Each night will lead to the 
whole production cast out on 
the stage joined by an Olympic 
torch bearer and ambassadors. 


"It will be a truly spectacular 
experience and one that any¬ 
one who sees it will remember 
for the rest of their life. 

"Each night only has a maxi¬ 
mum of 600 tickets available 
and demand is expected to be 
heavy because we have had so 
much interest in the event. 

"It will be a community pro¬ 
duction led by Martine Burt 
and including many local 


groups such as Weymouth 
Drama Club, WOWYouth Musi¬ 
cal Theatre, Weymouth Oper¬ 
atic Society, Key Theatre Arts 
and many others. 

"The whole fort will be lit up 
and it will be a really eye-catch¬ 
ing production." 

Tickets cost £18 for adults 
and £15 for children while 
group rate bookings are also 
available. 



THOSE who went down to the woods 
soon found themselves surrounded by 
teddy bears in Weymouth. 

The Friends of Nothe Gardens were 
holding their eighth annual Teddy 
Bear’s Picnic with a host of free fun 
and entertainment. 

There was a best dressed teddy 
competition, story-telling, games, a 
teddy bear nature trail and a raffle 
with several great prizes including a 
meal for four at the Nothe Tavern. 

Picnic co-ordinator Roger Genge 
said: “I’ve been amazed at the inge¬ 
nuity of the teddy outfits, large and 
small bears being smartly dressed for 
the occasion. 


“We are very grateful to all the local 
businesses which have donated prizes 
for the raffle which amounts to more 
than £300 worth of prizes.” 

This year the friends welcomed 
Weymouth and District Model Engi¬ 
neering Society which took along 
some of their engines for display and 
for people to ride on. 

Mr Genge said: “More than 140 
people turned up and they had a fan¬ 
tastic day with everyone really enjoy¬ 
ing themselves. 

“It was a wonderful way to promote 
the gardens and any money we raise 
will be put back into providing extra 
facilities.”

Full steam ahead for annual Chickerell vintage show 



■ CHICKERELL Mayor Councillor Lynda Wise 



■ NIGEL Moody on his three-inch scale compound steam engine 


CLOUDS of smoke billowed across 
Moor Farm when it hosted the 16th an¬ 
nual Chickerell Steam and Vintage 
Show. 

Twenty steam egines puffed their 
presence to the delight of thousands of 
people who visited the two-day event. 

Show co-ordinator Andy Spracklen 
said: “This year was our biggest show. 

“We had nearly 400 vehicle exhibits 
as well as market stalls and sideshows 
including a full western town for the 
Portsmouth Wild West Association. 

“There was even a demonstration of 
lawn mower racing and we had chain¬ 
saw wood carving, graffiti artists and a 
huge tent full of various crafts. 


“Model owners had a number of dis¬ 
plays and the small lake on the farm 
was full of model boats. 

“Some of any profit we make will go 
to local charities and the rest towards 
staging the 2015 event which will in¬ 
clude a round of the British champi¬ 
onship for mini tractor pulling.” 

The event was opened by Chickerell 
Mayor Councillor Lynda Wise who 
said: “I think it is fantastic for us to be 
able to have an event like this in Chick¬ 
erell. 

“It was nice to see people travelling 
from far and wide to support the event 
and it was a pleasure to open it. I love 
steam engines!”

TAHER and Clem with their catch of the day 


Restaurant says: "You fish, we cook!' 


Third time lucky for 
holiday let plans 

IT was third time lucky when planners backed a 
scheme to demolish storage barns and build five 
holiday lets in their place at Watery Lane, Weymouth. 

The scheme had been deferred twice over design 
and drainage concerned, but a meeting of Wey¬ 
mouth and Portland planning committee finally 
passed it on an eight to one vote. 

Former River Wey Society chairman Nigel Fraser 
said the scheme posed drainage concerns which 
would affect the river, but the committee liked the 
proposal which will create three two-bedroom lets 
and two three-bedroom lets. 

Councillor Paul Kimber said the design "looks a lot 
better" and the proposal would be "good for the 
local economy". 

The committee also heard that an attenuation tank 
would be enlarged to accommodate drainage of the 
development. 

Don't forget your event 
licence this summer 

COUNCIL staff are reminding anyone organising an 
event this summer not to forget to get a licence. 

They say that any event having a beer tent or sell¬ 
ing any alcohol must get a licence and that a Tem¬ 
porary Event Notice can be used to cover one-off 
events. 

It costs £21 to apply, but applications must be sub¬ 
mitted to the district or borough council at least two 
weeks before. 

Anyone providing entertainment, such as a live 
band, may also need a Temporary Event Notice. 

More information is available at: www.dorset- 
foryou.com/licences/temporary-event-notice or 
contact Business Licensing at West Dorset District 
Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council 
on 01305 252214. 


A NEW food concept in Weymouth is offering an¬ 
glers a chance to have the fish they catch cooked 
in a restaurant and brought to their table as a 
meal. 

The Dining Room in St Mary Street has created a 
lot of interest with the launch of theirYou Fish, We 
Cook offer. 

Chef Taher Jibet said: "It is something I have 
wanted to do ever since we opened here in 2011. 

"We already do cooking schools and supper 
clubs and this latest idea is another extension of 
what we offer. 


"We work with Wild Frontier 2 boat skipper Clem 
Carter so we know the fish that will be brought to 
us will be sustainable. 

"The catch will only just have come out of the 
sea, so we let the fish do the talking and cook it to 
bring out its flavour for the successful angler to 
enjoy." 

He added that any fish caught would form part 
of a three-course feast offered at £20 per head. 

Taher said: "So far we have had cod, Pollack and 
turbot brought in and the anglers involved really 
loved their meals." 


Extra date added to island 
conservation consultation 

A FURTHER date has been added to the drop in ses¬ 
sions over the Portland conservation areas consulta¬ 
tion. 

It will be held in the lobby at Tesco, Easton, Port¬ 
land, today (Wednesday, July 9th) from 9am-7pm. 

Weymouth and Portland council is asking Portland 
residents to have their say on conservation areas 
across the island during a public consultation this 
summer. 

Residents are being given the chance to say what 
they think about studies on the character of the 
Grove, Underhill, Portland (Easton, Reforne, Straits & 
Wakeham) and Weston conservation areas during 
the consultation which runs until August 4th. 

Conservation areas are places of special architec¬ 
tural or historic interest that are protected to ensure 
people can continue to enjoy their character for 
years to come. 

The borough council is responsible for deciding 
which places in Weymouth and Portland should be 
conservation areas and for ensuring that their spe¬ 
cial qualities are safeguarded. 

Studies and comment forms are also available at 
the Royal Breakwater Hotel, Castletown; The Paper 
Shop, Fortuneswell andTophill Library, Straits. 

Other drop-in sessions were held at St George's 
Centre, Reforne on June 25th and at St John's Church 
Hall, Fortuneswell, on July 2nd. 

For more information email planning@westdorset- 
weymouth.gov.uk or phone the borough council's 
Assistant Conservation Officer Shelley Saltman on 
01305 252388.

chairty’s plea for funds as they face potenital closure. 
After seeing Dorset Blind Association’s plea to raise 
additional funds for its young blind club, or face clo¬ 
sure, Basepoint Business Centres Ltd offered the char¬ 
ity the final £3,000 it needed to hit its £12,000 total. 

Dorset Blind Association is an independent charity 
supporting people with sight loss throughout the 
county. 

The charity does not receive any fixed central or 
local government funding and relies entirely on a 
combination of voluntary donations, membership fees 
and grants. 


The charity needed to raise £12,000 to save its 
young blind club and launched a social media cam¬ 
paign asking people to post photos to social media 
representing what they would miss if they lost their 
sight, using the hash tag: #whatwouldyoumiss. 

After seeing the appeal on the news, Basepoint con¬ 
tacted Dorset Blind and arranged the donation. 

Carly Thompson, Regional Manager at Basepoint, 
said: “We’re owned by a charitable trust, The Act 
Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the 
quality for of life for those in need, so as soon as we 
heard about Dorset Blind’s appeal, we wanted to help 
- such charities are vital for the local community. 


“When I called to donate, the reaction from all at 
Dorset Blind was one of sheer delight - I am just so 
pleased we helped them hit their goal.” 

Dorset Blind’s Fundraising Manager, Jaya Da 
Costa, added: “Without the ongoing support and 
goodwill we receive from individuals, charitable 
trusts, companies and other organisations we would 
not be able to develop and deliver our essential range 
of services. 

“All donations, however big or small, help us to 
make a real, positive difference to the lives of visually 
impaired people in Dorset so we are delighted to re¬ 
ceive Basepoint’s kind donation.”

Dorset men support Mosaic charity 


THE Society of Dorset Men’s latest 
charity initiative is Mosaic which 
has supported many bereaved chil¬ 
dren, young people and their fami¬ 
lies all over the county since 2007. 

Parent trustee June Carter from 
Weymouth received the £300 
cheque from society vice-chairman 
Andrew Prowse. 

Mrs Carter said: “I’m absolutely 
thrilled. Mosaic is such an engaging 
charity. We help put broken lives 
back together again. We are all very 
grateful for the donation which will 


fund one of our residential camps at 
Leeson House in Langton Matra- 
vers. 

Mr Prowse said: “Any bereave¬ 
ment in a family is tragic enough, 
but when a child dies that is even 
more upsetting. We like to support 
Dorset charities that do good work 
and deserve better recognition for 
the effort they put in to improve the 
lives of the people of Dorset." 

Based at Milborne St Andrew, 
Mosaic offers a pathway of support 
and guidance for bereaved children, 


young people and their families. 

They offer support to those facing 
the death of a loved one. Children 
are encouraged to manage their 
emotions safely through storytelling 
and creativity. The residential 
camps allow children and young 
people to remember their special 
person, share their experiences and 
have some fun. 

Mosaic offers bespoke training to 
professionals working with be¬ 
reaved children and young people,

Temperatures soar as town sees super sunny month 


WEYMOUTH has just enjoyed its 
eighth sunniest June since weather 
records began way back in 1886. 

And Weymouth weatherman 
Bob Poots said that 2014 also 
broke the record for the highest 


June minimum average tempera¬ 
ture which reached 13.1 Centi¬ 
grade. 

Rain for June was down more 
than 30 percent on average at just 
29.7mm, bringing the annual total 


so far to 561mm or more than 
224mm above average. 

Sunshine by contrast was 30 per¬ 
cent above average at more than 
292 hours with sun shining on 
every day of the month. 


Veterans praise forces weekend 

MORE than one hundred members of the Aden 
Veterans Association (AVA) and their guests have 
praised the recent Armed Forces weekend in Wey¬ 
mouth. 

The group was the largest number of Aden vet¬ 
erans ever to attend the event. 

Their visit included a gala dinner at the Riviera 
Hotel attended by Weymouth and Portland 
Mayor Kate Wheller, AVA patron Colonel Brian 
Carter and many other dignitaries. 

Evening entertainment was provided by the 
Decaddettes singing songs from the 1940s, 1950s 
and 1960s while a raffle raised more than £300 for 
the Weymouth charity Alabare which has a home 
in the town to care for ex-servicemen and 
women. 

The Aden veterans group later joined a huge 
seafront service and parade which they hailed as 
"the best parade for a number of years". 

Members also assembled at the Weymouth and 
Portland council offices at North Quay for an 
Armed Forces flag raising ceremony hosted by 
the Mayor who took time to make a special men¬ 
tion of The Aden Veterans Association. 

The AVA in the West of England made special 
mention of Mrs Sylvia Johnson of Chalbury Close, 
Preston, "for her unstinting help in bringing this 
venture together". 

She is already starting to plan for 2015. 

Refresher theory course for drivers 

A NEW Dorset Driver Gold theory refresher ses¬ 
sion is available to book now. 

It will be hosted at Weymouth Community Fire 
Station on Radipole Lane on September 5th at 
10am. 

The two hour theory session to refresh and up¬ 
date driving knowledge costs just £5.

The Christian Column 


AS i see it ... 

by Geoff Treleaven 


Limiting God 

I BELIEVE in miracles, but not everyone else 
does. Some try to limit God in their minds al¬ 
though God is not limited at all. There are Bible 
stories where the phrase: “Is anything too hard for 
the Lord?” was asked (Genesis 18:14). And an¬ 
other where we are told: “With God all things are 
possible” (Matthew 19:26). 

One of the mysteries of life is whether God still 
heals the sick. Most Christians believe He is able, 
but when He does it seems to be the exception 
rather than the norm. However, there have been 
occasions when there has been no doubt whatever 
that the healing was miraculous. 

One such occasion of which I knew happened 
some years ago. A Christian couple were in¬ 
formed that a medical team had concluded their 
baby son’s brain was in an absolute mess! 

At our evening church service, during his 
prayers, our pastor knew God was telling him to 
pray specifically for the baby’s healing and he did. 
When the medical team met the next day, they 
found the baby’s brain had been completely 
healed. 

A Christian doctor I knew was present both 
times with the medical team and at the church 
service and confirmed these facts.

Windsurf opportunity for unemployed 


FIFTEEN young, unem¬ 
ployed people from 
across Dorset have been 
selected to train as wind¬ 
surf instructors. 

The Chesil Trust has 
put together funding for 
an innovative project 


which is being run by the 
Official Test Centre 
(OTC) at the National 
Sailing Academy on 
Portland. 

Using a grant from the 
Department of Work and 
Pensions (DWP), along 


with sponsorship from 
housing association Syn¬ 
ergy Housing and train¬ 
ing input from the Royal 
Yachting Association, the 
OTC will teach the group 
of 18-24-year-old unem¬ 
ployed people to wind¬ 


surf and achieve Start 
Windsurfing and Non- 
Planing Intermediate 
qualifications. The five 
most promising partici¬ 
pants will then get the 
chance to train as wind¬ 
surfing instructors. 


The project follows on 
from a pilot undertaken 
in 2013 when three un¬ 
employed 18-24 year- 
olds were successfully 
trained as fully qualified 
sailing instructors. Their 
experience has changed 
their lives and all three 
are now employed as 
sailing instructors - in 
Dorset, in Devon and in 
Australia. 

Tris Best, Managing 
Director of the OTC said: 
“This is a very exciting 
project to be involved in, 
with stage one providing 
the 15 participants with a 
proper insight into the in¬ 
dustry of windsurfing 
and the opportunities 
available. The lucky five 
progressing onto stage 
two will be fully im¬ 
mersed into life as a 
windsurfing instructor, 
setting them up for life¬ 
changing opportunities to 
travel the world, meet 
like-minded people and 
experience new cultures. 
It is an enjoyable, vibrant 


industry full of opportu¬ 
nities.” 

Jinnie Anderson, Provi¬ 
sion Manager for the 
Greater Wessex District 
of the DWP added: “We 
are delighted to be work¬ 
ing in partnership to pro¬ 
vide this fantastic 
opportunity for our 
young claimants in the 
area. Previous experi¬ 
ence has shown that in¬ 
novative programmes 
such as this are very ben¬ 
eficial to young people 
on their journey into 
work.” 

John Tweed, Chairman 
of the Chesil Trust said: 
“We are delighted to 
have secured funding 
from the DWP and Syn¬ 
ergy Housing for the 
project. We know from 
our experience of fund¬ 
ing last year's sailing in¬ 
structor's programme that 
the participants couldn't 
wait to get to the sessions 
and the outcome in gain¬ 
ing employment has 
changed their lives.” 


Old Folk songs given new lease of life 


LOCAL musicians are coming together to perform a 
concert of early 20th century folksongs collected from 
rural communities in South and West Dorset. 

The songs were collected by brothers Henry and 
Robert Hammond who arrived in Dorset on their bi¬ 
cycles in 1905. Over a period of two years they col¬ 
lected around 600 folksongs, many from the South 
Dorset Ridgeway area from singers such as Marina 
Russell in Upwey and Robert Barratt in Puddletown. 
These songs are now available both online and in 
manuscript form, representing a resource of local 
music, story and folklore. 

Following the success of the Artsreach West Gallery 
carol workshops and concerts last autumn, Tim Lay- 
cock and Phil Humphries have led a new series of 
workshops over the summer, where those taking part 
explored the local folk song repertoire and practised 
the art of solo folksong performance. 

This concert forms the culmination of the project and 
will feature solo performances, choral arrangements 
and instrumental interludes drawn from one of Eng¬ 
land’s most important repositories of traditional song. 

The project is part of the South Dorset Ridgeway 
Landscape Partnership series of projects, and is sup¬ 
ported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. 

The concert will take place on Sunday, July 13th, 
7:30pm at Portesham Village Hall. Tickets are £5 
available by phoning 01305 269512. 



■ BROTHERS Henry and Robert Hammond who 
collected more than 600 folksngs from Dorset in 
the early 20th century which will be perfomred 
at a concert later this month

Weymouth Matters 


A personal View by HARRY WALTON 


Councillors right to be cautious 


How much! In my day... 

THE older you get the more things 
you've seen which can help put some 
arguments into perspective. 

Two teenagers knocking back tins of 
lager in the sunshine on Weymouth Es¬ 
planade were moaning about the price 
of booze, one of them telling the other 
that his dad said he could remember 
when drinkers could buy a pint for less 
than 20 pence. 

Now it costs 15 times as much, he 
said, the two drifting into a different 
conversation as they stood up and 
strolled off.....leaving an elderly couple 
smiling at them from the next bench 
up. 

A few moments passed and the 
women asked her husband if he re¬ 
membered Lyons Corner House. 

He said he did and she asked if he 
could remember having coffee there. 

He replied: "I do. It was a penny half¬ 
penny and very nice it was too." 

Interesting how not just beer prices 
have gone up but coffee too. 

A modern cup now costs about £2, a 
staggering 320 times as much as that 
nostalgic coffee at Lyons! 


SOME modern issues are starting to knock 
on Weymouth and Portland’s door with the 
pending inquiry into the Navitas Bay wind 
park off the Isle of Wight. 

Only members of such august bodies as the 
Flat Earth Society and Elvis Lives! might 
question the need for clean sustainable en¬ 
ergy. 

So on the face of it electricity generated by 
giant wind turbines in the English Channel 
should get enthusiastic support from every¬ 
one, but the course of true power - like true 
love - is rarely smooth. 

Weymouth and Portland councillors have 


just sent their views on the scheme off to go 
before the inquiry and they are broadly in 
favour of the park. 

But - and there always is a but - they have 
a number of concerns they want taken into ac¬ 
count including the impact on ferries from 
Poole, cmise liners visiting Portland, the local 
fishing industry, rescues in adverse weather 
conditions and the impact on wildlife. 

Times are hard for Weymouth and Portland, 
so I was particularly impressed with the way 
councillors didn’t fall for the oldest trick in 
the book, namely that the new park could be 
worth up to 200 plus service and maintenance 


jobs for the borough if it goes ahead. 

Of course it might.and we could just as 

easily get none of them. There are no guaran¬ 
tees, so I view the jobs ploy as a red herring. 

The fact is that “someone” will get those 
jobs and the number could be a lot less than 
200, but no one knows at this stage. 

Overall councillors were right to seek reas¬ 
surances but they should not lose sight of the 
fact that such power sources are critically im¬ 
portant to this area and this country because 
the clock is ticking on the available supply of 
fossil fuels. The time to prepare for that is 
now not when they run out. 


■ A STROLL round a recent local event 
saw me get chatting with a thatcher who 
revealed how numbers in his profession 
have declined. 

Now if you think about how many 
“chocolate box” thatched cottages Dorset 
has then you’d think there would be a 
steady stream of work, but there aren’t the 
thatchers available to cope with it. 

And not everyone gets their thatch re¬ 
newed with more thatch. Some opt to con¬ 
vert to slate while there are even instances 
of people switching to plastic straw! 

I lived in a thatched cottage in my youth 
and know what maintenance can involve 
and I suggested that paying £50,000- 
£60,000 to have a thatched roof renewed 
might be putting people off. 

But I was told that renewal cost nothing 
like that and most cottages could be 
rethatched for £15,000-£20,000 and, with 
a shelf life of 20 years, that’s barely 
£1,000 per year for the picturesque home 
of people’s dreams. 

Just seeing him work with that lovely 
material, watching it staked into position 
and his small demonstration area take 
shape was a real pleasure. 

Let’s hope the art of thatching can sur¬ 
vive for many centuries to come because 
it holds the key to the survival of an iconic 
part of the English countryside look. 


Frustrated chalet users declare council a 'shambles 7 


A CORE community 
group of about 50 resi¬ 
dents now claims to have 
official confirmation that 
Weymouth and Portland 
council is “a shambles”. 

Their designation may 
be a little harsh, but you 
can understand their feel¬ 
ings after the sort of pub¬ 
lic debate and handling of 
the Greenhill chalets 
issue that was some way 


from being cutting edge 
council decision making. 

What incensed almost 
all the chalet users attend¬ 
ing the council’s manage¬ 
ment committee debate 
was that their group had 
been asked to meet a 
deadline for submitting 
its business case for tak¬ 
ing over looking after the 
chalets and associated fa¬ 
cilities. 


They clearly believed 
they were attending a 
meeting at which council¬ 
lors would decide 
whether to back their 
business case but - what 
a surprise - discussion 
wasn’t quite that simple. 

Instead there was much 
talk of being fair to all, of 
presenting an approach 
which was legally defen¬ 
sible and of making sure 


that all options were con¬ 
sidered. 

Stunned chalet users 
found themselves leaving 
a meeting not with the 
support they hoped for 
but with the prospect of 
an even lengthier period 
of uncertainty while other 
community groups and 
private businesses were 
allowed an opportunity to 
present their interest and 


plans for the chalets. 

I believe that English 
Heritage, which controls 
the historic two-tier 
chalets, is just the right 
body to have in the back¬ 
ground for this.be¬ 

cause if foggy debate on 
this issue goes on much 
longer without decisive 
action it will qualify for 
being an antique in its 
own right!

SEARCHING for a care home for some one dear to you is difficult 
and distressing. You are not just looking for high quality care, but 
also trying to find somewhere that your loved one will find at the 
very least acceptable. My husband had spent a lifetime in leadership 
roles and was also proud of his ability to challenge authority and 
professionals and this combined with his dementia was a lethal 
combination. Pinhay House was a successful find. He settled with 
amazing ease thanks to the understanding of his dementia and the 
recognition of his individuality was well catered for. The care was 
excellent. He spent a very happy year there and returned from one 
hospital stay full of smiles when he saw the staff and realised he was 
back home. I would recommend Pinhay House to others without 
reservation. 

IT WAS with great trepidation that we took my father out of his 
home and we took great care in finding the right environment for 
him to live happily. Pinhay House fits the bill with ease. The staff are 
caring and very professional and are more than able to cope with 
all the demanding and ever changing needs of the residents. We 
have experienced staff going way beyond the call of duty to help 
my father in times of difficulty. 

Pinhay is a home we would wholeheartedly recommend to others 
who are in the same situation as us, with a parent suffering from 
dementia and all the challenges that come with it. 

When my father lived on his own we were constantly worried 


about his wellbeing and since he moved to Pinhay we can rest and 
know that he is being cared for appropriately at all hours of the day 
and night. 

He is kept occupied by the staff and they go out of their way to 
find the interests he still has and nurture them constantly. 

MY MOTHER, a dementia sufferer in her late nineties, lived at Pinhay 
for her last two and a half years. When she first moved in for a trial 
stay she said 'I like it here, I have a nice room, the food's very good.' 
After another month her comment was This is a nice hotel!' 

As her full-time carer I found a great weight had been lifted from 
my mind. 

I COULDN'T let my Mother's passing go without letting you know 
how grateful we are to you, especially your staff. It cannot be easily 
described how we feel about the care and consideration they gave 
to my mother over her near three years she was a resident at Pinhay. 
Their dedication, patience and professionalism is always on show 
and very noticeable in everything they do. 

Thank you once again for your loving care....and just in case, save 
a good room for me please! 


I HAVE so many happy memories and experiences whilst my 
mother, Lesley, was with you. 

As you know, she was sad and depressed when she first arrived, 
having recently lost her beloved husband of 72 years but with the 
wonderful care, personal attention and gentle encouragement 
from your staff, she began to settle down and join in with the 
various activities (dominoes, decorating cakes, skittles - yes! she 
managed to get them all down in one throw, much to her delight!) 
- things she hadn't attempted for many years. And she loved the 
large, cuddly cat on her lap! 

Your staff always managed to raise a lovely smile from my 
mother and the photos they took are a delightful record of the 
many happy times she enjoyed. 

Pinhay is a gracious house set in stunning grounds overlooking 
the sea. One of its great strengths is that visitors are always made 
so welcome and it was a joy to spend time with my mother, 
getting to know the various members of staff and some of the 
other residents. Each resident is treated as a valued individual with 
kindness and respect and you get the impression they are part of 
a large, cherished, family. 

Pinhay is a very special place and it was a real comfort knowing 
my mother was in such safe hands.

I. DCCI Business Partners 


'Liking' Dorset tourism 
can now win you prizes 


AN expanding business organisation is 
raising the status of its strongest supporters 
to reflect their increasing importance. 

Dorset Chamber of Commerce and In¬ 
dustry (DCCI) is transforming its Patrons 
membership scheme as it steps up links 
with businesses to drive the economy. 

Under the change, Patrons will now be¬ 
come known as “DCCI Business Partners” 
- with the strapline “DCCI Business Part¬ 
ners Driving Economic Growth in Dorset”. 

They will take gold or platinum status 
and there will be just one Business Partner 
per sector. 

Premier Partners - currently only AFC 
Bournemouth - will remain at the top of the 
membership pyramid. 

The move comes as DCCI, which repre¬ 
sents 700 members employing 37,000 peo¬ 
ple, continues to grow and modernise. 


Chief executive Ian Girling said: “Our 
Patrons are among our strongest and most 
valued supporters. 

“They are also highly influential as busi¬ 
ness leaders, employers and drivers of the 
economy in Dorset. 

“Launching the new scheme recognises 
their increasing importance to the chamber 
as we expand our high quality services and 
seek to develop more links county wide. 

“We feel ‘Business Partner’ is a stronger 
reflection of the value we place on those 
supporters and reflects a more engaged and 
pro-active relationship. 

“The change also reflects the dynamic 
and innovative approach we are committed 
to at the chamber as we look forward to the 
future with confidence.” 

DCCI, the voice of business in Dorset, 
has 18 Patrons, who became known as 


Business Partners on July 1. 

The Business Partners are AFC 
Bournemouth, Barclays, Bournemouth 
Airport, Bournemouth University, Daily 
Echo/Dorset Echo, Deep South Media, 
Field International, Heart 102.3 FM, JP 
Morgan, Lester Aldridge, Meggitt, 
Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital, 
Paragon, Poole Harbour Commissioners, 
Savills, Saxe Coburg, Team Jobs and the 
Westover Group. 

Business Partners will have a high profile 
as Dorset business leaders but also have in¬ 
fluence at the chamber in lobbying the 
Government and British Chambers of 
Commerce over economic policy. 

They will have access to chamber events, 
services, training, business support and of¬ 
fers as well as opportunities to network 
with businesses of the same calibre. 


THE Visit Dorset Tourism Partnership 
is using its popular Facebook page to 
promote Dorset with an giveaway of 18 
top prizes from around the area. 

To be in with the chance of winning, 
entrants simply have to “like” the Visit 
Dorset Facebook page, select one of 
three fantastic prizes on offer every 
week and then “share” what’s on offer 
with their friends and family. 

The campaign runs until August 4th 
and prizes include holidays and short 
breaks in Dorset, days out at top local 
attractions such as Athelhampton House 
and Sandworld with special added ex¬ 
tras such as lunch or private guided 
tours and even a private charter along 
the Jurassic Coast. 

The prizes have been offered by 
Dorset businesses that work with the 
Visit Dorset Tourism Partnership and 
the campaign aims to increase the num¬ 
ber of Visit Dorset Facebook page fans 
and to raise awareness of Dorset as a 
visitor destination.

The event will be hosted by Commu¬

spokesman Councillor Rachel Rogers 
said: “I'm delighted that so many of our 
local tourism businesses are supporting 
this Visit Dorset promotion by offering 
unique prizes to encourage people to 
take part. 

“Using social media in this way gives 
us a valuable opportunity to engage 
with future visitors and spread the mes¬ 
sage about all the good things that 
Dorset has to offer." 

West Dorset District Council leader 
Councillor Robert Gould, said: “Mak¬ 
ing the most of social media channels 
such as Facebook is an important part 
of the Visit Dorset team’s marketing 
work. 

“This exciting new campaign highlights 
the variety of places to stay and things 
to see and do in Dorset as well as giving 
the opportunity for people to visit the 
area for themselves for free.”

Campaign to tackle illegal tobacco trade 


A CAMPAIGN highlight¬ 
ing the trade in illegal 
tobacco is coming back 
to Dorset. 

Running for seven 
weeks, the campaign 
aims to increase aware¬ 
ness about illegal to¬ 
bacco among the 
general public, encour¬ 
aging fewer people to 
buy it and more people 
to report it. 

It drives home the dev¬ 
astating consequences 
of buying illegal to¬ 
bacco. Sold at pocket 
money prices, illegal to¬ 
bacco makes it easier for 
children to smoke. This 


is because illegal to¬ 
bacco is far cheaper 
than legal duty paid 
products. 

Illegal tobacco also 
makes local communi¬ 
ties attractive to crimi¬ 
nals. Linked to serious 
organised crime such as 
drug trafficking, illegal 
tobacco contributes to 
an underground econ¬ 
omy worth hundreds of 
millions of pounds. 

Dorset Tobacco Con¬ 
trol Alliance trading 
standards lead Jane Bur¬ 
rows said: "Smoking 
rates in Weymouth, 
Bournemouth and 


Poole continue to be 
high in comparison to 
the rest of Dorset or the 
South West. 

"We believe there is a 
link between high 
smoking rates and the 
availability of illegal to¬ 
bacco as it is often sold 
at a third of the price of 
legal duty paid tobacco. 
It can also be a big fac¬ 
tor in recruiting young 
smokers as sellers of ille¬ 
gal tobacco are unlikely 
to care who they sell it 
to. 

"We urge any residents 
who have information 
about illegal tobacco to 


contact Crimestoppers 
in confidence, 0800 
555111." 

The south west cam¬ 
paign is part of the 
widerTackling Illegal To¬ 
bacco Programme 
which draws together all 
local authorities in the 
South West with HMRC, 
trading standards, po¬ 
lice forces, Scambusters, 
Crimestoppers, the NHS 
and other key partners 
to tackle this issue.

tobacco.co.uk. 


Funding to improve victim services 


AN extra £300,000 has been given 
to Dorset in Government funding, 
to further improve victim of crime 
services in the county. 

Successful projects put forward 
for funding include pilot services 
for mental health victims, support 
for child victims of serious sexual of¬ 
fences and extra services for victims 
of Domestic Abuse. 

Projects will also be set up for les¬ 
bian, gay, bisexual and transgender 
(LGBT) victims and male domestic 
abuse victims. 

Dorset Police and Crime Commis¬ 
sioner Martyn Underhill (PCC) said: 
"I am delighted. This is fantastic 


news for Dorset. These grants 
strengthen and widen our work 
with victims. This will see a real im¬ 
provement in victim care and help 
us to fill in the gaps where provision 
is lacking." 

Dorset Police Chief Constable 
Debbie Simpson said: "I am ex¬ 
tremely pleased Dorset has been 
successful in its bid. Supporting vic¬ 
tims is at the heart of what we do 
and the projects funded by this 
grant will make even more of a dif¬ 
ference." 

Some examples of the projects 
the PCC will now commission in 
Dorset within the next financial 


year 2014/15 are: 

• £100,000 for two mental health 
outreach workers and a mental 
health co-ordinator 

• £85,000 for a programme to 
support child victims of serious sex¬ 
ual offences 

• £30,000 for Freedom Courses to 
support victims of domestic abuse 

• £30,000 for special counselling 
for child witnesses of domestic 
abuse 

• £66,000 for specialist LGBT hate 
crime case workers in Cornwall, 
Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire (the 
Dorset contribution will be £19,000 
in financial year 2014/15). 



■ MORE than a dozen stalls were on show when Weldmar HospicecareTrust held its annual summer sale at

Taking to swimming like a baby to water! 



■ BABIES enjoying their life-saving techniques at a Water Babies session at Dove House 
near Dorchester 


A NEW venture to teach tod¬ 
dlers techniques to stop them 
drowning has started at a pri¬ 
vate pool near Dorchester. 

Similar sessions are also held 
on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and 
Thursdays at the Wyvern 
School in Weymouth, from 
4pm to 5.30pm. 

The Friday morning sessions 
at Dove House, Hampton on 
Fridays between 10am and 
12.30pm is already proving 
popular. 

Dorset Water Babies teach 
children to react instinctively if 
they find themselves in water, 
to swim to the side and hold on 
until help arrives. The sessions 
also teach youngsters to feel 
confident and to have fun in 
water. 

Drowning is the third highest 
cause of accidental death for 
children in the UK. 

Dorset owner of Water Babies 
Jo Tolley said a survey of par¬ 
ents found that more than half 
would not feel confident that 
their child could save them¬ 
selves if they got into trouble in 
the water, and 44 per cent ad¬ 
mitted that they themselves 
wouldn’t feel confident in their 
own swimming skills to rescue 
their child. 

Sixteen per cent of parents 
confessed they could not swim 
at all. 


Paul Thompson, Water Ba¬ 
bies co-founder, said: “It’s vital 
to encourage children to respect 
water from as early an age as 
possible. 

“Our research showed that the 
average age children start 
swimming lessons is four years 
old and 40 per cent of children 
haven’t had a lesson by the age 
of 12. But swimming lessons 
can actually can take place 


from birth, in fact, our youngest 
pupil was only two days old. 

“It’s tragic that drowning is 
still the third highest cause of 
accidental death for UK chil¬ 
dren. In most cases it’s the 
shock of sudden submersion 
that causes children to panic. 

“We believe that by introduc¬ 
ing children to the water as 
early as possible, they are less 
likely to experience fear if they 


do fall in. 

“With progressive training, 
babies can be taught lifesaving 
skills such as turning on their 
backs or, following sudden sub¬ 
mersion, swimming to the near¬ 
est solid object. 

“Over the last few years a 
dozen of our pupils have saved 
themselves from drowning, 
some of whom were just two 
years old.”

BE WATERWISE THIS SUMMER 


WE MAY have had the warmest 
spring on record, but last win¬ 
ter was also the wettest, so we are a long way 
from a drought and hosepipe ban. 

However, with experts predicting the dry 
weather is here to stay, gardeners will be 
working out ways to save water. 

The Royal Horticultural Society offers the 
following tips to gardeners who want to put the 
water where it's most needed: 

• Established trees and shrubs do not generally 
need watering as they have such wide-ranging 
roots that they are drought-proof. However, 
their growth may be improved by watering 
when they are under drought stress 

• Trees and shrubs planted less than five years 
ago have increased water requirements and 
may suffer drought stress without watering 

• Newly sown or newly planted areas are very 
vulnerable to water stress, so watering these 
should be a high priority 

• Herbaceous perennials often need watering 
to boost their performance in hot, dry spells. 
Plant choice is crucial if you want to achieve a 
drought-proof border. Drought resistant plants 
include cordyline, hebe, lavender, Verbena 
bonariensis, eryngium, euphorbia, diascia, 
cosmos, gazania, nemesia and, of course, 
pelargoniums. Many drought-tolerant plants 
have silver or grey-green leaves, their light leaf 
colour reflecting the harsh rays of the sun. 

• The yields and quality of vegetables and fruit 
are greatly improved by watering at times when 
drought stress would affect the part of the plant 
that is gathered. Leafy crops such as lettuce and 
spinach should never be short of water. Onions 
require little or no watering. Most other crops 
need watering at sowing and transplanting 
time, and then again as the fruits, roots or 
tubers are developing. It is also a good idea to 
give a single, thorough watering about two 
weeks before harvest. 

• Lawns require great quantities of water for 
thorough irrigation, but instead of watering in 
dry periods, mow less closely and less 
frequently. Brown patches usually recover when 
the autumn rains return. 

• Mulching with a layer of organic matter or 
gravel at least 5cm (2in) thick reduces moisture

loss from the upper layers of 
the soil. 

Less than 3% of the annual water 
consumption of an average household is 
estimated to be from garden use, but at peak 
times as much as 70% of water supplied may be 
used in gardens. 

Even in dry districts, 24,000 litres (5,280 
gallons or 150 water butts) could be collected 
from the roof each year, says the RHS. 

Sean Laverick of the Homebase Garden 
Academy advises waterwise gardeners to store 
their water in water butts and invest in a water 
butt pump which enables you to use your hose 
with a water butt. 

"Most garden watering should be aimed 
specifically at the stem bases beneath the 
foliage canopy, leaving the surrounding soil 
dry," he says. "This helps to limit weed problems 
and ensures all the water goes where it is 
needed." 

If you are short of time, invest in seep hoses, 
which have holes in them to deliver water 
accurately to established plants and plants in 
rows. They can be hidden beneath soil or 
mulch, which also avoids evaporation losses 
and work best on heavy soil where the water 
spreads further sideways as it sinks than on 
lighter soils. 

Automated irrigation systems are another 
option to save time and labour. They feature 
drip or trickle irrigation systems and some are 
remotely operated through sensors which can 
monitor when your soil needs watering. 

Mix water storing gel in with the compost in 
your container plants, to save and store a lot of 
the water you normally use, the gel slowly 
releasing water to the roots. 

Keep your soil as wet as possible - mulch on 
the ground surface prevents evaporation from 
the soil, providing increased moisture 
retention. Some lawnmowers now have 
mulching plugs that return fine grass cuttings 
back on to the lawn's surface. 

Finally, says Sean, don't panic: "Long-term 
weather predictions should still see summer 
rain which will allow plants to thrive over the 
summer, so just make sure you're making the 
most of the rain that comes your way."

Sherborne Turf 


ESTABLISHED for over 40 years, Sherborne Turf is situated 
in the picturesque village of Trent in Dorset, where we have 
around 150 acres of quality farmland dedicated to the 
production of ourTrentTurf. Grown without netting, we use 
a blend of grasses developed over the years that will knit 
together to form a firm base, and leave our turf in the 
ground for 18 months before harvesting. It is then freshly 
cut to order and delivered using our own vehicles. While the 
trade standard for delivery is 'kerb-side', we realise that this 
is not always practical for our customers, and so our 
experienced drivers always endeavour to place the items as 
conveniently as possible for you, a service which is often 
not provided by other companies. 

Although our core business is turf production, we also 
supply a full range of locally sourced topsoil, compost, bark 


and mulch. Other essential garden items include fertiliser, 
irrigation equipment, landscape accessories, and a full 
range of seed mixes to grow wildflowers and grasses for 
companion sowing. 

Our delivery vehicles include an artic with removable 
forklift, a 6-wheel rigid crane lorry, and a pick up truck 
with trailer. We also have access to a wide range of vehicles 
for bulk loads of topsoil, compost and bark. 

All of the staff here at Sherborne Turf have experience 
of the products we sell, and are happy to discuss any 
aspect of your garden project. Our website www.sherborne 
turf.co.uk contains detailed information, practical advice, 
and even has an interactive calculator. We are also on

FOLLOWING multiple sell-out tours, From The 
Jam return in all their glory for The Setting 
Sons Tour, taking place at specially selected UK 
venues, including the Electric Palace, Bridport. 

Celebrating the 35th anniversary of the re¬ 
lease of Setting Sons, The Jam's fourth album, 
From The Jam will be performing this seminal 
release in its entirety. 

Setting Sons is widely regarded as the band's 
best album alongside All Mod Cons, and was 
declared by Record Mirror as "the last great 
album of the seventies". 

Featuring former The Jam bassist Bruce Fox- 
ton and legendary guitarist Russell Hastings, 
From The Jam will be playing tracks such as 
top 10 hit Eton Rifles and Little Boy Soldiers, as 
well as fan-favourites Wasteland and the Fox- 
ton-written track Smithers-Jones, amongst 


many other much-loved classics. 

Bruce Foxton has recently said, "The whole 
idea of playing an album in full has really taken 
off for us and has brought back so many great 
memories - they were great times for the band 
then and I love the idea of bringing that ex¬ 
citement and thrill back onstage. We will also 
of course play the hits and more to make what 
I think will be a great night." 

As has come to be expected, this show will 
sell out, so get your tickets now! 

From The Jam bring their Setting SonsTour 
to the Electric Palace on Friday, September 
19th at 8pm.Tickets are £20 in advance (plus 
booking fee) and are available from 
seeticket.com. The show is suitable for ages 
14+. For more details visit www.electric-

A summer cocktail of sultry French 
chansons and Argentine tangos 

BACK by hugely popular demand, Anglo-Belgian cabaret chanteuse Bethany Jame¬ 
son and her award-winning quartet Cabaret Verite return to Bridport's Lyric Theatre. 

The Gallic-infused quartet has created a smoking hot, special summer cocktail of 
their much loved classic and new French chansons (Piaf, Brel, Greco, Hot Club de 
France, Pink Martini), sultry Argentine tangos and their latest comedy songs. 

On Saturday, July 19th, three days after Bastille Day, and two years since their last 
performance at The Lyric with 'On the Banks of the Seine', audiences can expect more 
beautiful music, intimate vintage cabaret with a delicious comic twist! 

Cabaret Verite went down a storm both times they've performed at the Lyric - they 
are guaranteed to create a fabulous evening's entertainment. Bethany says: "My 
cabaret style concerts will [also] delight serious musos - we have stunning arrange¬ 
ments and musicians who are all stars in their own right - and also lovers of theatrical 
cabaret - old style with a modern twinkle." 

Tickets are £12 and are available from Bridport Arts Centre's box office: 01308 
424204 and online at www.bridport-arts.com, or on the door if not sold out in ad¬ 
vance! Doors open at 7:30pm and the show begins at 8pm. 


Ever wanted to share 
a pint with God? 


BENEATH the stone and mortar of 
modern London - deep down in the 
dirt - a long-forgotten and ancient 
god reawakens after thousands of 
years of sleep: John Barleycorn, a wild¬ 
eyed, long-haired god of drink and 
dance and madness. 

A shadow of his former-self, John 
awakes to find a city he barely recog¬ 
nises, a world he cannot understand 
and millions of people who don't even 
know who he is. 

But ancient gods are not so easily 
forgot - and if people aren't going to 


remember him, he might just have to 
jolt their memories. Bring a bottle - it's 
going to be one hell of a party 

An epic poem and story that collides 
the myths of ancient Britain with the 
pulsing heartbeat of modern London. 

Meet John Barleycorn, drinker, party 
animal and ancient god, in an exciting 
one man performance Bridport Arts 
Centre Friday, July 11th at 
7.30pm. Tickets are £10, £9 members, 
£8 concessions from 01308 424204 or 
online at www.bridport-arts.com 



Fast and Furious Fiddle Fun! 

Gordie MacKeeman & His Rhythm Boys to play Arts Centre 


HAILING from Canada, Gordie MacK¬ 
eeman & His Rhythm Boys serve up 
old-time roots music with an energy 
level that practically yanks you out of 
your seat by the collar. 

Most people would struggle to even 
get a single note out of a fiddle. Very 
few can play at a blistering, blink-and- 
you've-missed-four-bars pace. And 
only Gordie MacKeeman can play at 
this velocity with the fiddle behind his 
back or when standing on top of his 
band-mate's double bass. 

Collectively they specialise in old- 
timey, hillbilly and Western Swing, but 
usually play with a ferocity that, in a 
live setting, is nigh on impossible for 
your body to ignore. Such is the verve 
and daring of Gordie's crew that the 
audience's limbs are involuntary thrust 
into action, forcing all those within 


earshot to stomp along to the vintage 
high-octane sound. 

The elastic-legged bandleader is a 
real showman and his live sets are to 
remember. 

"These lods from PEI have taken their 
great musical skill and love for the reper¬ 
toire and added engaging, sometimes 
jaw-dropping, stagecraft and show¬ 
manship. Man for man there may not be 
a better roots band playing in Canada 
today. Booking them was a no-brainer." 
- Matthew Large, Montreal's Folk Fes¬ 
tival on the Canal. 

Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm 
Boys play at Bridport Arts Centre on 
Tuesday, July 15th at 8pm. Tickets are 
£12, £11 members, and £10 conces¬ 
sions, available from Bridport Arts 
Centre's Box Office (01308) 424204 
or online at www.bridport-arts.com 


Award-winning poet 
Jack Dean brings his 
modern fable to the 
Marine Theatre 



IN A town in the middle of nowhere, in the attic of 
his parents' house, a man convinced he was born 
with wings flees from the chaos outside and picks 
through his confused past. 

Threnody forthe Sky Children is a surreal modern fable 
that draws inspiration from Ovid's epic poem Meta¬ 
morphoses through poetry, music and mythology. 

Winner of the 2012 Ideastap Innovators Award and 
The Cheltenham Festival of Literature Slam in 2011, 
Jack Dean is a writer, poet and performer based in 
the South West. Combining music and images to his 
poetry to create a unique and cutting-edge, Dean 
has carried his love of weird and wonderful arrange¬ 
ments of words to many places from the Bowery Po¬ 
etry Club in New York, Latitude Festival and the 
Radio 4 National Poetry Slam. Jack likes to take the 
hip hop medium he grew up with, go out with it, get 
it drunk and push it down the high street in a shop¬ 
ping trolley full of fireworks at 4am. He hopes you'll 
join him on this quixotic adventure. 

Jack Dean's Threnody for the Sky Children comes to 
the Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis, on Wednesday, July 
16th, at 7.30pm. 

Tickets are £8.50 or £6.50 (concessions), to book

The 'perfect murder 7 
comes to Dorchester Arts 


THE much-celebrated amateur dramatics group 
Somerleigh Players return with a new tour per¬ 
forming the entertaining Murder Play by Brian J. 
Burton. This exciting play is set a dinner party 
where the lead character Jane professes to have 
committed the'perfect crime'... but it transpires 
that the murder is really a practical joke, perhaps! 

The Somerleigh Players usually perform three 
plays per year and are in their second year of 
reaching out to a number of villages on tour. Last 
years successful tour to Dorset villages with the 
play Bang You're Dead which included light re¬ 
freshments afterwards proved popular and the 
group decided to make this "Supper Theatre" 

a permanent fixture in their annual calendar. 

Director Melanie Hooley says,"We aim to bring 
the best of amateur theatre to Dorchester and 
our surrounding villages while raising funds for

WWI Exploits of Dorset Woman 
Recognised at Dorset County Museum 


THE current exhibition at Dorset County Museum - 
A Dorset Woman at War - recognises a remarkable 
Dorset woman, Mabel Stobart, who played an im¬ 
portant role in Serbia during the First World War. On 
Wednesday, July 16th at 7.30pm, Dr Peter Down will 
talk about Stobart and what she achieved under im¬ 
possible circumstances. 

In 1915 the world's worst epidemic of typhus broke 
out in Serbia, a country already exhausted by war. 
Around 150,000 people died, including nearly half 
the country's doctors and their medical services be¬ 
came overwhelmed. By April 1915 British medical 
teams, including Stobart's unit, had gone to their aid. 

Peter Down said,"Mabel Stobart took ambulances, 
X-ray machines and medical supplies and set up a 
hospital south of Belgrade providing the civilian 
population with much-needed free treatment." 

When German and Austrian troops invaded the 
country later that year, Stobart and her women-only 
team of doctors and nurses were forced to retreat 
south with the bulk of the Serbian army and then go 
west over the mountains of Montenegro, to final 
safety on the Adriatic coast. 

On the 800-mile journey over 100,000 soldiers and 
civilian refugees died of hunger, disease and the 
cold, but Stobart and her remaining nurses contin¬ 
ued to care for them as best they could, with se¬ 
verely diminished resources and equipment. As a 
result of her efforts, Mabel Stobart is still regarded 
as a heroine in Serbia today. 

Entry to the lecture is free but donations are en¬ 


couraged. Doors are open at 7pm; the lecture will 
commence at 7.30pm. For further information see 
www.dorsetcountymuseum.org. A Dorset Woman at 
War continues until November 15th 2014 - further 
talks and events based on the exhibition will follow. 



Edinburgh preview show in Bridport 
for two South West comedians 



A SPECIAL comedy cafe night at Bridport Arts Centre next week will 
showcase an Edinburgh preview from the club's regular host. 

The unique comedy cafe show, moving to the main theatre for one 
night only, will feature resident compere, Tom Glover, giving a test run 
of his first Edinburgh show. 

His Edinburgh set will feature the best bits of Tom's back catalogue 
of material, first aired at the comedy cafe, as well as some new bits 
written specially for the show. 

Joining Tom will be fellow westcountry act Cerys Nelmes, who 
is sharing the hour long slot with Tom at the Edinburgh festival 
this August. 

Cerys is also a well respected MC in the south west, known for her 
engaging audience interaction and her no holds barred comedy. 

Cerys was a 'Funny Women' finalist in 2012 and is now a co-host on 
Fubar Radio with Bristolian funnyman Justin 

D Lee Collins. 

Supporting Tom and Cerys for this one- 
off show will be a third westcountry act, 

Jon Wagstaffe, another of the south 
west's finest new comic talents perform¬ 
ing in Bridport for the first time. — 

This will be the first time Tom has performed a full set in Bridport. 

"In the past I've always been hosting the show, which involves a lot more 
audience interaction" said Tom. 

"Lot's of the club's regulars have asked me to do something like 
this in the past so it will be a great chance for Cerys and I to road- 
test our sets before taking it to Scotland. 

, "Most of what people will see has been performed at some 
point at the comedy cafe but spread over the course of two years. 
This is the best of what I've written in my time on the circuit." 

Tom and Cerys met for the first time in January but have gigged 
together regularly since. 

"Cerys is one of the best acts the westcountry has to offer so I 
really have to raise my game when on the show with her. Jon is 
also fantastic so even if people have seen some of my bits before 
they won't go home disappointed." 

The preview will be held at the Bridport Arts Centre next 
Wednesday, July 16th. 

Tickets are available from the box office on 01308 424204, priced 
£7 adults/£5 concessions. Profits from the show will help fund their 
two-week run in Edinburgh.

ent with a diverse range of styles and genres

till it all kicks off in Tiverton and the annual Bal¬ 
loon & Music Festival begins. With over 7 
months hard work done by all our volunteers & 
friends of the festival, this year is set to be one 
to remember. Both record numbers of hot air 
balloons are attending and record numbers of 
musicians. Personally I can’t wait for it! Along 


with hopefully up to 15,000-20,000 other festi¬ 
val goers." 

Mr Street added, "As ever the main aim this 
year it to provide a great weekend out for fam¬ 
ilies and to raise money for local charities, we 
look forward to seeing everyone there next Fri¬

Volvo Cars' All-New XC90 Will be the 
World's Most Powerful and Cleanest SUV

VOLVO Cars'all-new XC90 will offer an unrivalled 
combination of power and clean operation when 
it is launched later this year. The all-wheel drive 
seven seater offers drivers up to 400 horsepower 
but with carbon dioxide (C02) emissions of around 
60 g/km (NEDC driving cycle). There has never 
been an SUV offering this level of power this 
cleanly. 

"There are no compromises when you drive an 
all-new XC90,"said Peter Mertens, Senior Vice Pres¬ 
ident Research and Development of Volvo Car 
Group."In the past you could either have power or 
low C02 emissions. But with the all-new XC90 you 
can have both." 

The new XC90 offers a range of Drive-E engine 
options, all of which provide an outstanding com¬ 
bination of performance and fuel-efficiency. The 
main distinguishing feature of the Drive-E engine 
range is that they are all four-cylinder engines. 

"With our new Drive-E powertrains, we have cre¬ 
ated a family of intelligent petrol and diesel en¬ 
gines with power curves that give exciting 
driveability at the same time as delivering world¬ 
beating fuel economy," added Dr. Mertens. "With 
seven people in the new XC90, carbon dioxide 
emissions per person and kilometre are outstand¬ 
ingly low." 

The C02 performance of the all-new XC90 will re¬ 
inforce Volvo Cars' leadership when it comes to 
bringing more environmentally-sound technolo¬ 
gies to market. According to figures monitored by 
European car industry association ACEA, Volvo Car 
Group delivered an industry-leading reduction of 
average fleet emissions by 8.4 per cent from 2012 
to 2013. 

Twin Engine technology 

Volvo has made it possible for a four-cylinder en¬ 


gine to provide all the driving pleasure associated 
with a much larger engine and do so far more effi¬ 
ciently and cleanly. Drive-E engines will over time 
be introduced across Volvo's entire range. 

For the all-new XC90, the top of the range 'Twin 
Engine' will carry the badge 'T8' and be a plug-in 
electric car, hybrid car and high-performance car 
rolled into one. 

Normal driving is conducted in the default hybrid 
mode. This utilises a two-litre, four-cylinder super¬ 
charged and turbocharged Drive-E petrol engine 
that powers the front wheels and an 80 hp (60 kW) 
electric motor that drives the rear wheels. 

It uses the supercharger to fill in the bottom end 
of the power range to give the engine a big, natu¬ 
rally-aspirated feel, while the turbocharger kicks in 
when the airflow builds up. The electric motor on 
the rear wheels provides immediate torque. 

But at the push of a button the driver can switch 
to quiet and emission-free city driving on pure 
electric power where the range will be around 25 
miles, and then, when needed, immediately revert 


back to the combined capacity of the petrol engine 
and electric motor, with its combined output of 
around 400 hp and 640 Nm of torque. 

Full range of other engine options 

The Volvo XC90 range also includes the D5 twin 
turbo diesel engine with 225 hp, 470 Nm and best 
in class fuel consumption of around 47mpg (com¬ 
bined), plus the D4 turbo diesel engine with 190 
hp, 400 Nm and a fuel consumption of around 
56mpg (combined cycle). 

Not only is there no compromise in terms of per¬ 
formance or efficiency, but Volvo Cars'new Scalable 
Product Architecture (SPA) chassis technology also 
allows for far more flexibility inside the car. Other 
carmakers have struggled to combine the bulk of 
a battery pack with a luxurious and spacious inte¬ 
rior, something that Volvo has managed to over¬ 
come. 

"Since our new SPA technology is designed from 
the start to accommodate electrification technolo¬ 
gies, theTwin Engine installation does not compro¬ 
mise luggage or passenger space,"said Dr. Mertens.

Volkswagen Reveals All-New Passat Saloon and Estate Models 



VOLKSWAGEN has unveiled the all-new Passat 
at a ceremony at the Volkswagen Design Cen¬ 
tre in Potsdam, Germany. The latest car, which 
will receive its public premiere at the Paris 
Motor Show in October, is the eighth-genera¬ 
tion of the Passat, which over the past 41 years 
has racked up over 23 million sales worldwide. 

Everything in this car is new: its design, tech¬ 
nologies and engines. The Passat sets new 
standards with an unladen weight that has 
been reduced by up to 85 kg and fuel economy 
figures that have been improved by up to 20 
per cent. For the first time, there will also be a 
Passat with a plug-in hybrid drive system. In 
its design and in the advanced features it of¬ 
fers, the new Passat bridges the gap between 


the upper medium and premium class. 

At 4,767 mm long, the saloon is two millime¬ 
tres shorter than the previous model, while the 
wheelbase is 79 mm longer at 2,791 mm and 
therefore the body overhangs significantly 
shorter. At the same time, the Passat is 14 mm 
lower at 1,456 mm, and 12 mm wider at 1,832 
mm. 

Because of the optimised engine orientation, 
it was possible to lower significantly the bon¬ 
net and shift the windscreen towards the rear. 
This 'cab backward design' helps to create the 
impression of a premium-class car. Extremely 
precisely drawn edges and creases which de¬ 
velop individual light-reflecting surfaces help 
to continue this impression. At the front, the 


new Passat's radiator grille features four 
chrome bars which bend inward towards the 
headlights in a trapezoidal shape. The lower¬ 
most chrome bar of the grille is continued into 
the headlights. 

Immediately noticeable at the rear is that the 
cab has a strong inward sweep, and at the bot¬ 
tom it transitions into the wide, flared shoulder 
section. The rear lights have been made con¬ 
siderably wider and leaner. In this area, the Sa¬ 
loon looks like a young sibling of the Phaeton 
with its large bootlid surface, and a distinctive 
crease beneath the rear lights that extends 
across the rear. 

All models of Passat have LED rear lights, 
while the higher-specification versions feature 
a distinctive horizontal tail light signature that 
switches over to a vertically oriented brake 
light signature under braking. Headlights are 
halogen or LED. In conjunction with Dynamic 
Light Assist, one of the two LED headlight op¬ 
tions automatically adjusts the beam for max¬ 
imum illumination of the road without 
dazzling other traffic. 

Despite exterior dimensions that are actually 
marginally smaller than those of the previous 
Passat, interior space is improved, with more 
leg- and head-room, as well as increased lug¬ 
gage space. 

The interior has been developed to match 
the sophisticated exterior of the eighth-gener¬ 
ation Passat. New technologies to be offered 
on the new Passat include the optional Active 
Info Display, which replaces the instrument 
cluster with a fully configurable interactive 
12.3-inch TFT display; a heads-up display; the 
latest Modular Infotainment System, including 
the Car-Net remote app; a further-developed 


360-degree Area View function; and the latest 
generation of Park Assist. This newly devel¬ 
oped Park Assist includes the option for the car 
to park itself forwards into perpendicular 
spaces - useful, for example at supermarket car 
parks, where access to the boot is important. 
It also includes a world-first Trailer Assist sys¬ 
tem, which provides assistance when reversing 
a vehicle with a trailer attached - without the 
need for any modification or adaptation of the 
trailer. 

Safety technology includes Side Assist with 
Rear Traffic Alert; Traffic Jam Assist which 
makes stop-and-go driving more comfortable; 
Emergency Assist, which can potentially halt a 
vehicle when the driver is incapacitated; and 
the latest Front Assist system with City Emer¬ 
gency Braking, which optionally combines 


both radar and camera sensors to add pedes¬ 
trian detection. 

A highlight of the Passat's new range of en¬ 
gines is a high-performance, four-cylinder, 2.0- 
litre, bi-turbo diesel delivering 240 PS and an 
extraordinary 500 Nm from 1,750 rpm. This en¬ 
gine will be available only with a new seven- 
speed DSG gearbox and 4MOTION all-wheel 
drive. A plug-in hybrid model will also be of¬ 
fered, with potential to travel 31 miles on bat¬ 
tery power alone, and with a maximum range 
of around 600 miles. 

Further details and UK pricing are expected 
to be announced at the time of the Paris Motor 
Show in October. UK sales will start before the 
end of the year, with first deliveries expected 
in early 2015.

Vauxhall Slashes Young-Driver Insurance Costs 


VAUXHALL is helping drive down the cost of motoring 
for young drivers by offering those aged 18-20 one 
year's insurance cover for a one off payment of just 
£99, with the Vauxhall Corsa Excite or Limited Edition 
models. 

Teaming up with insurance provider, ingenie, Vaux¬ 
hall is helping its young customers get on the road 
more affordably with its popular Corsa models. As an 
added bonus, to reward good driving, each driver can 
earn the entire cost of the insurance back with good 
driving - up to £33 per quarter - meaning the total 
cost of insurance for twelve months could be paid 
back. 

Each car is fitted with 'black box'technology which 
monitors driving style, including speed, acceleration, 
braking and cornering. Every 10 days - or 40 miles - 
ingenie will provide the driver with a score based on 
how well they are driving, along with feedback mes¬ 
sages in a smartphone app on how to improve, and 
how much money they're on track to save. After every 
three months, an overall score is provided and money 
can be reclaimed. 

Black box technology encourages good driving, 
gives parents peace of mind and can also save the cus¬ 
tomer money in year two! 

Customers can also benefit from Vauxhall's Flexible 
PCP, which allows them to tailor their finance to suit 
their budgets. With deposits from zero upwards and 
zero per cent APR, customers can select finance terms 
between 24 and 36 months. Other routes to market 


are also available with this insurance offer, including 
Flexible Finance and cash purchases. 

As an example of the Flexible PCP offers available, 
Corsa Excite is available from just £189 per month with 
a £189 deposit, while Corsa Limited Edition can be 
driven away from £199 per month with a £199 deposit 
at 0% APR. 


"This is ground breaking news for young drivers, 
some of whom could still be paying upwards of £2,000 
for insurance when they're 18," said Mark Pinkney, 
Vauxhall's Marketing Programmes Manager. "We 
wanted to provide young drivers who buy their cars 
through Vauxhall retailers with affordable insurance 
to help them get on the road."

New Toyota Yaris Equipment Specifications and Prices Revealed 


THE NEW 2014 Toyota Yaris introduces a new UK grade 
structure that is designed to help broaden the appeal of 
the model to a more diverse customer base. The line-up 
offers more choice, more equipment options and a wealth 
of advanced features for on-board comfort, communica¬ 
tions, safety and style. 

The new line-up presents the established Active and 
Icon grades, joined by new Sport and Excel trims. Yaris Hy¬ 
brid can be specified in Icon and Excel versions. 

Each grade has its own character, differentiated by de¬ 
tails such as the interior trim and materials and treatment 
of various interior and exterior elements, including the 
lower grille, wheels, seats, centre console and instrument 
panel. 

High equipment levels feature throughout the range, 
with a leather-trimmed steering wheel, air conditioning 
and the latest Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system fitted as 
standard from Icon grade. Climate control air conditioning 
is standard for all Hybrid models and for Yaris Excel. 

Toyota Touch 2 is an updated version of Toyota's touch¬ 
screen multimedia system with a new, higher resolution 
seven-inch display. The package includes Bluetooth for 
hands-free phone calls, sending and receipt of text mes¬ 
sages and audio streaming; a rear-view camera; vehicle in¬ 
formation, including trip data, climate control profile; and 
management of settings for door locking and lighting. 

It comes with DAB digital radio as standard, with an FM 
link that automatically switches the system to FM recep¬ 
tion when there is no DAB signal. Toyota Touch 2 is also 
MirrorLink-ready, allowing users to connect compatible 
smartphones and operate them entirely using the touch¬ 
screen 

Toyota Touch 2 with Go is available as an option on Icon, 
Sport and Excel grades, adding navigation, connected 
services and access to a range of useful applications, in¬ 
cluding Toyota Real Time Traffic and services such as fuel 


prices, weather and parking information. 

Ten exterior colours are available, including new Island 
Blue metallic and, exclusively for Hybrid models, Avant- 
garde Bronze. 

Customers can upgrade their new Yaris with a range of 
options and options packs that add further style, func¬ 
tionality and sophistication. Elements include Toyota's 
Skyview panoramic roof, LED daytime running lights and 
rear lamps, rear privacy glass and the Toyota touch 2 with 
Go multimedia system with navigation. Sport models can 
further be specified with vibrant Piri Piri red interior trim, 
including door panels, front seat upholstery inserts and 
soft-touch instrument panel. 


A new range of option packs has been designed to bring 
together themed equipment and styling elements to 
boost Yaris's specification and street presence. The prac¬ 
tical Protection Pack (for Icon, Sport and Excel) adds mud- 
flaps, rear bumper protection, front and rear parking 
sensors and carpet mats; the Style Pack (Icon and Sport) 
provides aluminium scuff plates and bumper protection 
plate and a chrome finish for the door sills, boot and dif¬ 
fuser trims and tailpipe). Icon models can be further up¬ 
graded with the Design Pack, adding LED daytime 
running lights and rear light clusters, plus rear privacy 
glass. 

Exclusively for Excel models, the Appearance Pack intro¬ 


duces a rear spoiler, rear privacy glass and a Skyview 
(fixed) panoramic roof, and the Smart Pack offers Smart 
Entry, push-button start (standard on Hybrid Excel) and 
an auto-folding function for the door mirrors.

Football - Pre-season news 


Dickenson move hands Magpies financial boost 


DORCHESTER Town are in for a wel¬ 
come financial windfall, with the Mag¬ 
pies set to collect a sizable cheque 
following the sale of one of their previ¬ 
ous players. 

Ben Dickenson has signed for League 
One Gillingham Town after failing 
being released by Championship high 
flyers, Brighton and Hove Albion. 

The 21-year-old striker joined the 
Seagulls from the Dorset club in Janu¬ 
ary 2012 for a fee believed to be in the 
region of £45,000; an amount the Sus¬ 
sex club are expected to have de¬ 
manded from the Gills. 

The Magpies are now due a knock-on 
payment from the deal although all 
three clubs have refused to release de¬ 
tails of the payments involved. 

Despite impressing in the Develop¬ 


ment side, the former Christchurch star 
was unable to make a first team break¬ 
through during his two-and-a-half 
years at the Amex Stadium, and with 
new Albion boss, Sami Hyppia, looking 
to strengthen his squad with experi¬ 
enced names, Dickenson is deemed 
surplus to requirements. 

"It feels really good to have signed," 
said Dickenson. 

"It's going to be good for me to get 
out here (at Priestfield) and show the 
fans what I've got and get some games 
under my belt in League One. 

"I've got pace, I'm good in the air, will 
put in plenty of crosses and I hope I can 
please the fans." 

He added: "I'm glad Dorchester will 
benefit from my move because I really 
enjoyed my time there. 


"They were the club that gave me my 
break and I wish everyone down there 
all the best." 

Dickenson, who had loans spells at 
Chesterfield, AFC Wimbledon and 
Northampton during his time at 
Brighton, teams up at Priestfield with 
former England winger, Peter Taylor. 

And Magpies boss Phil Simkin reck¬ 
ons that could be the making of the ex- 
Ferndown schoolboy. 

under Taylor's wing 

The county town boss said: "It's a 
shame things haven't worked out for 
Ben at Brighton but I'm sure he will do 
really well at Gillingham. 

"He has a vicious left-foot, his pace is 
electric and his best is yet to come. 

"Playing for a manager like Peter Tay¬ 
lor will be great for him because, like 


Ben, he was a nippy and skilful left- 
footer too." 

Meanwhile Simkin is hopeful that 
some of the money heading Dorch¬ 
ester's way will end up in his playing 
budget. 

"It's great that we will be receiving a 
few quid from Ben's transfer, and it 
would be nice to think a bit of it will be 
allocated to the playing budget, but 
the running costs of the club are our 
number one priority and so we will just 
have to wait and see what happens. 

"I don't know how much is coming 
our way but any amount will be wel¬ 
come. 

"These sorts of deals are what keeps 
clubs at our level alive, and my job is to 
always be on the lookout for the next 
Ben Dickenson." 



■ ON THE MOVE: Ben 

Dickenson's move to 
Gillingham Town will 
prove a financial windfall 
for the Magpies. 


Peter revels at Langstone regatta 


WEYMOUTH Rowing Club enjoyed a very 
successful period recently, almost sweep¬ 
ing the board at Hayling Island, which fol¬ 
lowed a great performance in the Mixed 
and Veteran championships at Saltash the 
week before. 

Langstone Cutters Gig Regatta, 
Hayling Island, June 28th 

IT was with some trepidation that Wey¬ 
mouth Rowing Club headed to Hampshire 
for the most easterly of gig events, the 
Langstone Cutters Gig Regatta on Hayling 
Island. 

Missing several key rowers and with a risk 
of some very heavy rain, Weymouth could 
be forgiven for thinking it might not be 
their day; however, it turned into one of 
Weymouth most successful events ever. 

The weather held, with pre-event rain 
giving way to a gorgeous warm sunny day. 

The four turn 1.7 mile course suited Wey¬ 
mouth's powerful rowing technique, de¬ 
spite a keen breeze blowing from the west, 
and a strong incoming tide, making it chal¬ 
lenging rowing. 

Seven races were contested, with Wey¬ 
mouth winning six through the Ladies A, 
Mens A, Mens B, Ladies Vets, Mens Vets and 
the Mixed crew, with the Ladies B finishing 
a close second to the host club Langstone. 
huge victory 

The margin of the mixed crew's victory 
was immense; over 10 boat lengths and 80 
seconds ahead of Portland in Pulpit Rock. 

With Portland Gig Club coming second 
in three races, and third in another, it 
proved to be a hugely successful event for 
the area. 

A very special mention goes to Wey¬ 


mouth Peter Revell. He won two gold 
medals with the Men's B and men's Vets, 
and added three more gold gongs by cox¬ 
ing the Ladies Vets, Mens A and Mixed 
Crews to victory; a personal haul of five 
gold medals from seven races. 

Mixed and Vets County Champi¬ 
onships, Saltash, June 22nd 

ON a glorious sunny Sunday, Weymouth 
Rowing Club's annual exodus to the Mixed 
and Veteran championship was a resound¬ 
ing success with superlative performances 
from all crews. 

Held at Caradon Gig club under the 
shadow of the Tamer Bridge in Saltash, 
these championships are a firm favourite 
among the gig rowing community attract¬ 
ing stiff competition from all over the 
south west. 

Weymouth sent a Mens and Ladies Vet¬ 
erans team (over 40s) and a Ladies and 
Men's Super-Vets team (over 50s). The 
event consists of knock out group race, 
semi-final, and final. 

All teams made it through the group 
race, but the ladies teams failed to make 
the final. 

Both the Mens teams went one better, 
making their finals. 

Weymouth Mens Supervets fought hard 
over the 1.6 miles course second to current 
World Supervet champions Helford, whilst 
the Mens Vets were also runners up, to Il¬ 
fracombe, to record the club's best ever re¬ 
sult at the championships. 

The next Gig Regatta on the calendar 
was last Saturday (July 5th) at West Bay 
where Bridport Gig Club hosted teams 
from all over the South West.

School Sport 


Wey Valley celebrates sporting successes 


OVER 350 students and parents packed the Will Mack- 
aness Hall at The Wey Valley School in Weymouth to 
celebrate students'sporting achievements at the 18th 
Annual Sports'Awards. 

Delighted Year 11 students Mamie McCombe and 
Robert Deadman carried off the "Sports Personality 
of the Year" awards in recognition of their overall and 
sustained contributions. 

Stuart Heath, PE teacher, said: "Mamie and Robert 
are both worthy winners of these awards, which re¬ 
flect very high levels of sporting achievement and, 
perhaps more importantly, the crucial part they play 
at school as excellent role models for other students. 

"Mamie's special sporting interest is netball, while 
Robert is into cricket and rugby, and they're both 
great allrounder's; always willing to help, and a real 
inspiration to their younger schoolmates." 

A total of 60 awards were presented during the 
evening, some of them given out by the specialist 
coaches who visit regularly to teach Wey Valley stu¬ 
dents more unusual sports such as martial arts and 
volleyball. 

Other Year 11 award winners included Stacey Han¬ 
cock and Tom Edgeley for their dedication to extra¬ 
curricular sports, and Rebecca Raybould and Alex 
Jolliffe for their dedication to sporting excellence. 

Principal Phil Thomas said: "This event was the cul¬ 
mination of our young peoples' school sporting ca¬ 
reers, and it's been fantastic to witness how the 


positive personal values of sport have helped instil 
confidence and raise self-esteem among them." 

Stuart Heath added:"We encourage our students to 
take part in as many local and regional sporting 
events as possible, from traditional sports such as 
football, rugby, cricket, netball, tennis and basketball, 
to modern sports such as mountain biking, rock 
climbing, sailing, kayaking and orienteering." 

The Wey Valley School became a specialist Sports 
College in 2003; the only one in the Borough of Wey¬ 
mouth and Portland; and offers an unusually wide 
range of PE related qualifications such as the BTEC 
First Diploma in Sport, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, 
and the Sports Leaders Awards. 

Asa result, 95 per cent of Year 11 pupils at Wey Val¬ 
ley can expect to gain a further qualification in one or 
more specialism because of their participation in one 
or more of the many sports activities run at the 
school. 

investment in sport 

Over the past 10 years more than £1,750,000 has 
been invested in improved sporting facilities at Wey 
Valley, including provision of a new fitness studio, a 
dance studio, a floodlit multi-use games area for net- 
ball and football and an athletics sprint track. 

Its most recent addition,The Wey Valley Tennis Cen¬ 
tre; part-funded by the Lawn Tennis Association; is the 
only one of its kind to allow access to all racquet 
games between Exeter and Bournemouth.

Portland U13 86-5 beat 

Charlton Down 82-4 by 
four RUNS 

ASKED to bat Portland 
began well with 18 coming 
from the first three overs. 

However, with Rossiter dis¬ 
missing Portland's skipper 
Joe Adkins (8) the run rate 
slowed. 

It was only the aggressive 
hitting of Jacob Coombs (16) 
that enabled the score to 
progress to a modest 86. 

Charlton's reply got off to 
the worst possible start with 
Coombs dismissing D Leev- 
ers for a duck in the first over. 

Adkins then dismissed 
Moffit in the next over to 
leave Charlton struggling at 
5 for 2. 

Harrington sparked a re¬ 
vival with 25 as the game 
swung in Charlton's favour. 

But Charlie Durrant pro¬ 
duced a tight spell taking 2- 
16 which left Charlton 
needing 12 off the last over, 
and despite the valiant effort 
of Harrington, who re¬ 
mained unbeaten, fell four 
runs short. 


Opportunity to support 
Chance to Shine 

THE public have the oppor¬ 
tunity of supporting the 
Chance to Shine charity 
whose object is to get cricket 
being played in schools. 

Tomorrow (Thursday) July 
10th will see Portland Red 
Triangle Cricket Club host the 
annual Chance to Shine 
Cricket Tournament at its 
grounds at Reforne, Portland 
from 9.45am until2.30pm. 

The event now in its 7th 
year will see teams from 
Southwell IPACA, Underhill 
IPACA, St.George's Primary 
and Wyke Regis Juniors do 
battle in this ever popular 
event, with St.George's out to 
retain the trophy they won 
last year in a thrilling final 
against Southwell. 

Portland Red Triangle's 
Grant Neven has been in the 
forefront of taking cricket 
into local schools and gives 
us an insight to Chance to 
Shine. 

'Two million children are 
playing cricket today thanks 
to our Chance to Shine cam¬ 
paign; we're leaving a legacy 
of cricket in schools and ed¬ 
ucating thousands of chil¬ 
dren at the same time. 

"Rewind to May 2005 and 
the outlook for schools' 
cricket were bleak. 

"The country's traditional 
summer sport was in rapid 
decline and in real danger of 
dying out in many schools. 

Less than 10 per cent of 
state schools played any 
form of meaningful cricket. 
Children were just not get¬ 
ting the chance to play 
cricket at school and urgent 
action was needed. 

The architects of Chance to 
Shine are Lord Mervyn King, 
Mark Nicholas and Duncan 
Fearnley with the Cricket 
Foundation firmly backing 
the charity's simple idea; link 
cricket clubs to local schools, 
pay qualified coaches to de¬ 
liver cricket sessions and 
matches in schools, and 
train teachers and encour¬ 
age children to come and 
play at cricket clubs - and it’s 
worked."

Local trio sitting in pole-positions 


ONCE again it was a good weekend 
for most of our local sides with victo¬ 
ries by Weymouth and Dorchester 
seeing them top the table as we go 
into the second half of the season. 

Cattistock remain top of County Di¬ 
vision Two despite losing to a revi¬ 
talised Dorchester 2nds, whilst 
Beaminster 1st played their first 
home league match of the season, 
the previous three having been 
washed out.

Weymouth 148-4 beat 

SWANAGE 145 ALL OUT BY 6 WICKETS 

WEYMOUTH hit the top of the Pre¬ 
mier League 1 following this six- 
wicket win over Swanage after 
leaders Parley were beaten at Stal- 
bridge. 

Opening bowler Dan Hutchens put 
the skids under the visitors, removing 
four of their top six batsmen as he fin¬ 
ished with a superb return of 4-26 
from his 10 overs. 

With Neil Walton (3-30) giving excel¬ 
lent back up, the Swans were dis¬ 
missed for 145 with only Dan Salmon 
with a patient 50 able to contain the 
bowlers. 

Despite Matt Lawes (50) being un¬ 
able to bowl because of a hip injury, 
he was able to bat and his half cen¬ 
tury together with 33 from Paul Payne 
saw the Seasiders home 

Premier League 2 

Dorchester 130-4 beat Wimborne & 
COLEHILL 2nd 1 24 ALL OUT BY 6 WICKETS 

AUSSIE Eamonn Scott (7-43) pro¬ 
duced the best bowling performance 
of the week before helping captain 
Dan Belt bat his side to victory and 
top spot. 

Wimborne & Colehill had made a 
good start having been put in, and 
Marcus Cook (32) and Darren Jones 
(25) put on 68 for the first wicket be¬ 
fore Scott had the latter caught be¬ 
hind by Josh Foot, and soon after the 
very economical Will Caldwell (1-10 
from 10 overs) dismissed Cook. 

The visitors had no answer to Scott 
who then ripped through them to 
leave them floundering at 108-8 with 
only S Prince (12) and Adrian Loader 
(12) managing double figures. 

Dorchester also started confidently 
in reply with Caldwell (18) and Pete 
Moxom (33) adding 55 for the first 
wicket but Dave Hills (3-20) saw the 
county town lose four wickets in 
quick succession to leave them 68-4. 

However Belt (42 not out) and Scott 
(21 not out) steered them to a com¬ 
fortable victory in only 32 overs. 

Martinstown 176 all out beat 

Broadstone 2nd 109 all out by 67 

RUNS 

MARTINSTOWN made hard work of 
beating Broadstone and a poor bat¬ 
ting performance saw them only col¬ 
lect 18 points to leave Dorchester 



clear by two. 

Having lost Henry Lewis early on, 
Dave Herbert (21) and skipper Ed 
Nichols (34) added 55 for the second 
wicket, but from them on the batting 
stuttered. Sam Kershaw hit 17 but it 
needed an eighth wicket stand of 47 
between Ross Stewart (23) and Ryan 
Chase (28 not out) to see them to 176 
all out. 

Chris Read (3-23) was on fire from 
the start of Broadstone's reply and 
soon reduced them to 27-3. Liam 
Banfield (4-29) who came on as first 
change, then nabbed the next four 
wickets, leaving the visitors 59-7 and 
a lot to do. 

Although Matthew Swindlehurst hit 
a defiant 34 aided by Rich Poole (15), 
Chase (2-25) and Teddy Andrews (1- 
12) tidied up the tail end to give Mar¬ 
tinstown their seventh win of the 


County Division Two 
Beaminster 176 all out lost to 

Stalbridge 2nd 177-7 by 3 wickets 

BEAMINSTER finally played their first 
game of the season at the Memorial 
Playing Fields, and should have been 
celebrating with a victory. 

Instead they let Stalbridge 2nds off 
the hook. Having set the visitors a 
competitive target of 176, they had 
the visitors at 58-6 and staring defeat 
in the face. 

However a seventh wicket stand of 
105 between J Fryer with an un¬ 
beaten 70, and R Knight (33) which 
saw Beaminster put down four 
straight forward catches, turned the 
game their way. 

Fred Everitt and Jack Walklett made 
a solid start on a lively wicket, but 
when they were dismissed for 13 
apiece and Will Everitt went for duck, 
Beaminster were 33-3. 

The innings was rebuilt however 
during a 78 run partnership between 
Ross Baker (50) and Hugh Rathbone 
(33) despite the latter needing a run¬ 
ner, and with Aidie Phillips (25) con¬ 
tinuing the momentum with the tail, 
the last man was bowled on the final 
delivery of the innings. 

In reply, Murray Legg (2-38) and 
Ross Baker both bowled well by ex¬ 
tracting bounce and movement off of 
the pitch, and with Legg bowling the 
dangerous Michael Chant for four, 
Stalbridge crawled along to 31 -2 after 
14 overs. 

Change bowlers Jack Walklett (2-45) 
and Aidey Phillips (3-43) came on and 
took wickets to leave the visitors reel¬ 
ing on 58-6, but dropped catches and 
aggressive play from Fryer saw him 
guide his side over the winning line. 

Cattistock 71 all out lost to 

Dorchester 2nd 136 all out by 65 

RUNS 

LEAGUE leaders Cattistock slumped 
to their second defeat of the season 
when they were beaten by a revi¬ 
talised Dorchester 2nds who com¬ 
pleted their fourth victory in a row 
after failing to win any of their previ¬ 
ous five. 

Asked to bat on a tricky wicket 
which was seaming a lot they strug¬ 
gled to make progress and were 42-3 
when Marcus Evans was out for 20. 
However a fourth wicket stand of 51 
between Mike Peak (39) and Stuart 
Beasley (38) put the county town 
back on track until Beasley was bril¬ 
liantly caught by Sam Baker off the 
first ball off spinner Jon Legg (2-22). 

Peak continued to defy the home 
attack, occupying the crease for 106 
minutes, but late wickets for Bradley 
Mullins (3-2) together with Martin 
Langford (3-42) saw Dorchester finally 



dismissed for 136. 

Skipper Beasley said: "Mike batted 
for well for his 39, but the last six bats¬ 
men only managed eight runs be¬ 
tween them due to some very good 
bowling from the opposition. 

For the second week on the trot we 
didn't reach 150 and were all out for 
136,. But knowing that we defended 
140 last week we were confident that 
we could do it again." 

They nearly got off to the perfect 
start when Peak got Legg (22) to edge 
the first ball of the innings behind.. 

The introduction of Pete Horne and 
Beasley was the key to the county 
town's victory. Horne took wickets 
with consecutive balls in his first over, 
then a great bit of fielding by Matt 
Porter sawMartin Langford run out. 

Horne finished with superb figures 
8-2-12-5 whilst Beasley weighed in 3- 
16 from his 8 overs, with Steve Tucker 
(15) the only other home player to 
reach double figures. 

Beasley added: "This was an amaz¬ 
ing win for the team. We have now 
won four on the bounce and the 
team have deserved every win. 

"Okay, we need to hit a few more 
runs but our bowling and fielding has 
been amazing. 

"Pete Horne has taken five wickets 
in both his last two games and they 
couldn't of come at a better time as 
we had a poor start to the season. 

"We have Beaminster next week 
and we will prepare like we have for 
all games and hopefully get full 
points from the game." 

Portland RT 207-6 beat 

Weymouth 2nd 171 all out by 36 

RUNS 

Portland RT got the better of local ri¬ 
vals Weymouth 2nds winning by 36 
runs. 

County Division Three 
PlMPERNE 1 45 ALL OUT LOST TO 
Bridport 226-7 by 81 runs 

DUANE Gay made it three wins out of 
three since taking over as captain of 
Bridport to complete the double over 
Pimperne despite having just ten 
players. 

Batting first they made a solid start 
through Mark Smith (25) and Alex Lee 
(10), but with only Gay adding signifi¬ 
cantly to the score with 30, they 
found themselves 93-5. 

However the innings was rescued 
by a sixth wicket stand of 114 be¬ 
tween Rod Gay (70) and Ed Halson 
(52). 

Scoring freely they accelerated the 
score over the final overs with Gay 
striking 14 boundaries and taking 20 
off of one over to allow Bridport to 
finish on 226-7. 

A tight opening spell from Ollie Lee 
(4-22) and Liam Toohill (0-11 from 5 
overs) saw the visitors struggling for 
runs, and with Alex Lee (2-19) and 
Rod Gay (0-20) also bowling mean 
spells, Pimperne only had 59 on the 


board after 20 overs. 

However T House, who hit four sixes 
in his 47, and captain Regan (38) 
started to look dangerous until Ollie 
Lee removed them. 

Paul Stoneley then came on for his 
first bowl of the season to claim 2-22 
as Pimperne were dismissed for 145 
all out. 

Skipper Gay said:"Both Rod Gay and 
Ed Halson were outstanding with the 
bat and won us the game. 

"Also Ollie Lee has matured so much 
with his bowling over the last few 
weeks; he's the best bowler I have 
seen in Dorset so far this season for 
his age by a mile. He bowled tight at 
the start, and did the business when 
we needed a wicket when I brought 
him on again." 

County Division Four 

Swanage 2nd 168-9 beat Portland 
RT 2ND 53 ALL OUT BY 11 5 RUNS 

County Division Five 
Charlton Down 245-9 beat Winfrith 

Newburgh 70 all out by 175 runs 

CHARLTON Down continued their re¬ 
lentless chase of leaders Chalke Valley 
to stay three points behind with a 
game in hand, although they did it 
the hard way. 

Batting first they soon lost James 
Franzen, and with S Green (4-55) in 
form, relied on Jae Miller (48) to keep 
them in the game. He finally found a 
partner in Kim Park (33), but at 88-6 
things were looking ominous. 

However Nick Voss (35 not out) 
steadied the ship and after a partner¬ 
ship of 41 with Johnny Oehler (9), he 
completed the recovery by adding 
114 for the eighth wicket with wick¬ 
etkeeper Rob Deadman (49) in a fan¬ 
tastic display of patience and shot 
selection to hoist Down's total to 245- 
9. 

Winfrith soon succumbed to the 
Charlton Down seamers who bowled 
an accurate line and length from the 
first over and Miller (1 -9) soon struck, 
before Park bowled Day with his first 
ball and had Walsh caught by Sam 
Roles in the same over. 

When Matt Stevens had Alan King 
caught behind, Winfrith had slumped 
to 23-4 in the ninth over. 

Park then continued with a devas¬ 
tating spell, bowling White and hav¬ 
ing Rachel King brilliantly caught in 
the slips by Matt Stevens to claim fig¬ 
ures of 4-6. 

It was soon 42-8 when Roles (2-13) 
had Newman smartly stumped by 
Deadman and debutant Mark 
Stephen (1-13) then picked up the 
wicket of Sam Green with a sharp 
catch by Oehler at cover. 

It was left to Jack Eveleigh (1-3) to 
bowl Sean Everill for 25 as Winfrith 
were all out for 70. 

Captain Pete Tucker said: "After 10 
overs I thought the game was going 
to end quite quickly after losing six 
batsmen and only 88 runs scored. 

"However, it shows what strength 
the team has and how talented the 
young players have become. 

"Nick Voss and Rob Deadman 
showed great maturity and both 
grabbed an opportunity to spend 
some time at the crease and build an 
innings under extreme pressure. 

"Kim Park then turned in a great dis¬ 
play with bat and ball as one of the 
senior players." 

County Division Six 
Parley 5th 57-8 beat Beaminster 2nd 

56 ALL OUT BY 2 WICKETS 

BEAMINSTER 2nds came close to 
their first victory of the season when 
they went down to Parley 5ths in a 


low scoring encounter. 

Sunday Division Four 
Cheselbourne 208-9 beat 
Symene 207-2 BY 1 WICKET 

DESPITE scoring over 200 with only 
two wickets down, Symene finally lost 
out to Cheselbourne who only 
started with nine men but finished 
with 11, more than Symene who 
played throughout with ten. 

Batting first Symene lost Nigel 
Toohill early on and then Steve Prior 
had to retire after facing a couple of 
balls. 

However Ollie Lee (74) and Phil 
Hawkins (74 not out) repaired the 
damage with a stand of 130 plus, be¬ 
fore Hawkins and Callum Pattinson 
(25 not out) added another 60, al¬ 
though the score might have been 
bigger had they not got bogged 
down for a while ten overs from the 
end. 

Had a hard chance off Ed Nichols 
been taken early on, Symene would 
have won this game, but he went on 
to top score for the hosts with 88, and 
although Cheselbourne finally made 
a full complement that saw them 
squeeze home by a single wicket. 

Symene paid for conceding 40 ex¬ 
tras and dropping catches, one an 
very easy one in the last over which 
would have secured victory. 

Colin Willcox, Kevin Pragnell and 
Liam Toohill all took two wickets each. 

Readers Mid-Wessex League 
Division One 

Bruton 81-3 beat Broadwindsor 
80 ALL OUT BY 7 WICKETS 

WHAT a turnaround from last week. 
The superb wicket at King's School 
looked perfect for Chris Park and Mar¬ 
tin Langford to continue from last 
week when they both smashed cen¬ 
turies in a stand of 255. 

However, both were back in the 
pavilion after five balls and Broad¬ 
windsor 0-2 having been bowled by 
MWade. 

Things didn't improve as wickets fell 
at a rate with only two players reach¬ 
ing double figures. 

Although Langford (3-35) reduced 
the hosts to 30-3, Bruton were never 
really in trouble and hit of the re¬ 
quired total inside 13 overs.

Cricket extra - Somerset ccc

viewfromonline.co.uk 


Hampshire hammered! 

A SUPERB display in the field kept alive Somerset hopes in 
this season's T20 Blast competition as they defeated high¬ 
flying Hampshire at their Aegus Bowl home writes Howard 
Larcombe. 

MarcusTrescothick chose to bat first and after he fell early 
was rewarded by a fine 60 from Craig Kieswetter and 38no 
from Alviro Petersen. 

But a final total of 155 for 4 was generally felt to be below 
par by around about 15 runs. 

The hosts reply began with the dangerous James Vince 
being trapped in front first ball by PeterTrego in the opening 
over. 

In the next over Jimmy Adams (7) got a leading edge off 
Dirk Nannes and was pouched by Craig Meschede at mid- 
off. 

After a bright start Will Smith (16) then picked out Alviro 
Petersen off an Alfonso Thomas waist high full toss as the 
score reached 33 for 3 in the fifth over. 

Things got worse for the hosts when the highly talented 
Glenn Maxwell (0) was the victim of a mixed up with partner 
Michael Carberry and was run out by the length of the pitch. 

Carberry (10) was doubtless at fault and to compound the 
error he himself was run out by a direct throw from Thomas 
to make the score 36 for 5. 

The introduction of leg spinner Max Waller saw Sean 
Ervine miss a googly and was stumped by Kieswetter and 
the score lurch to 41 for 6. 

Some big hitting from Matt Coles brought 20 from the 
12th over as Waller was put to the sword. 

Waller made amends in the next over when he took a sim¬ 
ple catch to dismiss the dangerous Coles for 25 off Trego 
with the score on 83 for 7. 

Hants seemed to have given themselves a sniff of a chance 
with a spritely ninth wicket partnership before Trescothick 
caught Kyle Abbott off Meschede and the score fizzled out 
to 116 all out to give Somerset a much-needed 39-run win. 
Scores: Somerset 755 for 4 (Kieswetter 60, Petersen 38no) beat 
Hampshire 116 all out (Thomas 2- 7 0, Trego 2-24) by 39 runs. 
♦ Meanwhile, the four-day game against Middlesex at 
Uxbridge got underway with rain curtailing day one to 62 
overs. 

The Middlesex innings owed much to a second wicket 
stand of 109 between Dawid Malan and Nick Gubbins (59). 

A two-wicket burst from PeteTrego saw the score slip from 
203 for 2 to 211 for 4 at the close. 

Craig Overton struck early on day two and Alfonso Thomas 
removed Malan for 124 for his 500th first class wicket. At 
lunch Middlesex had moved onto 319 for 7 after 93.5 overs. 
Score: Middlesex 1st innings 319 for 7 (D.Malan 124, N.Gub- 
bins 59, P.Stirling 56; Trego 2-58, Thomas 2-61, C.Overton 2-74). 
Upcoming fixture: Friday (July 7th) v Gloucestershire (at 
Taunton) -T20 Blast - 5.30pm start.

School Sport 


Colfox just miss out at Dorset School Games 

S IR John Colfox Under 13 Boys and Girls volleyball teams 
just missed out on winners medals at the Dorset School 
Games held in the grounds of Bryanston School last 
week. 

In the end they had to settle for runners-up after a long 
fought battle in soaring temperatures on the outdoor grass 
courts against four other schools in which they put in amazing 
performances. The competition was excellently officiated by 
students from the school. 

Having qualified earlier in the year in a variety of sports, pri¬ 
mary and secondary aged students (Years 5-8), spent the day 
competing against the best in the county. 

Athletes from Year 5 and 6 Loders and Bridport St Mary's pri¬ 
mary schools who qualified in the regional finals held at Colfox 
School a few weeks ago, also attended to take part in the 
Quadkids athletics event with Year 4 Salway Ash and 
Symondsbury pupils who represented the west in the tri-golf 
event. 

After the opening ceremony and competitions, students 
were able to take part in a cultural village where African danc¬ 
ing and smoothie cycling were two of the most popular activ¬ 
ities on offer. 

The young athletes were looking forward to wearing their 
Dorset School Games t-shirts with pride on their return to 
school. 



Promising FA cup and vase draws for Bridport 


FOR once Bridport have received 
favourable draws in their quest for 
success in the FA Cup and FA Vase 
next season. 

The Bees could be excused for 
dreaming of Wembley following a 
home draw against Hellenic 
League Premier Division side High- 
worth Town in the Extra Prelimi¬ 
nary Round of the FA Cup which 
takes place on 16th August. 

Victory would mean them travel¬ 
ling to face either Western League 


Premier League rivals Bitton, or 
Blackfield & Langley of the Wessex 
League Premier Division two weeks 
later. 

Should they be successful they re¬ 
turn to St Marys for a 1st Qualify¬ 
ing Round game on September 
13th. 

In the FA Vase they could meet 
two more Wessex league sides. If 
the beat visitors Totton & Eling in 
the 1st Qualifying Round on Sep¬ 
tember 6th they would meet East 


Cowes Victoria Athletic in the next 
round. 

Pre-season training is well under 
way and manager Trevor Senior 
was pleased with number of play¬ 
ers that have taken part. 

He said: "We were only missing 
two first team players for the first 
session, and the turnout in general 
has been very encouraging. 

Although Lewis Clarke has de¬ 
cided not to join us now, I am very 
happy with the squad I have got, 


and we are all looking forward to 
getting underway." 

Reflecting on the cup draws, Sen¬ 
ior said: "Two home draws is a 
good start - hopefully it will bring 
a few coffers into the bank." 

The Bees start their preseason 
games underway next Tuesday 
(15th) ko 7.45pm with a home fix¬ 
ture against Portland United be¬ 
fore travelling to Chard Town for a 
double header involving the first 
and reserve teams.

Buckler settling 

RACE horse trainer Bob Buckler is settling in well to his new 
home on the edge of the Quantocks after leaving his Hen¬ 
ley base in April writes Stuart Broom. 

Speaking exclusively to View Sport he said: "Things are 
still fairly hectic here with renovation to the stables taking 
place but things are beginning to take shape; but it is a 
wonderful spot and I am really enjoying the new life of 
being trainer and farmer." 

Buckler moved to Spaxton, near Bridgwater to take over 
a 60-acre farm where he could return to his roots of farm¬ 
ing whilst cutting back on the number of horses he trained. 

Head lad Giles Scott moved with him and together they 
look after 250 sheep and a herd of small horn suckling cat¬ 
tle as well as a few of the horses he had at Henley together 
with one or two new ones. 


into new home 

All are turned out at the moment except one, a new one 
to the stable, Dancing Olga, a nine-year-old who has been 
point-to-pointing and ran her first NH race at Newton 
Abbot on Monday where she finished a creditable third in 
the North Devon Hospice Mares' Novices' Hurdle over 2 3 A 
miles. 

After pecking at the first she jumped well and stayed in 
contention until the second from home where she tired be¬ 
hind the top two in the betting. 

Happy Warrior, Somerset Lias, Tinker Time, Redlynch 
Rock, Digger's Mate and Ballyegan have all moved with 
Buckler, with two new yet unraced three-year-olds Say My 
Name and Holyballydiva completing the current list. 

"We will bring the horses back in again in the latter half 
of the month ready for the new season."

Bridport men and ladies top the tables 


THE form of Bridport Bowls Club

View 



THE GP14 made an impres¬ 
sive show at the Weymouth 
and Portland National Sail¬ 
ing Academy at their annual 
National Championship. 

The 70-strong fleet has an 
enduring popularity around 
the world ever since it was 
initially designed as one of 
the first plywood dinghies 
afloat, by the most prolific 
dinghy designer and 
builder, Jack Holt in 1949. 

The eight race series was 
enjoyed by top talents in 
predominantly splendid 
sailing conditions, with a 
fleet including national and 
world champions as well as 
an Olympic silver medallist, 
competition was high in 





Weymouth Bay. 

The entries were split into 
gold, silver and bronze 
fleets using gate starts due 
to the numbers involved. 

The first day packed 
plenty of punch in Wey¬ 
mouth Bay with building 
winds into the third race. 

The second day offered a 
more gentle start for the 
134 competitors as lighter 
winds dominated into the 
final days. 

Overall it was current 
GP14 World Champions 
Dobson and Tunnicliffe who 
showed their dominance 
over the fleet, winning the 
2014 National Champi¬ 
onships with a well-man¬ 


aged string of firsts and only 
had to count one second 
place. 

This dynamic duo will 
head to defend their World 
Championship title in 
Northern Ireland during Au¬ 
gust. 

Gill Beddow, GP14 Chair¬ 
man, was delighted with 
the venue, she said: "We are 
thankful to the Weymouth 
and Portland National Sail¬ 
ing Academy for their or¬ 
ganisation on and off the 
water, making a real success 
of the event and to all our 
sponsors as well as the vol¬ 
unteers who give their time 
to allow these events to be¬ 
come a reality." 




O EXCITING RACING: GP14 competitors 
enjoyed the conditions at Weymouth for 
their national championships.
