The evenings are lighter and Easter is almost upon us…The Comrades Hall holds its A.G.M. and desperately need new committee members/Trustees… Our community pub, The White Lion celebrates one year being open…
There is a lot happening! Click HEREand get the dates in your calendar 🙂
Intended to be on the first Friday of each month, next Friday is Good Friday and there will be no Post Office services so Derek is coming in on Tuesday morning instead at 10am.
Bring along your watches that have been lying in drawers for years or that old clock that stopped working… how long ago? Derek also offers replacement batteries or watch straps.
Customers will need to pay for any replacement parts used but Derek is only requesting a small donation for his services to go to the Post Office Users Group fund 🙂
Parishioners will be familiar with village residents Phil & Lauren Rosenburg performing a selection of lovely songs at last years BFG Jubilee celebrations. We are fortunate to look forward to an evening’s acoustic performance from them both with their guest Andy Smith performing classic Rock & Pop songs from the 1960’s to the present day.
Doors open (and the bar*) at 6.45pm on Friday, 28th April at The Comrades Hall. The performance begins at 7.30pm.
At 7.30pm at the Comrades Hall on Friday, 21st April, Broadwindsor’s Community Film Club will be showing…
Moonage Daydream (15)
A cinematic odyssey exploring David Bowie’s creative and musical journey. Running time: 2hrs 15mins.
Moonage Daydream had its world premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival on 23rd May 2022. From Oscar nominated film-maker Brett Morgen, Moonage Daydream is an immersive cinematic experience; an audio-visual space odyssey that not only illuminates the enigmatic legacy of David Bowie, but also serves as a guide to living a fulfilling and meaningful life in the 21st century.
Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performances and music, Moonage Daydream is the first film, officially sanctioned by the Bowie estate, to explore Bowie‘s creative, musical and spiritual journey, guided by Bowie‘s own narration.
Bandleader, composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ whose interests ranged from rock, jazz, funk, soul and British folk to musical styles from Africa, Latin America and Asia; our village resident, our friend, Simon Emmerson‘s funeral will take place on Thursday, 6th April. Simon died peacefully on on Monday, 13th March.
‘There will be a live webcast shown in the Comrades Hall beginning at 12 noon. There is no dress code and those who wish to pay their respects to Simon are warmly welcome.
A pay bar will be available with all profits going to the White Lion community pub.
Warm wishes fromKaren, Ted and Josie.’

From last night’s party organisers, John & Lynne Staff:
Our Village Party at the hall on Saturday was a stunning success. Thanks to our local band McIntyre with Wendy Shields and Brian Wing guesting. It would have been almost impossible without the generous donation from the Broadwindsor Fun Group and the support of all those who helped on the day. A big thank you also goes to Kate, Chloe and Louise for preparing the food and all those who helped on the bar. A special thanks goes to Margaret and Jane from the Broadwindsor Community Shop for their advice and support.
Not to forget the a huge thank you to all those who turned up!
A great evening, lets hope we’ll be able to do it again soon.
The principal aim of the Broadwindsor Group Parish Community Land Trust is to provide a small development of affordable housing for rent to people with a direct connection to the villages within this Parish:
They are now in a position to offer 15 new homes at Netherhay, Drimpton which are due for completion in June 2023.
To be eligible for one of these new homes, you must be registered with, or apply now to, Dorset Council Housing Register – Click HERE. Be sure to notify them of your interest in this CLT housing development in Drimpton.
Members of the CLT committee*, along with a representative from Abri, one of the largest housing association based in the south of England, will be available to show you the plans, tell you more about the project and to answer any questions you may have on the two following days in Drimpton and Broadwindsor:
Saturday, 25th March, 10.30am – 12 noon at Drimpton Village Hall.
