The bus will be running to the same timetable as before but working to Covid safe guidance which means that, unfortunately, passenger numbers on board at any one time will be limited.  We are asking ALL passengers to RING the bus before they travel on 07716 643087.  Every effort will be made to seat couples and families together and please tell us if you intend to come back on the bus so that a return seat can be booked – we would hate to leave anyone behind.

The phone number will be available for bookings all week and will be on the bus on Saturdays.

All Covid precautions have been put in place – ALL passengers are required to use the hand gel on boarding the bus and (unless you have a dispensation) wear a face mask.

Please pass this good news on to your friends and neighbours and the volunteers look forward to seeing you back on the bus on Saturdays.”

There are old photographs already being submitted to their Facebook page including the black and white one below where they are asking for identification of the prize winning lady in the photograph!

Melplash Lady

You can share your favourite memories, anecdotes, memorabilia, photos or videos…. anything at all. We want to see your fluffy sheep, handsome cows, massive tractors…..just post on our Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram @bridportmuseum using the hashtag #MelplashMemories.
Thankfully, if you’re not a fan of social media – you can simply email your images to  director@bridportmuseum.co.uk and they will post it up for you.

Melplash Safe 2020Cancellation of the show does not mean no show badges! For 2020 they have produced a limited edition badge which is available to pick up from Bridport Tourist Information Centre.

There are numbered zones on the ramps which will help with social distancing and make users feel safe. Rob said: “If we get busy or we have youngsters we can say, ‘stay in that zone’ and people can keep in their zones, not just because of the virus, but if they are learning, hopefully it will stop a collision or two.

Don’t want to take part but watch?
Skate And Ride - viewngThen relax on one of their comfortable stools in the viewing gallery.

Rob Ridge and Dom Brown, known for The Trick Factory indoor skate park which closed in St Michael’s, Bridport in 2016 got the thumbs up from Dorset Council to change the use of unit 2A from a general industrial unit, to a skate park, with support by Bradpole parish council.  They and their team would like to thank all those who donated to the facility’s Crowdfunder and all the local businesses that donated money or equipment.
They are still seeking volunteers to supervise and businesses to advertise at the skate park.  Keep up to date and communicate with them through their Facebook page HERE.
