T-Shirt With Village Slogan

As many will be aware the T-shirt logo poll closed recently with the slogan Where Community Matters‘ receiving the most votes.  There were 2,768 votes cast with the winner receiving nearly 30% of them.

The sponsor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has stated that a small company StuartAusten.co.uk has been asked to research how and where the T-shirts can be produced.

Originally, the sponsor had stated that any profits for the sale of the T-shirts should be put forward to support the Save the White Lion fund. However, given the fact that this worthy cause has exceeded its target, it has been decided that the profits will go towards the purchase of a memorial for those lost in conflict.  At present no external memorial exists in the village.

T-shirts will be £15 and the size chart is below:

If you have any questions or orders, please contact my private e mail: chagoigray@gmail.com putting T-shirt in the subject title.

Thank you.
Adrian Gray.

Emma House: Girl Guiding Hero

Leader of the 1st Broadwindsor Rainbows, 1st Broadwindsor Guides & 1st West Dorset Rangers, Emma House also holds the positions of County Growth and Retention Coordinator and West Dorset Outside Activities Advisor. An extraordinary accomplishment by itself.
Emma received a Girlguiding Hero award on the evening of Rememberance Day. It reads:

You are a Hero because…

you have gone above and beyond to promote Girl Guiding.your numerous posts on the Dorset Leaders Facebook group lifted the spirits of members during the pandemic. You rose to the challenge & took on the role of County Growth and Retention Coordinator. Whilst still continuing to post inspiring ideas on Facebook reminding us how to promote guiding locally + instigated a regular spotlight on a unit post. You have continued to run local units in your division during lockdown, arranged girl award presentations, promoted stories in the local press + led the way for the County to take part in the Bournemouth Pride Parade.

The Girlguiding Hero award is relatively new and Emma was unaware she had even been nominated or who nominated her.  All those nominated are put to a County Awards Council, discussed and decided upon who will get the award.

Well done Emma!

Villager’s Allotment Takes First Prize

Bob Link, from Orchard Mead, Broadwindsor, took home first prize in the allotment category of the Melplash Show’s Annual Garden & Allotment competition.  The competition was cancelled last year.

Bob was praised by the judges who said it was ‘an excellent allotment‘ and ‘a lot of hard work has clearly gone into it‘ – they also praised his range of fruit and vegetables and a good use of companion planting. 🙂

The event was judged by the Mayor of Bridport, Ian Bark, his wife Anne and former society chairman Jo Sage. They were accompanied by society president Nigel Jones and society chairman James Vickery.

The winners received a voucher from Bridport-based William James & Co – manufacturers and suppliers of fruit cages, netting and garden equipment – and compost from Chedington Estate.

The Prout Project Successfully Reach Their Target

Together we did it!

🚌🌈👏 TOGETHER WE DID IT!!! 👏🌈🚌

We are speechless with excitement and overwhelmed with thanks to all of our supporters!

We just now found out we’ve reached our target thanks to a contribution from the Power of Change Community Business Crowdmatch fund providing us with an additional £4,000 in funding pushing us over the line. We can now buy and kit out an outreach vehicle and make this happen at last!!

We wouldn’t have got here without all of you, our super crowd – you’ve showed compassion towards our community, dedication to sharing our message and an abundance of encouragement and heart – THANK YOU!

Our campaign remains open until next Friday and any additional donations will be used directly to fund additional staffing so that we can extend our reach and offer a wider programme to our community.

Thank you so many times. We can’t wait to celebrate with you soon! 🙏👏🙏👏
