New Look To Dorchester Town Centre
9:01am 21st June 2013
New look benches in South Street in Dorchester are the talk of the town.
The transformation has taken place over the last few months.
The work was organised by the Dorchester BID and the town council, who came forward after no one else wanted to take responsibility for their upkeep.
Local craftsmen were employed to renovate them - as new benches would have cost up to £9,000.
Town Mayor Stella Jones commented: "The old benches were becoming an eyesore so it's lovely to have something attractive and comfortable once more to sit on in town".
