Dorset Map

8:05am 20th January 2015

The search is on to find Dorset's best village.

The County's Best Village Competition is being launched for its 29th year with categories including Environment, Best Village Shop and People's Project as well as - of course - best village and its being run by Dorset Community Action.

DCA Competition Organiser Rita Burden said villages in our area tend to do quite well.

She told Wessex FM: "West Dorset last year sort of ran off with all the prizes!"

"Martinstown was the winner of the best villages, Loders won small village and Steepleton was the winner of the best Hamlet."

The deadline for entries is 5.00pm on Monday 6th April 2015. DCA is encouraging groups to save paper and postage by entering the competition online if possible.          

Entry packs can be downloaded from www.dorsetcommunityaction.org.uk, or by telephoning DCA on 01305 216407 to be sent a copy by email or on paper.
