Martinstown are Winners of Dorset Best Village 2018 - Large Village, Previous Winners category
At the presentation evening this week for Dorset Best Village 2018 organised by Dorset Community Action, sponsored by Magna Housing and supported by Dorset Echo, Martinstown was the winner in the category of Large Village - Previous Winner (i.e. there is a category for villages that have been previous winners so that the same village can’t win every time).
The Dorset Echo reports that: “Judges travelled more than 900 miles across Dorset this summer as they inspected villages taking part. While looking out for well-kept greens and finger posts, tidy churchyards and rubbish-free playgrounds, they also note the work going on in communities behind the scenes to look after their villages.”
