Famous Five meet a famous one!

As I recently mentioned, Joanne, Katie and Nickie went along to the premiere of Tamara Drewe at Bridport’s Electric Palace to help promote the Dorset Famous Five. In the photo above you can see Posy Simmonds, author of the original comic-book series in the Guardian, on which the film is based, with one of the Dorset Famous Five Goodie bags.

Apparently they went down a storm at the premier, well who wouldn’t prefer, fair trade tea from Clipper, award winning cheese from Denhay, mini packs of Dorset Cereals, Golden Champion real ale from Badger and delicious olives from Olives Et Al, to an overpriced bag of pop-corn and a measly bag of Maltesers!

Tonight there’s another big event for the PPR team. Katie and Joanne have been working really hard on a project with Castle Gardens in Sherborne to open The Green Shed. The Green Shed, which has been funded by local body Chalk + Cheese, is situated at the back of Castle Gardens and will initially be open for three days a week.  During this time, adults with learning difficulties in the area will be able to use the new workshop to continue and further develop community recycling projects, including plant pot recycling, wood recycling, compost making and veggie growing.

Tonight the Mayor of Sherborne and everyone involved in the project will be attending the opening, before a special open morning tomorrow – Saturday 2nd October (9.30am – 12.00pm) to mark the occasion – everyone is welcome!!
