Our communities has supported us all these years and it is our pleasure to be able to give back to them. From local charities and voluntary organisations, to the independent businesses that make our part of the world special — we’re here to help.
In 2002, we established our Community Chest to provide help for our local community in and around Dorset. Since then, we have expanded the scheme beyond Dorset and we have now donated over £600,000 to more than 750 valuable community organisations across the South of England.
Since 2012 our team members have voted for our Charity Partners, committing to raise over £100,000 each year for great causes. In just 8 years we have successfully raised nearly £1,000,000 for our chosen charities.
We welcome the Government’s decision that Public Houses can reopen from Saturday 4th July. We have been working tirelessly to prepare for this. Our priority is to reopen our pubs in a safe and controlled way for our guests and our team.
Whilst we cannot wait to welcome you back, we will be reopening our pubs in a phased approach starting from Tuesday 7th July. This is to ensure the very highest levels of hospitality can be consistently delivered, as they were before the pandemic started.
Details of which pubs will be opening when, are HERE. We suggest you keep an eye on our individual pub websites for further details of exactly when they will be reopening and what you can expect.
We continue to brew our award-winning Badger beer at our Blandford Brewery, which you can buy online HERE.
