This month’s main speaker will be Trevor Hedger, Heritage and Tourism Project Manager, Dorchester Town Council. Trevor has recently been appointed to produce a heritage and tourism strategy for the town and will present a draft of this plan at the breakfast and invite comments from members and those attending.
Trevor was previously Senior Economic Regeneration Officer with Dorset Council and has extensive experience in creating Business Improvement Districts and developing and supporting projects and individual businesses to set up, secure funding and grow or resolve challenges.
Dorchester’s rich heritage contributes massively to the local economy, attracting visitors from all over the world. The county town has a wealth of historic monuments and buildings ranging from neolithic Maumbury Rings, the iron age fort at Maiden Castle, a Roman town house, Roman walls, as well as a network of underground tunnels. Justice has figured highly in the town’s history following the Monmouth Rebellion and the bloody assizes presided over by Judge Jefferies and the trials of the Tolpuddle Martyrs at Shire Hall. The connection to literary giants such as Thomas Hardy and William Barnes add to its appeal.
Camilla Call, Brexit Advisor, Dorset Chamber of Commerce & Industry will also speak about the support available to Dorset Businesses following Brexit. Camilla will advise where to get up to date information and advice on trade relationships and other issues during the transition period.
