20th August – Dorchester Chamber Picnic

20/08/2020, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Sunninghill Prep School


Please join us for our Dorchester Chamber Picnic – an outdoor event on Thursday, 20th August 2020 at Sunninghill School, South Court, South Walks Road, Dorchester, Dorset DT1 1EB from 12pm to 2.30pm.

As we slowly return to normality, we are putting on a smaller event than we would usually run, compliant with Govt guidelines and with social-distancing measures in place.

The picnic will take place outdoors in the beautiful grounds of Sunninghill School, provided the British weather allows.  A wet-weather contingency plan is in place and the event will move indoors to the Sports Hall if it rains.  This will be already set up with appropriately spaced tables and seating.

Speakers will be Alistair Chisholm, Dorchester’s Town Crier, telling us about the fascinating story and heritage of the school, Steve Bulley, Dorset Chamber, speaking about how Dorset Chamber has worked closely with multi-agencies and other town chambers to provide support through the crisis and David Selves, Selves Group,  giving us a motivational talk and tips on how to survive the `new normal’.

A delicious picnic lunch will be provided.

Alistair Chisholm, Town Crier

David Selves, Selves Group


Executive: Steve Bulley
