As   part   of   the   community   Bere   14-18   Commemorations,   a small   team   is   researching   the   lives   of   the   men   of   our   three local     parishes     (Bere     Regis,     Winterborne     Kingston     & Affpuddle   /Turnerspuddle)   who   served   in   the   forces   in   the Great   War.   Their   names   are   listed   if   you   click   the   Picture above.    If   you   think   you   are   a   descendent   of   any   of   the   men listed    and    may    have    some    family    or    service    history    or mementoes   (Photos,   medals,   service   papers,   cuttings,   etc   ) about    them,    could    you    kindly    contact    Philip    Ventham    on 01929 471 215 or email here. We     would     be     very     pleased     to     speak     with     you.     Any information,    however    insignificant,    is    of    interest    as    very often,   family   recollections   can   fill   gaps   in   the   official   records. All    contributions    will    be    acknowledged    and    mementoes recorded and returned.

These     wonderful     Woods,     covering     much     of     the farmland   south   of   Shitterton   and   running   up   to   Black Hill,    were    the    idea    of    Dr    Brian    May    CBE.    Having purchased   the   land   in   2012,   he   shared   his   100,000 tree   planting   plans   and   then   proceeded   to   turn   his dreams    into    reality.    This    page    acts    as    a    pictorial record   following   that   journey   and   also   showing   you how   the   Woods   are   developing   today   and   into   the future.   As   a   village,   we   are   immensely   grateful   for Brian’s   vision   and   generations   of   villagers   to   come will benefit from his generosity.
