What makes the Beaminster truly special are the people who call it home.

Beaminster is hardly a sleepy town. It is alive with community initiatives and projects, home to fantastic independent traders and businesses, residence of award-winning eateries that cater to pallets of all types, base for service providers serving the rest of the world from the heart of Dorset, treasure trove of exciting visitor attractions, sights to see and places to explore that lie waiting for any inquisitive explorer.

Events that include Beaminster Festival – annual an music & arts festival and a Vintage Horse & Dog show called Buckham Fair garner national attention, bringing visitors to this beautiful Dorset town throughout the year with authentic Dorset hospitality being exuded from local B&Bs and guesthouses in the area.

But what makes the Beaminster Community truly special are the people who call it home – whether permanently, or for short periods of time. From working professionals and families, those who’ve chosen to settle here or those who are 4th or 5th generation residents, to people who have served their entire lives making those of others better, Beaminster Community has always offered opportunities to make a real difference to those around them and the environment within which we live.
