The radio mast at Rampisham are now being felled to make way for a solar farm, this is a good thing I suppose but we'll miss those landmark spires, we'll miss picking up the world service through your fillings a nearby stock fence on a misty day, we'll miss the footless birds (don't perch on microwave antenna). Below is a poem about them penned by Margery Hookings (shortlisted from the Bridport Prize 2008 under the pen name, Maddie Grigg).

West Dorset Fencing Club championships got off to a spirited start on Thursday with eight young fencers under the age of thirteen fighting for the Junior title. Fencing being equally a sport for girls and boys, the pool was mixed, but it turned out to be the girls’ night. From five boys and three girls, the girls were 1st, 2nd and 3rd! The winner was 12 yr.old Ellie Baldwin, who fenced with tremendous determination throughout the evening and won all of her fights, thoroughly deserving her first place. She was closely contested by her friend, Caitlin Oldham, also 12, who was runner up after an exciting final bout. 3rd.place and this year’s style prize went to one of the youngest members of the club, Isabel d’Arrigo, and it was a delight to see neat and controlled fencing from a young lady of only 8 years old !
