Concert for curtains

Some 17 years ago when the North Dorset Women’s Refuge was opened, there were curtains at all the windows, in the corridors and in the flats. After this time with the hard work they have done, it is time for change.

Working with a local supplier, the Friends of the Refuge are buying new curtains with fabric chosen by the current residents. All the flats will have the same fabric and the communal areas and passage ways will have a different style. The estimate is generous and allows for alterations to readymade curtains as well as a 10% discount for which we are so very grateful.

Curtain poles will be used rather than tracks and they will be put up by the Spectrum maintenance team: again, our gratitude for that which is saving us a considerable sum and no little anxiety.


On Sunday afternoon 19th November, we are presenting a return of the Gravellers, a men’s group of a capella singers with Rose, Mary and Thyme – by popular demand

They will be at St Mary’s Motcombe at 3.00pm on Sunday 19th November.

Tickets £10.00 from the Village Shop or on the door include afternoon tea.

Please do come and support us as we raise funds for these essential curtains
