The Burton Bradstock Millennium Book

return to whats new

You are invited to join us in Burton Bradstock School on Wednesday, 22nd. November from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. to view the Village's Millennium Book. You will have the opportunity to 'thumb through the pages' and discover past history and information on current local activities. There will be free wine and nibbles too! Everyone is welcome and entrance is free - after all, the book belongs to you!

This Millennium Project aims to record, in one place, everything there is to know about Burton Bradstock, its past, its present and its future. The book already has a number of articles covering history, prehistory and the geology of the village. But now we need your assistance in adding even more material, especially old photographs or maps, information and stories - can you help? We want anything about the village.

However, the Millennium Book doesn't just cover historical events - it also records what is happening now - in fact, there are over 100 photographs of villagers involved in such events as the New Year celebrations, the Tapestry, July's Millennium Week Celebrations, the Flower and Produce Show, and the Church Fete.

Many of you are in these photos! Would you like to see them?

The book also acts as a central point of reference covering many local organisations/facilities which you might want to contact or look up (e.g. the utilities or the local weather forecast or the bus timetable), and it covers a wealth of other topics such as sport & leisure, genealogy, wildlife, environment etc..

You will by now have realised that this 'book' is, in fact, the Burton Bradstock Village Web Site; but really it is just a book - albeit a living book that is being continually updated. Don't be put off by its modern 'binding', as we have plans to make it easily accessible to everyone. And, we do need YOUR contribution to help its further development, so please come along.

or you can contact Ken Pett (Secretary to the Burton Bradstock Village Web Site Committee) on Tel: 897 550 for more information or to offer help, advice or material.
