Community Flower Garden Will Bring Fontmell Magna Villagers Together

A community garden filled with colourful flowers is being created in Fontmell Magna. Locals will be encouraged to cut the blooms to take home.

Sian Highnam says the Blackmore Vale GP practice, Dorset Mind and Sarah Rampton’s dementia support group ‘In Jolly Good Company’ support this project.

Now she is keen to find a name for this space. You can email her at
