BBC Radio Solent paid a visit to Whitfield yesterday for the Breakfast in Dorset Show. Have a listen to what they discovered.
Steve Harris (@SteveHarrisDJ) met with Julie and Dominic to find out more about The Countrymen’s Club and how it’s helping older people from Dorset’s rural communities. The project’s now been expanded to Whitfield and helping people like Brian, a retired spar maker and mechanic, who spoke to Steve about his life.

The Breakfast in Dorset Show is broadcast on 103.8FM and covers Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Wareham, Blandford Forum, Wool and many of the villages in between. Some photos from their visit can be found on the BBC Radio Solent Facebook page.
Oh, and the real star of the show was Sid the cockapoo, who handled his first interview like a pro!
