Latest News The latest from Dorset's Best Village 2018 The judges have finished their judging in the hottest summer of the competition’s history! Many of the villages seemed sleepy as they went round as most people were probably staying cool indoors. Not many cups of tea were drunk this year, many ice cold pints of water and lots of ice cream instead! The Dorset Best Village Team is taking a moment to take a break by the seaside as you can see by the photo before preparations start for the Awards Evening on 25th September. Thank you to all those who have entered and we look forward to seeing in seven weeks’ time in Cerne Abbas.
