Swanage & Purbeck Rotary Club have recognised service to the community by three Swanage men.

The Good Food Guide 2009

Once again the restaurants in the UK have been reviewed by which?
You have to travel 20+ miles from Swanage to find a restaurant which gets even the entry level of 1 out of 10: “capable cooking, with simple food combinations and clear flavours”.
The whole of Dorset gets 9 mentions. There are twice as many in Mayfair alone. Cornwall gets 28. That’s a good reason to favour Cornwall for your holidays if you are a rich Londoner.

Swanage Blues Festival

May I thank everybody in Swanage who helped make last weekend's blues festival such a pleasurable experience for all the visitors?

I received many compliments from festival fans about the great service they received in the pubs, restaurants, shops and where they were staying.

The phrase that was used over and over again about the town and people was "warm and friendly".

Thank you everybody for continuing to make the blues festivals so successful!

Dates for next year are 6-8 March and 2-4 October 2009. If anybody wants to help in any way, please phone 01929 422338, email s.darrington@btopenworld.com or drop a line to me c/o the Tourist Information Centre, Shore Road, Swanage BH19 1LB. Thank you.
