Mrs. W, my advisor in all things relating to the Counties of Dorset and Hampshire (including the Isle of Wight) sent me this publication in the post following a very pleasant holiday with her family in the Wimborne Minster area of Dorset. The note on the front reads, “How to live at Sandbanks!” That summer we had a picnic on the beach at Sandbanks, which is a very well-to-do area; so I’ve been told. The magazine also contains a number of labels that read, “Next year”, including one next to a “New England Waterfront Property” on the market for £7,750, 000 freehold [needless to say I spent my 2013 Summer holiday in Dorset billeted in more modest accommodation]. Another “Next year” appears on page 6, next to an article about the Bournemouth Air Festival and we did [after years of talking about it] pay a visit to Bournemouth on the first day of the air show, which was great.
Perhaps one day I will be watching the Red Arrows fly over Bournemouth from the comfort of The Cumberland Hotel, as featured on the cover of “Dorset Society” magazine.
