Village Clubs

Local History Broadmayne...


...consists of a group of people interested in the history, recent and not so recent, of Broadmayne and its environs. The group meets regularly, and from these meetings a number of events to involve the people of Broadmayne (and beyond) have been held. These have included meetings about a Parish Map, which the group aims to produce; the former Broadmayne Brickworks; some interesting village houses; old films of Broadmayne; the history of the watercress industry; and recollections of a Broadmayne childhood. There have been two outdoor events – a visit to a former brick kiln and the deserted mediaeval village, and a walk in Knighton Heath Woods. Although these woods are not strictly Broadmayne, the group is interested because of connections with the wartime Warmwell airfield, and the possible threat to the remaining portion of the wood through sand and gravel extraction. The group was pleased to discover that the wood is safe from further encroachment, and in fact the ‘moonscape’ left by the sand and gravel work is to be restored to a natural state.

Recent projects for the group include an investigation of the route of the ‘sand train’ – a (possibly) horse-drawn tramway that used to bring sand to the Broadmayne Brickworks from Puddletown Forest.

The group intends to hold two or three public meetings or other events every year. A future meeting will explore the development of farming in the area. So far attendance at the meetings already held has been good, and the group hopes to continue to find topics that will be of interest to villagers past and present.

The group is always pleased to hear from anyone who has particular memories of the village, or interesting documents, photographs or artefacts about village life in days gone by.

Short Mat Bowls Club

New members always welcome, why not give it a try?


The Club was established in 1990. Members worked hard to raise funds and with a grant from the Dorset County Council, were able to purchase two mats, three sets of bowls and equipment and got under way with some twenty members. Initially two teams played in local leagues.

Short mat bowls uses the same bowls as the parent outdoor game and is one of a family of bowls games that have been played for centuries. It does not require its players to be physically fit but it provides gentle exercise to help keep you fit, very much a sport for all ages.

Bowling takes place from 7.00pm on Friday evenings in the Village Hall and the session lasts two hours. It costs less than £2.00 including the hire of woods. No special equipment is required but outdoor shoes may not be worn when playing so bring along your carpet slippers or similar.

Anyone wishing to have a free trial or lesson will be welcome and you can find further information by calling 01305 852285.

Broadmayne Scout Group

The Broadmayne Scout Group meet weekly on a Monday evening in the village hall during school term times. We have three sections:

Beavers for 6 to 8 year olds. These are our youngest members. We take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.

Meet at 17:30 until 18:30 Contact Beaver Leader Tara Latham at taralatham@aol.com

Cubs for ages 8-10½. The Cub Scout Pack is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. Our Cub Scout meeting consist of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.

Meet at 18:30 until 20:00 Contact Cub Scout Leader Val Latham on vallatham@aol.com

Scouts for ages 10½–14. This is a new section for Broadmayne and we are encouraging new members to come along. A Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing, potholing, dragon boating, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.

Meet at 19:30 until 21:00 Contact Scout Leader Ian Brown at glebefarmhouse@tiscali.co.uk


Please do contact us if you have a child interested in joining or if you are an adult interested in helping us with the children or with the administration.

Line Dancing

There are still some of you who have not returned to L & B line dancing in the Village Hall. You will remember the basic steps so there is no need to feel that you've been left behind. After all, we are all in the same boat when it comes to learning new dances and Lyn still runs through the ones originally taught.
Join us at 2.00pm every Tuesday for an hour and a half of fun and, of course, gentle exercise.
