Nominate someone who has helped support your local community during Covid-19 to join a special keyworkers lunch in Poundbury

Poundbury-based Brace of Butchers is holding a Dorset feast to celebrate local community helpers for all their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday 19 June, from 11.30am invited community groups will enjoy the finest local produce prepared by some of the region’s best chefs, and award-winning Brace of Butchers is seeking nominations for 10 more unsung heroes to join this celebration.

Already attending will be: Dorchester Community Support Group, Poundbury Community Coronavirus Help Group, The Storehouse Church (Dorchester), Dorchester Community Kitchen, Dorchester Community Church, Dorchester Foodbank, Damers School and Prince of Wales School. To ensure the day meets current social distancing rules each group will be limited in size and be given a time to enjoy their meal. But there is one time slot left and this is where the Brace of Butchers wants to hear from you.

There are 10 places for nominated unsung heroes. Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty for the local community in recent weeks? This could be a paramedic, teacher, take away service, village community support – or someone who has just shown true kindness during these difficult times and who deserves a thank you. Nominations can be made by emailing The Brace of Butchers on or on The Brace of Butchers Facebook page from Monday at midday, by commenting on their post.
