Trains and more!
We are celebrating our eldest daughter's 21st Birthday this weekend and she will be arriving here by train. We are very lucky to live in a location where transport provision is excellent. Some of our family were also planning on using the train to visit us this weekend from Southampton, but it appears there is going to be disruption due to engineering works. Please use this link if you are also planning on travelling by train this weekend!

Last weekend we rented a car from U-drive which is located next to Dorchester Station. We needed to go to Bath on an important shopping trip to look for a dress for our other daughter to wear to her school Spring Ball in April. The car rental for 1 day including petrol was about the same cost as using the First Great Western service from Dorchester West Station which is good but can be a bit busy on a Saturday coming home.
The National express coach service also uses Dorchester station as a stop so there are many ways to travel around the UK from here.
I am looking forward to the Brewery Square plan for the UK's first solar powered station to be built, and for a lift to be installed for disabled passengers, to enable them to access both platforms.
