'The Bournemouth & Dorset South Beekeepers’ Association has existed since 2008 and its members form a group of friendly people who have an interest in bees ... The aim of the Association is to promote beekeeping, encourage new beekeepers and raise the awareness of the importance of bees in the natural world.'

'We are here to help you, wherever your ancestors lived and wherever you live. We will do our best to assist you, whatever your level of experience. Obviously, as the Dorset Family History Society, we are specialists in Dorset ancestry, but we also have access to worldwide resources.'  Activities 'include a variety of Talks ... on the third Tuesday in each month, except August, featuring expert speakers'.

'We work with garden owners and local and national bodies to highlight, protect and encourage the conservation and restoration of designed landscapes, ranging from stately homes to public parks, cottage gardens to cemeteries. Principally funded by over 500 members, we run visits, lectures and events where members can share their interest and knowledge in a sociable atmosphere.'

'From weekend fun to expert insights, there’s something for everyone, all year round. Explore our incredible collections on a tour of our four stunning galleries, or of our new Collections Discovery Centre. Maybe you’d like to get up close to historic objects in handling sessions or hear an expert talk about what fascinates them. Spark your imagination with bookable art and craft session, or a facilitated workshop with a local artist.'

'The Somerset & Dorset Family History Society has around 1,500 members worldwide. Most of our members are people tracing their family history in one or both of the two counties but we also have members who have joined because they are interested in local history in our area or because they are researching families elsewhere but live locally and appreciate the advantages of having easy access to the expertise of our many experienced volunteers ... If you live in Somerset or Dorset, there is sure to be an SDFHS Group close to you ... The Groups are one of the Society’s greatest strengths as in addition to arranging interesting talks, most hold self-help events, and they are run by very experienced family historians who can help you with your research.'
