Alternative Broadband Services

Be advised that BT is now offering BT Infinity for Stourpaine. Five years on!

It has a 25% Welcome Discount, which I have checked applies even if you have “Unlimited Broadband” (not fibre) already.


We do have an alternative using wessexinternet (wireless):
wessexinternet offer VoIP (Vonage Phone), which could replace your BT (or other) landline.

The choice (at last) is there but you should consider, upload and download speeds, latency, tied services (Landline, current email provider) against the cost (or saving) for each service.

Dorset Police Alert – Theft of saddles Marnhull

Good afternoon,

We are very sad to report that after a very quiet period over the summer, we have had a particularly bad weekend where multiple properties have reported issues with outbuilding breaks.

This has been throughout North Dorset and surrounding areas.

The theft of saddles has occurred in the Marnhull area where bridles, breast plates and martingales were stolen from a padlocked tack room. The padlock was levered from the tack room door. Unfortunately, none of the items were security marked.
Another theft of note have been Motcombe where petrol tools have been taken from a shed next to a stable.

Please can we ask people to think about the security of your items.

We will be holding a Tack Marking Event at Paddock Pantry in Sturminster Newton on October 22nd from 10 until 2 where security advice will be available.
If you have a large amount of tack, we are always happy to come to you at a convenient time.

If you have any information, please contact us on 101 or via the website at occurrence number 55160133376
You can also follow us on facebook – North Dorset Neighbourhood Policing Team or Dorset Horsewatch
