Diamond year for Broadstone Art Society
BROADSTONE Art Society has had several different names and meeting places during its 60-year history.
Originally called Corfe Mullen Art Club, the society was founded in 1953 by Peter Dunn a local bank manager and governor of Lockyers School.
The school became the venue for the club's annual exhibition, but when the society moved to the Liberal Hall in Broadstone it was renamed The Corfe Mullen and Broadstone Art Club.
For 20 years, its home was Broadstone Community and Arts Centre in Dunyeats Rd, and it was renamed the Broadstone Art Society.

When the partnership with the centre ceased the club returned to Corfe Mullen and established themselves in the Scouts building.
The society now uses Youth Club building in Broadstone for its exhibitions.
It is so successful that there is a waiting list for those wishing to join.
The summer exhibition runs from Sunday 25th until Saturday 31st of August at the Youth Centre Moor Road Broadstone BH18 8ZA, 10am – 6pm, admission free.
