Wimborne Food Festival this weekend
THERE will be a feast of firsts this weekend as the Wimborne Minster plays a central role in the town's food festival.
Wine-making will be taking place in the church for the first time in its 1,300-year history as expert Keith Bates stages special 'country wine workshops' on Saturday.
And The Rev Vanessa Herrick, the first female rector at Wimborne Minster, thought she had better just check what will be on offer ahead of the event.
"We at the Minister are just delighted to be part of the food festival and particularly to welcome Keith to be part of it with us," she said.

"Wine is a very important part of the Christian faith and we are delighted to host this special workshop and we hope that people will enjoy coming into the Minster and learning how to make it."
And another first this year is the Kids' Kitchen being held in the grounds of the Priest's House Museum and Garden in the High Street. Here Julia Cotton from Julia's Kitchen cookery school will be hosting cupcake decorating and pasta-making workshops for children aged seven to 16.
Museum curator Emma Ayling said she was very happy to be hosting the workshops. "The Priest's House Museum Trust is delighted to be part of Wimborne Food Festival. We are particularly thrilled that for the first time workshops for children will take place in the museum's new Hilda Coles Open Learning Centre. This demonstrates how this new facility has enabled the museum to become more fully integrated into community life."
