Dorchester Streets Alive – 22nd September 

This Friday is International Car Free Day, and Dorchester is hosting a ‘Streets Alive!’ event to celebrate.  There will be a festival with stalls, music, activities, and demonstrations in the car park in the afternoon from 12.00-17.00. It will promote healthy living and eating, as well as sustainable transport and cleaner air. DCE have supported the event via the Community Fund and will have a stall there.
