We are delighted to have joined the Sturminster Newton Chamber of Commerce.  We join an array of shops, professional service providers, attractions, B&B’s and hotels as well as fantastic places to eat in this Dorset Market Town. We are the only drainage experts in the directory and will be working alongside the other business included to provide the very best drainage solutions, septic tank emptying and gully clearing locally and across Bournemouth and Poole

We look forward to participating fully in all the events and activities organised for next year by this newly formed chamber and getting to know all our fellow traders.

The history of the Sturminster Newton has helped to shape today’s robust community and past residents have included Thomas Hardy and the poet William Barnes. The first fair – permitted by royal charter – was held in Sturminster Newton in 1219. In 1730 the town was decimated by fire but with the help of wealthy local wool merchants it was rebuilt. The railway arrived in 1863 and Sturminster grew in prosperity with the dairy farmers now able to supply milk to both London and Bournemouth. There was also a flourishing livestock market until 1997.

The high street in Sturminster Newton has definitely bucked the trend with lots of independent shops all buzzing with visitors from the nearby villages of Child Okeford, Okeford Fitzpaine, Kings Stag, and slighty further afield from Marnhull, Stalbridge, Shillingstone, Iwerne Minster and Fontmell Magna
