Fly the Stalbridge flag for summer 2017
Stalbright have commissioned a Stalbridge flag based on a Watercolour design by local Stalbridge artist Tony Wood.
We have purchased and mounted 20 of these which are being flown in the town as a celebration of summer on the run up to our Sunday Funday on the 9th July.
This year they have been supplemented in number by Dorset flags and as a phased project we will add more Stalbridge flags each year.
We hope you find that they brighten the town and show someone cares about it because we certainly do.

This Year’s event, built on the success of previous events, was bigger and better than ever. Family entertainment included a 40 ft. inflatable truck assault course, crockery smash, inflatable cash grab and skittle alley courtesy of Stalbridge Scout Group. There were some beautiful classic vehicles on display and the fun dog show was a huge success with classes for the waggiest tail and best fancy dress cartoon character. Throughout the event visitors were catered for with a BBQ, Bar, Pimms tent and homemade teas, and there was a mini festival atmosphere with entertainment on the ‘Spire Stage’. The event was a great success and Stalbright would like to thank everyone who was involved and supported the event. Stalbright will be supporting the next great event in Stalbridge, the annual ‘Soap Box Derby’ hosted by the Stalbridge Hall Fundraising Committee at Stalbridge Hall on Saturday 24th September.
