THE search is on for Dorset’s best village 2013.

The competition is run by Dorset Community Action, sponsored by Magna Housing, and organisers are looking to encourage even more communities to take part this year.

Any organisation can enter its community – the village hall committee, school, youth club, scout or guide group.

Two special entry categories will run for a fourth year – The People’s Project for the village judged to have entered the best project involving local active people and Best Environment for the village judged to be most green. Deadline for entries is 5pm on Monday April 8.
