Dorset buildings in line for Puragen Keeping it Local competition gong
4:30pm Tuesday 5th February 2013 in News
No fewer than five south and west Dorset buildings have made it through to the second stage of the Puragen Keeping it Local competition.
The winner will be converted into an eco-friendly, energy efficient facility and they need public votes to help them win the contest.
A total of 11 entrants from across the country have been put forward including the Brackenbury Centre on Portland, which was converted from the old school into a community space and opened to the public last year.
Other buildings in the running include the Southill Community Centre in Weymouth and the Weymouth West Scout Troop and Beavers Club hut in Granby Close.
Also in line is the Storehouse Church in Dorchester as well as the Bridport Scout Group building.
To get through to the second round a nominee had to write 150 words about each building explaining why they deserved to be put forward for the renewable makeover.
The public vote will be running throughout February.
