FRIDAY May 28, 2021 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Dorset Echo – when the first edition of the Dorset Daily Echo and Weymouth Dispatch was created.

We are inviting our readers to celebrate our anniversary with us and during the week commencing May 24, we will be running various promotions in the Dorset Echo throughout the week.

As part of the celebrations we have created a special limited edition 64-page nostalgia magazine to celebrate 100 years at the heart of the local community, bringing our readers trusted local news.

Join us as we look back at the Dorset Echo, recall major local, national and international news, take a photographic tour through the local area and community during this time.
