We were pleased and privileged this weekend to host the Blokhus Chamber of Commerce team who were here on a study trip of Weymouth, Portland & West Dorset looking at many of the areas fantastic attractions, coastal features and some of the superb eateries we’re lucky enough to enjoy here.

We would gladly host the guys again, they were a great group and very appreciative of everything that was done to make their weekend so memorable.

We were extremely pleased to get such positive feedback about the area from the team and particularly of the activities that they experienced. We’d like to take a moment to thank Weymouth BID Weymouth & Portland Chamber of Commerce and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council for all their work and efforts in organising the weekend, the Blokhus team were all very excited about the whole weekend as they left this morning.

Thanks also to the many businesses and attraction operators that also helped to make this weekend such a success

The team had an absolutely stunning meal at No. 4 on Weymouth harbourside on Friday night, at breakfast on Saturday morning they made us extremely jealous by telling us just how special the food and service had been so well done to the team at No. 4.

Saturday night the team dined at The Stable on Weymouth harbourside and again had another great experience which is another great advert for the area that we work so hard to give our guests and visitors experiences to remember.

Thanks to Jacqui Gisborne for providing transport for the team and for hosting the whole weekend.
