Annette Brooke, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole, was pleased to welcome a range of fantastic food and drink producers and culture and tourism representatives to ‘Dorset Day’ in the Houses of Parliament on 12 November. Annette, who hosted the day with other Dorset MPs Conor Burns, Tobias Ellwood, Richard Drax, Oliver Letwin and Robert Walter, was delighted that the event had been such a resounding success.
The event was hugely popular, with hundreds of MPs, peers and parliamentary staff learning about just how much Dorset has to offer. The produce showcased was of an exceptional quality, and visitors to the day were able to sample delicious treats while seeing the best of what the county had to offer in terms of tourism and the natural environment. All went extremely smoothly, apart from an evacuation of the premises following a potential security breach.
After the event, Annette said: “The day was such a huge success and I was so pleased to show off just how wonderful Dorset is. Everybody worked so hard and made the event really special. I was really proud to be part of the day.”
