Dorset was classed as part of the HantsFurs region almost as soon as the fledgling group began to be more than just an email exchange between Southampton residents, due mainly to Bournemouth’s close proximity. The large city’s substantial sandy beach and aquarium historically made it host to popular summer parties each year, while the city centre hosted frequent cafe based furmeets in the evenings.

More recently, a Weymouth based furmeet group was able to organise a wide variety of activities and trips to local sights, although subsequently on an extended hiatus. Rumours often rise of another new group or meet venue in the area, what will come next for the county?
