  • Wimborne's Town Crier braves the heat to announce that the town has again won the 'Small Town' category in the Southern England in Bloom competition – Wimborne in Bloom
  • The long dry spell experienced this summer leaves the ground parched – as seen here beside the cliff top coast path at Kimmeridge, Clavel Tower in the distance
  • One of the treats of summertime – watching the sun set whilst still basking in the warmth left from earlier in the day, here at Badbury Rings
  • Pigs applying full sunblock – in the form of cool mud – to survive the sun, roaming freely on a farm near the disused WWII Tarrant Rushton airfield
  • Cyclists taking part in a 'Hardy Ride' also enjoying the sun, resting for lunch at Wareham during a mass ride around Dorset
