“Esme Butler’s Blandford”

Esme Butler who died in 2017 was a native and well loved and respected lifelong resident of Blandford.

Working with many local organisations she was also a Councillor and four times Town Mayor.

Throughout her life she supported local artists and amassed a collection of pictures and artefacts she particularly liked related to Blandford.

We hope to display just a small selection from her collection showing what Esme found best represented her home town.
