Moves to create a pan-Dorset network of chambers of commerce to fight the county's corner have been boosted by a new member.
Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) has been leading the drive to unite business groups to give them a stronger voice locally, regionally and nationally.
Now DCCI has welcomed Dorchester Chamber of Commerce as the third town chamber to become affiliated - following hot on the heels of Broadstone and Weymouth and Portland.
The partnership aim to bring together business groups in the area to give them a stronger voice locally, regionally and nationally.
The network of chambers can be far stronger and far more cohesive than it has been. DCCI has the opportunity and the responsibility to start to bring chambers together for the whole of the county.

Police in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and a dog owner to come forward after a teenager sustained an injury from a dog bite in the town centre.
The incident happened at around 2.30pm on Saturday 11 April 2015 on Kings Street, opposite the train station’s car park entrance.
The victim, a 15-year-old local boy, was with a group of friends riding his skateboard when a dog, described as a black and white collie or similar, bit his leg.
As a result of the bite, the victim was treated in hospital for puncture wounds to his lower leg.
The man walking with the dog is described as white, in his fifties and with grey balding hair. He did not stop after the incident but walked on with the dog.
I am hoping that somebody who was in the town centre on Saturday afternoon may of witnessed the incident. I am appealing to these people, and anyone who has relevant information, to please get in contact.
I would also urge the owner of the collie to get in contact with me so that I can speak with him to determine the circumstances of this incident. All calls will be treated in strict confidence.
