Meet Alistair Chisholm

Dorchester's very own ambassador

Alistair is an experienced tour manager and guide. His relaxed and entertaining style will take you effortlessly around Dorchester and through the countryside of Thomas Hardy.

His enthusiasm for Dorchester has also been the motivation for spare time activities. Alistair has been President of the Chamber of Commerce, Tourism and Industry for 2006-2009 and has been instrumental in setting up a Business Improvement District in Dorchester.

He is also a member of the Town Promotion Group and helped the group setting up Dorchester’s fantastic new skate park.

Alistair is a member of the New Hardy Players and is an active member of Stop the Drop and fervent litter-picker-upper in Dorchester.

In 2008 to 2009 he was ‘Mayoress’ of Dorchester (his partner Kate was Mayor) – or Mayor’s Escort to use the correct but rather dodgy-sounding title!

Alistair Chisholm has been the Town Crier of Dorchester since 1997 and has been National Champion Town Crier seven times.
