Welcome to Wareham
in the beautiful county of Dorset


Ancient town and former royal borough, the charming market town of Wareham is a veritable delight wherever you look at any time of the year.

Between the rivers Frome and Piddle, the attractive gateway to the Isle of Purbeck was a major port until the Middle Ages.

Now a thriving market town, happily combining the old and the new for locals and visitors alike.

Statement of persons nominated Wareham Town Council



It is with great sadness that we announce the death of a very respected and much loved friend and Councillor, Eric Llewellyn Osmond who passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon.

Eric, known fondly as “Mr Wareham in Bloom” by his fellow councillors was co-opted onto Wareham Town Council in January 1991 and has served faithfully for the past 28 years.  During his time, he has served on the majority of Town Council committees and was Chair of Wareham in Bloom for many years achieving great honours for the Town in this regard.  Eric was elected to Purbeck District Council in May 2003 and served for 12 years in that role.  He was Chairman of the Council for three years from 2010 – 2013.  He was awarded the M.B.E. in the 2013 New Years Honours List for services to local government and in particular for his work for and chairmanship of Wareham in Bloom. Eric was Mayor of Wareham Town Council for the years 1995 and 1996 and again in 2010.

I am sure you will all wish to join us in sending our deepest sympathy to his wife Renata and his family at this sad time.

Mayor, Councillors and the Staff of Wareham Town Council.

The Town Council Offices will be closed on Tuesday 21st May 2019 as a mark of respect for the funeral of Councillor Eric Osmond MBE.
