The Osmington White Horse is currently looking rather faded; whilst this is somewhat normal for this time of year, it has been exacerbated by Dorset Council not spraying to remove weeds etc. due to Covid-19 pressures.

It will be sprayed in April ’21 – the exact date is weather dependent as the wind and thermal conditions need to be optimum but from the 5th – and the plan is to perform another spray in September.

In the meantime, there are discussions ongoing with relevant parties to ensure that regular maintenance and funding is put in place to ensure the efforts of the restoration project aren’t lost.
