Dorset Police, who supported Bourne Free and provided the traffic management element of the parade for many years were unable to continue this service in 2014.  Since 2014 we employed an accredited traffic management company who now provide this service.  This is an additional cost to the charity so any donations towards this are welcome from entrants.
