Welcome

This website aims to become a source of information for both the local community and those planning to visit or actually visiting this fantastic part of Dorset. We really need the local community to become involved by sending us news of forthcoming events, reports on recent events and photographs. In particular we would like to populate the Calendar with the dates of every activity which is going on within the Parish. The website has been designed to be more interactive by allowing you to use the Contact Us  page to send us some news, feedback or to ask a question or if you require an entry placed on the Calendar. The editor of the website will respond to the messages you leave or add your information. There is also an opportunity for you to join our e-mailing list through the contact us section. If you do so we will email you a copy of the Parish Council minutes together with any other information that we feel may be of interest. A very important section of this website is devoted to the development of the Neighbourhood Plan (Y&RINP) (NB: the Parish Plan has moved to the Parish Council pages) and is where information relating to this can be viewed. Additionally you can also access the Community Forum where you can read discussions, and leave comments, with regard to village issues. The Village Notice Boardwhich enables villagers to post information relating to the village, can also be accessed from the Community Forum Pages. Details of Road Closure Notices are also available on the notice board page.

EMERGENCIES – contact phone numbers of emergency services and utilities can be accessed by clicking here or from the notice board page.

POLICE NOTIFICATION

Sherborne Neighbourhood Policing Team has received reports of “Nottingham Knockers” in the Yetminster Area.

Nottingham Knockers will knock on your door trying to sell numerous household items to you. They will sometimes show you a form of ID however this will be bogus. They have often been known to produce a card saying they are deaf/dumb/just out of prison and working towards a better life for themselves but need your help to do so etc.

Please be aware this is a scam and the knockers try their best to get you to part with some money to “help” them. Please do not engage in conversation with these callers. Tell them you are not interested and do not invite them into your home.

Should any visit you and you have any concerns please contact Dorset Police with a full description and vehicle number plate details.

REMEMBER if cold callers don’t get any sales in your are, they are less likely to return.
