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 Board, which enables villagers to post information relating to the village, can also be accessed from the Community Forum Pages Details of Road Closure Notices are now available by clicking the highlighted text or the link below.

UPDATE FROM WESSEX WATER
Wessex Water has achieved its target and remains on schedule, with work now reaching the driveway of Farthings Cottage .
Over the next Fortnight excavation will continue for approximately 20 metres, at which point there will be a strategic pause in mains excavation while the new main is tested and chlorinated the new main. Wessex Water has chosen to do this at this point as they are now clear of Yetminster hence there should be less inconvenience. Also this will mean that apart from the final connections at the end of the project which will require traffic management but not a road closure, this should complete our work in the Yetminster.
The sample result of the test on the new main will take a week to return after which, starting with the end cottages the new main will be livened and started to transfer to the house services to it.
Wessex Water will be excavating these service holes in the week they are waiting for the sample result.
The next phase of this project will then take place between Farthings Cottage and Rylands Cottage. This will take us up to 22/12/2017.
Again to achieve this target, the team will be working regular weekends.
At this point we look to re open the road for the Christmas period for all to enjoy their Christmas.
At any point our team on site will be happy to answer any questions or feel free to contact Andy Cockram on 07900137392.
With the exception of the Christmas period, all vehicles will be prohibited from proceeding along RYME ROAD, YETMINSTER from the junction with Melbury Road, Yetminster to the junction of Common Lane, Ryme Intrinseca for the installation of a new water main
Work will commence on 9 October 2017 and continue until 30 March 2018 and the alternative route will direct vehicles further along the A37 and to Yetminster via Cuckoo Hill.
