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. The website has been designed to be interactive by allowing you to use the Contact Us page to send us some news, feedback or to ask a question. 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. The Village Notice Board, gives information on notifications that the Parish Council has received and details of activities likely to affect the parish and there is also a link to the Village Facebook Page. Details of Road Closure Notices are also available on the Village Notice board.
EMERGENCIES – contact phone numbers of emergency services and utilities can be accessed by clicking here or from the Village Notice Board page.
SEVERE WEATHER WARNINGS – See Notifications on the Village Notice Board
Dorset Council’s Annual Resident’s Survey
It’s the annual Dorset Council residents’ survey and they want to hear from you – there is also the chance to win a prize of £1000 or one of 3 annual garden waste collection services!
Tell them what you think about where you live and how you feel about Dorset Council. This year there are some extra questions about the impact of COVID-19 and what access you have to the internet.
Your responses will be used to inform improvements to council services. The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete. You can access the survey by clicking here
Virtual Parish Council public meetings
We are now holding virtual Parish Council meetings, the next taking place on Wednesday 4 November using Zoom. Members of the public who are interested in taking part as an observer can request the joining instructions.
The Statutory Annual PC Meeting and the separate Annual Village Meeting have been cancelled for the 2020 PC cycle and rescheduled for the next Council year.
Neighbourhood Plan Consultation
The Regulation 14 consultation has now finished and we would like to thank everyone who completed the questionnaire and commented on the Plan.
The YRIPC NPWorking Group are now reviewing the various results with a view to considering what possible amendments are necessary before the plan is adopted by the Parish Council and submitted for examination.
You can read the read the draft plan and the supporting documents by clicking here.
Lockdown Closure of Sports Club
The tennis court and clubhouse will be closed from 5 November to 3 December. Although we are permitted to exercise during this period , this does not include playing tennis, even between members of the same household
Contact the new team at email@example.com
Parish Councillor Vacancies
We currently have a vacancy so please contact the Clerk if you are interested in becoming a Councillor. We normally meet on the first Wednesday of the month unless otherwise advertised and Councillors also sit on at least one sub-committee.
Community Speed Watch
During the lockdown we will not be able to operate the Speed Watch patrols. There is no doubt that the speed at which vehicles travel through the villages is becoming a great concern, so please consider volunteering to join the team. You will be required to attend a short training session after which you can be part of a patrol as and when you are available. Please use the contact form if you would be interested in joining the team.
The website has been given a face lift and the new format is designed to be more accessible and to be easier to move around in. We value your feedback on the changes – please use the contact us page to give us your view and also to provide details of any changes that you feel are needed and to update information on your clubs, activities and events in the Parish.
