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
Virtual Parish Council public meetings
We are now holding virtual Parish Council meetings, the next taking place on Wednesday 12 September 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 – We want to hear from you!
After all the hard work that has been done we now need to make sure that the plan is right as it describes the vision for our villages for the ensuing 16 years and will have a lasting impact for decades beyond that. We are consulting on the plan during the 6 weeks from Monday September 7th to Friday 19th October and this is an important opportunity for you to read the plan and tell us what you think about it. Details on the consultation and how you can read the plan and the supporting documents can be found here.
YOUR VIEWS ARE IMPORTANT AND MATTER!

Parish Councillor Vacancies
Please contact the Clerk if you are interested in becoming a Councillor and to see if we have a vacancy. 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
The Speed Watch team have been very effective in encouraging motorists to drive more considerately through the village. However, a lack of volunteers is limiting the number of patrols that can be made. 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.
