Control of Dogs
We have seen an unacceptable increase in incidents of dog fouling over the last few months. Dog owners are reminded of their responsibility in clearing up after their dogs, even when on the sports pitch which is used by many children for informal play. We can all report dog fouling on the Dorset For You website by clicking here . Doing this will alert the authority to the problem which will trigger more frequent visits from the Dog Warden.
Yetminster Community Sports Club
The Club has a busy calendar (see the entry in the Amenity pages for details) and is also home to Yetminster United who would welcome your support
The tennis court is available for members to make bookings, the croquet club is meeting (socially distanced on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and the club is open. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Parish Council plays an important role in the life of the community . We normally meet on the last Wednesday of the month unless otherwise advertised and Councillors also sit on at least one sub-committee. You can contact the Parish Council through the Clerk – Ms J Hole email@example.com / 01963 23254 – or use the Contact Form by clicking here
Please note that the November meeting will start at 7.00 pm so that we can accommodate a presentation by BusBack who are considering starting a bus service to the village. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
Community Speed Watch
The Speed Watch patrols will shortly become operational. 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 to register your interest in joining the team.
This is continually updated and we are keen to keep this up to date and ask you to use the contact us page to give us information on your clubs, activities and events in the Parish.
