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.

Consultation on Dogs in Public Spaces

Dorset Council is carrying out a 12-week public consultation on rules about dogs in public spaces This will help with the development of the new Dorset-wide Dog-related Public Spaces Protection Order.

The survey runs from the 24th January 2020 to the 19th April 2020 and you can take the survey here – Take the Survey.

        Further information on how to report incidents of dog fouling is available on the Village Notice Board pages   

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.


We endeavour to keep the website up to date and relevant to the community. Please use the contact us page to provide your feedback on any changes that you feel are needed and to update information on your clubs, activities and events in the Parish.
