Planting projects in the village
The PC will be planting 2 new Silver Birch Trees on the Green as one has already died and the other is rotten.

The grassed verge on Dorchester Road is to be planted with wildflowers this season, it may look a little untidy for a while after the ground is prepared but it will be lovely to see the wildflowers growing year on year in this area.

The Parish Council met on the 4th March 21 via zoom, draft minutes can be found on the Parish Council website. The next meeting will be Annual Parish Council meeting on 6th May via zoom. We hope to move to face to face meetings again as soon as the social distance rules allow.

Later this year the Parish Council will be considering a Community Governance Review organised by Dorset Council, the community will be consulted on this review which can consider parish boundaries, numbers of Councillors in office, forming of parish councils and forming grouped parish councils. More information to follow.

We currently have vacant plots at the allotments, please contact the Clerk for more information.
