VILLAGE HALL and PLAYING FIELD PROJECT
Focus, at the moment, is on the Changing Room block as we hope to undertake its refurbishment during the gap between football seasons. We are currently trying to reconcile our budget with the tenders received and will probably have to reduce our ambitions whilst still achieving a significant improvement in the facilities.
We look forward to continuing support from the village and from hall and playing field users – particularly when the fund raising starts!
The Black Dog - UPDATE
As you will know The Black Dog is now open - don't forget, as with any other business, "Use it or loose it"
Community Speed Watch
A small group of volunteers have already started checking vehile speeds through the village.
More volunteers would be helpful and if you want to know more please contact Cllr. David Eaglestone.
FREE! Home Safety Check
Prevention is always better than cure and the Dorset Fire and Rescue Service (DFRS) are very keen on prevention.
Without any charge they will visit your house for a Home Safety Check and will help you to recognise the risks in your home and how to reduce or prevent them. They will help with an escape plan and will leave you with working fire alarms, which may well include fitting alarms free of charge.
BE SAFE – call now to arrange a free visit – 0800 038 2323
Think about your neighbours and friends, are they vulnerable, are they likely to be at risk, are they prepared?
Have a word with them suggest a call from the Home Safety Check Team.
One step further
– Wouldn’t it be great to have people actually in our midst watching out for the vulnerable and helping to keep them safe. That could easily be you. In 2-3 hours DFRS will train you to be part of their Safer Homes for Dorset programme so that you can make a valuable contribution to the safety and wellbeing of your community.
