The Glebe Play Area

Regretfully, the children’s play area due to re-open 21 July 2020, has to remain closed for the foreseeable future. The council carried out an interim inspection of the play area and equipment for play arrangements under Covid-19 restriction lifting, but discovered that items of equipment were not safe for use in play. Maintenance of the equipment is currently being determined. Please check the parish website (News & Announcements page) for updates on this current situation.

How Dorset Council will spend £9.1m on fixing roads, preventing potholes and upgrading highways

Posted 2 June 2020

The new NHS Test and Trace system launched yesterday, (28 May) across England, and Public Health Dorset is encouraging any residents with symptoms of coronavirus to use the service.

NHS Test and Trace will identify those who have had close contact with people who have tested positive for coronavirus, helping to reduce the spread of the virus and save lives. Alongside continuing effective social distancing, the NHS Test and Trace service will be key for us to contain local cases and prevent a second peak in infections.The instruction is clear: if people have symptoms of coronavirus, they need to self-isolate, get tested and share their contacts with NHS Test and Trace.

We’re grateful for the role our communities have played so far in following the rules and limiting the spread of COVID-19 in Dorset, so we’re urging local people to keep this up by using this new service and following any advice they are given.

Nuisance Calls

Nuisance calls remain a source of annoyance and frustration for many; and for some they can cause anxiety or involve scams and fraud.

OFCOM, the communications regulator, has hard copies of a short guide that you can obtain as a consumer experiencing problems with such calls. The guide is in an ‘Easy Read’ format, which presents information clearly and simply, using pictures to support the meaning of the text. 

This guide has information on the different types of nuisance call, tips for reducing such calls, and on how to complain about them. You can see a copy of the guide here:

You can find further advice for consumers on nuisance calls on OFCOM’s website:, including a short educational video guide, which is available in subtitles to help people with hearing impairments.
