Village events in the next few weeks are highlighted above. Choose 'Diary' in the menu (left) for more details, where available, and other (known) events in the future. Remember that many venues - especially local churches - have regular events such as coffee mornings which won't necessarily be listed here: see the various links elsewhere on this web site. To place entry here or in the Diary, please contact as below.

The West Moors Parish Plan was drawn up in 2007: after its publication, a Local Action Group was formed in order to promote the items it covered: a pdf copy of the plan can be downloaded from the Dorset-for-you site . . . HERE
For a 'tour' through the village, take this link for the " Village Trail "
. . . and linked from that document there is now a companion " Nature Trail " which attempts to describe the variety of natural habitats - many accessible to the public - which are all around us & for which we all have a responsibility.
