Did you know that it's possible to have coronavirus, but not have symptoms? It’s known as asymptomatic infection and you can still pass it on to people for whom it could prove very serious. This is why following government advice is critically important.
Several residents have offered to do shopping or collect prescriptions for those unable to get out in these difficult times. Email us at email@example.com and we will put you in touch. Or use the phone numbers here for more help and advice.

In 1906 Sir Frederick Treves born in Dorchester wrote that it was "the most charming village in these Western backwoods".

Enjoy a stroll through our pretty village with an abundance of thatched cottages and attractive houses, the historic church, the delightful splash and you'll feel you've stepped back in time.
