Tarrant Keyneston

Latest News

A meeting of the Hall Committee earlier this month brought the news we’re all now familiar with – a large increase in running costs and mainly in the electricity bill. To having a chance of breaking even, it was sadly agreed hire charges for locals and visitors would have to go up by 50% from 1st April. The good news is that hiring the hall will still  be very competitive with other local halls.

Thanks to all involved in running and caring for the Hall and the opportunities that gives to everyone wanting to get together.

I’m happily living at the entrance to the footpath that leads to Crawford Church, just by the weir and looking forward to doing my job – just pop general litter and dog waste bags in and I’ll be emptied every two weeks. I’m being paid for by your Parish Council tax, so please make good use of me!

Don’t think I’ll get too full but if I do, please can you let the Parish Council Clerk, Kate, know at southtarrantvalley@dorset-aptc.gov.uk  \  Mob 07706 490077

Same applies to my friend, who’s up by The Splash at Tarrant Rushton.  Thanks!

Here’s some information from Volunteer Centre Dorset for ways to get involved…. 

‘The plan is that on Monday, 8th May, ‘The Big Help Out’ will give everyone in their community a chance to join in on a national day of volunteering. Everyone across the country is being asked to ‘roll up their sleeves’ and to ‘lend a hand and make a change’.


Volunteer Centre Dorset are planning to approach this campaign from three angles:
1. Support ‘The Big Help Out’ on the 8th May – volunteers can sign up and have a look at the opportunities
2. Asking Dorset residents to ‘make a volunteer pledge’ to ‘Help Out Dorset’ within the coming year
3. To highlight volunteering generally and raise the profile of the good work being done

Contact details are as follows:
Phone: 01305 269214 – Please note our phone will be manned 10:00-17:00 Monday to Thursday until further notice

All Saints Church Tarrant Keyneston

Welcome to the new Tarrant Keyneston village website!

The Parish Council has worked with their website provider, ICL Web Design, with the aim of creating a useful resource for residents of the village and visitors alike. For residents, it gives another way of sharing information on just about anything from general Tarrant Keyneston news and photos to ‘free to a good home’ ads. For visitors to Dorset, it gives the village the chance to share different aspects of their home area from its history to the local business and services.

The Council’s aim is for this to be a sharing website that can become the village’s own – please feel free to get in touch at southtarrantvalley@dorset-aptc.gov.uk.
