Martinstown village notices

martinstown open gardens logoMARTINSTOWN OPEN GARDENS WEEKEND 
22nd & 23rd June 2019

Next summer is Open Gardens year for the village. The biannual fund raiser needs your support to be a success.

Most important it needs your garden to be open for visitors. Big or small not the issue, numbers count to make the event work so please consider allowing your garden to be open.

Never done it before? Worried about the issues? The VILLAGE HALL committee members will answer any questions that you might have.

We need lots of open gardens - can you help the cause?

Martinstown are Winners of Dorset Best Village 2018 - Large Village, Previous Winners category

village winners

At the presentation evening this week for Dorset Best Village 2018 organised by Dorset Community Action, sponsored by Magna Housing and supported by Dorset Echo, Martinstown was the winner in the category of Large Village - Previous Winner (i.e. there is a category for villages that have been previous winners so that the same village can’t win every time).

The Dorset Echo reports that: “Judges travelled more than 900 miles across Dorset this summer as they inspected villages taking part. While looking out for well-kept greens and finger posts, tidy churchyards and rubbish-free playgrounds, they also note the work going on in communities behind the scenes to look after their villages.”

ask ned

Dorset Police ask; "could your
enquiry be answered by NED?"


Do you have issues with parking? Noisy neighbours? Concerned with an animal’s welfare? Not sure who to contact… Then AskNED – the non-emergency directory.

Dorset Police has launched a new online knowledgebase designed to help the public find answers to common enquiries and guide them to the right agencies.

AskNED offers help and advice around a whole host of topics such as civil matters including landlord and tenant disputes, as well as criminal matters including burglary and assault. AskNED provides advice and information about what you should do and who can help.

The online service is quick and easy to use. It is an alphabetical list of topics the police commonly receive enquiries about, along with details of the agencies who can help you.

Head of Contact Management for Dorset Police, Superintendent Steve Lyne said: “Ask NED is a useful resource for the public, providing information on topics we are most commonly asked about.

“It is an alphabetical list of topics that hold information and signposting details for that subject.
“Ultimately, I hope that AskNED will assist the public with questions they may have and divert people away from the 101 non-emergency number which will in turn provide further improvements to our service.”

To access the AskNED knowledgebase visit www.dorset.police.uk/askNED. Remember, it is quicker and easier to report online, however the 101 non-emergency service is available should you wish to speak to someone. If a crime is in progress or life in danger always dial 999.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
