We are trying to smarten up Brown’s Lane!
At present, the Parish Council are bidding for a £15,000 grant to make this central point of our village more attractive! From our recent surveys we know that for a lot of residents Brown’s Lane is seen as the centre of our brilliant village with its Shops, Pub, Village Hall and “Stute”. We would like to make it look more welcoming with maybe a couple of benches, shrubs in pots maybe even a historic information board with photos of old Dordon. However, you probably have much better ideas and we would love to hear from you! Please contact us and tell us know your ideas!

Dordon Community Store is moving!
Dordon Community Store has provided an invaluable service to the residents of Dordon through the COVID19 pandemic.
Members of Dordon Parish Council and the lovely volunteers from Dordon Community Store had a really successful socially distanced meeting last night to discuss a permanent home and more custom built space for the shop.
Over the next few weeks the store will be moving into the Village Hall meeting room, which is literally the room next door to where it is at the moment. Racking has generously been donated to kit the room out and the Parish Council will be supporting the shop in making sure they have access to grants and equipment they need to make the venture even more successful.
A team of volunteers from the shop and Parish Council will be working together to make the move happen over the coming weeks.
This will not disrupt the service the shop provides at the moment, and I know the shop are eager to reach even more Dordon residents. Watch this space for further updates!
