The Guerrilla Gardeners (GG) are a volunteer group who work in small teams to tackle overgrown areas of the village. The group is supported by the Parish Council in line with our overall aim of improving the appearance of the village. There have been many volunteer groups in the village, but this effort was spearheaded by Councillor Martyn Colvey in 2019 to address the reducing highway and verge maintenance following Dorset Council service cutbacks.

As you can imaging, the Covid-19 lockdown brought a halt to their activity along with everything else. However, some residents undertook tasks in their own area and the initiative has started to re-emerge with great results.

Below, you can find the latest Diary entries from the Guerrillas.
