  • NEW NOTICEBOARD IN CLAPPS MEAD PLAYING FIELD ADJACENT TO MILL LANE

    The Chideock & Seatown Community Website has funded a new Noticeboard which has been placed in the playing field adjacent to Mill Lane.   At the moment we have decided to keep it locked as this is a ‘magnetic’ board and this time of year posters from outside of the village appear to be stapled-gunned onto boards.  If anyone would like to put up a poster please either email it to me and I will print it off and display it or drop it through my letterbox at The Farmers Arms, Mill Lane.  This community website makes a little profit from advertisers on the website and to date donations have been made to several village groups and local good causes. Many thanks to Lee Martin for his excellent craftmanship.
