Briantspuddle is the central village containing all the public amenities of the Parish of Affpuddle and Turnerspuddle. Sponsored by the Parish Council, this website has been built and is managed by voluntary resident effort on behalf of the Council for the benefit of the community and to enable all to be aware of a small part of the stunning County of Dorset.
If you have received one of these through the post from “Jane” then treat it with some caution. Several people in the village believe it to be a scam. In any case trusting people you may not know to give or request the sort of information this app purports to enable is simply not a wise thing to do.
Of course if anyone knows better please advise through the contact page.
The Moreton Fund, otherwise known as “Frampton’s Charity” provides funding for young people with education or training needs resident in the parishes of Moreton, Affpuddle, Briantspuddle and Turnerspuddle. Funding can help with training equipment, books, travel expenses or general maintenance. Awards of up to £500 are usually made and two were made last year in the Affpuddle area – for more information read the news page .
