Queen Thorne Parish Council
New Exercise Equipment at Nether Compton Recreation Ground
Everyone in Queen Thorne is warmly invited to use the newly installed, free exercise equipment on Nether Compton Recreation Ground. With the football pitch, tennis equipment and children's play area, Nether Compton now offers facilities for all ages to keep fit and have fun outside. You can even make a cup of tea in the hut.
Restored Fingerposts throughout Queen Thorne
Over the past months Councillor Clive Yendole has been a man on a mission to restore the dilapidated fingerposts of Trent, Sandford Orcas, Nether and Over Compton to their former glory. Fingerposts are a characteristic feature of the Dorset countryside, but unfortunately the County Council no longer has a remit to repair them, which is why so many are in such a sorry state. The Parish Council is very grateful to Cllr Yendole for volunteering to carry out the renovations across Queen Thorne, meaning that the Parish Council has only had to pay for materials.
