Welcome to the Mosterton Parish Council Website

Mosterton Parish Council works in the interests of the village’s residents and to maintain and improve its rural heritage and its amenities, working in partnership with other groups, including the Village Hall Committee, Parochial Church Council, primary school, pre-school, the Admiral Hood pub and various village-centred activity groups.

The Parish Council also works closely with Dorset Council and its local Member and is well-supported by the Dorset Association of Parish and Town Councils. It leases a small allotments area of just 17 plots and owns the Village Green and the play park, including the field, the children’s play features and the exercise equipment.

The Village Green is a well-used and attractive village feature, bounded on one side by the River Axe. It is host to a variety of events each year, including the annual Bands on the Green event in late July featuring a range of musical genres.
