Dorstone Dawdle

The Dorstone Dawdle is back – we hope.

We plan to hold the Dawdle and Fun Run this year on Sunday 5th September at 11am.

This date should give us the best chance of restrictions being lifted sufficiently to go ahead, albeit with some changes to make sure we keep everyone safe.

At last – a date to put in your diary for re-starting village life! Keep watching for updates over the next few months as we watch and wait.

When we are certain we can proceed, entries will be in advance and online only


In conjunction with Central and Local Government, Dorstone Parish Council, Dorstone's Frontroom and The Pandy Inn are working together to enhance the resilience of our community during these uncertain times. This page draws together the online resources current available. We will be updating the page as new information becomes available.
