There is a Facebook Support Group ‘Bridport Coronavirus Community Support (not for profit)’ which has details of various support available and being offered including people in the locality that will collect items you need.

Welcome to the Allington Parish website. The purpose of this site is to publicise the work of your Parish Council with the aim of encouraging involvement and therefore local democracy. Parish and town councils are the grass-roots of local government. They are local authorities and although they have a limited number of statutory duties, they do, have wide powers, should they decide to use them and they may, with agreement of the District or County Council, exercise certain functions normally carried out by those councils. By becoming involved the local community can directly affect how these powers are implemented.
We encourage the people of Allington to attend Council Meetings as observers and we are obliged to organise at least one parish meeting a year to which all local electors are invited to attend and may raise issues of local concern. If you have any queries, observations or suggestions about your local area, please use the contact form which will be sent directly to the Parish Clerk, Mrs Amy Stephenson.

About Allington

Allington has been a small hamlet since the 1200s it is bordered now by Symondsbury, Bridport, Bradpole and Dottery parishes. In recent years Allington has seen the advent of several new developments at each end of the parish. Whilst these new buildings do not overshadow the historic buildings of Allington. The Pack Bridge at Pymore, the historic church St. Saviour’s Dottery with its ancient iron roof. 15 footpaths go through Allington, and we have Allington Hill a local landmark where in 1262 Sir William De Legh paid one old penny for every corpse with leprosy to be buried within Bridport Cemetery.

The B3162 goes through part of Allington as well as the old A35. The River Simene is part of our parish. We have a farm shop which is licensed, Washingpool Farm on the B3162 selling local produce. Bridport Community Hospital is in Allington this hospital built on the site of the old Isolation Hospital had the topping out ceremony held when Cllr. Lathey was Mayor of Bridport.
