Welcome to Dorstone's Front Room!

Dorstone’s Front Room is unique.

DFR – as it has come to be known locally – began life in 2008 when the village of Dorstone was informed that we would shortly lose our small rural post office. For Dorstonians, the loss of our post office was a blow. Like many rural communities, the post office was the daytime hub of the village. It served as meeting place, information centre, last minute gift resource, and social glue.

So, we set out to replace what we were losing.  With the help of over twenty-five village volunteers and a number of terrific funding resources DFR has become a key part of our rural life and a unique place to share a taste of what it’s like to live in our beautiful rural community.

Please, drop in and spend some time with us in our village’s Front Room!
