A Place to be Real Together

Meet Us at Othona


A Place to be Real Together

Visitors, vollies, core, committee, facilitators (and some roles that are hard to define!) make up our community at Othona West Dorset.

And over time, it's not unusual for people to go from visitor to vollie, from facilitator to visitor, from core to committee, from vollie to core...and more!

As we say at the start of our events, those who have gathered, for the time we are together, ARE the Othona West Dorset community. We will share the joys and challenges of creating community.

We hope that our website gives you a flavour of what you might experience by visiting Othona - and an introduction to people you are likely to meet!

Below are a few links which you might find helpful...

Our Team

Our team is a made up of people who give of themselves in a wide variety of ways in terms of skills, of roles, of time, and even of location! You can learn a bit about them on Our Team page.

Photos and Videos

As the saying goes, a picture can paint a thousand words. We love to capture Othona's events and activities (and the spirit of these) as much as possible. Visit our See & Hear page to...get a picture of us! :-D 


Do visit our Blog on this site. It's a new adventure for us. It's quite small right now but we look forward to our team being able to share thoughts, ideas and experiences about things that we feel are important, interesting...or just plain fun! :-D

Social Media

Othona West Dorset has a page and a public group on Facebook.

The page is where OWD (Othona West Dorset) can keep people up to date with events and activities here.

The group is where anyone who would like to can share thoughts, photos or videos and keep in touch with OWD's community  - especially when you aren't physically with us.

Visit the group to meet some of our community. You are very welcome to join and share too!

We can also find us on Twitter, YouTube - and we've just joined Instagram!
