Community Council Website

  Welcome to Overton on Dee

overton shield

Edited by Overton on Dee Community Council, this website contains a large and expanding amount of information that we feel is relevant to Overton on Dee and the surrounding area, from doctors and businesses, to places to walk; nearby attractions to the areas ancient history; eating and drinking to parking and living, and plenty more besides. Although a conservation village, Overton on Dee with around 700 residences is very much a modern and forward thinking, caring community led by a hugely proactive Community Council.

We are proud of the beauty and diversity of architecture and scenery our village offers. The website will give you an introduction that we hope will encourage you to want to visit. We are twinned with La Murette in France and open our homes to competitors attending the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. You too are assured of a warm welcome.

We have a monthly What’s on Guide and the Oracle newsletter to cover forthcoming events and comments on prior proceedings. We hope you find it easy to use, useful, informative and just occasionally, entertaining.

We hold an annual Village Fete, on the last Saturday in June each year.  All the information you need on is located on our Village Fete page
