WELCOME TO BRIMPSFIELD VILLAGE ​AND ITS COMMUNITY


Brimpsfield is a village in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, nestling between Gloucester - (9 miles), Cirencester - (9 miles) and Cheltenham - (7 miles). It prides itself on being a village community (with its own Celtic stone circle) and is inclusive of all, both young and old. There are 84 dwellings in the village with a population of approx 221 and in recent years Brimpsfield has 'grown' by the influx of young families with their children (and animals!) whilst enjoying the support and care of the more established members of the community.  For a fuller history of Brimpsfield please Click here
Close-by is the village of Birdlip and frequently the two communities, (Brimpsfield & Birdlip), come together to share & enjoy events.  There is always something going on, whether an organised community event or a drink at the village Hall's 'Wheelers' bar every Friday evening from 6.30 pm.​​​​.

Advertising space available on this website from as little as £2 per year - contact us.

NEWS ON CHANGES TO OUR RECYCLING FROM MARCH

(The following is from CDC's leaflet with some additional comments in red)


What's happening & when?


More and more people in the Cotswolds are recycling. Now we're making it even easier!

From March 2020 we're improving your recycling collections so you can recycle additional items including textiles and shoes, small electricals, cartons and household batteries.

We'll also be providing you with a new cardboard bag to give you more capacity and a new bin for food waste. You will no longer be able to put food waste in your garden waste bin (if you subscribe to the service).

Food waste must be kept separate and put in your NEW outdoor food waste bin, (watch out for rats), which will be collected each week.

Refuse and recycling collections will remain fortnightly. Here's the catch: Garden waste collections will also switch to fortnightly - so you pay the same, but you get half the service.


Getting ready for the changes


We need your help to make sure your recycling is presented in the right containers.

You will need two recycling boxes, one for paper and the other for glass.

If you only have one box please contact us now so we can get it organised for you. Order online at:

www.cotswold.gov.uk/cotswoldrecycles

Remember to look out for your new containers and information pack which will be delivered separately in February 2020.

Collection days for some residents may change, so please check your information pack for details.
