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. (With the current Corona Virus situation, the bar open on a fortnightly basis) .
Advertising space available on this website from as little as £2 per year - contact us.

Police have been made aware".

A Good Houseworker
Upon recommendation there is " a brilliant lady who does 3 hours of housework a week for me and visits 4 households in Brimpsfield already. She now has a spare 2 hours on a Wednesday morning from 8.30am – 10.30am.
She is thorough and a good worker, will turn her hand to anything that needs doing, and she irons beautifully too. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She charges £12.50 an hour."
Anyone can contact me, Karen Clark, Castle House, if they want any more information, by email or my mobile – 07785 302469
Snow in Brimpsfield.
A plea to dog-walkers in the village to clear up after their dogs - something that should always be done, but particularly at this time when young families are out walking and taking exercise and when we all need to heighten our hygiene standards in general. There is no excuse for not clearing up as the Parish Council has provided sufficient dog bins that are regularly emptied.
Now this is a VERY clever dog. To see just how clever,
The Police have been building up their coffers by targetting motorist yet again - Do be watchful of these Police cash-making traps
