MEETINGS THIS COMING WEEK


Parish Council Meeting - Tuesday 26th January - 7.30 pm via Zoom​


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. 

​​​THE BRIMPSFIELD VILLAGE BAR, (Wheelers)  is planning to open every other Friday from 6.30 pm until 10 pm.

In light of the forthcoming 'Lockdown measures', the bar will not be open until further notice.

There are some restrictions regarding social distancing and you are welcome to come and enjoy good company and sample a Baileys or Mulled Wine.

Free internet - wi-fi access available​
(Donations towards the wi-fi are welcome, but not compulsory)



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) ​​​​.

Please see the attached letter for information regarding the upcoming resurfacing of Climperwell Road, Brimpsfield.
