BRIDLE PATHS & FOOTPATHS
Over the past two or three years a number of gates have been erected by a local landowner(s) over bridle paths and footpaths impeding and causing inconvenience to walkers and other users including horse riders of these public rights of way.
Villagers and others users are urged to be mindful of the restrictive nature and consequences of these barriers and report any fault, no matter how small, regarding stiles, stock gates, padlocked gates etc.

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..
Have you got yours yet?
NB Eva is currently ordering additional badges of the same size, but with BR (rather than Brimpsfield Resident) as some people would rather not publicise their village of residence

A House was the target of thieves on Tuesday when a garage was entered into and a shed broken into with the locks being smashed. It would appear that nothing has been stolen however, it is a timely reminder to us all to check the security of our properties and to remain vigilant.

Funding Drive - The Village Hall
Brimpsfield Village Hall has in the past two years brought the Community together and the Village Hall Committee, having gained planning permission for a new village hall hopes that it can channel the Village's resources, social and, of course financial, into realising this social and community development. To this end we will be engaging with villagers to quite literally 'buy into' our community asset - the village hall - with various opportunities and events and so, as you come to reflect upon the need to contribute and develop your community with the new year in mind, then please consider supporting this popular project.
