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

A417 NEWS - OBJECTION FROM THE NATIONAL TRUST

The National Trust has objected to the 'Green Bridge' to carry the Cotswold Way over the A417 development. This objection is likely to delay, yet again the resolution to the Missing Link.

Unfortunately, the National Trust has no identifiable email link, (i.e. the objectors are faceless), however, if you feel strongly about this objection from the National Trust, please contact our Ward CDC District Councillor - Cllr Julia Judd, Ermin Ward, Cotswold District Council, 07853 383874

The doctor won't see you yet


  Sir - Some years ago, when I was a rural family doctor, I walked into the waiting room and found my next patient reading the Daily Mail.   I remonstrated with him and suggested that he take both himself and the offending newspaper off the premises. This he duly did and   returned shortly with The Times.

     Despite this, I agreed to see him.

MEETINGS THIS COMING WEEK



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 is not open) ​​​​.

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. 

DID YOU KNOW..........?

.....that the Village possesses a heavy duty petrol strimmer for the use of Villagers, purchased by the Brimpsfield Charitable Trust. If you would like to borrow it please contact Martin Smith - tel 01452 863247.

This year's Show is open to all, whether members of the Society or not, and there is no charge for entering; you can find details of classes, and how to enter, in the Schedule linked from this page.
