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..

NB - Owners' names are not be displayed
There has been a change in the way the Police communicate with the local community, with the old system, Watchword, being discontinued on the 1st February. It has been replaced by a new system, Community Alerts which you are able to register on directly. This has 2 advantages:
1) - you will get the emails immediately they are generated by the Police rather than when I am next at my computer as was the case with Watchword
2) you are able to tailor the type of messages you would like to receive
If you would like to continue to receive these notifications, you need to follow the link and register yourself. Once you have registered select Brimpsfield as your scheme.
Your Community Alerts :: Home
For information, our Police & Crime Commissioner has decided that he wishes to continue with the PCSO scheme. This means that Andrea Strutt remains our local PCSO.
If there is a real emergency then telephone 999
