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..
Advertising space available on this website from as little as £2 per year - contact us.
A REMINDER OF THE ROAD CLOSURE
The road between Backlains and Birdlip will be closed for 11 days (Tuesday 26th May until Friday 5th June).
It is always gratifying to receive contributions to the website from villagers and these are particularly welcome at this time when we all need cheering up, but without removing the underlying seriousness of the current situation.
GREEN BIN COLLECTIONS & PHASED REOPENING OF HOUSEHOLD RECYCLING CENTRES
Cotswold District Council has announced that fortnightly garden waste collections will restart from Wednesday 13 May.
Collections will be operating to the published collection schedule (see calendar);
The service is available to all customers who hold 2019/20 garden waste licence(s)
We will only collect what is in the CDC garden waste bins and bags
No side waste will be accepted;
Crew safety means we cannot collect significantly overloaded bins;
There will be no additional or catch-ups for collections;
Existing licences have been extended and we will process renewals in June
Cllr Doherty, added: “We are anticipating a risk that we may not always be able to collect from all properties on their scheduled day. In these circumstances, we advise residents to leave their bins presented until they have been emptied, which should be the next day.”

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.
