A KIND OFFER
A villager whose mother's eyesight is not so good but can read large print books scanned in "Any Fool Can Be A Villager" A5 pages and printed it on A4 paper which easily made a large print version. She was thrilled!
It made him wonder if we have a villager who wants to read something but needs it in large print?
If that is the case, please Contact us and we will sort something out.

2. Which letter is silent in the word "Scent," the S or the C?
3. Do twins ever realise that at least one of them is unplanned?
4. Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn't it be called double V?
5. Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and It just takes 75-100 years to fully work.
6. Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty.

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.

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) .
