The new website will be different and some things will be better whilst others not quite so good. As with all things, please bear with us during the transition phase and please feel free to contact us with any comments or suggestions for the new website.
By way of a reminder, the website is funded exclusively by the Garden Society and The Village Hall Committee with some (small) income from the occasional advertisement.

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 94 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.
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 currently closed utfn in line with national guidelines).

A plea to dog-walkers in the village, (as well as visitors to the village), to CLEAR UP AFTER THEIR DOGS - something that should always be done, but particularly at this time when more people 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 after your dog; the Parish Council has provided sufficient dog bins in and around the village that are regularly emptied.
Thanks to Martin Smith for his hard work in drawing together a Brimpsfield Village Map that is displayed on this website with a copy on the Village noticeboard and in the Telephone Kiosk.
Richard Shelley has kindly added the
