Welcome to Brimpsfield, and to your new home! We hope you will be happy here. Brimpsfield, for such a small village, has a thriving social community with activities for all ages; we invite you to get involved once you have settled in! You will be very welcome. You can find all about the village and what’s happening in it at www.brimpsfieldvillage.org, but in the meantime here is some information which we hope you will find useful. On the village website you will find information about village events and societies, including those run by the Village Hall committee, the Garden Society and others (see the homepage and the ‘About the village’ tab). This includes a map of houses in the village, links to bus timetables, the Parish Council website, and other useful links. Keep watching for details of forthcoming events, mostly at the Village Hall, (on the edge of the village on the Birdlip road). The Village Hall has a bar which is currently open for drinks and socialising on Friday evenings. The parish magazine, Parish Connections, contains details of local church services and activities, as well as other events in the wider area. The village post box is on The Knapp, (the lane opposite Brimpsfield House), on the left-hand side after the first house, (it cannot be seen from the road). Collections are at 10.30am approx and 4.15pm on weekdays, and 9am on Saturdays. Your rubbish is collected every fortnight on Tuesdays and should be out ready for collection by 7 am: Paper in Black Box 1, Glass in Black Box 2, Plastic & tins in the large White Bag, Cardboard in the (new) Blue Bag, Food waste in the (new) small lockable bin. Non-recyclable waste in the Black wheelie bin and Green waste in the green wheelie bin – if you have bought your licence. The bin men will not collect non-compliant or incorrect boxes/recepticals. You can find the schedule on the Cotswold District Council website at www.cotswold.gov.uk or from the website under ‘Refuse Collection’. The nearest doctors’ surgeries are at Painswick and Rendcomb. The nearest village shop is at Miserden; a fuller range of shops, and petrol, is at Brockworth. Cotteswold Dairies (www.cotteswold-dairy.co.uk) deliver milk and other groceries to the village three days a week. Newspaper deliveries: newspapers can be ordered from Witcombe Village News (email@example.com) who deliver very early every morning to the white box in the village Telephone Kiosk, from where you can collect your copy.
FINALLY, from time to time, a general circulation email is sent out to villagers to inform them of things that it is hoped will be of relevance to us all. If you would like to be included in that Circulation List, then please Contact Us.
