Welcome to East Brent Parish Council Website.

Our Objective in designing this website was twofold.  Firstly The Parish Council wanted to create a website that informed all parishioners and interested parties of the work of the council and to make more readily available public documents which had previously only been available as hard copies upon request.

Secondly, we wanted to create a wider community site where organisations within the parish could also provide information about the work that they undertake.  We hope that this section of the website will grow and provide feedback to the parish council and inform future decisions to be made.

We also hope that organisations within the parish will find it a useful resource to  enable them to broadcast the voluntary work that they are undertaking within the community.

If you would like your village organisation to be included within the website please email webadmin@eastbrentparishcounil.org.uk

The website was created under the direction of a sub committee of The Parish Council, I should like to thank the committee for their hard work in creating what I hope parishioners will find a useful resource.

All parishioners in the villages of East Brent, Rooksbridge and Edingworth are stakeholders in our community and we would welcome comments on how we can improve the website.

Please email The Clerk at theclerk@eastbrentparishcouncil.org.uk with any feedback that you might have.

I do hope that you find our website helpfull and informative.  

Chairman, East Brent Parish Council.

As your Parish Council, we have earmarked

SATURDAY 14TH MAY 2016

LITTER PICKING DAY

so we very much hope that the caring villagers of the Parish of East Brent, including Rooks Bridge and Edingworth  will wish to join our gang and come and help to get it tidied.  We will be getting equipment, bags etc from Sedgemoor District Council and we will of course be carrying out the necessary risk assessment.

We will assemble here at The Clocktower at Rossholme (vehicle access via Church Road, not Wickham Way please) at 9.30am and tea, coffee and biscuits (thanks to Mr & Mrs Kemp) will be available all day.

We are happy for people to turn up on the day but it would be very helpful if you could let me know by, phone, email or in person, if you are able to volunteer so that we can get some teams organised in advance.

Plastic bottles, crisp packets, chocolate wrappers, used bus tickets, unwanted flyers – are all symptoms of our throw away society but, unfortunately, very few of them are biodegradable so they litter our countryside until someone makes the effort to pick them up. Whatever the politics, austerity measures and the need to reduce spending mean that the local authority does not have the funding to carry out these tasks so it falls on us, as responsible citizens, to do something about it.

PLEASE COME AND JOIN OUR GANG!
