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.









Dear Sir / Madam,   


You will be aware that at the start of July this year the Accident and Emergency Department at Weston General Hospital announced that it

would have to temporarily close overnight due to staff shortages.


As we are now in the main holiday season the hospital has asked me to re-circulate their poster advising members of the public that the hospital’s A&E

Department continues to be closed overnight and should anyone have an urgent need for medical advice overnight they are advised to telephone

the free, 24 health helpline, NHS 111.


In the event of someone experiencing a  life threatening medical emergency (eg, head injury/ unconsciousness, heart attack, stroke or a

serious loss of blood)  people should telephone 999 and ask for an ambulance.


I would be grateful if you would consider sharing this information with residents and visitors to the area in whatever way you feel most effective.

Joseph’s Pound Children's Play Area, Rooksbridge.

Last year the East Brent Parish Council opened a new play area, off of Pill Road, for all of the children of Rooksbridge. The Parish Council is delighted to announce that the more equipment has now been installed which includes swings and rides for younger children.

The Parish Council would like to stress however, that the equipment and area is for the enjoyment of ALL the children of Rooksbridge.
