Welcome to the Bathford Parish Council Website

This site is intended to provide easy access to information about the activities of the council in their representation of the people of Bathford, Warleigh and Shockerwick.

Bathford Parish Council meet on the third Monday of the month in the Parish Council office beneath the Village Community Co-Operative Shop on the High Street. Meetings usually start at 7.30 pm. All Bathford residents are welcome to attend, and are encouraged to bring up any matters of particular interest or concern during the first five minutes of the meeting.

Minutes of Council meetings can be seen on this website, on the Council noticeboards in the village and in the shop. The notice boards are next to the Dovers Lane postbox near the shop and on the corner between 36 and 37 Meadow Park.

The clerk to the council is Jon Cooper and we can be contacted by email, post or telephone and details can be found on our Contact Us page. To reduce spam there are no email addresses on this website so please use the contact page to make the initial approach but please remember to leave your postal or email address or a telephone number to enable us to reply.

The Parish Office will be open to members of the public on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday mornings from 9.30am to 11.30am

The main works likely to affect anyone who needs to use the Great Western Mainline take place this summer from 18th July to 31st August. So even if you do not use the railway to commute regularly, you may still appreciate forewarning of potential disruption to any day trips you may be planning to take during the summer holidays.

Staff from Network Rail will be on hand to explain in more detail about the project and staff from First Great Western will be on hand to share more detail on timetable changes.
