Village Booklet                                 


The Village Booklet has been produced by the Parish Council for the benefit of everyone in the village, but particularly for new residents to whom we offer a warm welcome. It gives information about activities and services in Brafield as well as including details of the nearest facilities if they are not available in the village. We have also included a map in the centre-fold of the booklet.


Although we have done our best to check and recheck the information to ensure it was accurate when it went to print in February 2010, it will obviously change over time. We will try to keep you informed of any amendments or additions through our Parish Council Newsletter, as well as listing them on this website.

If you have any corrections, comments or suggestions about the booklet, or think there is something else that should be included next time we go to print, then please contact Helen Barnell on 890373, email  or use the ‘contact us’ facility on the website.

Together with the website and our regular Newsletter, we hope to keep you in touch with what is happening locally and hope this will encourage you to share in the life of our community and feel part of it.


If you hear of any new residents moving to the village, do please contact a member of the Parish Council so that we can ensure they receive the booklet to help them settle in.

If you know of anyone who may need to receive this information in a larger print size, please let us know.

You may also download an electronic (.pdf) copy of the booklet by clicking here.

However, it will not print exactly as the bound copy from the printers.  In addition any ammendments will not be included in the downloadable version until they are significant in size or number, or a new version is considered necessary.


The following amendments have been reported.

If similar information to these amendments is available on the website, the link on the right hand side of the following table will link to those details.
