Bradpole Parish Council manages this website to enable readers to be kept up to date with developments and issues facing the Civil Parish of Bradpole, its Council, and its residents.

Do you know the difference between a Civil Parish and an Ecclesiastical Parish? Our Parish Council page will explain this in more detail.

Bradpole Parish Council represents the views of local people, negotiates and influences the decisions which directly affect the community and aims to improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in the area.

We maintain this community website as a relevant source of factual information by regular updating.

A Defibrillator is coming to Bradpole Viillage

Thanks to the efforts of the Village Fete Committee and supporters a cheque for £1200 has been handed to the Parish Council by Fete Committee members to be held “ring fenced” pending the installation of a defibrillator in the centre of Bradpole Village.

It is planned for the defibrillator to be located in the telephone box outside of the Bradpole Village Stores & Post Office once the legal paperwork has been completed.
Bradpole Councillors have transferred a similar amount from the Council’s reserves to enable the purchase of the apparatus to be completed.

Bradpole Parish Council will continue to look at the possibility of installing additional facilities at the other settlements within the Civil Parish.

Round Bridport Bus~ Trial Extended U.F.N., Alternatives to be considered

Service 7 Round Bridport Bus Service Trial* operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays servicing the parishes of Allington, Bothenhampton, Bradpole & Bridport

alt="local dignatories welcome the community bus"
* Earlier this year and with financial support from Bradpole & Allington parishes Bridport Town Council extended the trial period with revised routes and timetables.

No 7 ROUTES from 6th March 2019

No 7 TIMETABLE from 6th March 2019

An Aug 2019 review demonstrated that whilst there had been a marginal increase in usage the then current levels remained below those expected. 
Alternative options are being considered during which time the existing service will be extended until further notice.

**********************************

In Aug 2019 Bridport Town Clerk ,Will Austin, said: “We are disappointed at the take-up to date and want to see more people using the service to demonstrate a greater community benefit. We are also looking at other ways of running the service to show that we’re getting best value.   There is strong support for the service amongst councillors and a recognition of its importance to regular passengers who might otherwise not be able to get to the town centre.”
