Bradpole Community Groups

Community groups form the backbone of our local society and there are many possible sources of funding available to these groups.

Community Groups can be involved in all sorts of ways within the civil parish such as working in collaboration with the parish council to manage and enhance our important green spaces.

Bradpole Parish Council is keen to encourage and facilitate the formation of such groups within the Community.

If you want to know more about creating such a Group in contact the Parish Council who can give you support and guidance.

If you already have a Community based group here and would like to have some details of your activities posted on this page please let us know.

‘Tots @ Ten’

Parents and carers will be most welcome to join others with pre-school children for coffee or tea in the church on Wednesdays from 10.am to 11.30.am during term time. The children are served a fruit snack.

We move the chairs to one side so there is plenty of room for the children to have lots of fun and use up their energy! There is a good selection of toys and games and we have a sing-song.

There are nappy changing facilities in the toilet.

There is no charge but donations are always welcome!

All our helpers have been CRB checked.
