Incidents involving large goods vehicles

Villagers will be aware that large goods vehicles travel through the village on a daily basis, en route to and from the cheese factory at Ashley Chase. On occasion, vehicles meet head to head and find it difficult to manouvre out of the situation. If you witness such an impasse, the manager at the cheese factory has asked that it be reported to them at the time, so that they can take action to address the issue and seek to advise the drivers how to avoid it in the future.

The number to call is:

01308 482580 during office hours

07974 215148 out of office hours

Annual Village Meeting

On 20th May, the Parish Council hosted the Annual Parish Meeting at Long Bredy Village Hall. In a break with tradition, the meeting was moved to a Sunday afternoon in an effort to make it easier for people to attend and to encourage the younger members of the parish to join in. It was pleasing to see that a small number of children were amongst the attendees, but the overall numbers were less than hoped for.

The meeting heard reports from the Parish Council and local groups, including the Bride Valley Gardening Club, Ladybirds, the WI, St Peters Church, and the Bell Ringers. The meeting ended with the 100 Club draw, before we all tucked in to a delicious spread of home-baked goods and light refreshments!

Any feedback on the format or content would be greatly appreciated by the Parish Council so that they can continue to develop and improve future meetings.


Superfast Broadband is coming to Long Bredy!

The new green cabinet serving Long Bredy residents with high speed broadband is situated near the entrance to Sands Farm. In the not too distant future this will go live. Please check for updates or register to be kept informed on progress.

Unfortunately, there are some residents within the parishes of Kingston Russell and Long Bredy who are not in any of the plans for superfast broadband . If you are one of these residents and are receiving less that 2Mbps, you might be eligible to apply for the Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme. This scheme provides residents with a subsidy towards the cost of installation of wireless or satellite broadband. You will be able to find more information about applying for the scheme on the website:

Table Tennis

Long Bredy Village Hall now has a table tennis table. The hope is to organise some games, and even coaching if we have enough participants of secondary school age and older. We are especially keen to persuade adult new-comers to give it a try!

Please contact so that we can organise a time to meet.
