Welcome to the Batcombe Parish Council Website
The Parish Council's website is continually being developed and will gradually provide more information about the parish of Batcombe, local organisations, news and events - as well as those documents the Parish Council is required to publish.
BATCOMBE is a parish in the east of Somerset between Frome and Shepton Mallet, which consists of the villages of Batcombe and Westcombe together with a number of outlying hamlets and farmsteads. At the centre of the parish lies St Mary's Church with its magnificent 16th century tower, the Three Horseshoes pub, and a community centre consisting of the award-winning Jubilee Hall and the Old School Rooms. (To learn more about the Jubilee Hall and Old School Rooms click on the link to the Village Hall Trust website.)

Playing Field – New Play Equipment
Many thanks to those who have very generously responded to the letter from the Parish Council asking for donations/sponsorship to help raise the funds for new metal play equipment in the Playing Field. We have now reached our initial target of £6,000 from fundraising and donations, which should allow us to obtain a grant of £60,000 towards replacing the play equipment. However, we will continue fundraising to allow us to do more to improve the equipment in the Playing Field, and so would still welcome contributions from anyone who has not yet donated but would like to do so. Ideally, we will have enough additional money to replace the zip wire, which will need to done within the next few years.
