Being involved

Blagdon Parish Council engages with the community in a variety of ways.

  • public meetings – the council meetings and annual village meeting
  • monthly surgeries – run in conjunction with St Andrews Coffee Stop once a month
  • councillor feedback from community meetings – Blagdonia, Living Well etc
  • surveys
  • contact details are provided on noticeboards and on this website
  • Parish Council postbox – located in Blagdon Stores for village views

There are also council publications which are divided into three main groups.

  • Parish Council News – published after each council meeting. The first Parish Council News was published in July 2015.
  • In the past the council has produced a news sheet called Blagdon Views. The last Blagdon Views was published in June 2015.
  • The council has also published Highlights. These were published between January 2003 and July 2013.

Further methods that the Council may use include:
