Our next event is

Butleigh Parish Council

Parish Councils are the first tier of local government, and as such Butleigh Parish Council is the council closest to the residents of Butleigh. The council is made up of six Councillors, who are best placed to engage with residents and find out what the real local issues are and how to overcome them.

Butleigh Playing Fields Association

The Playing Field and Children’s Playgrounds in Butleigh are owned by the Parish Council but are administered and maintained by the Butleigh Playing Fields Association (BPFA). 

The compact “Back Town” site boasts two acres of grass pitch area and an area of hard standing, suitable for ball-games and skating.  Football, touch rugby, rounders, netball, basketball and a cricket practice area are just some of the facilities on offer. 

The Ann Heeley Heritage Trail

Butleigh is lucky enough to have a wonderful trail around the village known as the Ann Heeley Heritage Trail.

You will find the trail plaques outside many of the houses in the village. They contain lots of interesting facts and information about the properties and their history.
