Monkton Combe Parish Council Ė Coronavirus Update:
Your ParishCouncil has met to consider what action they can take to alleviate some of the more onerous effects of the epidemic on local residents. We would like to act as a point of contact for people who need assistance and a co-ordinator of volunteers prepared to give it, and are setting up a group to manage this approach. Iím sure that other groups, friends and
neighbours have rallied around those most vulnerable but in the event of someone having no such help available we would ask that they contact us for advice and support Ė whether itís to be able to do shopping, pick up medication, get a hot meal, get help with online ordering or contacting other agencies, or simply having a question about the situation. We have funds
to allow us to supply what is required and sort out reimbursement afterwards if that is a concern.

We may not have all the answers but should be able to point you in the right direction. So please contact us, using the list below, either for help or to register as a volunteer, telling us what you can offer and your availability; let us know if youíre a member of another
group offering a similar service so we donít duplicate our efforts; simply call or text one ofthe following for your area:-

Walks in and around Monkton Combe

The countryside around here is stunningly beautiful. There are a variety of walks in the immediate area for you to explore. Some are quite easy going, while others take a bit more stamina.

Past Projects

  • Addition of a Village Green - organised by Village Hall Committee and the land kindly donated by Monkton Combe School

  • Foot Bridge over the Mill Leat - after a 20 year + absence, thus enabling the footpath to be fully used. Thanks to Parish Council and Colin Hudson from B&NES. This was a Millennium Project. The bridge is unofficially named "Millennium Bridge" A name plaque was added to the bridge in 2012.

  • 20mph Speed Limit - through village - organised by Monkton Combe School and Parish Council as a joint venture. Hopefully this will make vehicles slow down when driving through the single tracks and where roads are frequented by school children.

  • Lock up - repairs to the Lock up.

  • Playground - replacement equipment and new safety flooring

  • For current projects please contact the Parish Council
