1. Parish Council Meeting, 13th January
The next meeting of Birlingham Parish Council takes place this evening (Wednesday 13th January) at 7.30pm in Birlingham Village Hall. The meeting is a week earlier than usual because of the need to set the precept (parish Council Tax) for the year. As well as setting the Council’s budget, there will be an update on progress towards a Village Design Statement and a discussion on the possibility of a cycle path or footpath between Birlingham and Pershore. During the meeting there is an opportunity to express your views on local issues, so please come along.
The agenda for the meeting is available at and the minutes of the previous Parish Council meeting on 18th November can be viewed at
This year sees the Queen’s 90th birthday and there will be events organised nationally to commemorate the occasion. Her birthday is on 21st April but most celebrations are expected to take place on her official birthday, during the weekend of 10th-12th June. The Birlingham Jubilee Committee are planning to organise an event in the village during this period but as yet no date has been fixed.
If you would like to be involved in the preparations or have ideas for how the occasion can best be celebrated, please contact the Jubilee Committee at or leave a message on 01386 751717.
We have received the results of the 2015 Wychavon Parish Games. This year Birlingham entered three of the fifteen activities and came 22nd overall (compared with 29th last year).
