The Birlingham Village Website,, was set up in 2012 by Birlingham Parish Council to provide information on the running of the council and to give details of organisations and events in the village and local news.

The website is now run independently of the Parish Council by the Birlingham Website Group, which is part of the Jubilee Committee. This has allowed the website to offer advertising to local businesses, the income from which will be used for the benefit of the village.

14.  Do you receive the village email newsletter?
15.  Do you have any comments/suggestions on how the email might be improved?

Three months before the website was launched, the Council began to distribute an email newsletter, Birlingham News, to residents, their friends and families. To date there have been over 90 village emails. Currently over 75% of households in Birlingham receive the emails, which are also distributed to a number of former residents and other people with connections to the village. The village email is also run by the Birlingham Jubilee Committee.
