Welcome to our village website.
Farrington Gurney is a small rural village that is a nice place to live. Situated in the north east of Somerset, in between Bristol,
Bath and Wells. There is a parish church nestling in the rolling countryside along with the popular village memorial hall which is
the social heart of the village.
As well as being a community of dwellings, we have a thriving business community employing many people.
The Parish Council meets every month and always welcomes members of the public to attend and voice their opinions on the running of
local affairs. To see the meeting dates and check the minutes and agendas go to the Parish Council page on this website. We hope you
enjoy this website and we look forward to your input on any events and any matters that concern Farrington Gurney.

BANES Council and our role is to provide a confidential service to residents throughout the BANES area. Our team will help the isolated
and vulnerable stay independent in their own homes, by linking them with excellent professional services such as Age UK, VisionPLUS,
DeafPLUS,Carers Centre, The Alzeihmer’s Society the Independent Living Service and many others, we also assist with filling out forms
for obtaining benefits etc.
We are planning an event on the 16th June 2015, at the Farrington Gurney Memorial Hall between 10.00-12.00.and hope that many residents will attend. A number of agencies will be there to pass on information. Some entertainment in the form
of a quiz, raffle etc., will be put on and refreshments will be served. Transport can be arranged for those who need it by ringing
