Burtle Village

A warm welcome to the Burtle Village Web Site, here you will find information about our village. The site provides information about both our history as well as present day life along with providing updates on future activities.

Burtle is located in the beautiful county of Somerset in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The area has been farmed for thousands of years originally salt beds and nowadays it provides good agricultural land to sustain many livestock farms.

There is a thriving local community within our village with people socialising in many different ways, Café Burtle provides the opportunity to catch up with friends and some of the many local groups have pages on our website.

The Village Hall provides the opportunity to get together and many of the activities in the village take place here. The Church is a welcoming place to either take a quiet few minutes on your own or take part in more formal gatherings.

“We must not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and to know the place for the first time.” – T. S. Eliot          Explore Burtle

Meet the Village Hall Committee

The newly elected Village Hall Committee would like to invite everyone to a “Meet the new Committee” social evening to be held at Burtle Village Hall on Friday, July 22nd 7.00pm to 10.00pm. 

This is YOUR opportunity to meet the committee members, provide your views and opinions on what the committee should be doing, what events, functions, facilities you would like to see in the hall and how you think the hall can be improved.  We really want you ideas and opinions.

It is also an opportunity to get involved, if you want to, with the hall and other clubs and groups.  Put your name down as a volunteer and tell us how you would like to help.  We also have a digital newsletter that is sent by email, put you name and email address down to receive information on forthcoming events, last minute changes, reminders and general information.
