Shepton Beauchamp Parish Council
Shepton Beauchamp is a vibrant Village of all ages and is lucky to have a wide range of groups and organisations within the community. The Duke of York Public House offers real ales, home cooked food, bed and breakfast and is dog & child friendly. Angies Shop and Tea Room is open daily for all your essentials, coffee, bacon rolls and fabulous cheese.
The Church is the pillar of the community with always a warm welcome on hand. The Village Hall is where most of the local clubs including WI, Zumba and Art Club meet and is home to the village Pre-School where all our little people can learn in a fun and caring environment.
There is also a toddler and mother and baby group. Village children are then ready to move on to the Village Primary School which is thriving and is located in the centre of the Village. The school is lucky to have a lovely garden backing onto fields where children can enjoy being outside.
There are a number of fabulous other local businesses including:
Middletons specialist Watch & Clock shop, For All Occasions florist,
Bakery computing, Dennis China Works which is home to a superb pottery
and Tea Room. There is the Hair & Beauty Lounge and two Farm Shops
selling locally grown produce.
The Parish Council and a number of other Village organisations work together to keep the warm, fun & caring community together. We are proud to have an Events Team who organise a calendar of events throughout the year including Christmas Markets, Themed Evenings, Bonfire Nights and Fun Runs together with the famous St Petrocs Fair! The Village is lucky to have The Cowleaze Meadow a wonderful haven for wildlife for all to enjoy on one of the many walks. The recreation field has a wonderful children’s play area with enclosed court for tennis and other sports to be played. This is home to the sports pavilion and the football field.
There are also allotments, with some available plots, for those wishing to make the most of the wonderful soil and grow their own. The Village Facebook page has many members and is an excellent way to find out what’s going on, has items for sale, news about traffic and weather and also neighbourhood watch reports. The Village is part of The Web, the local Parish Magazine, delivered through your door to keep everyone up to date with news and events. There are groups and clubs for all ages.
