Welcome to the Huish Episcopi Community Website.
Our village of Huish Episcopi lies in the heart of Somerset. We have good recreational facilities, well-regarded schools for children of all ages, fine level walks, cycle ways and footpaths beside the beautiful River Parrett.
The boundary of Huish Episcopi is not all that easily understood, so for clarification please refer to the boundary map on this site.
We are closely aligned with the town of Langport with all the advantages that this brings. Within a 15-mile radius lie the larger towns of Taunton, Yeovil, Bridgwater and Clark's Village at Street, as well as ready access to the M5 and A303.
Due to the fact that we do not incur any Webmaster's costs, we are in the fortunate position of being able to accumulate and distribute funds within our community. Last year, we were able to support our local Primary School by way of providing the finance for much needed additional computers for use in their increasingly important IT lessons.
All parishioners are very welcome to attend our Council Meetings, which are held bi-monthly, usually on the third Monday of the month at Huish Sixth. We occasionally have additional meetings to action, in the main planning applications. All meetings are published under ‘Upcoming Events’, likewise the Councillors’ Surgery, which is held on the third Saturday of each month at Langport Town Hall from 11am to 12 noon and attended by at least one Councillor from both Huish Episcopi Parish and Langport Town Councils.
We continue to support Langport town, two thirds of our precept going towards maintaining both communities’ amenities.
We are pleased that our advertisers are continuing to support our Website, as not only does this increase their presence in our community but their contributions also benefit good causes in and around our village. Please kindly support the Huish Episcopi Community Website and the businesses displayed on this site by making them aware of where you saw their advertisement.
Finally, your participation is encouraged - any local contributions, whether as an article or photographs, will always be gratefully received by our Webmaster.
