Welcome to our community website

Welcome to our community website which covers activities within the Parish of Clyffe Pypard (The Barton, Bupton, Bushton and Clyffe Pypard) as well as Thickthorn and Preston and other neighbouring villages. We hope to make this your 'one-stop-shop' for news and information on local amenities, community activities and forthcoming events. We rely on the cooperation of all residents to make this a great place to live. Similarly we will need your help to keep this site up to date and a useful source of local information. You can do this by reading the Community Newsletter and coming back to this site to see how you can get involved and contribute to its future content.

The Goddard Arms


          We hosted a Community Evening for anyone that wanted to know more about our efforts in saving the Goddard Arms in Clyffe Pypard. The steering group have been fairly busy over the past couple of months navigating our way through the process as well as trying to understand the community perspective on this venture. We welcome you to an update where we’ll share the results of our survey, along with information about potential business models (legal but important stuff for potential investors) and the next steps to the aquisition of the pub.


If you would rather have an email on the progress please contact Diane the Parish Clerk
