Bruton Town Council is delighted to welcome you to the brand-new town website. We want you to be able to find the answer to almost any query about Bruton. A place to eat and drink and a fitness class or sports club to work off the consequences, a B&B for when friends come to stay, somewhere to amuse your children, a musical event or an art exhibition, details of transport, hospitals, schools, taxis – all this and much, much more is here for you. The two main sections are devoted to local businesses and community activities, and you can find out who’s on the Council as well, or look at photographs of the town and its amenities. A new Architecture feature is coming shortly, covering both Bruton’s historic buildings and exciting new developments.

Something we’ve been careful to ensure is that the website is easily accessible on smartphones and tablets, so you can access it wherever you are.

A website like this is useful if it is accurate, useless if it’s not. That accuracy depends on those who supply the information. So if there’s a change to your business hours or your group’s phone number or email, or if you notice that something is incorrect, please let me know. We would love you to supply photos to go with your entry, if you haven’t already done so. And we welcome submissions to the Photo Gallery.

We very much hope you like it, and will have fun browsing and perhaps discovering aspects of Bruton that you didn’t know about – we love our town and want everyone to enjoy the experience of living or visiting here.
