On behalf of the Long Load Parish Council, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our new web site.
Long Load is a small village on the edge of the Somerset levels. Our most notable landmark is the bridge across the River Yeo at the northern end of the village, elements of which date back to the original 15th century bridge damaged during the civil war “Battle of Langport” in 1645.
The web site contains a host of information relating to Parish Council business along with details of other activities within the village, providing useful contact details for those wishing to learn more about what is on offer.
The village hall was purchased for the villagers in 1965 having previously been the village church school. Since then the hall has become the centre for many activities within the village and continues to host a range of events catering to the specific interests of parishioners. It has recently undergone significant refurbishment with the help of a heritage lottery fund grant and will no doubt continue to provide a village hub for many years to come.
For those of you who live within the parish, please consider becoming involved in one of the many activities on offer. We are always looking for “new blood” to support the Parish Council and Village Hall Committees and to ensure our events programme supports the evolving village community.
Thank you for your interest in our village web site
Long Load Parish Council chairman
