We need to appoint two more Parish Councillors to support the Parish.


Are you interested in local current affairs?

Do you wish to serve your community?

Could you provide a voice for residents?


If you feel like you would like to get involved in making decisions about your local community and make a significant contribution to the area in which you live, then this is the position for you! You will need to attend the monthly Parish Council meeting plus other ad-hoc meetings and possibly join a working group. It would be fantastic if we could have one candidate to represent Wraxhill area of the Parish please.

Applications are invited by anyone registered as a Local Government Elector for the Parish on the Electoral Register who is and has been living in or within a three mile radius of the parish for the whole of the period of the last 12 months.

For further details or to submit your interest please contact Jude our clerk email: clerk@eastcokerparish.com or come along to our next meeting at 7.00pm at the Pavilion on 9th October to see what we get up to.

East Coker Parish Summer Fun

We had a fabulous event on Saturday – enjoyed by everybody in spite of the searing hot sunshine!
This was our first stab at a Community Event –  it was so good to see Villagers chatting, laughing and enjoying a lovely lunch – street style!
Belly Dancers, Tai Chi demonstrations, great stalls, Community Police, Firemen with their engine, games and competitions. We hope you enjoyed it all and thank you so much for coming. We will try and turn the heat down next year!

It is with great sadness that we are writing this, our fellow Councillor James New passed away on Sunday 22nd October. We are all deeply saddened by his passing and our heart felt thoughts go out to his wife, Helen and their baby son, Tobias.

James, or Jimmy as he preferred to be called, was an active member of the Parish Council and served for many years. He will be dearly missed by the Parish Council and Parishioners.

Mobile Library times have changed

For those that are new to the village or don’t know we are fortunate to have a mobile library that visits the parish every 4 weeks on Tuesday, it is parked outside the Helyar Arms Pub (BA22 9JR) 12.40 tp 12.55pm.  If we do not use this amazing service it will  sadly stop. SO please support your mobile library. Please see the calandar for new dates and times.
