Welcome to Ilminster

Ilminster's Community Website


The Ilminster Web came into being as a direct result of local residents saying they wanted a means of accessing accurate and up-to-date information about Ilminster and its community. It has been designed to address those issues by providing a range of useful information not only for the residents of Ilminster and the surrounding parishes but hopefully it will also be an informative guide for visitors to the Ilminster area.


Our web site has been divided into the following sections: a home page, community information, community plan, business, local government and tourism. The home page carries a selection of information from local news, the next two events on the calendar and an item about Ilminster or the Community web site itself.


Click on the Community button and you will be presented with a wealth of facts and figures, want to know when the Brownies or the Womens' Institute meet then click on Community Groups Directory and you will find all you need to know.


Community Safety brings reports from the Local Beat Officer Louise Wright and the latest reports from the Local Action Group for Community Safety. There is also a list of contact numbers for other support organisations, such as the Samaritans and Domestic Abuse.

Ilminster - Party On The Park - Sunday 30 August 2014

Party on the Park will take place next Sunday – final preparations for the event are going ahead. As in previous years, entry to this event will be free to both stallholders and members of the public. The whole purpose of the event is to provide ‘fun’ activities for the local community during the school holidays and to give local community groups the opportunity to raise money. It also helps promote Ilminster as a town to visit.
  • Activities include:
  • Tug of War Competition
  • Kids – Tug of War for fun
  • Puppet Show
  • Art Play
  • Fizz Pop Science
  • Music throughout the Day
    • IOUs
    • A night with Lions
    • The Edge of Knowhere
    • Four Thousand Dollar Ham Napkin
    • Wise Intentions
  • Tea Tents, BBQs
  • And much more…

Please put the date in your diary and come and join in the fun. More details about the event are available our Facebook page

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local businesses who have sponsored the event. Without such sponsorship the event would not be possible - businesses such as C&D SW Ltd, Gary Lawrence, Mitchams Accountants and Dot-The-Eye Ltd. Special thanks must go to C&D SW Ltd who, at very short notice, has agreed to provide us with a trailer on which the Bands will be performing. Bonnings Transport who has supported this event since it began were unable to support this year’s event due to circumstances beyond their control.

If you are an Ilminster community group and you want a stall it’s not too late to book your pitch. Contact us by emailing
