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.
