Full Description of Organisation

The Peasedown Community Trust has been established with the aim of championing civic and community life in Peasedown St. John.


Set up in the wake of the recent coronavirus pandemic, Peasedown Community Trust is an amalgamation of several community projects that have decided to join together to form one united charity.


The Trustees, a collection of business representatives, community leaders and councillors, have between them years’ of experience of running successful business and voluntary initiatives.


Peasedown St John is a fantastic place to live, work and visit – and we have a lot to shout about. With a population of almost 7,000 residents, the village has a need for a civic body that champions good causes and is proactive with ‘getting things done'.


Our team of trustees are already running successful community projects, and we have a vision to do a lot more over the next 5 years.


Projects currently run by the Trust are:

  • Peasedown Community Library – in partnership with B&NES Council, the Trust run the village’s library service. Over 20 volunteers help manage a wide range of library services each week.

  • Peasedown Community Garden – in partnership with Curo, they run a sensory, quiet garden where villagers can go to relax, unwind, and volunteer in a range of initiatives.

  • Dementia Friendly Peasedown – dementia affects everyone! A team of trained Dementia Champions are raising awareness of the condition across the village and helping to create a dementia-friendly community we can all be proud of!

The Community Trust’s aims and aspirations are to

  • Run projects that strengthen the community

  • Run services that benefit local residents

  • Champion local issues

  • Represent the views of residents

The Trust will also have a strong environmental angle. We want to champion environmental causes, support projects that encourage sustainable living and foster an approach that protects and strengthens the local habitat.


We’re very fortunate to already have partnerships in place with B&NES Council, Curo and the Alzheimers’ Society. We’ll be using our links with all three bodies to champion civic and community life in Peasedown St John.
