- Community events and activities, including the annual West Bletchley Carnival.
- Community groups such as Men in Sheds, Living in the Moment and Frank's over 55s.
- Free swimming at Bletchley Leisure Centre.

- Active mental health forum
- Environmental projects involving local primary schools, community groups and residents.

We focus on services that you think are important and will improve your quality of life.
We are here to represent you in the best way we can.
We hope the website will be a further resource for community development and support through:
- involving local people more in what is happening in the community
- improving communication;
- engaging everyone in local issues, by providing you with more information.

Social Media Guidelines:
Liking and Following
West Bletchley Council will make positive use of social media to keep local residents and groups updated with details of current services, events and facilities and other relevant useful information. We do not undertake to follow or connect with all of those who contact the Council via social media. If we do engage with individuals or groups via social media it does not imply that we necessarily endorse or support them.
Posted comments across any of the Council's social media platforms will be monitored during the Council’s office opening hours (0930 -1600, Monday to Friday).
We would expect that comments will:
• be polite and relevant.
• not be repetitive.
• not promote political parties.
• not publicise personal information of those posting or others.
• not advertise specific products or services.
• not be unlawful, libellous, threatening, obscene or offensive.
