A village wouldn’t be a village without shops, a school, a pub, and places for people to meet up in. Tadpole Garden Village will have all of these, and more.

Most importantly for parents, there’s a new primary school. Tadpole Farm Church of England Primary Academy accepted its first intake in September 2014 and has places for 420 children. For older pupils, Isambard Community School is within about 20 minutes’ walk.

You’ll also be able to stroll or cycle into the Village Centre for handy shops, healthcare facilities, the village pub and the proposed community centre. There’ll be games of cricket on the village pitch, the opportunity to try your hand at growing your own produce on the allotments, and for the youngsters, plenty of places for play and adventure. Job opportunities will be created at the shops, pub and healthcare amenity.
