Minety is a lively, active village with a population of approximately 1,450. It has a good community spirit and many social activities. Approximately 30% of the inhabitants are retired, 52% are working either full or part time and the remaining 18% are in education.
Most workers travel to Swindon, Bristol, Cirencester, Reading or London, with the remainder being employed locally or on the many outlying farms. Despite the number of commuters living in the village, Minety retains a strong and very distinct rural feel.
The village website, www.minety.net, provides contact details for the 27 clubs and activities available to residents, and – together with the parish magazine – is run by the church.
The PCC has established good links with the village school, which currently has 127 pupils and is a CofE school. The OLM, a Lay Minister and the Verger all conduct School Assemblies weekly, and the school actively engages in Festival Services such as Harvest and Mothering Sunday.
