J13 Roadworks progressing

J13 Roadworks

The improvements to J13 and the roundabout down to Ashby are progressing well. There will be a night-time (8pm - 6am) closure southbound on the A511 from 23 April for 6 weeks excluding Bank Holidays. Diversions will be in place. More about the roadworks >>

Eurovia Contracting have agreed to make some of their equipment and manpower available to help clean the grafitti from the bus shelter on the Ashby Road and they have offered to help with other projects around the parish where their equipment will be invaluable.



Advice to keep safe on our roads

Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Road Safety Partnership (LLRRSP) have issued a booklet with information about their organisation and what they do and with advice to avoid accidents when driving. The number of deaths and serious injuries in the counties has dropped considerably since 2005. However, there were still 379 deaths or serious injuries during 2015 and LLRRSP are working towards reducing this number further. The booklet contains information and advice that we can all heed to reduce accidents and make driving on our roads more pleasant. More advice and link to download the booklet >>

About Coleorton Parish

Coleorton Parish includes the villages of Coleorton, Coleorton Moor, Church Town and Farm Town as well as parts of Peggs Green, Griffydam and Lount. The Parish Plan survey in 2008 found that parishioners felt communication of information throughout the parish was not effective and so a website was set up to address this. The website has now become a centre of information about activities and events in and around Coleorton, local clubs and organisations, a directory for local businesses and services and a platform for people who would like to share their enthusiasm for local history and the environment.

If you would like to contribute any item about Coleorton or surrounding areas or add details of your club, organisation or event (no charge) or have any suggestions for items on this website please email webmaster@coleorton.org.uk.
