A message from Coleorton Parish Council regarding COVID-19

We are in exceptional times, and in line with government advice, please stay at home and only leave the house for one of the four reasons outlined in the latest advice.

The Government is allowing one form of outdoor exercise per day. There are woodlands and open spaces within the Parish of Coleorton.

The woodlands and open spaces in the Parish have public access via public footpaths, bridleways or permissive access (at the permission of the landowner), and are within walking distance of where people live. This makes it easier to get exercise either alone or with someone you live with. Please keep 2m (6ft) away from others and do not congregate in groups of more than two people. Please do not go onto a site if it will be difficult for you to do this. This is essential to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Peggs Green Play Area

Due to the risk of contagion we request that the play equipment on the Peggs Green Recreation ground is not used in the current crisis. We have placed tape around the equipment to make it clear these are not to be used.

Let's all stay safe and support each other through the coming weeks.

Thank you.

Coleorton Parish Council

Assistance for Coleorton Residents during Corona Crisis

The Parish Councillors have discussed what support they can provide/co-ordinate in these difficult times for vulnerable and isolated residents.

There have been many suggestions and offers of leaflet distribution. So that self-isolating people who don't use the internet can know about the support available locally it's suggested that distributing a contact form (like the one pictured below (and which is being used elsewhere in the UK) would work well.

A volunteer would put their contact details on the front and distribute in their local street / area, and on the reverse side will be a note stating that if the recipient is not able to contact this volunteer, any one of the councillors listed can be contacted (names and telephone numbers will be on the reverse side).

Post-cards will be delivered around the parish in the next few days.

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.


Local businesses and services

Coleorton residents are an enterprising bunch: the latest Coleorton businesses listed in the local services directory include IT specialists, photographers and dog walkers. Email webmaster@coleorton.org.uk if you would like your local business listed (free of charge for Coleorton-based businesses or owners).
