Remembrance

The poppies on the lamposts around the parish are there to remind us that 11 November is Remembrance Day when we think about all the servicemen and women who gave their lives or were injured in fighting wars on our behalf.

On Sunday 10 November there will be a Remembrance Day Service at Viscount Beaumont School 10.00am followed by Service at the War Memorial at 10.55am and a reading of the names of the fallen. The Chairman of the Parish Council, Michael Specht, will lay a wreath on behalf of Coleorton residents.

Hospice HopeNew day centre for Hospice Hope

Thanks to a partnership between North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) and Bloor Homes, and the hard work of dedicated Trustees, the charity will have a new purpose-built day centre on Church Hill between Peggs Green and Swannington. The land is being provided by the Council, Bloor Homes are generously building it for free and The Ibstock Brick Company have offered to supply bricks!

It is anticipated that the day centre could be open by Summer 2021. The current centre at Griffydam "Hope House" has been made available by the loan of the house, and that comes to an end during 2021. So the new building is very timely. It will offer additional facilities.

As well as the Day Centre, Hospice Hope runs four weekly drop-in Support Cafés across North West Leicestershire for individuals, carers and immediate family members. Find out more at www.hospicehope.org.uk

Even with the generosity of Bloor Homes, Ibstock Brick and the Council funds are required to purchase furniture, specialist therapy items and to pay for trained nursing and therapy staff. The Coffee Morning on Wednesday 30 October at The New Lount Bowls Club raised over £1400. Thank you everyone who came and the volunteers who made and served refreshments, set up and cleared away the tables and chairs, assisted with the welcoming guests and parking and many other essential tasks behind the scenes.

coleorton parishParish Boundary

You may find it quite odd that The Woolrooms is not actually in Coleorton Parish, but Worthington, and so is the area of Lower Moor Road between brook in the dip and Rempstone Road. The current boundary is the result of changes made over several centuries for reasons long forgotten and quite irrelevant now. Some locals feel it's time to take another look so a petition has been raised to support a request for a change. Read more about proposed changes >>. The petition is available at Coleorton Post Office. You can also email comments to Andrew Hogsden Clerk to the Council at parishclerk@coleorton.org.uk



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).
