swiftSwift nesting survey

Leicestershire and Rutland wildlife conservation organisation Nature Spot is concerned there are fewer swifts around.

Swift numbers have fallen by about half in only 20 years and they are Amber listed as of conservation concern. Nature Spot are asking people to let them know if they see swifts nesting so they can get a better understanding of how many and where the birds are. There are things they can do to help swifts succeed - like putting up swift-friendly nesting boxes.

Find out more and how to identify swifts in their Swift Spotting guide >>

Eurovia are moving on

The roadworks and improvements at the A42 J13 roundabout and the Tesco / Discovery Way works have pretty much come to an end. Eurovia, the main contractor for the projects, are moving out of their various encampments.

Joanne Pews, their PR lady, has been sending updates and reports most weeks about what they've done and what to expect the following week. She has sent a nice letter thanking everyone for their support and understanding during the disruption and, in good PR tradition, she would like to get people's views on how they did.

Eurovia have been very generous to local communities. Coleorton parish have benefited from help with cleaning graffiti off the new bus stop shelter, painting goal posts and provision of hi-viz vests. See our roadworks page for Joanne's letter and the questionnaire.

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.
