30mphPetition to arrange a Speedwatch

Despite the installation of mobile warning signs that were erected in 2011 following earlier Speedwatch campaigns, speeding through the village remains a major concern. The volume of traffic appears to have increased which only makes the matter more dangerous.

The Parish Council have opened a petition to gain enough support to request a Speedwatch from the County Council. This is available at the Post Office. Alternatively, download petition form, collect signatures and return to Parish Clerk.

Change to Bus Service 155

Following review of Services 120 and 155, these two services have been combined into one - Service 125 - with East Midlands Airport no longer being served. The new timetable for Service 125 will be effective from Monday 24 February 2020. More inc timetable >>

Green-fingered volunteers needed!

For the last couple of years the Parish Council has arranged for plant boxes to be fixed on the village signs and filled with flowering plants during the summer months. They do brighten up the village. Most of the planter boxes are rented from a company who also provide the plants and water them. However, some residents have asked if they could maintain a box near to where they live.

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.
