Annual Parish Meeting and Parish Council Meeting

The Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Tuesday 28 May 2024 at 7.00pm at the Beaumont Centre, Peggs Green, Coleorton. All electors of the Parish of Coleorton are welcome to speak and/or vote on any matter concerning the Parish. The meeting will be followed by May’s parish council meeting. The agenda for both meetings can be downloaded here.

Coleorton Wood Summer Opening

The car park will revert to summer opening times from 1st April and remain open until 8.00 p.m. As the nights draw in during September it will close progressively earlier until winter time closing at 4.00 p.m. on the 30th.

During the first few days of April, particularly if there’s significant cloud cover, it may be dark a little before 8.00 p.m. so we would request that you vacate earlier as appropriate.

Please do respect the closing times as the car park is opened and closed by volunteers and it would not be appropriate to expect them to wait for vehicles to vacate.

Please use the litter bin provided for dog waste and any other litter, and we hope you enjoy some lovely evening walks in the wood.

Coleorton Wood – Fallen trees

During the afternoon of Tuesday 26th March, a very tall (dead) tree is being felled in the post office field (this is the smaller gated area to the west of the main wood). The tree is very close to the grass path around the perimeter. Although the contractor will have all safety procedures in force, including lookouts stationed at either end of the path, it may be a good idea to avoid the post office wood if possible for that afternoon.

Coleorton Wood Update

Very happy to report that the Post Office wood, the small woodland to the west of the main Coleorton Wood, is now officially open again. A big thank you to the Coleorton and New Lount Volunteer Group who have worked so hard to ensure that all fallen and unstable trees and damage caused by the recent storms was cleared up and made safe.
Why not head off to their Facebook page to see what they do; perhaps you might like to have a “taster” session with them and enjoy the great outdoors whilst doing really good stuff for the local community. Search Facebook for Coleorton and New Lount Volunteer Group.

Coleorton Wood – now opened

We’re pleased to report that the main wood and car park is now open; many thanks to the wonderful Coleorton and New Lount Volunteer Group for attending to the unsafe fallen trees. The post office wood (the west side of Coleorton Wood) remains closed with the gates locked for the moment until the situation there is dealt with. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
