Vena Jacques

It is with great sadness that the parish council has learned of the death of Vena Jacques.
Vena was a lifelong resident of Coleorton who donated the Bakehouse and garden to the parish council to ensure this lovely piece of Coleorton’s history is available for all the residents of the village to enjoy.
RIP Vena and thank you for all you did for the village.

Coleorton Mobile Post Office Van

(Coleorton Post Office Outreach Service)

The mobile post office van at Beaumont Green has been unavailable for a few weeks. Fiona, the parish clerk, contacted the post office outreach service and they have responded as follows:

“I am very sorry to advise that the outreach service provided by our core postmaster at Linton Post Office is currently unavailable. My enquiries have revealed that the van is currently off the road due to mechanical and electrical issues. Unfortunately the issues with the van are more involved than first anticipated, however I can assure you that we are working very hard to resolve the problems faced and resume the service to the community as quickly as possible.

Please pass on my sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused to the community at this time.”

If we hear any more from the outreach service we will post it here and on our Facebook page

Another little tidy up job …..

Another little tidy up job …..

Another little tidy up job in the parish. Demolition experts Caroline and Ann dismantled the rotting planter opposite The George on the A512. It used to be planted up and looked after by some lovely ladies but given the speed of the traffic on that road it’s very sensible that we give it over to the contractor who will be installing the window boxes around the parish very soon. Thought it would be a good idea to give the sign a scrub and polish as well!

East Midlands Airport Noise Action Plan

East Midlands Airport is consulting on its 5-year Noise Action Plan and is seeking your views to help shape the plan. The newsletter (see link below) gives you more information about the plan. The airport is committed to minimising the impact of airport operations on neighbouring communities. The plan includes a range of actions and measures to reduce or mitigate the impact of aircraft noise to the communities.

The Draft Noise Action Plan covers the period from 2024 to 2028 and builds on previous Noise Action Plans, which set out how the airport will manage the effects and impact of aircraft noise and operations on communities living around the airport.

The Noise Action Plan consultation closes on Monday 31st July 2023. Please ensure that you submit your feedback by then.

You can find out more about the Noise Action Plan, including copies of the current active Noise Action Plan, the draft Noise Action Plan for 2024-2028 and an informational video on the website here: Noise Action Plan | East Midlands Airport
