Daffodils on the A512

Daffodils on the A512 Daffodils on the A512

Every year the daffodils on the grass verges by the junctions of The Moor and Lower Moor Road and the A512 remind us that however wet and soggy or cold this year's winter is - spring is on it's way!

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.

The parish council is looking into the possibility of installing "smiley/frowny face" signs like the ones on the Rempstone Road going through Belton which seem quite effective.

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.
