Peggs Green Rec

Play equipment at Peggs Green Recreation Ground

The Recreation Ground is open but the play area is still closed.

This is because some essential repairs are needed on the equipment. When that has been done the Parish Council will review re-opening in light of the then prevailing Covid guidelines.

We have taped off the equipment and put notices in place to protect you and others.

Please note that there are limited parking spaces on the car-park opposite the New Inn. The main car park area is owned by The New Inn opposite for use of their customers.

Police Survey

Leicestershire Police are inviting residents to complete a short survey.

This is an opportunity to give your opinion, say how the Police managed an incident that affected you or give them some suggestions for tackling crime in the area.

It's possible there are some settings we have mis-set or perhaps are not even aware of so to all you Facebook gurus out there, we're happy to receive your thoughts.

We look forward to being joined by many residents of our great community as members of the Facebook group.

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.

If you would like to contribute any item about Coleorton or surrounding areas or add details of your club, organisation or event (no charge) or have any suggestions for items on this website please email

Local businesses and services

Coleorton residents are an enterprising bunch: the latest Coleorton businesses listed in the local services directory include IT specialists, photographers and dog walkers. Email if you would like your local business listed (free of charge for Coleorton-based businesses or owners).
