Flower box at Peggs GreenImproving our Parish

Following suggestions from parishioners who attended the council meetings earlier in the year, the Parish Council have ordered flower boxes to be situated on each of the Coleorton village signs, in addition the the ones that thw WI so generously look after. The new flower boxes certainly brighten up the environment and because they are being maintained and watered by a contractor they are still blooming despite the heat and drought.

Coleorton Parish Council would like to hear of any other ideas for improvements around the parish (bearing in mind that the Parish Council has some limits on what it can get involved with). Send your suggestions to and they will be considered at the next council meeting.

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
