HS2 route changes around Measham area

The HS2 route will cross the very north of Coleorton parish close to the A42. Other than the disruption while it's being built it is expected not to impact greatly on most Coleorton residents (except up near Lount close to the A42). The consultation on proposed route changes is closed and no changes are expected in Coleorton. However, there have been big changes and uncertainty about the route near Measham. MAPA (Measham, Appleby, Packington & Austrey) HS2 Action are concerned about the outcome and lack on proper consultation. They are holding a meeting on Tuesday 28 March 7.30 at Measham Leisure Centre. Read letter from the Chair of the action group and more about HS2 >>

Litterpick Saturday 25th March

Coleorton Litterpick 2017

A big THANK YOU to all the people who turned out for The Parish Spring Litterpick. A good job done with a lovely sunny day to complete the task. The picture shows just some of the dozens of bags of rubbish - mainly drinks cans and bottles and take-away food containers - collected by volunteers around the parish.

Cutting Back on Garden Crime

More advice from the Police, reminding us that now it's Spring we're out and about in the garden more - and so are thieves! Opportunistic thieves see open sheds and gardening equipment left out unattended as easy money. (Who buys all this stolen stuff I wonder?). Read their Cutting Back on Garden Crime poster >>.

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.
