Local Neighbourhood Communication Website - Nextdoor

Quite a few people in the vallage have been using a website called "Nextdoor". This provides a way of getting information out to village residents quickly and to get feedback. If you would like to join the Nextdoor community you can go to the website and join in.  This does not replace the village website "www.orletonvillage.co.uk" because the village website is a repository of information about the village that can also be read by non-residents. Nextdoor is more like a Facebook website.

 

About Orleton Village

The lovely 13th Century, Norman, St George’s Church is situated at one end of the village and the churchyard provides a tranquil oasis from which to view the beautiful surrounding countryside.

It is a thriving, vibrant community with a Shop/Post Office, a Primary School, a Golf Society, two pubs, a Doctor’s Surgery and a very well equipped Village Hall which is home to a variety of clubs and societies including a Youth Club, OGGLE (an amateur dramatic group), Evergreens (for older residents of the village), Table Tennis Club, Gardening Club and many more.

There is a children’s playground beside the Village Hall making it an excellent venue for children’s parties.

The village has excellent public transport links, via the 490 bus to Ludlow, Leominster and Hereford and is close to the Mortimer Trail, which runs through nearby Mortimer Forest, attracting walkers and cyclists to the area. Tourists are catered for with a number of bed & breakfasts, self catering holiday cottages and caravan parks situated within and around the village.

There are a variety of events held within the village which regularly bring different parts of the community together, from pub quizzes at The Boot to the annual Christmas Dinner for Evergreens at the Village Hall. There are both adult and junior football teams who regularly train and play on the Recreation Ground.

Orleton combines the charm of a traditional English village with the facilities a modern community needs. Agriculture and tourism are the predominant local industries but for a small village there are a lot of entrepreneurs, businesses and artistic people to be found. See the Business Directory for more details.
