Welcome to the Ellastone Village website!
Do you object to the speeding traffic in Ellastone? Do you worry when crossing the road near the pub?

It will soon be time for the Poppy Collectors to visit all the houses in the Parish. This is a special year for remembrance being the centenary of the beginning of WW1 and we hope that you will give generously.
We need a collector for Wootton – could you spare the time to volunteer for this? David Rowe did this job for 10 years but sadly he died a few weeks ago.
For details please contact Hilda Tideswell on 324203 or Trilby Shaw on 300359.

All proceeds of this event are being donated to the Mayfield & Ellastone First Responders. Please come along and support a great course. Tickets £8
