Exton Green in the snow
Welcome to the website for Exton village and Exton Parish Council.
Exton is one of the most beautiful villages in Rutland with an ancient village green at its heart, around it stand the eighteenth century Fox and Hounds pub and a number of lovely old cottages.
On this site you will find information about Exton Parish Council together with pages on the history of the village, the Parish Church and other useful information about the village and the surrounding area.
If you have an item of news or photos to put on the site please email Paul Taylor
We are always looking for pictures of Exton village and Exton events for our gallery and the best ones will be placed on our home page.
Also if you have any historical pictures we could publish please pass them on. Look at the latest additions in the Gallery.
If you wish to leave feedback or comment on our website please go to the Guestbook page.
Exton Tree of Love and Remembrance 2013
Exton Tree of Love and Remembrance
This Christmas we again hope to set up a Christmas tree outside the Fox and Hounds as a Tree of Love and Remembrance. Just as last year the tree will be lit with white lights and we are asking local people to make a minimum donation of £3.00 to sponsor a light in memory of a loved one. This could be a family member, friend or even a pet. Any profits raised will go towards the funds of Villagers for Exton Church and Loros (the Leicestershire and Rutland Organisation for the Relief of suffering – hospice care). We would welcome donations from anyone in the community whether they have a religious faith or not. We already have the lights from last year and might have assistance with obtaining the tree. A Book of Remembrance will be available for donors to record a message of remembrance for their loved one. We hope this book will be available for anyone to inspect in the Parish Church for the remainder of the year.
Anyone interested in making a donation please complete the form included in this newsletter and return it to Jo Downton as soon as possible. Additional forms will also be available from the Fox and Hounds.
We plan to switch on the lights at the Exton and Greetham School children's carol service onFriday 6th December at 6.00 pm on the Green, so would appreciate donations before that date. We are grateful for the support of the Fox and Hound's and the school in enabling this event to take place.
