Seaton is a small rural village in Rutland, which is the smallest county in England. The village is located in the East Midlands, about 100 mile north of London, but close to many historical towns such as Uppingham, Oakham and Stamford, and within easy each of local cities such as Leicester, Peterborough and Cambridge. It is also just a stone's throw from Rutland Water and Eyebrook Reservoir which offer fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling, sailing, trout fishing and bird watching. Put simply, it's a great place to live!

Most of your local services are provided by Rutland County Council which is based in nearby Oakham, but Seaton Parish Council works closely with them to represent local views so that we can make Rutland, and Seaton in particular, an even better place to live, work and play.

Our website includes a wealth of information about what's on in the village and how we conduct our business. Please use the search facilities or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require, or would like to add something to the site, then please contact us. We are here to help.

Voluntary Action Rutland - Social Car and Community Transport Scheme

Voluntary Action Rutland - Social Car and Community Transport Scheme

Rutland County Council recently visited Seaton to explain what transport services they can provide. There are 2 schemes.

The first is the CallCollect Scheme where any residents can register and order a minibus to take them from their home to or from Stamford. The service operates from 7.00am until 7.00pm each weekday and from 7.30am until 6.30pm on Saturdays. There is no service on Sundays.

There is a small charge for each CallCollect trip, but you can buy a book of 10 tickets for £13.00. Moreover, people with concessionary bus passes may travel free on Saturdays and after 09.30 hours during weekdays. More »

The second scheme is the provided by Voluntary Action Rutland and provides Volunteer Drivers who use their own vehicles to help people who are isolated, frail, elderly or disabled. This can be used for shopping, medical or dental appointments, social visits etc. And, the drivers will pick up clients, take them to their appointments and wait a reasonable time, and then bring them home. Service users are expected to pay a contribution to the costs but this is based on a set tariff and is very reasonable.

Volunteer Drivers can be booked by calling 01572 724705 at least 7 days in advance.

Full details of both schemes are set out on the Voluntary Action Website which is shown as a Useful Link in the Community Section of the SeatonRutland website. » Less
