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.

The Charles Tryon Charitable Trust invites Applications for Small Grants

The Charles Tryon Trust Charity:

In the early 18th century a legacy was bequeathed by Charles Tryon for the benefit of the residents of Seaton and Thorpe by Water.

Residents, who may be in need of assistance, may therefore apply to the trustees for a grant. Alternatively, if a resident of the parish is known by someone to be in difficulty, then that friend may make an approach to the trustees on behalf of the resident. More »

In addition, all students embarking on a full-time course of further education are entitled to a grant.

Applications may be submitted at any time, but are particularly encouraged for consideration at the annual trustees' meeting which takes place in November each year.

The next meeting of the Trust will be held on Wednesday 18 Nov 2020.

Anyone wishing to apply may contact the Chair of the Trust, The Reverend Canon Jane Baxter on 01572 822717. All requests will be treated in strict confidence. » Less

Have You Signed up Yet to Receive the Latest Village News by Email?

During the last few years, Babs Gregory was kind enough to allow the Parish Council, the Village Hall and others to use her Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) list of email addresses to let people in the village know about forthcoming events, lost pets and the like. However, recent changes in the law on General Data Protection mean that this is no longer possible as addresses and other personal data can now only be used for the specific purpose for which they have been gathered. More »

Babs will continue to use the NHW list of contacts for its original purpose, but Helen Coop (who is Chair of the Village Hall Committee) has agreed to set up a separate list of email addresses of Seaton residents; this will be used to share details of local issues and events, such as the quick email Helen sent out this week to remind us that Main Street was going to be closed for 2 days of drainage works.

Having a village network for the quick distribution of short messages was really helpful during the Covid 19 Pandemic. You are therefore encouraged to email Helen Coop at seatonrutland@gmail.com if you live in Seaton and would like your email address added to this distribution list. You can remove it at any time if you no longer want to be included. » Less
