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.

If you want to report a maintenance problem with local roads or pathways (eg street lighting, flooding, potholes, fly-tipping) you should do this directly to Rutland County Council using their website or the fixmystreet link below.

However, if you want to know what's going on in Seaton and how we conduct village business, this website includes a wealth of information. 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.

Latest Update on Covid 19 Vaccinations in Rutland dated 14 Jan 2021

Although vaccine delivery remains erratic and unpredictable, Rutland Health Primary Care Network is making good progress on the first stages of the Rutland COVID Vaccination Programme which started on December 21st 2020.

All the residents of the 11 care homes looked after by Rutland Health PCN practices have now received their first doses of the COVID Vaccination. Many care home staff have also been vaccinated, and the remainder will be offered vaccination next week. Most of the care home staff have also received or been offered their first vaccination. More »

In addition, Rutland Health has also administered the first vaccination to just over two thirds of its patients who are aged over 80, and some of the frontline health and care staff who have contact with multiple older adults.

Full details of their progress and next steps are set out in the Rutland Health website which you can access using the weblink below. However, their key message at the moment is please do not contact your practice.

If you are aged over 80 and have not yet received a call you will be contacted within the next 2 weeks. If you miss a call they will contact you again. Where necessary, they will also use other ways of contacting patients to complete the priority 1 and 2 cohorts. » Less

Seaton Playing Fields will be Closed for Refurbishment 14-29 Jan 2021

Seaton Playing Fields will be Closed for Refurbishment 14-29 Jan 2021

The Seaton Playing Fields will be closed for up to 2 weeks from 14 Jan 2021 to allow Wicksteed access to install new equipment.

Seaton Parish Council apologises for any inconvenience but hopes local families will enjoy the improved facilities, including a new all metal 30M zip wire; a 1.8M rotating climbing web; and, the relocation and re-siting of the 4 infant springers at a better height.

These changes are designed to improve the facilities for all children, including a wider range of facilities for older children. A petanque pitch will also be provided in the new future - though it may be some time before Covid restrictions allow us to use it. More »

These improvements have been made possible by fundraising during Covid by the Seaton Good Neighbours and generous grants from the Augean Community Fund and the Rutland County Council Healthy Rutland Support Grant initiative.

Seaton Parish Council would like to thank everyone involved for their support. We could not have done it without them! » Less
