Plumtree Village Event Questionnaire

There was a fantastic turnout for Saturday’s 'Meet & Greet' event at the Burnside Hall.  A wide cross-section of Plumtree residents took the opportunity to get to know each other better, and were united with a common purpose of planning future social events for the village.

However if you couldn’t make the event, or didn't complete a form on the day, you can download the Plumtree village event questionnaire.  This is a PDF document (best viewed on a PC with Adobe Acrobat Reader) which you can fill in and email to the village events organisers.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Website maintenance [click for details]

Website maintenance

The Plumtree Church section of the Plumtree Village website (this website) now contains so much information that it has been decided to set up a separate Plumtree Church website.  This has been set in progress, and we're currently moving the bulk of the Church information to the new website.

The Church website should go live by the end of October; however until this happens, we'll have to keep maintenance activities on the Village website to a minimum.

However, once it's up and running, the Church website will be maintained by a church team and normal service will be resumed to the Village website.

Plumtree Village

old map showing plumtreePlumtree is a small village with a population of around 200, located 5 miles (8 km) south-east of Nottingham, just off the A606 between Tollerton and Keyworth. Its population has remained fairly constant during its transition from an agricultural village to a residential one.

It features a thriving church dedicated to St Mary the Virgin; a popular village hall; a pub called The Griffin Inn (which is now, sadly, closed and its future is uncertain); a premier league cricket team; and the award-winning Perkins Bar & Bistro and Carriage Hall.

This Website

  • to publicise forthcoming events of interest to local residents;
  • to provide a platform to showcase Plumtree’s social history;
  • to describe local amenities for people visiting the area or thinking of moving to the village.

It is complementary to the existing Plumtree Parish Council website, see below.
