Plumtree Plaque Unveiling
Following September 2018’s Tour of Britain cycle race, Plumtree was voted one of the Best Dressed Villages in Nottinghamshire and awarded a commemorative plaque.
The plaque was fixed to the Burnside Memorial Hall and was unveiled at a ceremony organised by Plumtree Parish Council. The unveiling took place on Friday May 10th 2019 and was attended by civic dignitaries, and pupils from Plumtree School who had been involved in decorating the village for the event.
Following the ceremony refreshments were served inside the Hall.

St Mary’s Church Annual Report
St Mary’s Church, Plumtree held its Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) on April 30th, at which the 2018 Church Annual Report was presented for discussion.
The purpose of the Church Annual Report is to demonstrate how Saint Mary’s Church (as a charity) has furthered the PCC's aims for the public benefit requirement through pastoral ministry and mission outreach.
The report is of interest to all parishioners; not only worshiping members of the congregation, but also to those outside, and on the fringes.
For technical reasons it isn’t possible to put the report on this website, but copies are available from Kate Macfarlane, St Mary’s PCC Secretary, via this link to the Plumtree Church website.
Plumtree 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; a popular village hall; a pub called The Griffin Inn (which is currently closed for refurbishment and will, hopefully, re-open again in 2019); a premier league cricket team; and the award-winning Perkins Bar & Bistro and Carriage Hall.
- 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.
