Projects and Community Work in our Parish


The parish council strives to communicate with members of the public in as many ways as possible.  Some projects which have been introduced following consultations are as follows:-

Men in Sheds Project

Men in Sheds, a project originally launched by Age UK, sees men aged 60 and over meet and socialise while learning woodwork skills and renovating old furniture.

                                                                                                                                                         Men in sheds 1                                                                  Horninglow and Eton Parish Council has now launched a Men in Sheds project in a shipping container in St Luke’s Park for both men and women  over 50 years old, feeling lonely and who would like to learn woodwork.

Councillor Clive Keen, chairman of Horninglow and Eton Parish Council is the organiser of the Men in Sheds project.Men in sheds 2

Horninglow and Eton Action on Loneliness 

A Scheme aimed at reducing loneliness in Burton is still looking for people who would benefit from a weekly phone call.

The Good Neighbour Scheme by Horninglow and Eton Parish Council aims to befriend those who are lonely or feel isolated because they are unable to get out of their homes.

The scheme is being piloted in the Harper Avenue area but if it is success then the council plans to extend it across the whole parish.

The First “Burton Diddy Charity Gala” – 2014

Burton Diddy Charity Gala 2014 the First

Burton Amateur Swimming Club hosted the first Diddy Charity Gala Shield Event, which will be competed for on an annual basis.

Swadlincote Dolphins and Etwall Eagles Swimming Club were invited to compete, along with Burton. All three clubs entered two teams, to make up a six team event.
The event was supported magnificently by the competing clubs and supporters alike, with invited guests thoroughly enjoying the occasion, including representatives from Anslow, Branston, Horninglow & Eton, Rolleston, Stretton and Outwoods Parish Councils, along with the main sponsors for the evening, Murray’s Independent Funeral Directors.
This gala was also supported by Branston Golf & Country Club, Asda in Burton, Dains Accountants, TAG Sports and Proswimwear.

The main benefactor from the gala were the Burton Upon Trent Rotary Club, with a donation of £350.00 coming from Burton ASC.
Burton sent out two teams, the “Burton Barracudas” and the “Burton Bluefins.” Both teams consisting of 9, 10, 11 and 12 year old swimmers, some with a wealth of competitive experience and some with very little, competing at their first gala. The whole event was competed for in a true sporting, yet very competitive manner and all the swimmers were a huge credit to their coaches and clubs.

A huge thank-you to Craig Day for organising the event, with a whole heap of help from willing volunteers on the night.
Thanks also goes to our sponsors on the night to help make the event a success.

Horninglow Green

The Parish Council  purchased a small piece of land  on the corner of Horninglow Road and Dover Road.    

The Council decided to purchase this land to prevent any builder purchasing the land for housing.

Since purchasing the land, the council have installed a bench and path which local residents use as a resting area after walking up Horninglow Road.
