Welcome to Siddington
Cirencester, Gloucestershire

 

Siddington is a thriving community south of Cirencester. There is something for everyone – clubs to join, as well as a wonderful pub and an active church. We are one of the few villages lucky enough to have a shop and Post Office ready to meet all your needs.

 

The whole village turns out for our big events, from summer fetes to carol singing, and from the annual Grow and Show to quiz nights in the Village Hall. We love the countryside around our homes. Many of us enjoy walking through the meadows and along the canal path and the banks of the River Churn.

 

Take a look at our events listings and you will see that some weeks, you could be doing something three nights a week without even getting in your car. In fact, with the shop, post office and pub within walking distance, some villagers manage perfectly well without transport. If they want to get to Cirencester, Cheltenham or Swindon, they simply jump on a bus.

 

We are fortunate enough to have our own village primary school and be in the catchment area for two highly acclaimed secondary schools and a top-class sixth form college. Our children also benefit from wide open spaces, a huge field and a lovely play area.

 

We are continually looking for ways to improve our village. In 2010, Siddington won the prestigious Healthy and Active Community Award at the GRCC Vibrant Village Award.

 

We are pleased to announce that we now have superfast rural broadband in Siddington, delivered by Gigaclear

 

Rosie Rumble Award 2017

Every year, we celebrate the people who have contributed to Siddington village life. Following the death of Chris Rumble a year ago, Rosie's family would like to continue to present this award in honour of them both. They would like to involve all the village in choosing a worthy recipient this year, by asking residents to vote for an individual who they feel is particularly supportive of village organisations or an unsung hero that helps others in the Siddington community.

 

To do this, there will be a simple voting form in the October edition of the Village News. The winner will be presented with the award and a small cheque at a presentation in the community rooms in November. So, think about who you would like to vote for and watch this space.
