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.


This year's Rosie Rumble Local Community Services Award went to Chris Wright and Lucy Heard, who were licensees of The Greyhound until very recently.


Chris and Lucy supported many Siddington groups and events in the three years that they were at The Greyhound and they worked hard to make it a thriving village pub and community hub. Sadly they have now moved on, as Chris has taken on a new role as Retail Training Manager for Wadworths Brewery.
