Welcome to Greetham, Rutland
Welcome to Greetham, Rutland.
Greetham is a rural village situated in the north of Rutland, England's smallest county. It is some six miles from Oakham, the county seat and very close to Rutland Water which is internationally recognised as a globally important wetland site. The village is a mixture of stone cottages, several thatched cottages, converted barns and modern detached houses. It has a population of 650.
Despite its small size, it has a very active community with a warm and friendly atmosphere. In addition to three excellent pubs, village shop, a premier golf course nearby and a thriving community centre.
Each week, there is a "Meet'em in Greetham Cafe" cafe in the Community Centre at 10am on Thursday. All welcome. Click this link to see more.

Alan Winterton and Margaret Winterton
Are leaving Greetham!
Alan has lived and worked in Greetham for 57 years and Margaret for the last 36 years.
Having done so much in this village for the businesses and the people who live here, we at Greetham Village Shop are doing a collection for them and a tin and cards for everyone to put into is in the shop now.
They are a truly amazing couple and I, along with so many of you are going to miss them dearly and would love to give them something fantastic to remember us all by and to thank them from the whole village for everything they have done and given of themselves to this village.
I also intend to make them a memories book so any contributions or photos you would like to send me of your memories and stories for, and of Margaret and Alan, would be gratefully appreciated.
