The Village of Collingham has a vibrant mix of facilities, groups, activities and services which support both Collingham and the wider surrounding area.
The village is on the east bank of the old course of the River Trent, now called the Fleet; it is thought that it was around 1600 that the Trent changed course to its present position about 2 km away.
Collingham has a population of more than 2700 people (2011 Census) and benefits from having a range of shops and services including three churches, three pubs, a post office, medical centre, pharmacy, dentist, library and a primary school as well as train and bus services to Lincoln and Newark.
