A real welcome to Helpston, a delightful village with a wonderful rural and historic heritage.  Be part of it !

Welcome to the Helpston website. If you are new to the village or to this website its intention is to help residents and visitors find out about the amazing range of things that happen in this fantastic village. If you have events to publicise or suggestions to improve the website or just want to know more please contact us.

Helpston is a flourishing village between Peterborough and Stamford with a real sense of community. It was home to John Clare, the countryside poet, and his name and work are a proud part of our heritage. We have a primary school, numerous clubs and societies, and many local businesses. This web site is provided by the Parish Council to share information about the village and its community.

You can also find a library of photos of the village past and present and information about the wildlife and countryside around the village.

There are some suggested walks and of course plenty of links to information about John Clare – you can even listen to readings of his poems and sounds of the natural world.

If you have any suggestions to improve this site or would like to add information please contact us

I would like to thank the parish council for all their help in getting planning permission for the annex built on the side of my daughters house. I have at last moved in and I am being looked after very well. Unfortunately Tony didn’t survive to see it built but I know he would be happy that heather promised him she would look after me and heather and Martin have made me very welcome in the annex.
We have had many comments from villagers how wonderful the extension looks.
Betty butler.
