Life in one of Nottinghamshire’s safest villages where children play ‘without trouble’

Residents of a Nottinghamshire village have praised its ‘close-knit’ nature after it was named as one of the safest areas in the county. Tollerton was ranked joint-lowest in terms of instances of antisocial behaviour across 2021/22, according to police figures.

The village, alongside other Rushcliffe areas such as Cropwell Bishop, Kinoulton and Keyworth North, recorded just 4.5 incidents per 1,000 residents. Rachel Hughes, who runs the Air Hostess pub in the centre of the village, said the tightness of its residents was the main reason.

“It’s a lovely area with lots of nice people, it’s a real massive community,” the 50-year-old told Nottinghamshire Live. “You see the kids out on the streets, it’s nice to see them on their bikes. You see a lot going round but not in a threatening way – there’s never any trouble.

“I think it’s because of the community we’re in, it’s very close-knit. Everybody knows everybody and if one of the kids was being naughty the parents would find out quickly. I feel safe in my little pub.”

Parma Somal, who has worked at the Tollerton Post Office in Bentinck Road for 25 years, said he has never had an instance of crime in his shop. “You see in some shops nowadays they happen every week, so we’re lucky,” said the 60-year-old. “We look after each other quite a lot.”

Bill and Rosemary Rettie, who have lived in the area for six years, said Tollerton had a “village feel”. Bill said: “Many people have been here most of their lives, there’s a lot of families here. There’s only one way in and one way out of Tollerton so that may be a factor. People can’t just come and wander about and leave quickly by vehicle.

Tollerton is surrounded by swathes of countryside, which Bill said doubled as a “positive thing” and something that made the village feel “vulnerable”. “It’s a balance,” he added.
