Costock is a small village in a conservation area and therefore as a rural community forthcoming events in Costock and the surrounding area can be limited. The Village is situated close to East Leake, Rempstone and Keyworth all of which have regular events that Costock residents share and in many cases take an active part in. Costock has a primary school which works closely with the Church of England to provide educational opportunities for children in the village.
Social life in Costock rolls on at a nice steady pace, and our local organisations continue to provide a varied among of activity for residents.
The Women‘s Institute is popular and offers a wide range of subjects for members – and visitors – to enjoy at its regular meetings. The parish church is active and is one of the few in the district that has two ladies at its helm, as churchwardens, being Kath Owen and Gill Starmer. They organise a varying number of activities based on church life including the Village Open Day in June this year which was a tremendous success. There is usually an opportunity for those interested to assist the church with flower arranging, and a rota is maintained. And for those who perhaps feel they don ‘t have the flower arranging gene there is still the opportunity to help by providing seasonal flowers.
Whilst not in the village itself Costock residents have easy access to at least three events that are of high interest, one being the annual Rempstone Steam Rally and the two in neighbouring East Leake, in the form of their annual Carnival and the Christmas Lights Switch-on. the latter being in November.
