Coatesville Today

Coatesville is full of delight with its friendly atmosphere and tranquil setting.

Today it is a vibrant community with a wonderful rural school, still holding its annual agricultural day despite the city closing in. The school and community pool is an enormous asset and the community hall has been wonderfully restored and is lovingly maintained. 

The hall is a centre not only for community activity (the market, Garden Club, Womens' Institute, scouts and cubs) but also a popular venue for weddings and parties.

The market which is held on the first Sunday each month plus a twilight market in December has proved to be extremely popular, not only with locals but also with visitors coming from far and wide.

Coatesville has its own village centre with garage and shops, a real estate agent, two cafes and a beautiful public reserve. It is a delight to live here.

Some Attractions

Coatesville Womens' Institute (CWI)

CWI hold a Christmas dinner event on the first Thursday in December.  Door sales go to support the cause that CWI has adopted each year while proceeds of the box auction go to CWI's other ongoing charity work.

Coatesville Markets

The Coatesville Market is held on  the first Sunday of every month (except January) rain, hail or shine.  Coateville Market has been so popular that mainly it shines.  The market hours are 10:00am until 2:00pm.

A twilight market is also held on the third Sunday of December from 2:00pm until 7:00pm.  Bring along your picnic mat and a bottle of wine and enjoy the food available from the stallholders.
