In December 2010 the long established village shop and post office became a community shop with a legal structure based on the Plunkett model rules. In February 2011 it was featured on an edition of the BBC Countryfile programme focusing on Worcestershire. A tea room was opened during celebrations of the first anniversary of the community shop in December 2011.
The village hall & playing fields are on the northern edge of the village.
The village school is now Bowbrook House School, an independent day school.
To the north of Peopleton the track to White Ladies Aston fords Bow Brook at Barrels Bridge.
After the extensive floods in 2007 when a quarter of the houses in Peopleton were flooded, Peopleton Parish Council raised money for a drainage system to reduce the effects of any future flooding.
