We have received some enquiries regarding what is happening regarding the former skate park area on the Recreation Ground.

You may recall we sent out a questionnaire with our Spring 2019 copy of the Great Glen Gazette asking the village 'What Should Replace the Skate Park?'

We received 78 completed surveys. A document is attached which shows the analysis of the results. The clear winner was the basketball court/football pitch hybrid which received 33 votes. More »

We then asked for quotes for a Multi Use Games Area. The plan for the 'MUGA' is shown in the photograph. Unfortunately progress has been slow due to Covid 19, but we are pleased to say that work will commence in the next couple of weeks. » Less

Life's safer when you know your neighbours. With more people looking out for unusual behaviour on your street, burglaries can be prevented.

More people out and about means burglary is expected to rise, which is why Leicestershire Police are launching a new campaign called Safety in Neighbours in partnership with the Home Office, to warn residents and provide practical tools to prevent burglary.
