Many people reading this will value the community we have here in Bottesford. As a village we are small enough to make it feel like a close and friendly place to live, and there are lots of activities going on for its size, for all age groups.

A community such as our requires people to give as well as take to enable it to succeed, and the number of people who volunteer their time to support local organisations is key to this success.

Many groups in the Village need our support, and just 1 or 2 hours a month can make a huge difference to these organisations and therefore
OUR community.

Examples of where
YOUR help is needed include:-

The Scouts - Scout leaders and helpers are needed to enable our scout groups to continue.

The Youth Club - Needs committee members and/or helpers who will give 1 or 2 hours a month to support the running and development of the club.

The Village Hall - Did you know that our Village Hall is nothing to do with the local council. It is a Charity set up by the people of the Village to provide a Village Hall. This charity needs more committee members to help develop the building for the next generation….more

If you can help one of these organisations then either contact them direct or use our contact form and it will be forwarded to them.

Bottesford Neighbourhood Plan

Stacks Image 1224
Bottesford Parish is a community of 3587 (2011 census) residents, at the Northern tip of Leicestershire. There are four villages which make up our parish: Bottesford, Easthorpe, Muston and Normanton.

The parish has a rich heritage and maintains many of the rural qualities that residents find so attractive and peaceful to live within. The parish is also innovative and forward-looking.

Hence the importance of the Neighbourhood Plan. This is a community-led initiative which will shape the way our four villages will look over the next 25 years. The Neighbourhood Plan is being developed by a team of volunteers who are consulting widely with as many residents, businesses and groups as possible.

They need to know what you want from our community – particularly with regard to where new housing and other buildings should be located. So please get involved. This web-site will provide you with all the details, and keep you fully informed with progress.

We look forward to working with you.
