Winner of many Britain in Bloom awards and well known for its characterful Market Place, interesting shops and popular eateries, Market Bosworth is a small market town that can trace its history back to a settlement in the Bronze Age. The Battle of Bosworth took place to the south of the town in the village of Upton in 1485. If you take a walk around the town you will find shields and Tudor roses as well as street nameplates decorated with Henry VII's dragon and Richard III's boar in recognition of the Battle. There are also three schools and three churches and with the Country Park, Water Park and Battlefield Line Railway within walking distance there is plenty to do for all ages.

The Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner is developing a new Police and Crime Plan which he hopes will reflect the issues that local people say are important to them, meeting local policing needs and expectations. As a first step an online public survey has been launched. The survey gets to the heart of policing issues, seeking opinion on matters such as police visibility, community safety and how to contact the police. More »
The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/B78HPFL and will close on 30 September 2016.
All members of the public are invited to participate. » Less

The Neighbourhood Plan identifies various aspirational projects for the parish including a town centre traffic scheme and construction of a safe footpath to the Water Park. The Parish Council has tirelessly petitioned Highways and the Borough Council on these matters and is pleased that some progress is now being made. Highways recently held a public consultation on additional double yellow lines on Barton Road, Station Road and Sutton Lane and it is hoped these will be painted soon. Meanwhile, Highways also recently confirmed that progress is being made with regard to constructing a safe footway to the Water Park. More on this will follow in due course. More »
