PARISH HALL BOOKINGS

For Parish Hall bookings please contact the Benefice Administrator on admin@bosworthbenefice.org.uk or Tel: 01455 817255. Although the Parish Council is based in the building, the Parish Hall actually belongs to St Peter's Church and the full name is St Peter's Parish Church Hall.

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 Parish of Market Bosworth includes the village of Far Coton as well as the settlement of Market Bosworth. This website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search engine or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for.

Free Trees Scheme

This year Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council is giving away 27,000 trees as part of its declared climate emergency. These trees will absorb over 10,000 tonnes of carbon over the next 40 years (assuming they all survive).

Community groups and parish councils can apply for up to 20 trees and up to 30 metres of hedging and it is hoped that as many people as possible will be able to join the Borough Council and plant trees within the parishes and other community buildings to both fight climate change and support wildlife. More »

The scheme launches on 26 September and you will need to be able to collect your trees on the weekend of 26/27 November. Full details can be found at Sign up for our scheme | Free tree scheme | Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council (hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk)

It is recommended that you order your trees as soon as possible to avoid disappointment as demand is expected to be high.

The scheme is also open to all residents who live in the Borough (who can have a maximum of 2 trees and 30m of hedging). » Less
