PARISH HALL BOOKINGS
For Parish Hall bookings please contact the Benefice Administrator on email@example.com 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.

Garden Waste Collection Service
Reminder to renew garden waste collection service
Green fingered residents are reminded that they will need to renew their subscription to the garden waste collection service with Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council by 31 May. The new subscription charge will be £37.50 per year per bin, which equates to an increase of 10p per collection.
Residents who pay for the garden waste collection by direct debit do not need to do anything. Instead, the borough council will collect payment of £37.50 from bank accounts on 1 April and send a new sticker by mid-May. New stickers should be placed on bins as soon as they are received. More »
Anyone who does not pay by direct debit can renew their subscription from 1 April onwards. Customers are advised to ensure they do not renew later than 17 May to avoid disruptions to the service. This will also allow plenty of time for the new stickers to arrive.
Renewals for customers who do not pay by direct debit can be made from 1 April onwards; either online from by visiting www.hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk/gardenwaste, or you can call the council on 01455 23814. Payments can be made by credit or debit card.
Executive Member for Finance, Councillor Keith Lynch, said: "We have had to increase the price of the optional garden collection service due to inflation and other associated service cost rises. The new charge is still lower than other districts across the county.
"I still believe for this to be great value for a convenient, eco-friendly service."
For those who choose not to subscribe to the service, there are other options for disposing of garden waste including:
1. Composting at home: garden waste and other material can be recycled by purchasing a low-cost compost bin from www.getcomposting.com
2. Taking garden waste to a Leicestershire County Council Household Waste & Recycling Site. » Less
