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.

Garden Waste Service suspended 30 July - 5 August inclusive

Garden Waste Service suspended 30 July - 5 August inclusive

Garden Waste Service continues to be suspended for one week across Hinckley and Bosworth

Garden waste collections (brown lidded bin) in Hinckley and Bosworth are to be suspended for a further week as a result of rising numbers of waste drivers and crew told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, the national shortage of HGV driver's and a number of waste crew off sick.

The garden waste service will continue to be suspended from Friday 30 July to Thursday 5 August inclusive with plans to re-instate the service from Friday 6 August. More »

This move will hopefully ensure that all residential (black bin) and recycling (blue lidded bins) rounds will be completed in full as normal. Similar decisions are being taken by councils across the country faced with a similar position.

The annual fee charged for this service will be extended to cover the disruption. Each resident will receive an additional week added to their subscription service.

Residents are advised that the local recycling centres are open and can be visited without an appointment if they wish to dispose of any green waste.

Caroline Roffey, Head of Street Scene Services said: "The crews are working incredible hard in difficult times but we hope to be able to re-instate the green waste service from Friday 6 August. We are actively advertising for additional waste drivers and crew and would urge anyone interested in these posts to give our team a call on Tel. 01455 255959. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank everyone for their patience." » Less
