Village Carnival 9th June


Preparations are well underway for this year's Carnival and Parade.

To assist the smooth running of the event can we please ask residents to do all they can to keep the roads in the village clear and avoid congestion on Saturday June 9th, especially around the time of the Parade which starts at 12 noon for a maximum of half an hour.

Some suggested ideas to help us! More »

Move cars off the road where possible. Ask to park on a friends drive for the day. Encourage visitors to use additional car parking areas at Earl Shilton Road and Croft Road (opposite the Market Garden). Walk to the event. Car share.

Please leave the roads clear for emergency services and buses.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. » Less
