After 29 years of service as a Parish Councillor, Rachael Saunders has stepped down from the Parish Council. During this time, Mrs Saunders has served as Chairman and been a longstanding representative on the Playing Field Association; she will remain a part of the PFA and continue to support the village in other ways.

School Games Cycle Events
The School Games are coming to Loughborough in September and they have chosen our area for the cycling events. The road races will take place on Friday 2nd September and Sunday 4th September on a circular route starting on Melton Road, entering Burton on the Wolds, up Barrow Road and out through Walton on the Wolds before heading up to Six Hills and back on Melton Road (B676). Due to the age of the participants the roads have to be closed and so no vehicles will be allowed on the route from 8am until approximately 2:45pm on both of these days. The organisers of the School Games are working closely with Leicestershire County Council and will be delivering information to residents' homes. If you are concerned about the impact of this closure please contact the clerk and she will put you in touch with the organisers.

New Bin at Towles Fields
The Parish Council have agreed to purchase a new large bin for Towles Fields, the bin will be located by the car park and will replace the small, broken, dog waste bin on the wall at the end of the pavilion. The new bin will be a dual purpose bin; wrapped dog waste can be placed in this bin (and in any other bin), so please use the bin for both dog waste and litter and help keep our car park, playing field and woodland free from litter.

Press Release from the Parish Council Meeting on 7 June 2016

New Speed Indicator Device
The Parish Council has ordered a Speed Indicator Device to replace the Vehicle Activated Sign currently in place on Melton Road, Burton on the Wolds. The new sign will display the actual speed that vehicles are travelling at and will be similar in design to those at Bradmore and elsewhere in Nottinghamshire. For many years the County Council had not permitted the use of these signs in the County, but have now agreed that we can purchase one. The new sign will be installed in six to eight weeks. More »

New Planters
The Parish Council have ordered new planters which will replace the existing ones around the parish. The old planters have become damaged over time and have reached the end of their life. The new planters will be made of hardwearing accoya wood and will continue to brighten up the area with lovely floral displays. Thank you to Robert Shields for all of his work planting and maintaining them.
