2021 01 12 Parish Council meeting PRESS RELEASE


We regularly receive reports of dog fouling on the footpaths, playing field and around the plantation. Your Parish Council is determined to bring those responsible for the problem to account so that the Borough Council can initiate legal proceedings which can lead to a fine. Responsible dog owners and other residents are encouraged to report anyone not scooping the poop to Charnwood Borough Council on 01509 634564 or online www.charnwood.gov.uk/dogfoulingfaq. More »

It is very important that dog owners/walkers leave footpaths, verges, grazing fields and public areas clear of dog excrement by bagging it and disposing it appropriately. PLEASE PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG and if the dog waste bins are full, take it home. Please do not leave bagged waste or flick this in the Plantation, not only is this revolting, it affects all users including the volunteers who tirelessly take care of this village asset.


During 2020 the parish council established a register of volunteers covering all parts of Burton on the Wolds, to help people with things like shopping, prescriptions and a socially distanced chat or phone call. The latest lockdown means vulnerable neighbours are again being asked to shield, and others may need help because they are isolating or feel lonely.

We would like to extend the scheme to Cotes and Prestwold, and request new volunteers to register from all 3 villages in our parish by contacting the coordinator.

Anyone needing help from the volunteer's network can also contact the coordinator who will ask your local volunteer to get in touch.

Email: parish@andylawrence.co.uk or alternatively, telephone the Parish Council and leave a clear message on the answerphone. The coordinator will call you back.


The Parish Council has asked the police to carry out speed checks within the parish following speed initiative carried out in November 2020.


The Parish Council is pleased to report that there was no reported crime in Burton on the Wolds, Cotes & Prestwold during December 2020.


The next Parish Council meeting will take place virtually on Tuesday 2nd February 2021 at 7.30 p.m. unless advised otherwise and will be preceded by the Village Hall Management meeting at 7.00 p.m.
