Funds have been raised for the Nepal Earthquake Appeal by shoppers in Barwell. Just over £65 was placed in a collection tin by customers of the Londis store on Kirby Road with Devanand Pandala, who runs the shop, rounding the figure up to £100.
Cllr Janice Richards, Mayor of Hinckley & Bosworth, and David Tredinnick MP today took part in the service to mark the unveiling of a memorial to the six men from Earl Shilton who fought in the Battle of Waterloo two hundred years ago.
Cllr Mike Hall has tonight received the endorsement of the Conservative group on Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, and will become Leader of the Authority when it gathers for its Annual Meeting on Tuesday 19th May. Cllr Kevin Morrell will be Deputy Leader.
David Tredinnick has been re-elected as Member of Parliament for Bosworth with a much increased majority as the Conservative Party defied all the predictions and formed a majority Government at Westminster.
