Welcome to Huncote

Huncote Environment Awards 2015

We hope that you are sufficiently interested in your local environment to enter a nomination or two for this year's awards. Environmental developments of any type or size carried out in the parish in the last 12 months are eligible for consideration by the judges. The winner will receive a cup, which they will have for the year and £25 gardening vouchers and the runner-up will get £10 gardening vouchers.

May we suggest you spend a few minutes looking around your own immediate neighbourhood and then, if you can spare the time, extend your search to the rest of the village? You can, of course nominate yourself if you have good reason (or get a friend to do so).

We are not expecting to find major environmental achievements but there are many ways, either by accident or design, that ordinary people like us can enhance the local environment and improve the quality of life for those around us.

We list below SOME, but by no means all, of the individual or group efforts which could qualify for inclusion:

  • 'Jungle' garden or allotment restored to productive use;
  • Environmental project by an individual or organisation
  • Improvements in the street scene e.g. display of hanging baskets (not Parish Council), house or garage extensions;
  • The establishment of a wild flower garden;
  • Garden pond for aquatic wild life;
  • Any development to benefit elderly people, or the disabled;
  • Installation of solar panels or other means of energy saving;
  • Any permanent improvements by the local working quarries.

The competition will be judged by a panel and the Environment Cup and other awards will be presented at the Huncote Community Association Community Day at the Community Centre on Saturday, 28th November 2015 at which all residents of, and visitors to, Huncote are most welcome. Please leave a message on our Facebook Page, send us a tweet, e-mail us at huncotepc@hotmail.com or write us at Huncote Parish Council, c/o 3 Mountfield Road, Earl Shilton, Leicestershire, LE9 7LW, not later than TUESDAY 3rd NOVEMBER 2015, telling us who you nominate, their address, and why they should win.

More details of the Community Association Community Day will be sent out nearer the date, from the Community Association directly and at www.leicestershirevillages.com/huncote. Please contact Hilary on (0116) 286 3826 or email hmcomyn@googlemail.com for more details.

Budgeting for 2016/17

The Council is beginning it's due process of budgeting for the 2016/17 financial year and would like to hear suggestions of any projects or initiatives that members of the public believe the parish council ought to be involved in and any broad indications of expected costs if they are known.

If you would like to comment on in increase in services offered within the parish, please contact the Clerk before 25th November 2015 giving details of the services you would like to see and if you would object to an appropriate increase in parish council precept within your council tax.
