The Parish Council has now ran out of its dog poo bag supply and will not be re-stocking them.

You are able to purchase these from most supermarkets or online retailers can deliver straight to your door. Nappy sacks make a great alternative.

Dog mess is unsightly and a health hazard. If you are a dog owner, you have a legal duty to clean up every time your dog messes in a public place. Please remember that your dog is your responsibility.

You may dispose of poo bags in any street bin.

Rural Coffee Connect has been travelling around rural Leicestershire and Rutland since 2019 popping up a safe and friendly space for people to enjoy a coffee, chat and build connections in their community. Initially funded by the National Lottery Community fund, Rural Coffee Connect was established as a project to tackle loneliness and isolation in rural communities. More »

Rural Coffee Connect has been so successful, it is no longer delivered as a stand alone project, but as a simple and effective concept underpinning the work of our charity and connecting people with a huge range of community activities, projects, advice, support and other services.

Everyone is welcome at Rural Coffee Connect and drinks are served completely free of charge. If you wish, you can make a donation to cover the cost of your coffee and to support our work.

Work.Live.Leicestershire (WiLL) helps people across rural Leicestershire back into work, training or job search.

We offer free job search support, volunteering, self employment support, online resources, CV writing, regular 1-2-1 mentoring and much more!

Contact our friendly team for more information

Spring/Summer opening times:

Anti-climb paint applied to park gates


As a result of anti-social behaviour, the tops of our park gates have been treated with anti-climb paint. This will cause damage to clothes and will be difficult to remove from hands, so please do not try to climb any of Frolesworth Road park entrance gates.
