Burbage Parish Council is looking for a water pump to be fixed as a decorative feature in a planter outside the newsagent shop on Hinckley Road. The site is very close to where a working village pump used to stand and councillors are keen to install a decorative version as a nod to this part of the village heritage. Hinckley-based funeral directors G Seller & Co have offered to carry out the installation and to put up a plaque to explain its relevance. All that is needed now is a pump! Councillors are hoping to find a vintage one that stands about 3ft tall but extensive searches have so far proved pump-less. If anyone knows of a suitable pump for sale or donation please contact the parish office on 01455 637533 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Keen volunteers and community groups are invited to attend a free event which aims to promote volunteering opportunities in the borough.
'All about Volunteering', which has been organised by the Voluntary & Community Sector and Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, will be hosted at Green Towers, Richmond Park, Richmond road, Hinckley on Thursday 4 October from 10am to 3:30pm. The event is open to anyone who is interested in volunteering in the Hinckley and Bosworth area as well as voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations who are seeking volunteers. More »
The event will provide information about the range of funding opportunities available that VCS organisations can apply for, including a new fund specifically for small groups of volunteers or individuals to support their volunteering activities.
There will be exhibition stands and the chance to find out about volunteering opportunities and hear of the great work that is being delivered by current volunteers.
Council Leader, Cllr Mike Hall said "This event is not just for existing volunteers it is also for those who want to start volunteering for the first time and who need financial support and practical advice to help with setting up new community projects.
"I'm particularly keen to see more groups set up that help to improve local communities through creating projects that involve young people in active volunteering and community work.
"These events are always well attended and there will be lots of experienced volunteers for first timers to speak with."
"In addition you will hear about the plans for the introduction of a Hinckley & Bosworth Community Lottery, providing a way for VCS organisations to profile the great work they do, and raise additional funds all going to good causes."
Lunch and refreshments will be available to pre-booked attendees and Green Towers provides on-site parking.
If you would like to attend and/or have an exhibition stand, please call Next Generation on Tel. 01455 632984, or email email@example.com to book your place.
