New benches have been installed across the parish following a survey to find people's preferred seating sites.
A decorative commemorative bench has been placed near the village War Memorial, to match one already there, and a second commemorative version, featuring white doves of peace, has replaced an older, plain bench outside shops on Hinckley Road, facing St Catherine's Church.
Half of the cost of the two commemorative benches is being covered by a grant from Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council's Environmental Improvement Programme. More »
A new bench has replaced a worn-out seat at the bottom of Windsor Street and another new one has been put in Brookside Park off Farm Road, to replace one that was removed some time ago.
The siting of this bench and others being planned across the parish was prompted by responses received to a bench and bin survey launched in the Parish Council's March 2018 newsletter.
A new, covered waste bin has been installed close to the new bench on Hinckley Road, where it is also planned to make a decorative feature of a large planter, as part of a Parish Council street scene improvement project. » Less

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
