    There was something for everyone, with music from tribute band Kazabian, a Baby Big Top Circus, a Wibbly Wobbly Cycle Track, a Blackadder Goes Forth play and a performance from the king of rock and roll himself - an Elvis tribute act - to round off a fantastic day.   

    Councillor Alison Smith MBE, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community Services at North West Leicestershire District Council, said: “It was a wonderful weekend for everyone who was involved and for the thousands of people who attended. It was a great atmosphere across both days and the people of Coalville turned out in numbers and really supported these events.

  • What are you doing during the summer holidays?

    An annual campaign to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer has begun.

    With the summer upon us, Leicestershire’s Antisocial Behaviour Delivery Group, which is made up of a range of organisations including Leicester City, Leicestershire County and Rutland County councils, the police and seven district authorities, is encouraging people to enjoy themselves but also be considerate to those around them.

    As part of the safer summer campaign they have contacted all schools across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland asking that pupils consider their behaviour and act responsibly whilst on holiday.

    The Force has also gathered information about local activities for young people which are taking place in various locations across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland during the summer holidays. That information is now available on: www.beatsafe.co.uk

    Neighbourhood officers, local councils and Leicestershire Youth Offending Service, are just some of the many organisations working together to run events in the city and county.

    Superintendent Mark Newcombe, the Force’s lead on antisocial behaviour, said: “We want adults and young people to work together to enjoy the summer season by respecting and tolerating each other regardless of their age or background.

    “It is important that residents consider how their actions will affect others.”

    Joe Orson, Leicestershire County Council cabinet member for safer communities, said: “During this time of year there is an increase in reports of antisocial behaviour. Partners will be using Twitter to provide advice and tips to raise awareness of how people can stay safe, have fun but at the same time reminding them to be mindful of others.”

    People can follow the campaign on Twitter, @leicspolice and by using the hash tag #safersummerLLR

    Report antisocial behaviour by calling 101 or by contacting your local district or borough council.

    Their top tips for a safer summer include:

    • drink safe and stay safe

    • be tolerant of young people who also want to enjoy the summer

    • be considerate, if you’re planning an event or party

    • if you’re having a BBQ think safety first
