Pride of the Borough first met in 2003, and formed as a constituted group in 2004. We have 3 main aims:
to improve the local environment of Oadby, Wigston and South Wigston
to work with Oadby and Wigston Borough Council to support the
Borough's entry into East Midlands in Bloom
to encourage and support community activities that will increase pride in our Borough
The group is made up of individuals, Friends of Parks, Civic Societies, Community Action groups, neighbourhood groups, Councillors and council officers who all work together to encourage people to take a pride in our Borough.
We meet regularly throughout the year to organise not only the East Midlands in Bloom entry but also floral display competitions, We also support other environment based community activities.
We are all volunteers and are always looking for more like minded people to join us. On the 3rd Saturday of every month there is a Monthly Task Force work morning and additional help is always appreciated, further details here.
Meetings are normally held on the second Monday of each month, unless that falls on a bank holiday. There is no meeting in August. Dates of the meetings are available here.
