If you feel that you have an eye for a good photograph and would like to see one of you photographs on the website please send it in to the clerk with your name and contact details. The image needs to be representative of the parish. Good luck.

Bottesford Community Library opened in October 2015

The village library is now run by the Bottesford Community Library Association, a registered charity. The people who work there are all volunteers who are giving up their time to provide this valuable service for the community. If you would like to join us do get in touch.

As a charity we need funds to keep the lights on. You can support us by becoming a 'Friend of the Library' and making a regular amount, giving us a donation via our MyDonate page, or remember us when you buy online using Easy Fundraising. To find out more about the library go to our website: www.bottesfordcommunitylibrary.org.uk or our Facebook page.

Speed Camera data now available

We now have the speed-camera data which we have downloaded from our mobile-vehicle activated speed camera (MVAS).

The MVAS has been positioned at the south end of Belvoir Road, monitoring all traffic heading into Bottesford.

Top speed 68 mph recorded at 22.21 hours on the 8th Feb 2014. This is incredibly dangerous and could result in the driver facing a £1,000 fine and a driving ban.
