NWL Legal attended the Parish Fair on Tuesday, 27 September. The Parish Fair is an annual event organised by North West Leicestershire District Council attended by our local Parish/Town Councillors and Clerks. The fair provides an opportunity for the Clerks and Councillors to stop by and have a chat with different service areas of the district council and also attend some talks and demonstrations held by some of the teams. The last Parish Fair was in 2019 and has unfortunately been cancelled for the last 2 years so it was nice to have the event back up and running again.
Some of the workshops included a tour of the new Coalville and Whitwick Leisure Centre, a Waste Services vehicle demonstration in the car park and talks on anti-social behaviour, recruitment, resilience, enviro-crime and elections! Some of our Parish Council clients used the event as an opportunity to get an update on some of the matters they have instructed NWL Legal on.

Laurent Flinders (pictured left), Information Governance Officer also attended alongside Rebecca, having been with the council since March, this was her first event on behalf of the team.
