Hathern Parish Council provides your local services. We strive to make Hathern a better place to live, work and play. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.
Please note that the play equipment within the fenced area of Hathern Park is being repainted on the week commencing 16th September. As such, the play area will be closed for that week.
We took the decision to wait until the Summer Holidays were over to minimise disruption - we hope it will not cause too much of an inconvenience but can promise everything will look a lot better, to match the great new safety surface put down earlier in the year.

We have found out that Shepshed Waste Site will be closed from today, for 12 weeks.
Unfortunately this information didn't come from Leicestershire County Council, we're trying to find out why.
Apologies for the late notice!

Press release from Charnwood Borough Council:
Changes to bulky waste service confirmed
Changes to Charnwood Borough Council's bulky waste collection service have been approved.
The Council is one of only a handful of authorities in England to currently offer a free collection for some bulky items from people's doorsteps.
Currently, Charnwood residents can request from the Council three free bulky waste collections each year and only face a charge after exceeding that amount. More »
However, the Council's Cabinet has agreed to introduce a £20 charge for each collection for up to three items. Officers will also consider an exemption scheme for people experiencing exceptional hardship.
The Council will review the changes after six months and ensure promotion of alternative methods of collection to residents.
Cllr Leigh Harper-Davies, lead member for major contracts at the Council, said: "We must ensure we are operating as efficiently as possible and that means looking at alternative ways of funding services.
"The changes will help ensure we can maintain a high-quality, frontline service."
Cabinet approved the changes at a meeting on July 4.
The current bulky waste service costs around £105,000 to operate and introducing the charge is expected to generate around £60,000 a year.
The new charges are due to be introduced in October. » Less
