Cross Green 2010
Welcome to Rothley on the edge of the Charnwood Forest and a village full of history. From the Chapel of the Knights Templar to the village with the most cruck cottages in Leicestershire you will find much to interest you in our website. If you are new to the village or seeking information we hope that you enjoy our welcome, shops and history.
LOCAL NEWS OCTOBER 2015
YOUR VILLAGE WEBSITE IS UNDER THREAT BUT GOOD NEWS IS ON THE HORIZON
As part of the Leicestershire County Council cuts there will no longer be funding and support for the Rothley village website after July 2016. This applies to all villages across the county. With the cuts to many of our libraries our villages are losing their heart and we must do all we can to keep Rothley active in many directions.
Looking back over the past 10 years of administering and editing this website I have seen the loss of groups that supported this village including the W. I., the Coffee Pot Bar, the Rothley Round Up and the diminishing membership of others. With the increase in the population of Rothley you would expect everything to flourish and new groups to emerge but this is not so. When the older active members of our community decide to call it a day then who will carry on?
The good news is that we have an excellent chance of keeping our library open with volunteers but this can only keep flourishing with a strong,determined, hard-working committee such as we have now.
But what about your website that reaches all over the world? I am pleased to report that the news is optimistic. Rothley Parish Council is also losing its support from LCC so we will be looking at a joint website in good time for summer 2016.
In the meantime, enjoy the many pages about Rothley past and present. The future, we hope, will be just as enjoyable.
