Sutton Bonington Local History

Richard Gretton is a member of the Midland Railway Society and currently looking into the history of Kegworth station. He has been in touch with the Kegworth Heritage Centre but is now widening his research base.

He is trying to find as many photographs of Kegworth station as possible. Secondly, he is also trying to find a copy of a DVD produced by Jon A Jones titled 'The Angela Line' which covers the mineral railway that ran from Kegworth to Kingston on Soar. More »

If you are able to provide any useful contacts he would be extremely grateful as his ultimate aim is to publish in the Midland Railway Society Journal the history of Kegworth station, which he has found in his initial research has some fascinating events to record.

Social media

In November we decided to make a Facebook page to represent the parish council. We went live on the 14th November and since then have produced 13 posts and have covered the development on Park Lane, Flooding, Diamond Wood, Covid and Snow/Gritting.

Our highest engagement, which was the development post, reached 1,800 people in total. This was down the the number of comments and shares it received by the community. More »

Going forward we aim to highlight key aspects of what the Parish Council are doing, details will also be available on the parish council website. » Less
