Climbing Wall

Following its popularity last year, we have again hired the climbing wall from the Outdoor Learning Centre at Beaumanor Hall.

This is a free attraction, thanks to sponsorship by The Melton Building Society, and if you can fit in the harness you can have a go – if you’re feeling brave enough!

‘The Wall’ will be sited on High Street outside Subway.

Classic Car Show

With so many people enjoying the regular classic car displays in the town centre we thought we’d give the owners of these beautiful vehicles another opportunity to show them off and have invited them to join us at our own event.

Entry is free, there’s no need to register but car owners wishing to participate are required to be parked up at the top of Sherrard Street by 10.00am latest.

Road closures will be in place and participants should access the site from the manned entrance at Thorpe End

Our thanks to local business owner Nigel from 54A King Street Coffee in town for arranging this for us.
