Temporary Closure of Shoppers Car Park - The Crossways

The Parish Council would like to inform residents of the temporary closure of the car park on the Crossways week commencing 24 May 2021. This is in line with health & safety measures to enable urgent work to be carried out to the walls.

We aim to keep the closure time down to a minimum but there is the larger free car park off the roundabout on Sibson Road.

Please accept the Parish Council's apologies for any inconvenience that these works have caused.

Energy users ‘save over £170 each’ with Charnwood Big Switch

Residents in Charnwood could save more than £170 a year on their energy bills with Charnwood Big Switch.

Charnwood Borough Council runs the switching scheme in partnership with iChoosr to help residents change energy suppliers with ease and save money on their bills.

Over 1,100 residents switched in the February auction and saved an average of £172 a year.

The next Charnwood Big Switch energy auction will take place on Tuesday May 18. More »

Residents are also being reminded to fully complete their registration if they wish to take part and receive an energy offer.

Cllr Paul Mercer, lead member for private housing said: "It was great to see such a large number of residents switch suppliers during the last auction.

"We don't want residents to pay any more for their energy then they have to, and the switching scheme makes the process of changing suppliers easier.

"There's no commitment by just registering and it's worth just signing up to see how much you could save each year. It's important residents who do want to take part, fully complete their registrations to make sure they receive their offers."

iChoosr holds three auctions a year and energy suppliers compete to provide the lowest priced tariff in the auction. Only suppliers that offer 100 per cent renewable electricity tariffs can take part in auctions.

It's free to register for Charnwood Big Switch and only takes a few minutes.
