Tarmac is being laid for the new MUGA on Warwick Park. This will take another 2 weeks to harden and set. During this time it is imperative that it is not walked on, played on or cycled on so the site remains fenced off. Once the tarmac is ready, line markings will then be added. This will be a fantastic facility for the community and all age groups
Please report any issues to email@example.com.

You cannot just turn up either. You must also be a Leicestershire... Read More »
