EVINGTON VILLAGE’S HERITAGE RECOGNISED

In 1936 the civil parish of Evington was dissolved and most of it was absorbed into Leicester. At last  its status as a village with a distinct heritage is to be re-established.

At a recent community meeting it was stated that Evington village would be officially recognized.

This will be indicated by sign posting, banners displayed on the street lampposts on Main Street, and  within the area. It is also anticipated that story-boards which give details about the heritage of  certain buildings would be erected.

Costs for this welcome, new and exciting initiative to promote the identity of Evington Village will be  met from the central budget.

The Evington Echo intends keep readers informed of progress as details emerge.
