Your memories of Charnwood on its Golden Anniversary


The borough of Charnwood is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2024.

The borough was created on April 1, 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972 when three former districts – Barrow upon Soar Rural District, Loughborough Municipal Borough and Shepshed Urban District – were all abolished.

Charnwood was formed, and Charnwood Borough Council followed soon after.

To celebrate its golden anniversary, the Council will be highlighting everything that is great about the borough, including its landmarks, open spaces, businesses and its people, on social media and its other online channels.

The Council will also be looking back on the past 50 years and is asking people from Charnwood and beyond to take part in the celebrations by sharing their favourite memories, moments or places about Charnwood on social media.

You can upload your photographs and videos and tell your stories below. Please consider including details about what the picture/video shows and when it was taken.

Memories shared will be posted on our social media channels and will also feature on a designated webpage,

Thank you for taking part!
