Vandalised heritage panel repaired


The heritage panel in Smeeton Road, outside the Kibworth School, has been repaired after being attacked by vandals.

The panel is one of a group installed following the TV historian Michael Wood's ground-breaking 'Story of England' series which was broadcast on BBC4 and BBC2 in 2011.

The panel had been wrenched off its mounting and thrown into the nearby hedge.

The panels were funded by a grant from the National Lottery.  The cost of the repairs will be borne by Kibworth Beauchamp Parish Council from council tax income.
