The borough was created on 1 April 1974.

This year the borough of Charnwood is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The borough was created on 1 April 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. 

To celebrate its golden anniversary, the council is looking back on the past 50 years and is asking people from the borough and beyond to share their favourite memories, moments or places about Charnwood.

The council says it will be showcasing everything great about the borough, including its landmarks, open spaces, businesses and people, on social media and its other online channels. 

You can also send Charnwood Borough Council your photographs and videos here. 

Memories shared will be posted on their social media channels and will also feature on a designated webpage.  

Alongside the Council’s celebrations, Loughborough Library will be hosting a ‘50th Anniversary Exhibition 1974-2024’ from May 9 until July 27, 2024.

The exhibition will be hosted in the Local and Family History Centre section of the library and will feature photos and monuments from the past half century. 

The exhibition has been collated by the Loughborough Library Local Studies Volunteer Group.
