One Kegworth - Kegworth Village
Kegworth in North West Leicestershire is a popular place to live with University of Nottingham students studying at the nearby Sutton Bonington Campus. There are approximately 800 students living in Kegworth.
One Kegworth was founded in 2016 when a group of like-minded people from the community joined each other with a vision of bringing all the events that happen in Kegworth together for one big weekend event.
The first event consisted of a wide range of activities, events, demonstrations, celebrations and more. The driving force for this exciting weekend was to bring the community together and to showcase the wide range activities available in the village.
In 2017 One Kegworth won the Leicestershire and Rutland Rural Achievement Award for best Community Engagement initiative. We’re very proud that University of Nottingham students make such a strong contribution to the community and even sit on the One Kegworth Committee.
The One Kegworth events have received grants of up to £500 from the Community Chest fund.
