Dog owners please note...

Please help keep our village clean and safe

Please bag that poo - any rubbish bin will do.

There was a good turnout for the switching on of Keyworth's festive lights on 2nd December and, this year, there are additional lights in the churchyard. The Parish Council was pleased to contribute towards the cost of the event and the new lights, but thanks are also due to Rushcliffe Borough Council and our local Borough Councillors; also the local businesses which, as in previous years, contributed towards the cost of fifty-five Xmas trees with lights at various points around the village. Compliments of the season to all our readers.
