The Borough Council is proud of its long standing association with the local Regular and Reserve Units in the Borough.

A public appreciation to this was demonstrated by the Council in 2011 and 2012 when it granted the Freedom of the Borough to the Leicestershire & Derbyshire Yeomanry (Prince Albert’s Own), B Squadron and The Royal Anglian Regiment.

These major events were hosted by the Mayor of the Borough and were fully funded and organised by the Council and culminated in two large parades through the centre of Wigston and South Wigston which were attended by thousands of people.

These events are both commemorated by displays in the Council Chamber.
