From the Chairman of Croft Parish Council, Cllr Clive Mawby:
I have just heard the news that Bill Law passed away on 27th June 2016 and I would like say a few words about Bill and his involvement in Croft Village.
Bill was on the Croft Parish Council for 30 years and was Chairman for many of those. He also was a District Councillor representing Croft Hill Ward, which included Croft Village, for 28 years until he stood down from both roles in May 2007. More »
During his time as a District Councillor he became a Cabinet Member then from 1992-1993 was chair of Blaby District Council. On his retirement from Public Service his was given the title of Honorary Alderman from Blaby District Council, a distinction awarded to him for the level of service he gave in his roles of District Councillor, Cabinet Member and Chair of Blaby District Council.
Bill was also involved in the saving of Croft Hill. An action group had been set up by the village and the Parish Council to prevent the quarry from removing Croft hill in its expansion plans to access further granite rock. I remember seeing the interviews he and other villagers gave to the to local news via TV, radio or newspaper. The result was that Croft Hill was saved from further removal and is as you see it today.
We should also not forget the role he had in the evolving Quarry Liaison Group which was set up as one of the planning conditions for the Quarry. This enabled the Quarry and the local villages of Croft & Huncote to have a working partnership. Bill chaired this until his retirement in 2007.
I have known Bill Law for 20 years, having served with him on the Parish Council and the Quarry Liaison Committee. He was a strong character and a good orator. If any Parishioners came to him for help, he would do his best to help and resolve their issues. All I can say is that he had Croft at heart. » Less

The Parish Council is working towards creating a Conservation Area in the old part of the village, broadly speaking on the Church side of the railway line.
The proposals were on display at the Community Centre on 12 January and comments are now being assessed and, where appropriate, will be included in the recommendations passed to Blaby District Council when they are asked to adopt the plan.
