From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arnesby is a village and civil parish in the Harborough district of Leicestershire, England. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 343, increasing to 357 at the 2011 census. The village is south of Leicester, on the Welford Road, between Kilby and Shearsby.
The village holds a May Fayre, on the second bank holiday each May. It pulls in crowds from miles around, and in addition to the atmosphere of the day attractions include games, competitions, craft stalls and street entertainment (brass band and a selection of local rock bands). The fayre raises money for local amenities. Past contributions have gone towards work on the roof of the Norman church and to providing disabled access to the village hall. The day is well supported by village volunteers. The local school also regularly likes to put on a maypole dance.
