As well as traditional fayres and fetes, there are many events which can foster a sense of community. Leicestershire's Green Plaque Awards Scheme is an example.
Children from the local primary school, parish, district and county councils, community librarians, residents from the adjacent care home and interested passers-by joined together to unveil a commemorative plaque to a local artist.
The location for the plaque - at the Hunny Hive nursery in Smeeton Road, Kibworth Beauchamp - was chosen because Kenney lived nearby. His home was demolished to make way for a new road in the 1960s.
