Marion Vincent won an 'Oscar' on the 10th February 2006 for work on the Rothley Village Website. The award was for Overall Content. Marion won another 'Oscar' in 2007 under the same category.
It was awarded and presented by Leicestershire County Council under their www.leicestershirevillages.com project which gave every village in the county the opportunity to create a website. Under budget cuts the project was discontinued in 2016. Marion then transferred all the data to its new home at Rothley Parish Council.
