From the editor - Sept 14

Firstly, a big welcome to the September/October edition of The Bradgate Magazine, and secondly, a big well done to Barbara Handley, who won our previous edition’s give-away competition: a family ticket to the glorious Wistow Maze. Our thanks go to the Mayor of Charnwood, Paul Day, who kindly picked the winner for us and with this in mind, may we pass on our best wishes too to Barbara and co for their future trip to Wistow’s fabulous Maze!

On to the magazine itself and we have a wedding feature for you – pages 42 to 47 are devoted to all things bridal, so if you or someone close to you is planning a wedding then taking a moment to review our pages is an absolute must – from latest trends to latest offers, check out what your local wedding businesses have to offer you on your special day.

From great events to the great outdoors and for fantastic local walks in support of the Loughborough RSPB head to page 17 if you’d like to know how you can participate, or, for something a little more energetic, have you ever thought about tennis? Well, if so, Loughborough Tennis Club want to hear from you – their ladies first team have just won the County Division 1 title (for the second time in three years!), so there’s something for the competitive as well as the casual player – turn to page 25 for a report on how the club is doing and how you can get involved.

For something a little more gentile, and equally, for the uninitiated, there exists a little known gem, in the form of the Organ Music Enthusiasts group, who meet monthly in Bardon. Each meeting, an appreciative audience is treated to a performance from a top class organist, so if you’d like to find out more about these musical and sociable evenings then turn to page 32.

Also, and as usual, we have lots of news and reports from local clubs and societies to bring you, so please peruse and enjoy, and in the meantime make sure you all enjoy the last of the summer, wherever you may be, before we start to welcome in the beautiful colours of Autumn and all of its delights,

Ed & the team
