From the editor - July 2014

Welcome everyone to July and August’s edition of The Bradgate Magazine.

Well thankfully we are now well into our beautiful British summer so let’s enjoy it – both the good weather and the long days -whilst they are with us.

In this edition of the Bradgate Magazine, as usual, we have our ‘Out and About’ section which, we hope, might help expand your horizons this July/August (see pages 48 and 49). The magazine is packed with exciting local events, one example of this being the 100th Ashby Show. Taking place on Sunday 13th July, this event is a fun, rural day out steeped in local history – turn to page 19 for more information.

For the car enthusiasts out there, we also have a couple of articles which might appeal – page 23 reports on the Charnwood Caper Car Run whilst the Beaumanor Hall Classic Car and Transport Show in Woodhouse, gets going on Sunday 20th July.

Our Feature this month is on the three adjoining villages of Rothley, Mountsorrel and Quorn, these three quite charming villages are well worth a visit, and you can read about all the reasons why on pages 43 to 47.

Finally, we’d like to take a moment to acquaint you with the Anthony Nolan Register, a very worthwhile charity which looks to register healthy 16 – 30 year olds who are willing to donate stem cells with a view to matches being identified for people who desperately need transplants – the charity is looking for new donors, please turn to page 10 if you think you might be able to help.

So without further delay, welcome to this months’ edition of the Bradgate Magazine, we hope you enjoy it,

Ed & the team
