The Magazine


Welcome to the July/August edition of your Bradgate Magazine.

Bringing you news of fabulous days out alongside some amazing charitable gestures, challenges and events we’ve a little something for everyone coming up.

As evidence we bring you: a Colour Splash Fun Run, a Festival of Archaeology, Summer Fetes, Keyboard Evenings, the Bosworth Medieval Festival, The Countryside Show and Robbie’s Rugby Festival, to name but a few marvellous examples of great things to see and do across the course of the next few months.

We also devote some space this edition to a few of our awesome advertisers who bring you interesting and insightful news and information on their wares and services, from Rossells Security Services, to Birstall Garden Centre, Latham & Co, Rothley Park Golf Club alongside Sask Optics, who delight in bringing you a great introductory offer to boot!

This edition we also shine a little light on LoveLBG – a Business Group with a difference, led by founder Sue Crooks – “we make friendships first and then do business” – which sums up the mantra for these good folk to a tee.

We’ve also plenty of green-fingered treats for you too with open gardens, plant hunters fairs, gardening clubs and flower and vegetable shows on the horizon, all nicely book-ended by our fab resident gardening supremo, Joanne Kennedy of Garden Blueprints, who this edition shares her pearls of wisdom on how to attract wildlife to your garden.

Finally, some great competitions, courtesy of the brilliant team at Wistow Maze and local author S. Lynn Scott concludes our provision – head to pages 53 and 35 respectively, to dive right in!

…but in the meantime we do hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and we’ll see you again, same-time, same-place, for the forthcoming September/October edition.

All the best,
