The Magazine


Welcome to both the November/December edition, but also the last edition of 2017!

In this issue we bring you some fascinating and inspiring stories from folk within the community regarding events, initiatives and challenges that will impress upon you for any number of reasons.

Take David Needham, of Cold Newton, for example. Dave has Motor Neurone Disease but find a moment to read about his recent completion of the The Yorkshire Three Peaks, the first person to do so in an all-terrain wheelchair.

Or how about Liz Robson, founder of the Rothley Wine Estate, who just scooped the Leicester Mercury’s Entrepreneur of the Year award, none too shabby for a lady that still lectures part-time in Midwifery!

We bring you news too from Bradgate Park and the unveiling of their Memorial Wood, thanks to assistance from the Leicestershire and Rutland Freemasons, who incidentally have been fantastically busy across the county, also supporting Age UK recently with the roll-out of their “Silver Surfers” initiative – a great campaign which helps to support older people in using communication tools such as email and Skype.

With loads of events – from the Santa Fun Run to Bonfire Nights, Christmas Craft Fairs to Chocfests and even book launches and afternoon tea! – we’re bringing you tonnes of things, indoors and out, to get involved with between now and the end of the year, for you, the family and everyone in between!

We do hope you enjoy the read and we look forward to providing another one just like it in 2018!

Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year to you all,
