The Magazine


Welcome to the March/April edition of The Bradgate Magazine and the soon to be commencement of Spring and all things light and bright.

Talking of “bright”, we’ve seen a fantastic start to 2018 for the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust, an organisation that is dedicated to raising awareness for SADS (Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome) – they have been phenomenally busy this year already and we’re delighted to bring you news of not one but two of their initiatives this edition, covering their work with the pioneering Everards Leicestershire and Rutland Cricket League as well as Rothley Imps Juniors Football Club.

Keeping on the sporting theme, did you know that Leicestershire is a bit of a hot spot when it comes to powering Britain’s best Women’s American Football Team? Read all about how a number of women from the area are driving the sport both domestically and on the global stage.

We’re also delighted to bring you news this edition on some important restoration projects (namely, Loughborough Town Hall’s historic Clock Bell and St. Paul’s Church, Woodhouse Eaves) but it’s also great to read about individuals making a difference in the community too: enter stage right the sterling work of Barrie Stephen and Patrick Harris in relation to Woodside Animal Centre and The Bridge – Homelessness to Hope, respectively.

Finally, in showcasing a plethora of things to see and do this issue, from walks and talks, to exhibitions, film and comedy shows, music events and organised trips, why not make sure you get out and about this March and April with the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust, Great Central Railway, Friends of Charnwood Forest, National Trust Leicester Association or the Century Theatre, Coalville, to name just a few of our contributors: a great day or night out will no doubt be guaranteed!

Until next time…
