Posted to website January 8th 2015
The Parish Council would like to wish everyone in the village a Happy New Year.
There are still opportunities for volunteers to help run the community library at Rawlins. Training will be given by the County Council and there will be lots of opportunities for everyone to get involved. It is likely that there will be admin tasks to be done as well as the obvious customer focussed duties. If you would like to help keep the library open, please contact the Parish Clerk.
If you are concerned that you don’t have a say about what happens in your village when it comes to new development, please volunteer to help to put together a Neighbourhood Plan. If the village has a plan it will give it a way to dictate where any new development goes in the future. Please contact the Parish Clerk for more details.
Elections in May 2015
If you would like to help serve your community and have an interest in village life, why not think about standing to be a Parish Councillor? There are no particular qualifications necessary, just a willingness to get involved and a desire to make a difference. There will be more news coming from the Borough Council soon to explain what is involved. Keep an eye on the village notice boards and the Quorn website.
Free Computer Training
There is a poster on the village notice boards about free computer training at The Cedars Academy (formerly Longslade Community College, Birstall). It’s on Thursday afternoons from 3:30-4:30pm starting on the 15th January and home visits can be arranged. Call Conrad 07919 884 629 or Mark on 07801 718 908 or see the poster for more details.
Stafford Orchard - Outdoor Gym Equipment
There has been little response to the suggestion of having outdoor gym equipment in Stafford Orchard. If you would use such equipment, please let the Parish Clerk know.
Quorn Old School
The Old School Trust has submitted a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to fund the restoration of the Old School building into a Heritage Centre. News should arrive in March 2015 about whether the bid has been successful. If you have an interest in local heritage and would like to get involved in the project, please contact the Parish Clerk.
The Parish Council has found that even the most responsible of owners are sometimes caught out by not paying enough attention to their dogs. Can I please ask that owners keep a watchful eye on their dogs when they are off lead and especially when in the park where the children play.
Did you know that you are able to advertise your event on the village website free of charge. Just go to www.quorndon.com/events/. Listing your event there will also get it on the Parish Council’s noticeboard where the calendar is displayed.
If you have any queries about the above item, please contact Christina, our Parish Clerk.
