Don’t miss your mince pie and mulled wine at this year’s carol concert at the Village Hall. Doors open at 7 and, if you are a regular, you will know to be there early for a 7:30 kick off. Hathern Band will be entertaining us all as usual but this year we will have a singer too.
Community Library/Neighbourhood Plan Public Meeting
Tuesday 13th January 2014, 7.00pm Village Hall
If you’re keen to keep the current library at Rawlins open, and possibly help increase its opening hours, you’ll be interested in coming along to the above meeting. There will be news from the County Council about what it can offer in the way of support to any volunteers willing to help. They’ll also be the opportunity for parishioners to volunteer to help put together a Neighbourhood Plan. Without a Plan the village has little power to protect sites of local importance from future development. For more information contact the Parish Clerk.
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 in the new year to explain what is involved which will be on the notice boards.

Stafford Orchard - Outdoor gym equipment
The Park Management Committee is considering the introduction of outdoor gym equipment in Stafford Orchard. Can you please let us know if you would be likely to make use of it.
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. Did you know that almost all of the boys lost to the village in the First World War attended the school? 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 request that owners keep a watchful eye on their dogs when they are off the lead and especially in the park where the children play.
