Volunteers Community Award
Well done to The Friends of Springfield Lake, who have received a community award. This accolade has been awarded by Charnwood Borough Council and Serco as part of their “Don’t Muck Around” Scheme.
The group of volunteers has also been entered into the Wildlife category for Charnwood in Bloom.
Quorn Open Gardens
The grand total raised over the Open Gardens weekend is £3158.23. £2768.23 will go to LOROS and £390 to MND.
The Open Gardens passport has a map on the back, but it has become a little faded/jaded over the years (plus Quorn has one or two more developments), so if someone could draw/produce a stylised version of a map of our village, we would very much appreciate it. Please contact either Ann Clarricoates on 01509 414105 or Linda Hulme on 01509 414140. Thank you.
Quorn Library Volunteer-Led Activities
Wriggly Readers is taking a two week break and will resume on Friday 29 July, then continuing weekly throughout the holidays. Whilst Wriggly Readers is aimed at 0-4 year olds, feel free to bring older siblings in the holidays.
Story Time is taking a break during school holidays and will resume on Tuesday 6 September.
Over the summer we will continue to post on our Facebook page: Quorn Library Activities.
Quorn Village Hall Bookings
By the time you read this, I (Linda Hulme) will have left the Parish Council's employ, but hopefully the ‘Parish News’ will continue with my successor. I have enjoyed working at QPC for the past 6 years and I certainly know a lot more about the village that I have lived in for the past 36 years. The hall bookings will be taken by Paul Goodman, who, although not a Quorn resident, knows a lot about the workings of Parish Councils, as he has been a Parish Clerk and will be a great asset. The telephone number and e-mail address will remain the same.
If you have any queries about the above items, please contact Christina, our Parish Clerk.
