Quorn Neighbourhood Plan - Update

Posted to website October 24th 2018

The Submission copy of the plan was approved unanimously for submission to the Local Authority (Charnwood Borough Council) at the Quorn Parish Council meeting held on 2nd October 2018. The submission plan and associated package was submitted on Monday 8th October.
The above documents and a range of supporting information is available to view on the Quorn Neighbourhood Plan website at:
www.leicestershirecommunities.org.uk/np/quornnp.html

The Borough Council now has the responsibility for checking that the Quorn Neighbourhood Plan meets all the relevant rules, checking that it conforms to the Local Plan, arranging and funding an independent examination, a further 6-week statutory consultation on the submission documents, and a local referendum and then adopting the Quorn Neighbourhood Plan. Further information can be found on the Charnwood Borough Council website under Neighbourhood Plans.

Posted to website October 24th 2018

Three great events coming up from the Quorn Local History Group.

On Monday 22nd October at 7.00pm at the Village hall a Special Quorn Local History Group Halloween event The Wise Woman: Spells and Witchcraft is presented by Chris Carr. Chris studied witchcraft as part of her University studies and she has taken that study further. Much of her research is incorporated into this talk which should not be missed!

Then, over the weekend of 10th and 11th November the group are coordinating the Quorn Armistice Centenary Commemorations. Pick up a Trail Leaflet from venues in the village.

Then on Monday 26th November at St Bartholomews United Church at 7.00pm the QLHG are pleased to present The story of Loughborough Carillon - a special evening with Mel Gould. An illustrated talk with some items from the museum and their story. Members £2 Guests £4.

Don't forget we now have a Charnwood Community Lottery page. Tickets cost only £1.00 a week and 50% of all tickets sold from our page go to help us to promote and preserve Quorn's diverse history and heritage. 10% goes to other local good causes and you can win prizes of up to £25,000.
