Quorn Festival of Angels
Posted to website November 29th 2016
Quorn United Church (St. Bartholomew's) has invited a host of angels to Quorn to stay in the village and share the Christmas message with us.
There will be angels flying and perching round the village over Christmas; in the shops, in the trees, wherever they can land safely. Please join in – show angels in your windows, build them in your gardens, dress up and enjoy the angels’ festival.
There will be an exhibition of Angels made by village groups and individuals in the church from Saturday December 10th to Wednesday January 4th. The church will be open on December 10th from 10am to 6pm and on Sunday 11th before and after services. It will also be open on Saturdays 17th, 24th and 31st December and Sundays 18th December and 1st January. The exhibition will be open at other times during the week whenever it is possible to staff it (see local posters and notices).
An exhibition of the primary school children’s designs for the Village Christmas Card will be open in the Church Rooms on the 10th and 11th December.
Two special services will be held in church on Sunday 11th December. The morning service will be a celebration of Angels, their influence and their message and at 4.00 pm Messy Church will also celebrate Angels with story, crafts and songs and carols. Do come and share the Festival with us.
For further information, please contact 01509 412 047.
We, and the Angels, are looking forward to sharing the Festival with you. Do join in and enjoy.
Donation from Tarmac
Posted to website October 10th 2016
Tarmac have donated £202,100 to Quorn Parish Council via the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), to support the development of Quorn’s Heritage Centre. The donation will help to install a new roof, gutters and downpipes and so kick start bringing the historic part of the Old School back into community use. Getting the work under way will support the Parish Council's application for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to carry out the adaptations to the building to house the Heritage Suite, the Community Library and Lounge, a drop-in cafe and social area.
Chair of the Parish Council’s Project Team said: “We are delighted to be able to thank Tarmac for their donation. It will help bring back into use the well-loved Old School and is an excellent start to our campaign to enable the Old School to complement our very successful Stafford Orchard Park. We are working in partnership with the Quorn Old School Trust which has worked over many years to develop the ideas for this important building at the heart of our village.
Tarmac’s estates manager, Tim Deal, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting this project which will provide so many benefits to the local community. Supporting and engaging with the communities in which we operate is something we strive to do across our business, and donating to this project is a fantastic way to do this.
The LCF is an innovative tax credit scheme, enabling operators of landfill sites to contribute a portion of their landfill tax liability to support community projects local to landfill sites. Tarmac have supported a number of projects via the LCF, across the whole of the UK and Leicestershire specifically.
