Narborough Station
This month we are pleased to bring you an issue of The Journal packed with information about forthcoming local events, ranging from a rock concert in Huncote to an open garden in Enderby, and reports of recent events, such as a charity concert in Enderby and a talk on farming methods in Cosby. We hope that you can find something interesting to do. However, for those who like to get out and about walking their dog, there is much to be said in favour of that. Evidence suggests that dog ownership produces considerable health benefits, through both physical activity and social interactions, in addition to being good fun

. However, please bear in mind the new regulations on controlling and cleaning up after your pet, reported in this issue. Failure to control a dog can have undesirable results, as highlighted on our letters page; failure to clean up after your dog can result in a fine. This clearly applies to only a tiny minority of dog owners and I feel sure that our villages will remain largely free of such problems.

The Journal aims to be a source of local knowledge  in  our  five  ‘journal  villages’ and is proud to have been doing so for almost  40  years.   Arguably  the  most valued  members  of  our  team  are  our volunteer Distributors.

We are currently looking for new distributors to join the team and deliver The Journal in the following areas:

Alyssum  Way,  Campion  Close, Narborough approximately 65 copies

Trinity  Road,  Aldeby  Close,  Ratby Meadow Lane, St Johns 135 copies

Shelley Road, Byron Close Enderby 56 copies

Drovers Way, Masons Close, Fletchers Close Narborough 45 copies

Holland  Way,  Wood? eld  Close,  Bushy Close, Hampstead Close, Hyde Close, Greenwich  Close,  Canons  Close  in Narb. 50 copies

Please phone Linda Willis, Distribution Manager on
0116 286 3464.

The commmunities of Enderby, Littlethorpe, Narborough and surrounding areas came out in force to support the South Leicestershire’s Fundraising Support Group Blooming Great Tea Party bringing the total amount raised so far this year to nearly £7,000. All money raised by the Fundraising Group will help Marie Curie provide expert care, guidance and support to help people with a terminal illness, and their families, get the most from the time they have left.
Locally, Marie Curie Nurses work night and day, in people’s homes across South Leicestershire, providing hands-on care and vital emotional support.  The charity is also the leader in research into better ways of caring for people with terminal illness.

Seven out of 10 carers say that people with a terminal illness do not get all the care and support they need. As the UK’s leading charity for people living with any terminal illness, and their families, Marie Curie doesn’t think that is good enough. If you have any questions about terminal illness and are looking for support, Marie Curie is here to help you and your family.  You can call the Marie Curie Support Line on 0800 090 2309 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm)* or visit Mariecurie.org.uk/help.  You can also visit community.mariecurie.org.uk to share experiences and find support anytime of the day or night.
