Narborough Station
This is the final edition of The Journal for 2016, our 40th year of publication. We continue to be the main conduit for local information about the villages that we serve, but we do rely on contacts living within the area to supply that information. Please let us know if there is something that we should publicise or report on and we will do our best to include it. We extend our thanks, as always, to the correspondents who send in the reports on the activities of local councils, clubs, societies and schools, as well as the letter writers who liven up our pages.

The band of willing volunteers who produce The Journal now get a month off for Christmas so the next issue will be published on January 28th 2017; the copy date will be 13th January, so all articles must be with us by then. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

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.

Denman Lane (part), Critchlow Road and Langley Close in Huncote. Approx 70 copies

Volunteer Packer

The Journal is looking for a volunteer to join our packing team. The team meets 11 times a year on a Friday afternoon in Huncote to pack The Journal into rounds for our distributors. Approx 1 hours would be required and some light lifting is involved.

Please phone Linda Willis, Distribution Manager on

Darker Nights

As it gets darker earlier we want to remind people how best to protect yourself and your property around this time of year. Things you could think about are LIGHT TIMERS, SECURITY MARKING PROPERTY, WINDOW SHOCK ALARMS & GOOD SECURITY LIGHTING.  We also like to remind people not to advertise your property to thieves - make sure it can’t be seen through the window.

Finally, your local Police team would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a fantastic New Year.
