Narborough Station
Of course we all knew that this area was a fine place to live, but it is good to see this confirmed in a recent Chanel 4 show, UKís Best Place to Live, in which Blaby District came third overall and was placed first in the Midlands. Itís all too easy to take our local area for granted, but it does have several attributes that place it ahead of many other localities.  Affordable housing, compared to the South, and transport links via the road and rail networks all counted in our favour.
The presence of the headquarters of major employers such as Next and Santander together with an abundance of small local firms serves us well in the employment stakes. Other factors such as happiness and life satisfaction are more difficult to quantify, but Iím sure all of The Journal villages score well in these respects as well.

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.

If you could give around an hour of your time eleven times a year we would love to hear from you..

During the year we regularly put out messages encouraging people to take precautions to try to reduce the chances of you becoming a victim of crime.

Although most people always make sure their houses and out building are secure, we still attend burglaries that maybe could have been avoided.

Therefore we would urge you to take the following precautions, where possible, to help deter people from targeting your property: 

Keep doors and windows locked at all times - even if you pop outside to the garden or go upstairs

Always lock doors behind you and remove the key from the lock

Burglary alert

Keep valuables, bags, cash and keys out of sight and keep them in a safe place, ideally locked away if possible

If you are unsure who the person is at the door, donít open it and always check their ID if they claim to be from a company, even if you are expecting them.

This is advice you will have heard time and time again but it really can make a difference.

We rely on you to keep us informed of suspicious activity in your area, if you see something that doesn’t seem quite right please report it to us by calling 101.  In an emergency or if there is a crime in progress please call 999.
