Littlethorpe Life May 2023

A new “Friendship Bench” has been installed outside the village hall on Biddle Road. This has been jointly funded by the LCA and the Parish Council. We hope you enjoy many a friendly chat on it.

Thank you to all the volunteers who joined us to clean the railings near the level crossing last month. A couple of hours hard work meant they looked sparkly clean just in time for coronation weekend!

And talking of the Coronation, the theme for this year’s Scarecrow Festival will be Kings and Queens. It will take place in September and there will be more details nearer the time, but get planning as to what great scarecrows you can create.

Our regular LCA activities will be continuing as usual:

The Art Club continues in the village hall on Biddle Road on Tuesdays 2pm-4pm. The cost is £4.00 per session. For more information contact Tom Bates on 0116 275 2656.

Drop-in Coffee Mornings also continue to take place on the second Saturday of the month, 10.00-12.00, also in the village hall.

Book Sale, Coffee Morning & Warm Space takes place every other Wednesday 9am-1pm in the village hall on Biddle Rd. We have received a grant from the council to be able to offer soup and a bread roll at lunchtime, so we hope to welcome faces old and new.

Gill Ward is continuing to lead the Feel-Good Walks. They take place every Thursday morning from The Plough carpark, ready to set off at 10.15am. There is no need to book. The walks will be at a leisurely pace and finish at approximately midday.

Short Mat Bowls takes place Thursdays 7pm-9pm in the village hall. New members are welcome.

LCA meetings. The committee meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm, alternately in The Plough and The Old Inn. New faces are always welcome.
