Happy Diwali

Diwali is here. The 5 day “Festival of Light”, starting today, is celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs across the world, but especially here in Leicester – our city celebration is the largest outside of India.

Friends of Kirby Hub – 7 September meeting

What would your three wishes for the village be? Whilst we can’t wave a magic wand, The Friends of Kirby Hub are hosting a series of events to gather your ideas with the aim of making some of them a reality.

The first of our open meetings saw ideas such as a community allotment, history interpretation panels, Kirby’s Got Talent, a duck race, open gardens and cleaning of the brook flying thick and fast around the room.
But we want more.
We want your ideas!

If you think you could spare some time to be involved in organising events to bring our village closer together, come and talk to us at the Scarecrow Festival this Saturday from 12.30 in the library, or come along to the second of our public meetings next Wednesday 14th September at 7.30pm also in the library.

Together we can make things happen!

Friends of Kirby Hub

Kirby Muxloe Library and Community Hub (KML&CH) is launching a Community Action Group and you are invited to join!

The aim is to bring our village closer together by linking people to stimulate volunteer involvement in all sorts of ways.

If you would like to see more community social events in the village, want positive changes made to our village environment, or have ideas about how we could work together on community projects, then we would like to hear from you!

We are hosting two open meetings to gather ideas for projects that could benefit Kirby Muxloe. If you have any time to help with the organisation of such events, or just some ideas to share, then please come along. We are sure that together. we can make some of your ideas, big or small, become a reality.
