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!
