LCC Welfare Van

The Leicestershire County Council Welfare Van will be in Kirby Muxloe at the Library on Wednesday 23rd February from 2.00 – 5.00pm.

The staff will offer advice on a variety of well-being issues and inform you about how to access services.  They will also show you how to access lateral flow test kits and will carry out testing on the day if you feel you need one. Results within 30 minutes.

Do come along and talk to the staff if you feel it would be of benefit to you.

Could you be a New Trustee?

Due to the resignations of two of our Trustees, we now have vacancies for two new Trustees. 

We are looking in particular for people who have experience/skills/interest in marketing, advertising and design, a wish to develop the community side of our enterprise (given that we are a community hub) and, of course, an interest in and commitment to the concept of libraries. 

Trustees meet monthly to manage the Charity’s business and to set its strategy and direction.  If you feel that you would like to join us, please email Liz Collinson at  setting out your interests and experience.  We look forward to hearing from you.  

We are a friendly and welcoming bunch of people so please have a think about joining us and contributing to the well-being of our community.  The duties are not onerous!
