Well we have arrived at our June 2024 issue and a general election early next month!

As voters we look for leadership, boldness, integrity and above all honesty to get our country on track again.

It is interesting to reflect on what was happening in government 80 years ago. Obviously it was a coalition government but we did have leadership and a direction in which we were going!

It is also that time of year where I, as editor would like to thank all the people who have contributed to the production, assembly and delivery of your community newspaper. It is definitely a team effort.

May you all have a wonderful summer - when it arrives!

Vice-Captain's Golf Day - a Resounding Success with New Pizza and BBQ Event

The annual Vice- Captain's Golf Day was held recently and proved to be a tremendous success, bringing together members for a day of friendly competition, camaraderie, and delicious food. This year's event was particularly special with the introduction of a new pizza and BBQ event, which added a delightful culinary twist to the proceeding.

The golf tournament saw an impressive turnout with players competing in a friendly yet competitive spirit, aiming for those elusive birdies and eagles.

The addition of the pizza and BBQ event was a hit among attendees. Beyond the competition and delicious food, the Vice- Captain's Golf Day was a celebration of community and camaraderie.
Members and guests had the opportunity to socialize, share stories, and forge new friendships. The event also featured a raffle with proceeds going to Rainbows Hospice adding a charitable dimension to the day's enjoyment.

The positive feedback regarding the new pizza and BBQ addition suggests it will become a staple in the years to come. Watch out for our Pizza Take Away service coming soon!

Rotary Club Charity Golf Day - June 2024

22nd June 2024 | Clubs and Societies

Our Annual Charity Golf Day took place on Friday 7 June at the Kibworth Golf Club. 20 Teams entered, many returning, year after year, to support this event.

Around 1o’clock the teams set off for a shot gun start. The weather was kind and they all returned to the club house for a buffet and prize giving, some having enjoyed good golf and some just a good walk!
Congratulations to the winning team, who was captained by Tom Nimmo, and it was at least their third win in this competition.

The charity this year was Prostaid, a local charity supporting people living with prostate cancer.

Rob Banner, one of the founders and trustees of the charity, gave a short talk about the importance of being aware of the early symptoms of prostate cancer and the mostly positive outcome, if treated early. A fantastic sum, in the region of £2800, was raised.

In my journey with TMJ issues, I've encountered so many challenges that have prompted me to explore various methods for relief. I’ve tried everything: exercise, hydration, and a balanced diet, which is crucial for overall health, but addressing TMJ-specific concerns requires additional attention. This issue affects many of my patients, so I thought I would share my experience here.

The Kibworth Art Lovers Society held its annual exhibition at the Kibworth Community Hub. Held on the first weekend of June, we were delighted with the public response.
