“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world” – Desmond Tutu

There are often complaints that Kibworth is growing too big, too full of people who don’t care about community, that it’s becoming soulless. But it only takes a few minutes scrolling through the Kibworth and Smeeton Information Exchange on Facebook to realise that this simply isn’t true. Yes, there are complaints about poor parking or dog owners not clearing up after their pets, but read on and you’ll soon find out just what a warm community we have here.

The number of times someone asks for help is astounding, whether for something simple like empty boxes or a more complicated request for aid with simply getting by day-to-day. But what is remarkable and heart-warming, is the number of people who reply with all kinds of help and advice. Pointing them in the right direction or offering up support / furniture / food / company, there is always someone there for you. If you’re on Facebook and not a member of this group, make sure you join up. And a big thank you to the administrators of the group who do such a great job!

It makes us so proud here at Kibworth Community Library to be part of this growing village and to be doing our part to keep the soul of Kibworth alive and well. That’s why we are a registered Warm Space and offer free hot drinks to anybody who comes into the library. Please come in, we’re looking forward to meeting you.
