 Listen to the Band!

24th June 2024 | Clubs and Societies

It’s hard to imagine a better way to lift the spirits on a cool, cloudy Sunday afternoon than by going to the Summer Concert of the Kibworth Band. It was held at the Kibworth Hub and all seat tickets had been sold. There are in effect three bands: the Seniors, the Youth Band (some of whom have already progressed to the Seniors so play in both) and the Training Band. These young children are just learning their instruments but gave us an excellent effort with their short programme, including ‘Ode to Joy’ and ‘When the Saints go Marching In.’

Kibworth Golf Club - June 2024

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.

Kibworth & Smeeton WI - June 2024

22nd June 2024 | Clubs and Societies

On arrival at our meeting on 9 May, members were invited to look at photo albums, minute books and some of our more recent yearbooks, including one which recorded our different life during the Covid
pandemic and two special, ornate yearbooks celebrating Leicestershire and Rutland Federation’s and our own centenaries. Some of the minute books and the photographs are decades old and it is so interesting to read about those meetings and to note the more formal style of reporting. For example, members were addressed as Mrs… or Miss…

We began the business of the meeting with this year’s Resolution. In the past, this involved presentations of a number of suggested campaigns to present to the Government, and then members voted for their favoured resolution. Nowadays, the process is much simpler. Members can access information online or in the national WI Life magazine. The top resolution is presented to WIs and they vote either for or against. This year’s resolution is ‘Dental Health Matters’ which urges the Government to address the chronic shortage of NHS dentists and to ensure that everyone can access an NHS dentist, wherever they live.
