The Kibworth Theatre Company is your local theatre group and a registered charity. We are a jolly gang of local people, who work hard with the talent we have, to bring great productions to the village. Once lockdown has been lifted finally, we will be working full tilt towards one of our next productions, ‘ The Vicar of Dibley’, which is due for performance next year. We’re also exploring other productions for the Christmas season. Watch this space for more information.

South Leicestershire Medical Group (SLMG)

31st May 2021 | Community, Coronavirus

As of Saturday 10 April, SLMG will have completed over 10,000 COVID-19 vaccinations to our patient population. All COVID-19 vaccinations currently take place at Kibworth Medical Centre (KMC) on Smeeton Road. As per NHS England specifications, practices that belong to our Primary Care Network (PCN) also have to provide their Pfizer vaccinations from KMC. This is because the Pfizer vaccine cannot be moved from site-to-site. It is also because the vaccine needs to be utilised within four days from delivery. Therefore, Billesdon Surgery and The Croft Medical Centre in Oadby use KMC on a regular basis to vaccinate their patients.

The success of last year’s inaugural event run by Fiesta Sports Coaching means that it is being repeated this year on Sunday 23 May at Warwick Park, again funded by the two parish councils.

Kibworth Harcourt Post Mill

30th May 2021 | Community

After seeing and reading the front and back pages of last month’s Chronicle, I was pleasantly surprised to have a phone call the following week from a member of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) Special Operations Team.  He rang to ask if I would attend a site meeting the following Monday, in my role as chairman of Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council, together with an officer from Harborough District Council, so we could have the repair work outlined and communication lines agreed to share details of the project as it unfolds.  I was pleased to direct the engineers from SPAB to the excellent article about the windmill on the Kibworth Village Museum website.

What can we do about the climate crisis?

30th May 2021 | Community

Sadly the pandemic has had a catastrophic effect for many people, including many readers of the Kibworth Chronicle; loss of jobs and loss of income, loss of family members and friends. It all seems hopeless. And yet, it is being seen by many as a wakeup call and a vital opportunity for us while there is still time, to change the way we live, for a safer as well as fairer society for all and to stop further pandemics.

A Grave Matter

29th May 2021 | Community

Many moons ago, I attended a 'forties event' in the Kibworth Grammar School. I was dressed in my 'Mellors' gamekeeper outfit, and found myself sitting next to the late Betty Ward. That lovely lady had her Land Army gear on, just as she had done during WW2.
