Financial Help for Communities from The Kibworth Chronicle

19th July 2020 | Community, Coronavirus, Editorial

Like most societies, councils, community forums and groups of friends, The Kibworth Chronicle Management Committee has been holding its meetings online.

Every year as we reach the end of May, and June is fast approaching, I recall my primary school days and my best friend’s sister who was called June.

He was usually chased out of the house but escaped in the garden.

Thank You to Jan Heaney

4th June 2020 | Editorial

Regular visitors to the Kibworth & District Chronicle website will remember the iconic signpost logo that symbolised the many villages that are represented in our pages. Back in 2010, it was decided that it was time to update the early website that had been set up by enthusiastic volunteers. The design and maintenance of a new site were put out to tender and the proposals of Jan Heaney of Fleckney were accepted.
