In Praise of a Footpath

23rd February 2021 | News

How useful has this new footpath  been on Warwick Park?  Since the first lockdown it has been used, no doubt, countless times when folks have been taking their daily exercise. When the rains came in the autumn it was used in preference to the muddy recreation ground.  It’s a path that leads to the very newly installed Multi Use Games Area (MUGA). And now with the arrival of snow it is one of the safer routes for getting around our village joining together residents from the outer reaches of the village to the village centre.

Kibworth Easy Riders

23rd February 2021 | Clubs and Societies, Community, News, Uncategorised

It's been a long winter so far with all the covid restrictions in place. But the Easy Riders have continued to thrive, with nearly all the riders battling the elements either solo, or in pairs rides out. Membership is growing rapidly, mainly as a result of our highly successful Xmas bike appeal which saw a great effort from our members resulting in over 70 local children benefiting from the donation of the restored bikes.. We learnt a lot from this scheme and already looking forward to doing it again next year.

A second car with a very young baby in it could not stop and hit the Mercedes; miraculously, the baby and Mother were unhurt. The driver of the Mini was driven away by Police.

Canal Cuttings

22nd December 2020 | News

As of 5 November, we are back to square two. All navigation is stopped except in special circumstances. The locks only open by pre-booking 24 hours in advance with a valid reason, and not at weekends. Pubs are closed, and the shop/café selling drinks and food for take-away only. People are allowed to drive out to take exercise this time. This is within reason (although there seem to be different interpretations of ‘reason’). Since we have had some beautiful warm sunny late-autumn days there have been plenty of visitors. Thankfully the car park toilets are open. The colours in the trees and reflections in the undisturbed water have provided some good photo opportunities.
