A VIEW FROM THE EDGE - Saturday 7th October - Parish Hall - 7.30pm. Tickets £9 and available from the Parish Office.

'OWDYADO THEATRE A VIEW FROM THE EDGE

A slick and surprising comedy drama inspired by classic noir films, following the murder of a prominent gallery owner and proceeding investigation.
Private eye and troubled sleeper Charlie Daniels is hired by the seductive Elise Hillerman to investigate the disappearance of her husband, a prominent gallery owner. Meanwhile, writers Charlotte and Dan struggle to write the script of their new noir-inspired theatre show about an art forgery ring. As scenes spin, fragment and entangle with each other, one question arises: whose reality is real?
A View from the Edge is a slick and surprising show where the search for the truth provokes a mind-bending journey through the world of dreams, imagination and real life. With its sharp wit, quick pace and a heavy dose of noir style; from the classic to the neo, A View from the Edge also takes influence from cult filmmakers Charlie Kaufman and David Lynch

Advice from Leicestershire Police

Advice from Leicestershire Police

Don't let green fingered thieves spring clean your shed.

Many people take a great deal of trouble securing their house and the property within it...but what about sheds and garages? With the array of lawnmowers, power tools, garden equipment, bicycles, sports and other valuable equipment kept in them, security measures should certainly be put in place.

Property

Gardening tools and garden furniture are not cheap - what's more they are very saleable items for the thief. Don't make it easy for them to be stolen and remember that tools stolen from your shed could be used to burgle your house. More »

  • Postcode or property mark anything in your shed or garage that is value and might be stolen, for example, lawnmowers, garden furniture, bicycles, sports equipment.
  • Take photographs of expensive items - they may be useful to police to identify the goods and return them to you, should you be unfortunate enough to have them stolen.
  • Never leave garden tools and equipment outside, even if you are just popping back into the house. It only takes minutes for an opportunist thief to take them.
  • Consider fitting a pair of garage door locks that are fitted either vertically or horizontally and can be locked both from the inside and outside of the garage.

National Collaboration Award for Blaby District Council

Blaby District Council has won an Association for Public Service Excellence (ASPE) award for Best Collaborative Working Initiative.

The award is for the Council's partnership with the County Council and Leicestershire's district/borough councils on the centralised housing support service, Lightbulb. The service is spearheaded and hosted by Blaby District Council, which first piloted the scheme back in 2015. More »

Lightbulb has now been rolled our across Leicestershire and supports older people to ensure they can live in their homes as safely as possible. The project has already been a success, with a reduction in A&E attendances and emergency admissions. These have saved the NHS an estimated £220,000.

920 unnecessary bed days were also saved from the Bradgate Mental Health Unit, saving an additional £219,000.

As a result of Lightbulb's work so far, 89% of service users have reported and improvement in their physical and mental health. 78% felt better about their home and 71% felt better able to get around their home and garden without the risk of falling.

Councillor Lee Breckon, Portfolio Holder for Community Services, said: "We are so proud to have been awarded this honour, and to be a part of the project. Lightbulb is a success due to the excellent work of everyone planning and delivering the project, as well as the fantastic partnership working with other districts and the County Council.

"The service brings wider and consistent housing support for all residents in Leicestershire, which also benefits housing, health and social care partners."

The Council has also been shortlisted for The Collaboration Award in the Home Improvement Agency Awards 2017 at the House of Lords later in September. » Less
