A Defibrillator for Medbourne
November 2015 sees the launch of a fund-raising project to buy a defibrillator for the Village. This project, which is being managed by David and Val Tyler, is described on the new Defibrillator page. Please go to the page and consider donating to this extremely worthwhile endeavour.
New Village Web Site
The Parish Council Web Site and this site both run on infrastructure provided by Leicestershire County Council. LCC have informed us that the infrastructure will be switched off in August 2016. As a result work has started to re-host all our content onto a new platform.
If you would like to get involved please email the site administrator David Tuffs.
Please complete our survey
We are very fortunate to have the help of 4 postgraduate students at de Montfort University who are undertaking a project to help us design our new Village web site. In order to assist in the project they have produced a very short survey to canvass opinions, and understand usage, of the current site(s). Please click the link below to take the survey. Thank you.
The Medbourne Neighbourhood Planning Advisory Committee (MNPAC) has swung into action. Follow what's happening with this important village undertaking by consulting the new Neighbourhood Planning page on the Parish Council web site.

Medbourne is an ancient village with a medieval stone bridge over a brook, a beautiful church and a traditional pub. Medbourne was originally a Roman settlement, on the route from Leicester to Colchester. The village lies in a valley carved out by the Medbourne Brook, which is a tributary of the river Welland.
Nowadays, Medbourne is a conservation area whose historic stone cottages, large elegant houses and leafy walks combine to make the village one of the most picturesque in the Welland Valley.
