Have your say on Leicestershire's Communities Strategy
There's just over a month to go for you to have your say on the proposed new approach to working with communities. The consultation is taking place until noon on 1st September and full details are on www.leics.gov.uk/communities_strategy.
The Council is carrying out a consultation on how it will:
• Help people and communities to support themselves and vulnerable people, reducing the demand on public services.
• Devolve services – increase the ability of community groups to take over, or work more closely with services currently delivered by the Council.
• Ensure voluntary groups support the Council to deliver its priorities on service devolution and help for vulnerable people.

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.
