Thank You to Volunteers from Harborough District Council

Thank You to Volunteers from Harborough District Council

Sent on behalf of Councillor Phil King, Leader of Harborough District Council

Dear Sir / Madam

With National Volunteers Week getting underway today (1 June 2020), as Leader of Harborough District Council, I wanted to take this timely opportunity to recognise and pay tribute to all the volunteers who have stepped up and reached out across our communities to lend a hand when and where it was desperately needed, during the current crisis. More »

Harborough District Council has been working with approximately 400 volunteers in approximately 70 volunteer groups, across the district to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and will continue to do so as we look towards during the recovery phase to get communities, and the local economy, back on track.

Whether you have been volunteering as an individual, or part of a wider community group, your contribution has been essential and continues to make a huge difference to people's lives during this hugely challenging time.

You may have been helping deliver food parcels, collecting prescriptions, contacting people who may be feeling vulnerable or lonely, or provided help in some other way, but whichever way you have assisted, it has possibly never been more appreciated than now.

Volunteering has never been more critically important. The third sector represents communities in action and is the grass roots of community cohesion. Harborough District Council has a long history of grant making to this sector and that will continue in the future.

For the last 10 weeks, we have all been saluting our amazing NHS, social care workers, joining others across the nation each Thursday at 8pm to clap and acknowledge their continued dedication to saving lives at this time of crisis. But it is also important that we recognise the kind-hearted volunteers who are also doing extraordinary things to support the lives of people affected by this pandemic, including many un-paid carers.

We are currently working to harness some of the fantastic volunteer-led community networks that have emerged over the past few weeks so that they can continue to make a positive contribution to the district in the future.

In the meantime, I wholeheartedly thank everyone who has gone above and beyond at this critical time; your efforts are something that everyone in this district should be extremely proud of.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Cllr Phil King,

Leader of Harborough District Council » Less

Memorial Green Refurbishment

Memorial Green Refurbishment

Posted: Mon, 01 Jun 2020 13:39 by Alexis Biggs

You may have noticed while out on your 'lockdown walks' that we have been working on a refurbishment of the Memorial Green. We are pleased to report that the latest work has been completed and the Memorial is now surrounded by a new paved pathway and post and chain fencing. We hope that you will agree that it is now looking lovely. Over the past year or so there has been work on the memorial itself, and we installed the new bench to commemorate 100 years since WW1. The lamppost on the corner has also had a refurb and paint, courtesy of Mercer's, the builders currently working on Brookfields. More »

The only thing left to do are the borders, our groundsmen are working on this. Like everyone else they have suffered at the hands of Coronavirus and are having trouble getting summer bedding plants, but we expect this to be resolved shortly. » Less
