Glenfield Gala 2018

By the time you read this article Christmas will have been and gone and we will be ready to welcome in 2018. The Parish Council wishes all our residents a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Thank you to all the residents who came and enjoyed the switch on of the Christmas lights on Friday 1st December 2017. It was a lovely evening and lovely to see many residents enjoying the evening.

Glenfield Gala 2018
The Parish Council have decided to defer the Gala until 2019 to allow the Council to focus on the arrangements for the events to commemorate the end of WW1 in Nov 2018. Further details of these events will be published in the forthcoming editions of this magazine.

Youth Provision - BB19 Bus and The Reality Bus
The Parish Council have been advised by Blaby District Council, who operate the BB19 bus, that the bus is still operational but an MOT planned for the end of December 2017 may be an issue for its on-going use. As such Blaby District Council are currently looking at various options as to how youth provision may be provided in the future and unfortunately at this time the youth provision in Glenfield has ceased . Various options, which may include some form of alternative bus provision, are currently being collated by Blaby District Council and will be considered in due course. As valued partners, Blaby District Council will keep us updated as they know more and their plans develop for this valued Community Service. The Parish Council would also like to thank the Reality Youth Project for their services from September to December 2017 via their double decker reality Bus.

Tree Warden
Currently, Cllr. Roy Denney is our Tree Warden for Glenfield. However, he would eventually like to relinquish this role and so we are looking for anyone interested in becoming a Tree Warden for the Parish Council. As a volunteer, a tree warden is not expected to be an expert, but someone who is enthusiastic enough to want to expand their knowledge and understanding of trees and their local area. By knowing where and what your local trees are, and gathering information about them, you can help the Parish Council build an awareness of the type of practical help and advice which may be needed, possible threats to trees and project ideas. Local people are often the first to notice a problem or see an opportunity, and so tree wardens are a vital link between the local community and the parish council officers. Although tree wardens have no powers beyond those of a member of the public, tree wardens can be the first point of contact in the community and can report threats to trees quickly to the council's officers. This helps the council monitor and enforce tree preservation orders and planning consents far more effectively. Other issues such as vandalism and dying trees can also be monitored by the tree wardens. If you are interested in this role, write to us with your details to Park House, Stamford Street, Glenfield, Leicester, LE3 8DL.

National Tree Week, Hedge Tree Campaign and Walk in the Woods, also rely on the tree wardens if they are to be effective locally.
