I got the following email from Ray Hurst of the County Council. He asks that residents be made aware of the current situation.

Dear Sir, Madam

As we mentioned at the public meeting in January we would inform residents of the decisions made by Leicestershire County Council’s Cabinet. The future of Mountsorrel library and results from the recent consultation were considered by Cabinet on Tuesday, 1 March 2016 2.00 pm.

With regards to Mountsorrel library, the County Council Cabinet agreed that further lease discussions be undertaken with the landlord of the Mountsorrel library premises and other relevant parties and that recommendations be made to the Cabinet on 19 April 2016;

The report noted that constructive discussions with the landlord of the Mountsorrel library are currently ongoing which may present an opportunity for the Mountsorrel War Memorial Trust (MWMT), or a similar body, formed by the landlord to take over the running of the library in the spirit of the intention behind the County Council’s support package. It is hoped that these discussions will be sufficiently advanced to enable a recommendation to the Cabinet at its meeting in April”

The full report can be seen via this link:

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that this coming weekend 24th/25th October is the opening of the restored Mountsorrel Railway and the newly built Mountsorrel Station on Bond Lane, just up the road from Stonehurst Farm.

Volunteers from Mountsorrel and the surrounding villages have spent the past 8 years restoring the railway. This is the same volunteer group that are currently building the community heritage centre on Swithland Lane.

The Great Central Railway will be operating the trains. Return tickets are £5 adults and £3 children. Advance tickets can be purchased from the GCR web site at the following link http://www.gcrailway.co.uk/special-events/mountsorrel-railway-opening-weekend-24-25-oct/ which also has full details of the event. Tickets will still be available to buy on the day (cash only).

This is a one off event and will be the only opportunity to have a ride along the line for the for foreseeable future.

Hope you can join us for what we hope will be a very special weekend.

Steve Cramp

Mountsorrel Railway Project Leader (volunteer)

Several Leicestershire Bus Services Get a Makeover!

We’re giving several local bus services in Leicestershire a makeover from Sunday 20 September 2015 making bus travel even more popular and a viable alternative to using the car.

Service 126: Leicester – Loughborough – Shepshed - Coalville

Service 127: Leicester – Loughborough – Shepshed

Revised timetable introduced. Service 127 will run up to every 12 minutes daytime Monday to Saturday between Leicester and Shepshed, The Ox-Lea calling at Birstall, Rothley, Quorndon and Loughborough. Service 126 will now operate on Monday to Saturday evenings only. Service 16 is extended from Thringstone to Loughborough via Shepshed replacing service 126 daytime Monday to Saturday and will run up to every 30 minutes daytime Monday to Saturday.

Our fleet of double deck buses are getting a makeover, sit back, relax and travel in style with Arriva’s ‘Posh and Double Deck’ buses on the 126/127 between Leicester, Loughborough and Shepshed. With FREE Wi-Fi and enhanced seating along with improvements to the route and timetable we’re making every journey a pleasure trip*.

Steve Smith, Arriva Midlands Leicester Area Manager said:

"The changes being made to service 127 provide an increased service to The Meadows area and Shepshed with buses running up to every 12 minutes. Our revised timetable has also been designed to improve the punctuality on this very popular service.”

Hello, does anyone have any comments to make on all the housing development taking place in our area. There is 250 houses by William Davies on Mountsorrel Lane, 170 houses Brookfields Farm estate,175 houses on Westfield Lane, 150 houses on Westcross Lane.

In the last few weeks we have learned of plans for 1,500 homes between Rothley and Birstall and 4,500 homes in Thurmaston which will be a significant loss to our green space.

Who has started the rumour that the parish council tax is going to go up by a third?

As far as I knew, the meeting to discuss this issue isn't until next Monday (the 12th Jan 2015, 7pm) in the Parish Rooms.

Three people have complained to me, so far, this week about the rise. I asked them to come along to Monday's meeting. My guess is that no-one will attend to see the wheels of local democracy in motion - which I find quite depressing.

Like any meeting of the Parish Council, this one will start with a period of "public participation" when any villager can raise any issue that affects the village.

Crime no: LC/05012/14-0

Did you witness a burglary in Mountsorrel in which two men entered a house in Rothley Road and assaulted the occupant?

The incident happened at 7.30pm on Saturday November 29.

The men demanded money and assaulted the victim, a 46-year old woman, to the hand and face. She received minor injuries but managed to get the suspects out of the house without them taking any property.

Both suspects are described as white, between 17 and 22 years and of average build. One was wearing a hooded ‘Lonsdale’ top and the other was wearing a black jacket and red cap.

Officers have been carrying out house-to-house enquiries and distributing leaflets to residents to make them aware of the incident.

If you witnessed the burglary or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time, please contact PC 1948 Chris Hayton on 101.

Please follow the instructions to leave a message for the officer and when prompted key in the officer’s identification number. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, which is free and anonymous, on 0800 555 111.

Residents of Balmoral Road and other parts of the area off Walton Way are rightly concerned about the purchase of small plots of land at the back of their houses. This shows the irresponsible attitude of Jelsons the original developers of this area. Normally when separation belts of land and small green areas around footpaths, which are left after the development is built, revert to the Borough Council. Jelsons has sold them on for profit, ignoring the wishes of the people living in the houses they built. Their website claims "Handing over the keys is just a small part of our care package that begins before, and lasts well beyond, the moving-in date.".
They are also planning to build 300 more houses off Halstead Road.
Lets bombard their email address (salesteam@jelson.co.uk) with complaints about how they care for their residents.

For many years residents have been able to get to the Playing fields through a entrance/exit built at the back of now Slate & Indian Restaurant.

Signs all over the place saying Private property - so I am confussed - why would a professional entance/exit gate be built there then by the Parish Council many years ago??

I beleive it is the most used entrance to the Park...........have you tried getting around the alternative routes suggested......The Memorial way is a joke!.

I may just boycott and stop ordering food from them as a result if it does Turn out they are within their rights to close the entrance/exit off.

The County Council have scheduled roadworks in the village tomorrow (29th Jan) while closes the main road through the Market Place.

The diversion for buses will be:
County Bound: Normal route to the Green, turn right down Leicester Road to the Bypass, along the bypass & back down Granite Way, resuming the normal route to Quorn at Budgens
City Bound: Normal route to Budgens, Turn left along Granite Way to the Bypass, along the Bypass to Rowena, back along Leicester Road to the Green & then resume normal route.

Two things spring to mind.
(1) some drivers will take the "usual" diversion down Linkfield Road by mistake.
(2) With heavy rain forecast tonight then Granite Way may be flooded. At present there appears to be no Plan "B".

Hi Everyone,

History will be made this coming Saturday November 23rd, when the first steam hauled passenger train will run along the restored Mountsorrel Railway.

6 years of hard work by community volunteers from Mountsorrel, the surrounding villages and even as far away as Paris, have brought the old railway back to life.

The first train is a private charter for the volunteers who have worked to restore the railway and is not open to the general public. It will be a few months yet before the line can open to general passengers.

Never the less, it will still be possible for you to come and see the train from the line side. The new Nunckley Trail foot path will be open at Nunckley Hill giving excellent views of this historic event. Hope you can come and see. The train should arrive around 1:15pm.

For further details please see the project website www.mountsorrelrailway.org.uk

Best wishes to you all,

Steve Cramp

I have come across an old 1950's Renamel style bolt-on car badge. It is marked: "Mountsorrel Competition" and has the Rolls-Royce Motor Car Club monogram in the center. Does anyone know anything about this badge?
Thank you.
P.s. Please copy your reply to me via my email (badge@chessf.co.uk)

I have had the following flyer stuffed through my letterbox earlier today:

Jelson homes invites you to a "Community Consultation Event" at the Parish Rooms, Leicester Road, Mountsorrel on Tuesday 23rd April between 3:30pm & 8:00pm.

As you may be aware previous planning applications for residential development comprising up to 315 dwellings on land off Halstead Road have been turned down by Charnwood Borough Council.

Jelson Homes are now working with Key Stakeholders to develop a smaller scheme of up to 220 dwellings and are keen to receive residents views on these revised proposals.

Residents will be able to view draft plans for the site, provide views & ideas, ask questions & discuss any concerns. We will be asking attendees to complete a short feedback questionnaire.

If you are unable to attend this event but would like further information, please contact Katherine Smith, 0121 609 8650 or at katherine.smith@gva.co.uk

To try and address the issue of the unreliability of the 126/7 services Arriva have juggled around with the times of some of their buses. A few run a little earlier & a few are now scheduled to run a little later.

A copy of the new timetable is available from their travel shop in SMBS. It is also available at www.arrivabus.co.uk

As there are a goodly number of re-timings then i won't try to list them all here.
