Service in memory of lost loved ones
VILLAGERS opposed to plans to create one of the biggest distribution parks in the world are launching a protest demonstration.
People concerned about the impact of the expansion of Magna Park will gather at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome before councillors meet there to discuss the developments.
ID Gazeley and db Symmetery both have applications to be determined by Harborough District Council which focus on the site.
If they are approved at the meeting on November 23 it will see Magna Park extend by a further 700,000 sq m.
Residents have continually voiced their opposition to the expansion but say the council is not listening.
They are unhappy the emerging local plan was updated in the summer to include a suggested growth of 700,000 sq m at Magna Park, when A SPECIAL service for loved ones lost is being held at Leicestershire hospice, Loros.
The annual gathering offers anyone, regardless of whether they have experienced Loros or not, to come together in remembrance.
The event, Light up a Life, takes place on Sunday December 3 with visitors getting the chance to sponsor a light on the hospice’s Christmas tree.
The lights will be switched on at the service which starts at 4.30pm.
As well as a light being lit up in memory of loved ones, the name of that person will be added to the hospice’s Book of Remembrance, which will be placed in the chapel for visitors to view over the festive period.
While the service will be taking place on the hospice grounds, outside, the hospice will be open for those who wish to visit the chapel.
Those wanting to sponsor a light can donate online up until November 27 if they want their loved ones name added to the Remembrance Book too.
If people don’t want to attend the service but would like to remember a loved one by donating to the Light up a Life campaign, they can do so either online or by calling the Loros fundraising team up until January 31 on 0116 231 8431.
