Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

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.
