Rain­bows build­ing work to start

THE long-awaited start on build­ing Rain­bows’ hospice was due to get un­der­way.

Lawyers han­dling the le­gal as­pect of the hospice had reached an agree­ment on the 999 year lease.

Quorn devel­op­ers, Fairmeadow Ltd had do­nated the site and the build­ing to Rain­bows and hand­ing over the Charn­wood bor­ough Coun­cil the free­hold of the land so as to protect it from al­ter­na­tive use in the fu­ture.

Wait un­til the next cen­tury for roads

IT WAS an­nounced that Lough­bor­ough’s two main road build­ing projects, the Epinal Way ex­ten­sion and the in­ner re­lief road, would not be go­ing ahead un­til the 21st cen­tury.

The news from County Hall dis­mayed and an­gered lo­cal politi­cians and busi­nesses.

The Epinal Way scheme, from Shelthorpe to Quorn would not go ahead be­fore 2001-2002 and peo­ple would have to wait un­til 2005 for the in­ner re­lief road.
