The Parish Council understands the financial pressure parishioners feel at the moment around the Cost-of-Living Crisis that is gripping the nation. Whilst the Parish Council is very limited in the direct help it can give to parishioners, it can act as a noticeboard for everyone to hopefully gain help and advice from any of the local/national bodies who have initiatives and/or grants in place that will assist anyone who is facing financial issues.
Please visit this page on a regular basis to see updates on any information that has been passed onto the Parish Council.
If you are feeling the cold and want some where warm you can go for a chat and a hot drink then the following are running in the Parish:
All Saints Church, Sheepy Magna will be open between 10 am and 12 noon on weekdays during December, January, February and March to provide a warm place in which anyone can sit, make themselves a cup of tea or coffee and perhaps meet with friends and share a conversation.
It is already open on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Coffee and Conversation between
10 am and 12 noon.
This extra time is supported by a grant from Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council.
