Enderby Heritage Group re-jig meetings as Leicester City Football Club celebrate with open-top bus city tour

heritage mary sloaneEnderby Heritage Group have re-jigged a planned special viewing of the excellent Mary Sloane art exhibition at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.

Following on from the Leicester City Football Club’s confirmation as the Barclay’s Premier League Champions, the football club have arranged their open-top bus tour of Leicester city centre to take place on Monday 16th May, which coincides with the original planned date for a special viewing of the Mary Sloane art exhibition.

The LCFC’s bus tour is planned to commence at 6pm and finish at Victoria Park at 7pm, with the celebrations continuing through until 9pm.

The route will force road closures and its anticipated will involve thousands of people making their way to Leicester to line the route, etc.

In a statement, Elizabeth York from the Heritage Group says that they have been contacted by the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery pointing out likely difficulties in the area.

The Heritage Group congratulate Leicester City Football Club on their amazing achievement but agree with the Museum and Art Gallery and think it is prudent to rearrange the Art Gallery visit.

As a consequence, the Group have re-jigged the next couple of meetings.

To clarify…..
Monday 16th May 2016 – we will bring forward the Enderby Walk – meet as usual at 7.30pm Enderby Civic Centre Car Park

Monday 27th June 2016 – rearranged special viewing of the Mary Sloane art exhibition at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery. 7.15pm – 9.15pm

The Heritage Group apologise for any inconvenience and hope everyone understand why the arrangements needed to be amended.

Snaps from dementia walks go on display

An exhibition showing Blaby district through the eyes of people living with dementia and their carers opens in Leicester next Monday (October 10th) to mark World Mental Health day.

The photographs were taken during a series of summer ‘dementia walks’ organised by Blaby District Council and will be on display at Vaughan College, St Nicholas Place, until Friday November 4.

As part of the programme adults with dementia and their carers completed 12 countryside walks armed with a digital camera and supported by a professional photographer to create a record of their journeys.

Victoria Smith, the Council’s health improvement officer said:

“The group took some fantastic photographs which we hope portray the enjoyment they found in walking.”

For more information on the exhibition or other projects for carer’s in Blaby district contact the Council’s health and leisure team on leisure@blaby.gov.uk or 0116 272 7703.
