To everyone interested in Enderby village, the Enderby Heritage Group’s next meeting is on Monday 6th July 2015 and is their annual walk around the village.
The group meet at Enderby Civic Centre car park for starting at 7.30pm.
The weather report is looking a bit unpredictable for the first part, so attendees are being advised to bring a ‘brolly’ to be on the safe side!
The walk is aiming to finish at the New Inn so those taking part may want to bring a few pennies for a drink (the New Inn can provide tea and coffee if anyone prefers a hot beverage).
Other meeting dates in 2015 are:-
Monday 14 Sept – Enderby Workhouse (Blaby Union)
Monday 16 Nov – Another Enderby Artist. George Morland by Barbara Rowse
Early risers can make the most of their Saturday morning by getting to know the many birds of Fosse Meadows and their songs during a dawn chorus walk.
Meeting at 4.45am one of the park’s long standing volunteer rangers David Mitchell will guide people on a two hour leisurely walk around the nature reserve.
Mr. Mitchell said:
“This is a great chance to get to know the many birds and their songs at this magical hour and at this special time of year.”
The Fosse Meadows site, near Sharnford, has extensive paths through flower meadows and woodlands.
It is a good area for bird spotting, with a wildlife lake and bird hide.
The walk is open to anyone who is reasonably mobile, booking is not necessary and it is free of charge.
Simply meet at Fosse Meadows car park at 4.45am on Saturday May 11.

Elizabeth York organised a very enjoyable and informative walk around Enderby village for the July meeting of the Enderby Heritage Group.
The walk gave those participating an insight into how families lived in the 1800’s, how the village expanded over the years, and the local connections between the Marsden and Rawson families.
The evening was full of extreamely interesting, and some very tragic stories.
Thanks go to Elizabeth and all members that attended.
Next meeting: 17th September – Enderby Wills (Part 2).
