  • Duke of EdinburghDuke of Edinburgh

The Mayor of Charnwood, councillors and officers of Charnwood Borough Council are deeply saddened at the news of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.

The Mayor of Charnwood, Cllr David Snartt, said: "This is a very sad day for our nation and on behalf of the borough of Charnwood, I would like to express our sincerest condolences to the Royal Family.

"The Duke of Edinburgh selflessly served our country for so many years and earned the respect of not just this nation, but of those around the world.

"Now is a time for mourning, but we should remember the Duke with pride and affection."

Flags are being flown at half-mast at the Council's main office and at Loughborough Town Hall.

DUCK POND LANE - ROAD SAFETY

Following concerns raised at the last meeting of the Parish Council, a letter has been sent to Leicestershire County Council requesting Road Safety Improvements on Duck Pond Lane.

The Parish Council is in full support of the concerns raised by County Councillor Mrs Brenda Seaton and have requested urgent attention to road safety at this location.

Councillor Seaton has requested that consideration is given to lowering the speed limit for the entire road, improving warning signage to the junction, and improving the way vehicles are forced to exit the junction.

The main concern is the area of the junction, where many accidents have taken place, fortunately with no fatalities.

The accidents that have occurred at that junction have been a mixture of speed, poor visibility, a lack of signage as well as coming out of the junction almost blind because of the angle of the junction exit to the road.

According to Councillor Seaton, since our last correspondence back in July, there has been a further four accidents, one of which was serious.

Thurmaston Parish Council have requested that urgent consideration is given to lowering the speed limit for the entire road, improving warning signage to the junction, and improving the way vehicles are forced to exit the junction.

THURMASTON BOXING CLUB UPDATE ON CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES

BY SPENCER ATKIN

As promised, an update on Thurmaston Boxing Gym:-

I continue to work with Box England behind the scenes and had a zoom meeting with them last week. They wanted me to measure the gym, so we could follow Box England's Covid 19 guidelines. They informed me that due to the size of the gym, we could potentially only let in 4 people at a time to exercise, cannot share equipment and must be track and traced.

With all this in mind, we feel it is best to open again in March next year, when hopefully guidelines will change and even if they don't we could potentially start outdoor exercise classes, where we could offer this to larger groups.

I know this is a massive set back, but we have to follow rules and keep everyone safe!

On a more positive note:-

  • The Gym has had a revamp and a deep clean. The Gym is all now repainted, and all pictures/artwork are on the walls.
  • A gym bank account is open
  • All policies are up to date and I have just completed some updated Safeguarding training that covers Covid 19 risks.

I will continue to work behind the scenes and commit my time to getting this gym up and running.
