Parish Council Chat

It was good to see so many people at the Parish Assembly earlier in the

month including representatives from all kinds of organisations that

are active in the Parish. Reports were received from each one about

their doings over the year ranging from the straightforward monetary

accounts to the lively programme at the school – it never was so much

fun learning in the past. Next year we hope even more will come to

find out what is going on around us.

One of our current interests is the proposed bio-digester near the

A606. It may be too late to register your comments but the residents

of Pickwell have been very active and have gathered many opinions. A

major concern is the likely increased traffic on Stygate Lane which is a

perpetual annoyance with HGVs using Pickwell Main Street to access

premises further on. We are doing all we can to mitigate this.

Managing traffic is a problem throughout the Parish with reducing

speeding of particular importance. We will have the Community

Speedwatch teams out later this year which may only calm vehicles for

a short while but does provide evidence when we want better

enforcement or a reduction in the speed limit such as between

Somerby and Pickwell.

By the time you read this three Parish Councillors, David Vurley,

Howard Blakebrough and John Crosby, will be at the end of their time

in office, and fellow councillors and the wider community wish to

thank them for the many years contributing to the welfare of the

Parish and its people. However others will ensure that the work goes

on; Pat Fynn, Bernard Pentecost, Lynne Camplejohn and Carl Powell

are set to continue so if you have any concerns where you need help

do contact us. We are quite ‘user friendly’ and if we can’t provide

solutions hopefully we can suggest someone who can.

Mayor’s Awards 2019

On Monday the 8th April a small group, friends of Mel Davies, started to

gather on the car park next to Melton Borough Council (MBC) offices for

what was to be a very special event. We had arrived at the Mayor’s Awards -

a ceremony to honour the unsung heroes from across Melton Borough.

It had all started for Mel a few weeks earlier. A letter arrived one weekend

from MBC and it wasn’t about the Council Tax! It was for something

conveying good and surprising news, very welcome after a hard week’s work.

Mel’s letter had come from the Mayor of Melton, Cllr. Pru Chandler, and it

told her that she had won an ‘Award of Merit’ for her voluntary community


When we were all sat in our places in the Civic Suite the Mayor introduced

the event and praised all the worthy nominees who had been put forward for

recognition by Cllrs. and residents from across the Borough.

We were all proud and delighted for Mel when the moment came for her to

be called up to receive her Award of Merit. The citation read by the Mayor

was as follows:


“Mel Davies has been an active member of the community since moving to

Somerby in May 2000 and is always the first volunteer for any local event;

organises community activities and events such as Camera Club, Somerby

Singers, litter picks and more – these activities draw the community together

and benefit people in the parish (ranging from those at primary school, to

those with an interest in the environment); regularly attends and contributes

to Parish Council meetings; is a great motivator, encouraging people who

may not have considered joining in village activities to participate and

contribute themselves; has undertaken fundraising for Somerby Memorial

Hall, initiating and organising events.”

Following the conclusion of the presentations we all enjoyed a lovely buffet

provided by MBC, which brought a super evening to a close. The gettogether

had allowed for us all to celebrate Mel’s marvellous commitment to

her local community. Mel we salute you, one of the people who make

Melton Borough a great place to live.

Vic Allsop

Please join Friends of Somerby School (FOSS) for our

Summer fun fundraisers.

On Saturday 1st June we will be hosting a dog walk, setting off from

Then join us on Friday 5th July at 6.30pm for a rounders evening at

Somerby playing field, enjoy refreshments and a (hopefully) beautiful

summer evening.

Both events are open to all and we hope to see lots of you there to

support our great little school and all the brilliant events they have

planned for the children during the summer term and beyond!

Discover your local heritage with the Festival of

Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology

Saturday 29th June – Sunday 28th July, 2019

This summer, help celebrate the rich and fascinating heritage of our two counties. Explore the archaeology

of your local area, watch experts at work and experience the excitement of archaeology with have-a-go


On Saturday 29th June the Leicestershire and Rutland Festival of Archaeology – the UK’s biggest

archaeology festival – begins; and with over 80 events planned over four weeks, this year’s event promises

to be bigger and better than before.

The Festival has something for everyone, with family friendly activities at museums, guided walks of our

counties’ historic sites, talks by experts, displays and exhibitions, and chances to get your hands dirty with

a bit of excavation.

Whether it’s a visit to the excavations at Bradgate Park to find out more about the childhood home of Lady

Jane Grey; or a tour of the Glenfield Tunnel, one of the earliest steam railway tunnels in the world; or a

chance to build your own Roman Leicester in Minecraft, there are all sorts of fantastic and unique

opportunities to explore thousands of years of secrets hidden beneath your feet.

This year the festival in Leicestershire and Rutland runs for four weeks from Saturday 29th June to Sunday

28th July, and includes the Council for British Archaeology’s nationwide Festival of Archaeology (13th –

28th July).

The Festival brings together local archaeological organisations to showcase all that is great about our local

archaeological heritage.

Peter Liddle, Festival convenor, commented: “We are extremely pleased with this year’s programme. There

is something for all the family, from children’s craft events at museums around the county to serious


“We are particularly proud of the guided walks programme that grows every year, giving people the chance

to explore sites with a local expert who can explain its unique history.”

From May, Festival leaflets will be widely available from your local museum, library or tourist information

centre (and many other places across Leicestershire and Rutland).

The programme will also be accessible to downloaded online at

Festival, visit https://festival.archaeologyuk.org/
