Inside The Vine magazine you will find all sorts of local clubs, activities, events and news from all across the area around you helping you to find out what is going on in your neighbouring communities and all of those things that you’d just love to get involved with!

It’s an important value to us here at The Vine to help keep our local communities thriving by supporting local businesses, if we don’t support what’s on our doorstep then we will soon see it disappearing.

The Vine is a free bi-monthly magazine that is distributed all around the local communities – to see where you can pick up the latest copy please click on theDistributiontab at the top of this page!

It’s that time of year again when where we’re moving swiftly into those lovely, warmer, sunnier months and with a period of chocolate gorging on the horizon. Sounds like a winner to us, with April and indeed Easter just around the corner.

A tasty little article on the origins of the humble – yet magical! – Easter Egg is sandwiched between offerings from Conkers’ (Easter Half-Term Fun) and the Great Central Railway (and its Easter Vintage Festival).

Between which, we shine a little light on the very pleasant market town of Ashby de la Zouch…from what the good folk at TripAdvisor have to say to a precis on the ever-popular Ashby Arts Festival…we bring you a polite introduction to what this affable, bustling community is keen to offer, to both locals and visitors alike.

Keeping with a keen sense of provision, we’ve plenty of challenges to bring to your attention, all in support of some great charities, from the Watermead Challenge Charity Run, to the Charity Link 3 Peaks’ Hike, LOROS’ Charity Golf Day and the Leicestershire Round & Hound, where your beloved pooch can also participate, as well as raise funds with their own separate sponsorship form too, what a cute idea!

Finally, we’d like to take this opportunity to highlight Leicestershire County Council’s “Foster Homes Needed” item on page 19 (and their advert on the inside back cover) alongside their recently launched drive to find people willing to share their lives and open their homes, in particular to, babies, teenagers and sibling groups of two or more. If you can help, or know someone that may be able to, why not get in touch with the team.

…and with a full magazine ahead of you, we’ll leave you in peace now to enjoy the read.

Until next time,

All the best
