St Peter’s apologises to those who receive the VILLAGE LINK church magazine that there is no hard copy of the magazine being delivered this month (for obvious reasons!) HOWEVER there is a downloadable version for anyone who would like to read it, on the church website

Thank you Mary Gibson for producing this month’s Junction 22 Church Magazine.

Geoff, who usually organises the distribution of the hard copy magazines to local deliverers, has asked me to assure those who regularly subscribe to the Junction 22 Magazine in Thornton, Bagworth, Stanton under Bardon, Markfield and Copt Oak that your £5 subscription for 2020 will eventually provide you with ten hard copies of the magazine, as your subscription will be extended into 2021 and there will be a reduced subscription fee for the rest of next year. Thank you to those who usually deliver magazines. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we need your help again.

ps Please note the pdf is as would have been produced for printing. If just reading online the pages will be out of order (but manageable, once you realise). It is probably best to print it off!

Thornton Nurseries

Thornton Nursery reopened on the 13th May.

Opening hours are 9am to 5pm weekdays & 10am to 4pm at the weekend.

The click and collect service has now ceased.

They thank all their customers for supporting them through these difficult times.

Have introduced a new website to offer a ‘click and collect’ service during the Covid19 pandemic. www.

They have created this website for non contact collection orders during Covid 19. It may be a little rough round the edges (their words not mine) but it’s a work in progress.

You will be contacted when your order is ready to collect.

Please don’t get our of your car, they will come to assist you.

We hope you can find most of what you are looking for.

Unfortunately they do not offer delivery at this time.

If it’s not on the site its not available for collection at this time, they will be trying to add more products on the site as and when they are available.

They also have (at time of printing) a wheelbarrow on the front with vegetable plants for sale and an ‘honesty box’.

Thank you for your support – David, Ben & John Smith
