Groby & Field Head Spotlight welcomes articles from readers. We'd like to hear your news, views and opinions on local issues.
The Spotlight is a village magazine and our readers enjoy stories about village life. Little snippets of local news really add to the community feel of the magazine, so please feel free to drop us a line - by post or email - and tell us what's happening in your part of Groby or Field head.
Here are some suggestions for your article:
Are you planning a local event? Send us brief details of what it is, when it takes place and how much it costs.
Are you a member of a group that meets in the village? Tell us what the aims of the group are, when it meets, and how to join.
Have you heard an interesting speaker at a local meeting? What was the talk about? And why was it so enjoyable?
Have any members of your family achieved something notable? This can range from passing their exams, qualifying for University, achieving sporting success, or winning an award.
Have you spotted an unusual bird, animal or other creature in the locality? Let readers know, so they can keep an eye out for it.
Do you have an unusual or absorbing hobby? Tell readers why you find it so fascinating.
Have you read a good book or seen a great film recently? Recommend it to our readers.
These are just a few ideas to help get you started. Remember - we're not looking for earth-shattering news or high quality journalism. If it needs editing or tweaking to make it suitable, we can do that for you.
We look forward to receiving regular contributions from our family of local readers!
