We have had 2000 postcards produced with attractive pictures of the Church on the front and details of our community on the reverse. These are being delivered to all houses in the locality. So far most of Husbands Bosworth will have received one of these cards. The aim is to let people know we are open and that all are welcome. Raising our profile is important. If you would be willing to deliver any of the cards to the local villages please let me know. We are particularly keen on delivering to Sibbertoft, Welford, Theddingworth and Mowsley. Cards are available from the Church

It is also lovely that in this months Bosworth Bugle, St Mary's is featured on the front page. We also now have a website- https://
