HRH Prince Philip
Duke of Edinburgh
10 June 1921 - 9 April 2021

We are all deeply saddened to hear that HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh passed away on the morning of 9 April 2021 at Windsor Castle. The Duke supported his country over many decades with the upmost dedication and distinction.

He was a much-loved member of our monarchy and will be sorely missed.

The Chairman of Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council, elected members and staff would like to extend our sincere sympathy to his wife, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and all members of the Royal family at this truly upsetting time.

As a mark of respect, during the mourning period, the flag at Jubilee Green on Main Street will fly at half-mast.

Further announcements will be made by the Royal Family in due course www.royal.uk.

A virtual book of condolence is available for people to sign at https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/book-of-condolence

Dog theft - advice from Leicestershire Police

Dog theft - advice from Leicestershire Police

We are experiencing an increase in dog theft reports and are asking the public to be wary of this new wave of crime across the county.

The demand for puppies has increased as people have been working from home and other social distractions are limited. This demand has created a surge in puppy thefts, as the price of dogs has almost doubled in some cases.

We want people to help to spread this safety message to prevent much loved pets being targeted by criminals. More »

The attached pdf document gives a great deal of advice. » Less
