Some tips on cutting down on your drinking ...

If you regularly drink more than 14 units a week, try these simple tips to help you cut down. (Fourteen units is equivalent to six pints of average-strength beer or 10 small glasses of low-strength wine).

Make a plan Before you start drinking, set a limit on how much you're going to drink.

Set a budget Only take a fixed amount of money to spend on alcohol.

Let them know If you let your friends and family know you're cutting down and it's important to you, you could get support from them.

Take it a day at a time Cut back a little each day

Make it a smaller one You can still enjoy a drink, but go for smaller sizes. Try bottled beer instead of pints, or a small glass of wine instead of a large one. Take a break Have several drink-free days each week.

The immediate effects of cutting down include: feeling better in the mornings being less tired during the day your skin may start to look better you'll start to feel fitter and you may stop gaining weight.


Hi Everyone,

In the email below I set out details of the planning application that has been submitted for a massive 'distribution campus' at junction 11 of the M42. If it is approved it will lead to a huge increase in HGV's on the A444 and cause chaos at junction 11 (in my opinion). It will also result in significant environmental damage to a beautiful area.

If you want to comment on the planning application you must do it NOW, as the opportunity to comment will probably end on 25th September. My email below tells you how to comment but you can also email the planning officer directly-james.knightley@nwleicestershire.gov.uk . 

Twycross parish council has objected to this application, and if you do wish to object I URGE YOU TO DO SO IMMEDIATELY AS OTHERWISE IT MAY BE TOO LATE.

Another major planning application I'm afraid! Could you circulate this a.s.a.p please as there is not much time to comment, and it is very important everyone is aware of what is proposed. Thanks.


I have recently been made aware that a planning application has been submitted for the development of land close to junction 11 of the M42. The application is not within Hinckley and Bosworth (or Twycross parish for that matter), but it is extremely close to Norton Juxta Twycross and will therefore have huge implications for us.

The application is for the construction of a distribution campus of 270 acres, together with associated offices and infrastructure, on land located in the triangle between the A444 and B5493, immediately adjacent to to the left of junction 11 of the M42 as you exit from the south. I believe it is hoped to create jobs for 3,000 people. So it will be a huge development,which will lead to a huge increase in cars and HGV's using junction 11 and surrounding roads.

The development will massively increase the numbers of cars and HGV's on the M42/A42 around junction11, and the M42 already struggles to cope with traffic, particularly at peak periods; there is no public transport to this site and it has no major settlement nearby so it is not a 'sustainable' location (in my opinion); and this is an area of open countryside used predominantly for farming, so there will be significant environmental issues.

You can comment on the application by visiting the website of North West Leicestershire District Council, and following the links on their planning pages to the planning applications section and entering planning application reference number 18/01443/FULM. 

I believe formal comments are required by 28th August, but this period may be extended as the application has such major implications for many local villages and local people. However, if you do wish to comment please do so as soon as possible, and if all else fails send an email or letter to North West Leicestershire!

Alan Davies (Chairman, Twycross parish council and Cock Lane resident.)
