Our Mission, Aims & Objectives  Andrew Southerden (Chairman) Dr Kevin Feltham David Adams Emma Tilley Robin Hollick Dr Eddie May Mission The Kibworth Improvement Team is a community partnership being formed to improve the health and well being of “Kibworth” (Kibworth Beauchamp, Kibworth Harcourt and Smeeton Westerby) residents, businesses and visitors. The partnership will act as a conduit to enable the aspirations of the residents to be realised through the Kibworth Improvement Team Community Action Plan, and to identify key development needs for the villages. Aims & Objectives To promote and support improvements in “Kibworth” as a place to live, work, visit and do business in, with particular (but not exclusive) focus on: Environment & Transport Health, Culture & Leisure Local Economy and Marketing Safe & Secure Communities Education & Lifelong Learning We will promote partnership working between public and private bodies, individuals and groups involved in change or improvements in “Kibworth”. We will promote equality of opportunity in all areas of our work, with particular focus on promoting social cohesion within the community.  The partnership will study the services and facilities available in “Kibworth”, active community groups, crime levels and other factors which help to build a picture of “Kibworth” at the moment. A few ideas of the activities that KiT might undertake: Promote the Kibworth Village website Run the Kibworth Logo competition Produce the Kibworth Guide Booklet Help develop a Community Action Plan for next few years Help organise Christmas Events – Late Night Shopping, Village   Christmas Trees etc. Help organise Summer Events – Kibworth Carnival? Improve Kibworth Bus Guides Support Community clean-up campaigns This is why KiT needs representatives from a wide range of local organisations: YOU have the local knowledge YOU want responsibility for local action YOU want to see a thriving community YOU want safe and attractive villages YOU acknowledge that change is not just a threat but an opportunity So how can YOU get involved? YOU can attend the KiT monthly meetings or join the Steering Group. YOU may be fired up by only one or two projects - that’s okay,  join us to work on them and make them happen. YOU can become a community champion and develop your own themed projects. Whatever YOU choose to do then you will be joining a diverse and committed community group and in return you will meet new people, learn new skills, and feel the sense of achievement that comes from making things happen and sustaining the communities in Kibworth & Smeeton. If the community really gets involved then things will happen – it’s all about YOU!
