LE16 runs up for second innings

PR and marketing company LE16 Communications is marking its second season of sponsorship for a local youth cricket team with a load of balls!

The company, based in Cottingham near Market Harborough, has paid for the purchase of new cricket balls for the Under-15s team at East Carlton Cricket Club in a deal which builds on the company’s sponsorship of the team’s shirts at the start of the last season.
LE16 Director Jane Smith said: “It’s great to be associated with the team for another year. Cricket is all about keeping your eye on the ball and that certainly applies to our line of business, so we thought that this particular donation was more than appropriate!”

East Carlton’s Under-15s team is currently joint top of the Corby & District Wilson Browne Youth Cricket League and is celebrating its success after winning the recent
Desborough 6-a-side tournament in a nail-biting final that went right to the last ball.

Roger Smith, East Carlton Cricket Club Under-15s Manager, added: “The purchase of equipment is crucial to the running of the team. We’re extremely grateful to companies like LE16 who give us the financial support we need to get young people of all ages involved in cricket.”

Established in 2003, LE16 Communications is a regional PR and marketing agency with national experience. The company’s two directors, Jane Smith and Pete Bowman, have a combined track record of over 35 years in the financial, retail, business-to-business, travel and public sectors.

Rewired - an exhibition of wirework and paintings

Make the most of Museums and Galleries Month this May with a visit to Leicestershire County Council’s Melton Library Art Gallery.

The theme of the national celebration is “Objects of Desire – the art of collecting” and Shepshed-based artist Sue Clews will be showing an eclectic collection of her desirable wirework, paintings and jewellery.
Sue’s hand-constructed wire designs include sculptural pieces, beaded hangings and ‘woven’ wire boxes made from recycled electrical wire and beads.
“My inspiration is taken from mosaics, patchwork and ancient bejewelled textiles,” says Sue, “but my work is experimental – sometimes I don’t know what a piece is going to be until I finish it.”

The exhibition opens on Friday 6th May and continues until Thursday 16th June.

Painting Colour - an exhibition at Melton Library Art Gallery


Pure colour is the subject of April’s exhibition at
Leicestershire County Council’s Melton Library Art Gallery, which features the paintings of Leicester artist Karl Indans.

Karl aims to avoid all reference to nature in his work, and to focus entirely on colour and the process of painting.
Inspired by “colour field” artists such as Mark Rothko, Karl works with strong saturated colours, which are applied in broad strokes, and built up in layers on square canvases.

The results are vivid, bold splashes and sweeps of colour which attract the eyes and provide an exciting visual experience.

“I loved Karl’s work when I saw it on display in last year’s Hidden Treasures exhibition in Leicester,” said Ruth Pointer, local librarian and exhibition organiser, “and I think it will appeal to many of our visitors – so don’t miss it!”

Painting Colour is on display from Monday 4 until Friday 29 April at normal library opening times.

Look out for details on

Melton Library opening hours are:-
Monday 09:00 - 19:00 hours
