Delayed opening celebrations at an independent in Kibworth because of Covid-19 will finally happen later this month, a year after it opened.

Staff at Edmonds and Slatter’s fourth practice have planned an open day on June 26 with scratch card promotions, a charity raffle and special guest Callum Parkinson, captain of Leicestershire County Cricket Club.

Emma Sturgess, practice manager, said: ‘We are looking forward to meeting and greeting the residents of Kibworth and being able to show them everything Edmonds and Slatter has to offer. It will be an exciting day with full collections of designer spectacle frames displayed alongside nibbles and drinks in the practice.’
