In this week’s Herald


In this week’s Herald we have the first in our Christmas Angels series, featuring those who go the extra mile for no other reason than that they care. Zoe Rashwan was so touched by the plight of homeless people in winter she took matters into her own hands.

Meanwhile controversial plans for 400 homes at Long Marston got the green light, while the ill-fated lights on the Tramway Bridge went out yet again.

KES was named the best secondary school in the Midlands and a pioneering Ilmington scientist hit the shortlist to appear on the new £50 note.

Santa has announced the routes for this year’s sleigh tour of the town and we have two special picture features showing all the festive goings-on as the district gears up for Christmas.  

Plus we have a packed arts section of reviews and news, including the return of Caroline Quentin to the RSC.

Free in this week’s Herald is also the festive December issue of Focus; a chance to win a family pass to the MAD museum and a marble machine and all the sports news from your area.
