I am Nina's brother. True in part that Fleckney is in her books. Not sure what the level of readership is on this site? Obvs, do read Ninas books. I am more interested in my 2 very good friends Claire Parker and Danea Stevens with whom I suffered village life but haven't seen since 1978. If you can help me make contact do let me know - 07801819916. Jeremy

One of Nina Stibbe's books (Love Nina) has been made into a BBC 1 drama.I think that makes her the most famous person to have lived in the village.

Has any one read the book "Man at the Helm" by Nina Stibbe? Its about life in Fleckney or Flatstone as she calls it. It's not very flatering but still a pretty good read.

I am looking for an old photograph in a newspaper that featured my grandma, Iris Doreen Susan Booth (known as Sue). It was a May Day parade celebration and the photo was of the May Queen and other children in related costumes. My grandma was born in 1931 and she thinks she was about 6/7 when she was in the photo, but this is a guess. Anyone with any info please contact me. Many thanks.

I read the fleckney communicator a few months ago and hear that steve robson has been appointed full time pastor at New life Christian fellowship. from what I,ve been told this man was one of the leaders responsible for kicking out the former new life pastor!

I left the village 30 years ago and it seems that not much has changed. Now that I am retired I plan to visit my mates and I am sure we can have a good time just like the old days.

Thank God I still can spell!

I used to live in Fleckney from 73 - 77. I was 11 when I left to move to Godalming. We used to live in one of the new houses on the corner of Albert Street and Park Road. My mum Anne used to work at the Smelting Works in the High Street - now called Forge Close and also became the Cub leader for Fleckney Cubs and Scouts. Looking at Google street view the old house looks exactly the same but the farm in the High Street we used to go scrumpying in has gone!! Is it now another housing estate?

I have a good few short years there even though then it seemed like a lifetime :)

We are from Australia and will be soon visiting England for an extended holiday. My wife and I are looking at renting a property in Fleckney for eighteen months and we are wondering if there is a bus service between Fleckney and Leicester. If there is a service could you please provide details where I can view a timetable.
