BONFIRE NIGHT 

Thank you to all those who attended the annual Bonfire and Fireworks night on Tuesday 5th November at Weobley Village Hall. It was another fantastic evening with a splendid display by Jubilee Fireworks, who did a wonderful job.

POST OFFICE

The mobile post office now visits the village once a week on a Tuesday at 11am. It is parked in Portland Street.

VACANCY

Weobley Parish Council has a vacancy for a Councillor. Please contact the Parish Clerk for further information if you would like to be considered for co-option. The Council meets ten times a year and is responsible for the Library and public conveniences, Back Lane, the play area behind Hopelands Village Hall and the Rose Garden. It is currently developing a number of projects including new signage and interpretation boards and the skate park.

TRAFFIC AND PARKING ISSUES

The Parish Council is aware that the village is becoming increasingly congested with traffic, reaching gridlock on some occasions, with street parking, including instances of illegal or inconsiderate parking, adding to the problem.

The village roads were not designed for the level of traffic or the size of vehicles we are now experiencing, nor for the increase in car ownership and the need for somewhere to park. Development traffic has only added to the problem and the increase in village residences will ultimately mean more vehicles using the roads.

The Council is trying to address this issue but there is, of course, no quick and easy solution. A working group has been tasked to identify the areas with the worst issues and investigate any options for alleviating or improving the situation.
