New look Parish Magazine coming soon . . . .

We’ve all had a little extra time on our hands over the past few months and whilst the lockdown has put many activities on hold, we've been using the time to give the Weobley Parish Newsletter a bit of a make-over.

The newlook magazine will be published next month in digital format and FREE to download from this website. If you would like a printed copy, we hope to have a few copies available which can be reserved by contacting the Parish Clerk at clerk@weobleyparishcouncil.org.uk or calling 07393 344830.

 

VILLAGE NEWS ROUNDUP

if you are looking for further information about any of the topics listed below, please contact  the Clerk to the Parish Council by e-mail at clerk@weobleyparishcouncil.org.uk

Neighbourhood Watch is about people getting together with their neighbours to take action to reduce crime by developing a close relationship between community members and the local police.

We are now looking for a neighbourhood watch co-ordinator for the village , so if you think you could be our neighbourhod watch co-ordinator, it would be great to gear from you. For more information contact the Parish Clerk at clerk@weobleyparishcouncil.org.uk

If you need additional help and support during the lockdown, Herefordshire's Talk Community Covid-19 Response Team will provide help and support for those most vulnerable or who are self-isolating. Further information can be  found at https://www.gov.uk/find-coronavirus-support

.... well now might be the right time as we are currently looking to recruit two new members to the Council. As a parish councillor, you will be someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support - a community leader  - with the power to influence decisions for the benefit of the people you serve. The role in voluntary, so I'm afraid you won't be paid for your time!

The best way to find out what it’s like to be a parish councillor is to talk to someone who’s doing it now. Come along to the next parish council meeting, speak to one of the current members and find out what they think about the job or contact the Clerk to the Parish Council by e-mail on clerk@weobleyparishcouncil.org.uk

After years of planning and months of construction, Weobley's new skate park is now open. Unfortuantely due to COVID-19 restrictions we will not be having the hoped for 'Grand Opening' which will have to wait until later in the year.

With an increasing number of potholes appearing in the carpark, repair work has been scheduled and which is hoped to be completed in the coming months.

There are currently no nedw works planned.

Upgrades to improve and expand the existing CCTV facilities around the village are currently underway, with activity being closely monitored by the Police.

Unfortunately, the building is suffering from old age and is in need of repair, with work needed on the roof and chimneys along with some internal repairs to damage caused by damp.

This means that builders will be working onsite over the coming months, but we will try to keep any disruption to a minimum.

We will soon be luanching our new Parish Council News Magazine. Watch out for your copy on-line (you can also arrange to have a copy sent directly to your e-mail in-box by completing the request box at the bottom of this page) or a printed copy coming through your letter box.

Anti-social behaviour and petty vandalism is unfortunately no strange to the village and is on the increase. The Police are investigating any incidents and are working with the community to identify the culprits.

If you are witness to or have knowledge of any incidents that have taken place, we would ask you to report these, either on 999 (for emergencies) or 101 – or if you prefer to do this anonymously, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

We have been looking at a number of proposals for the garden including the need for new drainage and the installation of electrical cabling.

Work has unfortunately been delayed due to the COVID-19 restrictions, but we hope to get things moving again as soon as possible.

A number of the recently planted trees have been uprooted or snapped in-half
