Can you spare a couple of hours each month?

It takes a huge amount of work to keep the Play Area and Skate Park in tip-top condition. Something that cannot be achieved without the help and support of an amazing team of volunteers - someone like you.

We desperately need your help. Can you spare a couple of hours each month to help with some basic maintenance, litter picking or perhaps grass cutting?

About us

Weobley Parish Council is made up of ten local residents who are elected every four years and volunteer their time, their expertise and their services.

As the first tier of local government, we hope to encourage input from local residents which in turn will help us to develop and maintain local facilities and services.

How we work

The work undertaken by the Parish Council is financed through a precept, which is an amount of money collected as part of your Council Tax.

This money is used to help improve local facilities and services in and around the village and for larger projects, the council tries to secure funding through any grants and awards that made be available.

Do you have what it takes to be a Parish Councillor?

We're currently looking for two residents who would be interested to join the Parish Council. The position is voluntary (so you won't get paid) but you will help to make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect our local community, with probably the most common topics involving planning matters and roads & highways.

As a Parish Council we negotiate with, and have the power to influence those organisations that make decisions affecting our village including District and County councils, local health authorities, the Police and many other organisations.

If you would like to know more, please contact by e-mail the Clerk to the Parish Council at [email protected]

About our Village

Weobley, pronounced 'Webley', is one of the largest villages and civil parishes in Herefordshire, situated just eight miles away from Leominster and 12 miles north-west of Hereford. Our name Weobley comes from 'Wibba's Ley', with a 'ley' being a term for a woodland glade whilst 'Wibba' is the name of a local Saxon landowner, so in effect Weobley means 'Wibba's woodland clearing' and even features in the Domesday Book.

Our quiet and picturesque village sits in the very heart of the Herefordshire lowlands, an area characterised by wide river valleys, arable farming, low hedges, steep wooded hills, beautiful orchards and extensive hop yards.  Over the years the village has changed from being a medieval wool trading centre, through glove making and ale brewing to the friendly village that it is today. We even saw a visit from King Charles I, who stayed in the village following the battle of Naseby in 1645.
