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.

Could you be a Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator?

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 looking for a neighbourhood watch co-ordinator for the village who would:

  • be comfortable to talk to local residents about supporting the scheme and encourage them to join
  • keep in contact with the police – telling them about any suspicious and criminal incidents
  • be the first point of contact for local residents and the wider community if they need to get or give information
  • help maintain the scheme – handing out leaflets and newsletters, property marking and putting up neighbourhood watch signs

If this is you…. Why not get in touch. To find out more, please contact us by email at [email protected]

Knife Angel to visit Hereford

The Knife Angel is coming to the West End of Hereford Cathedral from 14 June to 12 July.

The sculpture is 27ft tall, it weighs 3.5 ton and is made out of 100,000 confiscated knives received from 43 Police Forces across the UK, originated from The British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry and took sculptor Alfie Bradley over two years to construct.

It has recently been on tour round the UK and become a national monument against violence and aggression in all its forms. Not only does the Angel act as a catalyst for turning the tide on violent and aggressive behaviour, but it is also acts as a beautiful memorial designed to celebrate those lives who have been lost through these violent and thoughtless actions.

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. The name Weobley comes from 'Wibba's Ley', a ley being a woodland glade and Wibba being a local Saxon landowner, so 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.

MAGPIE Weobley's "What's-On Magazine"

Launched almost 50 years ago in 1972, "The Magpie" is the village's monthly magazine keeping both residents and visitors up to date with what's happening in Weobley. Copies of the magazine are available from a number of the village shops or alternatively, call 01544 319322 to arrange to receive a copy by post.
