After years of planning and months of construction, Weobley's new skate park will soon be 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, but everyone young or old is welcome to try out their skating skills and enjoy the new park.

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.

ROAD CLOSURE : B4230 from Mill Bank to Garnstone Castle Road, Weobley, will be closed on Friday 16th April, 2021 for 1 day, between 09.30 – 15.30, on behalf of Openreach for new BT cable works, Resident access only.

Upgrades to improve and expand existing CCTV facilities around the village are currently being reviewed in co-operaton with the Police and other interested parties.

We're putting together the next edition of the Parish Council Newsletter, complete with refreshing new look, which we hope will be ready to publish shortly. 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 pick-up a copy from many of the Village shops.

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.

.... well now might be the right time as we are currently recruiting. By becoming 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. Go along to a parish council meeting, speak to one of the members and find out what they think of the job or contact the Clerk to the Parish Council by e-mail on  [email protected]

Anti-social behaviour and vandalism in the village, like in so many places at the moment, 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.
