Yarpole Community Field Consultation

The Parish Council would like to invite suggestions from the community to the Parish Council for their consideration for future use of the community field in Yarpole. A consultation form leaflet can be found here so please fill this out and return to the boxes in Yarpole village hall or the church, alternatively you can email the Clerk yarpolegroup@gmail.com. All responses need to be returned by the 31st December 2019.

The results of the consultation will be collated and discussed by Parish Council at their meeting in February 2020 , following which the working party will investigate costings/plans/feasibility based on the ideas that come forward. The plan is that the Parish Council can then present their initial vision for the field at the Parish Annual Meeting in May 2020.

Safer Neighbourhood team Update

A quick update from Leominster Safer neighbourhood team:

Operation ‘Stop that Sheep’ has been launched.

As part of West Mercia’s Rural Crime action day, Leominster, Kington and Bromyard Safer Neighbourhood teams all took part in Operation Stop that sheep. The aim of the operation was to stop livestock trailers, scrap dealers, vans etc and check their documentation for the loads that they were carrying. Working alongside Animal welfare officers and civil enforcement officers from Herefordshire Council the teams pulled over 30 vehicles in the space of two hours. The joint operation was successful and hopefully it helps reassure our rural communities that rural crime matters to us. Watch this space for the next instalment.

The next property marking event in Yarpole will be: 5th December, St Leonards, Yarpole  1200-1300
