The seventh Ledbury Community Day was on Saturday 8th June, 2019.
It was a great time to discover what groups and organisations serving Ledbury and District do, how they can help you and how you can help them in all kinds of ways.
Highlights this year included meeting our Army Cadets, trying your hand at Bowls at the Bowling Club and the Community Centre, riding on a Fire Engine (popular last year!), exploring the magic of bell-ringing under the Market House, trying out fitness equipment courtesy of Halo, finding out about Ledbury Scouts’ 100th Anniversary and the Maritime Cadets’ replica field gun.
Our Community Brass Band brought joy to the High Street and our U3A Recorder Consort brought delight to St Michael’s Church. Stars Theatre Arts put on a dance and gymnastics show at the Community Centre.
The Community Centre, St Katherine’s Hall and the Burgage Hall were full of groups offering sports, education, environmental and leisure activities, ways to volunteer in the community, and ways to help your own welfare.
Herefordshire Healthwatch and our local surgery patients’ groups were pleased to learn your views on health services, and our local neighbourhood policing team joined with Fire Station Open Day.
Rotary brought an Iron Lung exhibition to Ledbury to demonstrate their work in fighting polio in the world, and the Refugee Support Group will tell of their successes in spreading help from Ledbury to those in most need.
Councillors were at the Burgage Hall and members of our Youth Council at St Katherine’s Hall.
Visits to our heritage buildings including the Master’s House for a blacksmith demonstration and a book sale, and details of Ledbury Poetry Festival.
