The next Ledbury Community Day will be on Saturday 6th June 2020.
We are now working on the details of our eighth Ledbury Community Day. If you have suggestions, or would like to help in the organisation of this event, please get in contact by email – email@example.com.
We will be contacting all groups for whom we have details later in the year with an update on developments. Participation forms will be available early in 2020.
In the meantime, please make a note of the date for your diaries!
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,
- 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 once again 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 to help your own welfare.
Herefordshire Healthwatch and our local surgery patients’ groups were pleased to learn your views on health services. 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 told 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 included the Master’s House for a blacksmith demonstration and a book sale, and details of Ledbury Poetry Festival.
