The seventh Ledbury Community Day was on Saturday 8th June, 2019.

Highlights that 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.
