Update from The Organising Committee
As we move into 2021 we still have no clear indication of the Covid-19 situation beyond the next few weeks. However, the news on the vaccine front is promising and we are hoping for some degree of ‘normality’ by June 2021 and hope to celebrate “all that’s great in Ledbury and District” with a Ledbury Community Day.
Please keep safe.
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 last 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.
