Welcome to Weobley Village

Famed for its attractive timber-framed 'black & white' buildings, our village is considered to be one of the 20 most idyllic villages in Britain. Sitting at the very heart of Herefordshire's lowlands in an area characterised by wide river valleys, we are surrounded by arable farming, low hedges, steep wooded hills and beautiful orchards.

Omicron: What are the latest COVID rules?

The measures put in place under plan B in England will shortly be lifted, but please continue to follow safer behaviours to protect yourself and others:

  • Get vaccinated and get your booster dose
  • Wear a face covering in most indoor public places and on public transport
  • Let fresh air in if you meet indoors. Meeting outdoors is safer
  • Get tested and self-isolate if require
  • Staff and pupils in secondary schools and colleges are no longer required to wear a face covering in classrooms.

You can stop self-isolating at the start of day 6 if you get 2 negative rapid lateral flow test results on days 5 and 6 and do not have a temperature. Tests must be at least 24 hours apart. If either test is positive, wait 24 hours before testing again.

Our village has two Public Access Defibrillators which are located in the former phone box at the entrance to Castle Green off the village centre and at the Village Hall, both of which need to be checked weekly to make sure that the equipment is emergency ready. For the the past few years, Eric Godfrey has very kindly taken on this task, for which we are extremely grateful. Thank you again Eric. 

Village Defibrillator Monitors. Can you help?

However, he would now like to ‘retire’ from this important role, so we are desperatly in need of a new volunteer.

If you would be prepared to take over this key role for the village, do please get in contact via the Parish Clerk at clerk@weobleyparishcouncil.org.uk

Herefordshire's Talk Community

Herefordshire's Talk Community

Talk Community aims to make Herefordshire a better place to work and live by offering a wide range of activities, events, training courses, business support and much, much more through a network of Community Hubs.

These Community Hubs help to bring residents together, alongside offering up to date health and wellbeing information and to connect people to services, groups and activities, both nearby and elsewhere across Herefordshire and are run by staff and / or volunteers from the local community with support from Herefordshire Council.

Can you spare us a couple of hours each month?

It takes a huge amount of work to keep the Play Area and Skate Park in tip-top condition. Something that cannot be achieved without the help and support of an amazing team of volunteers - someone like you.

We desperately need your help. Can you spare a couple of hours each month to help with some basic maintenance, litter picking or perhaps grass cutting?

Give us a call on 01544 319143
