Play Area Team

The Village Play Area is managed on behalf of the Parish Council by P.A.T.

If you would like to know more about the group or perhaps might be interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact Chris by email at xris.breen@gmail.com.

Weobley's Footpaths & Bridleways

With more than 50 footpaths criss-crossing Weobley, we have access to some of the most beautiful countryside to be found right on our doorstep. 

A team of volunteers help to maintain the network of paths, keeping stiles free from overgrowth, repairing stiles and bridges, along with hours (and hours) of strimming during early spring and throughout the summer months. We are always looking for extra help, so if you'd like to join our group to help with some of the general maintence please telephone Mike Ware on 01544 318296

Enjoy a Saturday Morning Walk with our Wardens

Most Saturday mornings there is an organised village walk led by our group of volunteer Footpath Wardens.  We start out from Wildgoose Chase (opposite the Gables Guesthouse on Broad Street) at 8.00 a.m. and walk for around one and a half to two hours.  Everyone is very welcome (and their dogs), so do come along.

Word on Weobley - Facebook

Word on Weobley is a local community facebook group to connect residents and fans of Weobley village. Here you can share news, exchange information, sell items and promote local services, pass on useful tips and help showcase Weobley life.

Weobley Parish Council

We have a very active Parish Council in Weobley with a meeting held each month at the Village Hall or via Zoom when restrictions apply (excluding August and December). Locals residents and businesses are welcome to observe these meetings and are given the opportunity to speak during the 'open session'.  

To find out more about how the Parish Council operates and its current activities, please visit the Weobley Parish Council Web site or e-mail clerk@weobleyparishcouncil.org.uk.

Herefordshire Mobile 'Report-It' App

A new Mobile App makes it easy to report issues to the Council about potholes, flytipping, dog mess and public rights of way affecting the village from your mobile phone.

Just take a picture, upload it to the app (which will automatically pinpoint your location if you are at the problem area) and it will be sent directly to the highways management team to action.

The app is available directly (and free) from the Herefordshire Council website, so there is no need to visit a third party app store. It always links to the most up to date version so it doesn't take up valuable space on your mobile, tablet or desktop. Just open the link and add it to your device's home screen.

Magpie, Weobley's community magazine

Nearly 50 years old, 'The Magpie' was launched in 1972 and is published monthly by a team of dedicated volunteers with the promise to keep residents and visitors informed about what's happening in and around Weobley. Many of our residents come to rely on the magazine to find people who can help with their gardening, cleaning, painting or to contacting a local business.

The magazine is available from a number of the village shops or by subscription, and for further information please telephone 01544 318322.

POLICE & Local Community Support

We have a very supportive Community Support Officer based at Kington Police Station and who can be contacted by dialing 101 ext 4535 or by e-mail on kw.snt@westmercia.pnn.police.uk and who also attends the monthly Parish Council meetings.

If you are witness to or have knowledge of any incidents in or around the Village, we would ask you to report these, either on 999 (for emergencies only) or 101 – or if you prefer to do this anonymously, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
