However far-fetched an assertion might be, there is usually an element of truth in it.  For example, ‘Bonkers’ Boris’s ex-mate Dom’s latest diatribe centred on ‘Hopeless’ Prat Hancock....

Bozo defended his tardy decision to put India on the Red List in this BBC clip, despite that country having many times more cases of Covid per 100000 people than neighbouring Bangladesh and Pakistan, both of which were red-listed a fortnight earlier.

This video from Led By Donkeys paints a somewhat different picture:-

 
An April evening bike ride

If foreign holidays are out this year, leaving staycations as the only alternative, there are fewer places to beat Herefordshire.  An evening bike ride on a sunny April evening just to the west of Ledbury reveals how beautiful our county is.

Leave Ledbury via the Town Trail as far as Little Marcle Road, or via Bridge Street.  Cross the bypass at the bottom of Lower Road and carry on past UBL.  After about a mile, bear left and then right.

After about 2 miles out of town, you will find this interesting tree house (left).

After another mile or so, turn right on the A4172 and take the next left.  Carry on towards Putley.  Just before you get to Aylton, there is a sharp turn to the right:

Repair Café re-imagined: Update

To comply with Lockdown 3, the Repair Café has had to suspend activities again.  Hence sessions for January, February and March 2021 have, regrettably, been cancelled.  We do hope to be able to reopen as soon as possble.

The Ledbury public’s appetite for repair was clearly demonstrated by the success of our first two sessions in February and March 2020.  We are keen to develop the idea of Keeping Repair Alive in Ledbury without, of course, risking any spread of the Covid-19 virus amongst our volunteers, clients, or the public in general.

Our new way of operating this popular service last September was a drop off and collect repair service for portable household items of a mechanical, electrical or ceramic nature.  This proved very successful, so the same format will be maintained when we are able to reopen.  [Please note: All items will be sanitised before being worked on.  This means that we cannot accept any textile or fabric repairs, or any other item where application of sanitising products would cause damage.]

Our volunteer repairers will work at safely spaced-out tables inside the hall, with public drop-off and return desks located at the entrance from Church Lane (opposite the Prince of Wales pub) and from the ally beside Ledbury News on the High Street respectively.

All bookings made so far in 2021 have been held over until we can reopen.  Owing to the backlog, we regret we are unable to take more bookings for some time.  Further details and updates will be posted here.

Repair Cafés are local schemes that promote repair as an alternative to throwing things away.  The idea was born in Amsterdam in 2009, and there are now over 1500 Repair Cafés worldwide.

Repair Cafés do not charge a fee for repairs, but donations towards running costs are gratefully accepted into our cash quarantine box!

Ledbury Essential Business Directory during the Coronavirus emergency
Written by Administrator   
Friday, 27 March 2020 22:05

A list of businesses that are open in the Ledbury area was compiled by the Ledbury Civic Society week beginning 23rd March.  Since things are changing so rapidly during these extraordinary and very uncertain times, we suggest you contact the business to make sure they are still open before visiting.

Please email the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to tell us of any errors, changes, omissions or additions to this list.  We will try to keep the list as up to date as possible.  Please note: we are not making any charge to do this - however it may take a while for any notified changes to be made.  Please bear with us!

Don’t forget that if we don’t use these businesses they may very well close permanently, especially as Government help for the self-employed is unlikely to be available before June.

Above all - keep well and keep safe.

Wassail,
LPAdmin
