Written by The Market Theatre   
Monday, 07 October 2019 18:25
Friday and Saturday 18th - 19th October at 8pm

in The Market Theatre
LADS presents
Much Ado About Shakespeare

If you recall your salad days, and your lost property has vanished into thin air, you are quoting Shakespeare.

If you won’t budge an inch, or have suffered from green-eyed jealousy; if you have played fast and loose, or been tongue-tied, hoodwinked or in a pickle, you are quoting Shakespeare.

If you have knitted your brows, made a virtue of necessity, insisted on fair play or slept not one wink, you are quoting Shakespeare.

Join LADS for an evening of fun, songs, parody and laughter at the expense of our greatest poet and playwright.

Tickets are FREE but must be booked in advance - pay what you feel on the door.
(also available from Info in Herefordshire in the Master's House, or phone 07967-517125).

Still no proper disabled access to Ledbury station
Written by Steve Glennie-Smith

Ledbury station will soon be the only station in the south-west Midlands (according to this recent written statement to Parliament dated 4th April 2019) that does not have step-free access to all its platforms.  The photo (right - courtesy Wikipædia), showing the only access to the Birmingham / London platform, was taken in 2008.  Nothing has changed since, except the bridge has been repainted!

We sent the following message to the North Herefordshire Tories via their website:

Dear Mr. Wiggin,

You might be aware that 73 railway stations are scheduled to receive funding to provide access for everyone to all platforms:

Ledbury station is not on this list, despite the eastbound platform falling foul of the Disability Discrimination Act ever since it became a legal requirement in 2004 for service providers to make 'reasonable adjustments' in relation to the physical features of their premises to overcome physical barriers to access.  It is not just disabled people who are disadvantaged: mothers with baby buggies, cyclists with heavy panniers and everyone with heavy luggage are also affected.  I note the last other station in this area without such access, namely Worcester Shrub Hill, has been included.

Why is Ledbury station not on the list?

Update: to which we received the following reply:

“Thank you for your correspondence regarding Ledbury station.

On 4 April the Department of Transport published the disappointing news that Ledbury Station has not qualified under this round of the Access for All scheme.
