This year’s Poets’ Path Potter marathon will be held on Saturday 23rd March starting at 9.00am.  With supporting 8, 10 and 16 mile options, the event is now open for entries.  This year we have more entries available (up to 150 in total) and we are planning to introduce chip timing for the first time.

The event HQ is the modern Dymock Cricket Club pavilion with changing rooms, showers and plenty of parking.  Entrants who have done it before know how friendly and informal this event is and how scenic and challenging the course, with masses of Daffodils and lots of history to be enjoyed.. ??

You can enter online at either:
 or at

An entry form with full event info and instructions (which you should read once entered) is also available for download at:

Hope to see you on the 23rd.

Music Session's Silver Jubilee

Ledbury's Prince of Wales music session will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on Wednesday 13th March.  This acoustic session takes place every Wednesday evening, consisting mainly of folk and blues songs and music, but anything goes (including at various times over the last quarter century - Italian tenors, Scottish bagpipes, didgeridoos, and Abyssinian belly dancing...)

The first in this long line was on St. Patrick's Day, Thursday 17th March 1994.  They were originally held monthly but became so popular it was decided early on they should be held weekly, and Wednesday proved to be a more convenient evening.

Sessions begin around 9pm and are open to anyone who has a song, tune or poem to contribute.  They enjoy a relaxed atmosphere - aided by some of the Prince's excellent ales and cider.  The pub provides food for performers on the last Wednesday of the month.

Although one or two nearby sessions have been going for longer, this is probably unique in being held continuously at the same venue for so long - the Prince session probably deserves to be registered as a community asset!

Whether you come to sing, play or listen, this promises to be a memorable evening.

Rhea Lane is still open to cyclists

Rhea Lane remains a through route for cyclists and pedestrians while the 'Iron Bridge' is being replaced.

The contractor has clearly seen sense despite indications to the contrary from Herefordshire Council, having made provision for cyclists wanting to use the Bromyard road out of Ledbury without risking annihilation on the rat-run through Wellington Heath.  The only access for motorised vehicles to Rhea Lane is from the Hereford road end: this barrier just north of Storesbrook Farm does however have a gate..

Ed: The Portal has since had confirmation from Balfour Beatty, who are overseeing these works, that the intention is to allow free passage for cyclists and pedestrians only via this route.
