Ledbury supports Ukraine
Written by Ledbury Ukraine Aid

Ledbury Ukraine Aid was so overwhelmed with donations that they needed more space to store items ready to be transported to help Ukrainian refugees.
Update: Ledbury Town Council offered the Market House as a storage facility, but this will end on Saturday 16th April.
Note also that donations can no longer be accepted after that date at Pacific Dove.

After Easter, donations may still be left at the Halo Leisure Centre or the Library in the Masters House during their normal opening hours.
Alternatively, items may be taken to the Hereford depot at 37, Three Elms Trading Estate.
Hours there are 09:00 to 21:00 weekdays and 09:00 to 17:00 Saturday and Sunday.

The Market House was floodlit in the colours of the Ukrainian flag for a few evenings, but the lights were on loan and have now been removed.  Ledbury Town Council has obtained a Ukrainian flag, which is now on the flagpole by St. Katherines (see photo at the end of this article).

Organisers said: “A huge thank you to everyone who has helped, with donations, volunteering or even both!  It’s been wonderful to see all this generous Ledbury community spirit in action once again”.

Because of the horrific invasion of Ukraine, there's a lot of focus right now on Putin’s oligarchs and the cash they keep in the UK.  It’s called the ‘London laundromat’ for a reason, and our new film explains how it all works.  Buckle up and go on a tour of London with a difference.

Money-laundering expert Oliver Bullough is your guide.

Following two successful sessions in February and March in our new venue, The Repair Café is pleased to announce the next few dates:

  • Saturday 2nd April
  • Saturday 7th May
  • Saturday 4th June

Sessions are held in Ledbury Community Centre, Lawnside Road, generally on the first Saturday of the month between 10:00 and 12:30 - please check our website for details.

This larger venue not only allows us to accommodate more repairers and therefore carry out more repairs during the morning, but it also allows the 'Café' element to resume after being cut short in 2020 by the pandemic.  So clients can, once again, buy cakes and coffee, etc. while their items are being repaired.

Repairs can only be accepted by pre-booking via our website - repaircafeledbury.org.uk.

Woodleigh Road back to 2-way
Written by A. Cyclist   
Monday, 24 January 2022 22:32

Without warning or consultation, the New Street end of Woodleigh Road is back to 2-way.

According to a nearby resident, contractors turned up at 11pm last Wednesday (19th January - just a few hours after Boris had announced abandonment of ‘Plan B’) with 3 vehicles and floodlighting to burn off the markings installed in September 2020 as part of the Covid-19 Active Travel measures.  The left side of this very narrow section of Woodleigh Road had been delineated as a ‘footpath’ and the ‘Weak Bridge’ notice covered with a ‘No Entry’ sign, with an exception for cyclists (who shared the delineated area with pedestrians).  The white ‘Give Way’ triangle and other markings were repainted at the same time.

This curious arrangement, which had been in place for over 7 years, indicates the road is still one-way: otherwise the correct marking is for the triangle and double dashed line to be on the exit side, with a single dashed line at the entry and a solid line along the middle of the road, as shown (right - courtesy Wikipedia).  Clearly Herefordshire Council considers carrying out this retrograde step (where employees were obviously paid overtime) to be a much higher priority than fixing potholes...

Also gone is the town-wide 20mph speed limit.
