Ledbury Walkers' Club

After the enforced closure due to covid restrictions, the Club is once again up and running with a friendly and enthusiastic membership.  The club is now in its 27th year of operation and has around 80 members from Ledbury, Malvern, Ross-on-Wye and other parts of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.

We walk most Thursday mornings starting at 10:00am.  The walks are usually around 5 miles in length and generally start within a 15 mile radius of Ledbury town.  In the summer months we sometimes have short evening walks, and a few at weekends.  From time to time, walks start from a pub in the area that will provide food, drink and relaxation after the walk is over.  Occasionally, we have 8-11 mile 'all day' walks at venues further afield, where participants bring along their own picnic lunch. These walks are usually planned for a Saturday.

Hello friends,

126 fines for 83 people - including the Prime Minister.  That’s the level of criminality Boris Johnson oversaw when he and his staff broke the laws they asked the rest of us to follow.

And yet most of his MPs don't care.

Last night we projected this film on to Parliament to remind us all why this cannot be normalised.  Thanks as ever to Gavin Esler for the voice-over.

More soon,

Белгравия, Лондонград

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.

Woodleigh Road back to 2-way

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.
