Plans for the Hereford Transport Package – the Hereford Bypass and associated walking, cycling, bus and public realm improvements will be exhibited on the 6, 7 and 8 of February 2018.

Wye Valley NHS Trust is holding an open day on Friday, February 2, from 11am to 2pm at the County Hospital, Hereford. The invitation has gone out to qualified nurses who have left the profession and are considering a return, student nurses and those who have thought about nursing as a career, to attend the session.
Here is the latest wildlife update for the parish, the December issue of Lyonshall Country Diary.
In the documents you will also find an Appendix giving a brief summary of “The Curl Brook Project’s” findings [2015-17] on the fish and invertebrates living in our local stream and its myriad tributaries. It makes very interesting reading for those of you who enjoy fishing and country pursuits - and it may be an eye-opener for all of us as to the extent of our little brook’s reach and importance, from its sources from within Lyonshall Parish, to the open sea and The Atlantic Ocean beyond.
