Remember Captain John Coke Mcmurdo

(published by: Parish Council)

22/04/2015

As you know The Parish Council has arranged remembrance for those soldiers from Lyonshall who lost their lives in WWI. The church bells will toll at 6.00pm on the anniversary of the day they died and toll for the age of each solider at time of their death.

Our first fallen hero is Captain John Coke McMurdo who died on 25th April 1915 aged 30.

Over the next few days until Monday, you can visit the church where you will find a tribute of memorial crosses in the Memorial Garden and a resume of his life and connection to Lyonshall and The Church on the table inside the South door. (From Lyonshall research)

For more details look under the Lyonshall commemorative project which can be found Parish History on this site.

Please take the time to listen for the bells and remember.

Now spring is here the grass really has started growing.

The mower will have its annual service Monday and the playground grass is quite long and ready for cutting.

Can you spare a few hours a month? Would you like to join the team?

There are several items we need your help with: please share any bright ideas

Do you know how we can clear the mole infestation?

Can you spare a few hours to help paint and preserve the woodwork?

Do you have green fingers, could you help with general weeding?

Can you help find someone to mow the grass over the summer months?

Our playground is a great facility but we do need your help to look after it. We would like to see as many parents, friends and children on Thursday so please come along.

One Shared Ownership House

(published by: Parish Council)

25/03/2015

Seven of the houses at Fishpools have been occupied with a 100% satisfaction rating by the occupants. One shared ownership house remains to be filled and South Shropshire Housing Association has offered an incentive to tempt someone, preferably local, to move in. It is offering £1000 towards legal fees for any application leading to a reservation by the end of April. This will be paid at completion of a successful sale.

I know that several locals have expressed an interest and I also know that the process is complex. If you are interested then contact Maggie Davis at South Shropshire Housing 01588 676238 or the agent Cobb Amos, 01568 610310 (ref: 11501).

New Housing - Consultation Results - 15 Houses 13-2-15

(published by: Parish Council)

13/02/2015

Thank you to all of you who returned your voting forms and provided comments, which have been very useful to the Parish Council (PC) in formulating its comments and opinions on the current 3 full planning applications for a total of 15 houses. The PC’s formal response will be a direct reflection of the votes cast and the opinions collected.

Of the 516 consultation letters, which were hand-delivered to each elector in the parish, we received a total of 187 completed voting forms. This represents a ‘turnout’ figure of 36.2% which is generally accepted to be an excellent response rate for such exercises.

The first question concerned people’s vote for or against the current planning applications – and an overwhelming majority (74.3%) expressed their support for the proposals for 15 individually-designed and constructed houses.

The second question asked about the full project – an additional 30 such houses on top of the current planning applications. The answers to this question were much closer – with a small majority of 50.8% of votes cast in support.

The comments made on the returned forms were many and varied, and will inform not only the Parish Council’s response to the current applications but will also provide some useful considerations for the continuing development of the Neighbourhood Development Plan. It is clear that there is a strong feeling that we must aim to regenerate the parish – new blood, new money, improved infrastructure - and to reverse the decline in services and facilities that have been so noticeable. This feeling is not shared by all, but does represent a majority opinion.

The formal Parish Council’s response will be put together in the next few days, and will in time be published on the planning applications on Herefordshire Council’s website. It is also possible that one or more of the applications may have to go to Planning Committee, in which case a representative of the PC will speak in their favour based on the collected opinions and comments.

You should also consider making your own personal comments on the three separate applications on Herefordshire Council’s website – link shown below – and the application numbers are 143830, 143831 & 143832.
