Herefordshire Together: Community Paradigm Showcase

On Thursday 16th May, Herefordshire Community Partnership will be hosting the Herefordshire Together: Community Paradigm Showcase. Held at Hereford Football Club, Edgar Street, the event will be a great opportunity for members of the voluntary and community sector to find out about the progress Herefordshire has made developing the community paradigm approach (and what the plans are for the coming 12 months), and hear from the organisations who were successful in their Herefordshire Together funding bids.

Put a spring in your step and enjoy the magic of walking this May

National walking month celebrates the many benefits of walking and wheeling.   As we move into May, we welcome lighter evenings and hopefully some spring sunshine, making it the perfect time to get walking! Visit the Talk Community Directory to read more about National Walking Month and to explore some of the walking groups/events in Herefordshire.

Peer support for men in Leominster (get the kettle on)  

A new friendly peer support group has been launched for men of all ages in Leominster. Relate Now meet monthly, bringing together like-minded individuals who may be feeling lonely and struggling with low mood. The group meet at The Rankin in Corn Square on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, offering a safe space for people to come together, to talk or play board games (there’s something to do even if you don’t feel like chatting).

Protect yourself and others from whooping cough

Whooping cough cases are on the rise both nationally and locally. Whooping cough is a bacterial infection which affects the lungs and is highly infectious. All pregnant women and parents with young children are being urged to check their vaccination status and to contact their midwife, or GP practice if they need to catch up.

Herefordshire Waste and Recycling Webinar Change of Date

Unfortunately, we’ve had to reschedule the webinar. It will now take place on 25th June, 12:45 – 14:00. We are sorry for any inconvenience and hope you can still make the new date. If you’ve already signed up, you don’t need to do anything, your spot is secured.

The webinar will provide an opportunity to hear about Herefordshire Council’s ambitious new waste service, learn how plans to expand the service will provide improved recycling opportunities helping us to minimise waste and increase reuse, repair and recycling.
