Work Party 11 November
While we have cleared a path from the cottage up to the bench at the top of Yatton Hill, the time for further path clearing will be in the Spring. However, the Aymestrey Parish Commons Association (‘APCA’) never sleeps, and we are arranging a work party at Yatton Marsh (the east end) next Saturday 12th November.
The time will be from 9.30, finishing no later than 12. The aim is to clear some unwanted undergrowth of brambles, bindweed and ground elder for the benefit of wildlife and other flora. Any saws and hedge trimmer will be on site, please bring loppers and secateurs. Gloves are strongly advised and it might well be wet underfoot – the clue is in the name.
Asking for volunteers to help the enterprise. Please come if you are willing and able!
Information from the Safer Neighbourhood Team.
On Saturday 12th November 2022 between the hours of 1000-1300, Leominster safer neighbourhood team will be working in conjunction with Bennetts Vehicle services to offer this catalytic converter marking session. This will be by appointment only, due to the time needed for each vehicle.
The session will be held at Leominster Police station and will involve Bennetts Vehicle service getting underneath the car (the vehicle will likely need to go on ramps) and then using either a Smartwater marking kit or a Selecta security marking kit to mark the catalytic converter. This will take about 20 minutes in total.
Please note not all catalytic converters can be marked due to the design of the car. With this in mind we would ask that you check to see whether it necessary to mark your make and model of vehicle to prevent any wasted journeys. For example; some manufactures have already taken steps to protect catalytic converters by housing them inside secured boxes and so it is unnecessary to mark these catalytic converters.
There are limited spaces so if you would like to book a place, please contact Leominster Safer Neighbourhood team at firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will get back to you.

Draft Budget 2023-2024
At 7pm. on Wednesday 19th October at the Parish Hall
There will be a presentation by CarerLinks, a not-for-profit registered charity providing care at home and support services for carers and people with care needs.
This organisation is dedicated to providing support to those in our communities who need care and to the carers, many of whom are unrecognised let alone supported. The presentation will be short – perhaps 15 minutes – followed by questions.
Search ‘CarerLinks Herefordshire’ for more background information. Even if you are not a carer yourself, you are likely to know someone who is and what you pick up at the presentation may be helpful to them.
We now have four defibrillators in the Parish and plans for more. While they are said to be easy to use, if you have an emergency and might be in a position to save a life it is unlikely that you
will be able to spare the time to read the instructions. Would it not be much better if you were familiar with the operation of the defibrillator before the need to use one?
That is the opportunity. Paramedics will be at the Parish Hall to show us all how to use the machines and to familiarise ourselves with their operation. Without being over dramatic, your attendance may save a life.
