Roll up, Roll up for all the fun of the Weobley Village Fete! 2pm on the Castle Green. See you there!
At 2pm on June 16th the much valued and respected husband and wife doctors Oliver and Rachel Penney will open the Weobley Village Fete.
Having been practising in Weobley for 27 years they have built on the wonderful reputation the surgery had for excellence and ‘going the extra mile’. The Weobley surgery under their watch is recognised as being one of the best in the county.
Oliver and Rachel will be greatly missed in Weobley but are going to Uganda where their care and experience will be hugely beneficial and very much appreciated.
Everyone is very welcome to come along and enjoy a moment or two at St Mary’s where you can view floral decoration and sample delicious homemade cakes, while catching up with ‘old friends’. And while you’re there, you can discover something new about the church of St Mary, the parish of Sarnesfield, with vintage agricultural and memorial displays both in and outside the church.
Two dozen Weobley, Staunton, Byford and Norton Canon people engaged enthusiastically with word games and other group activities designed to raise awareness of what dementia is, in Weobley’s Hopelands Hall on Saturday, May 12.
The Dementia Friends event, which followed a format devised by Alzheimer’s Society, mixed up people from the different villages with two rounds of discussion to brainstorm simple community actions that would make a difference. Voting with coloured dots revealed that awareness-raising, by promoting discussion, using social media and taking school assemblies, was the top desire. Other high-ranking suggestions included clearer signage in public places, a Dementia Friends Club for mutual support of carers and family members, and dementia friendly churches.
All Letton residents are welcome and entitled to attend Letton Parochial Church Council Meeting and AGM on Monday, 30th April at 6.30pm at Letton Church.
The meeting is an occasion to consider not only the past year, but also how best to organise our local church in a way that maintains its future and maximises benefit to the local community. Hope you can come.
