  1. Hi Just to let you know there is a table top sale taking place at Belmont Community Centre on Sunday 4th December 2016 from 1.30 pm. Sellers should reserve tables in advance with a full payment of £5 and arrive at 1 pm. Come along and maybe grab yourself a bargain.
  2. Thanks Mick, we always try and put on events that would appeal to a variety of people. We have some more events coming up in December too. A Christmas concert on Sunday 18th December at 7 pm, admission is free and ticket only. There will be refreshments and a raffle. This has been kindly supported by Tesco at Belmont, Belmont Rural Parish Council and South Wye Community Association. We also have Santa's Grotto on Saturday 10 December from 10 am to 3 pm, again free entry. It was very successful last year and we are hoping for it to be bigger and better this year. This event has been

  4. Good Morning I am also a Trustee of South Wye Community Centre as well as the County Councillor for Belmont Rural. I believe all of the Trustees and Volunteers are committed to obtaining funds to keep the library open. We are planning to approach Belmont Rural Parish Council and Hereford City council for grants, which we hope will be granted to cover the next three years rental costs. This would mean that we can work on our plans to develop the Centre into a centre of Well Being and it will also give local residents peace of mind that the library will be open for at least another thr
  5. Good Morning Just a reminder that The South Wye Transport Package, travel improvements consultation is being previewed at the Three Counties Hotel today between 10 am and 8 pm. Council and BBLP staff will be available to answer questions, you will be able to see the proposals and view a short video, highlighting possible changes. You will also be asked to complete a questionnaire on the proposals. It is certainly worth a look and getting your views put across.
  6. Morning Just a reminder that the Harvest Festival takes place on Saturday 17th September 2016 from 2 pm to 4 pm at Belmont Community Centre. There will be songs, nibbles and good company! In the spirit of Community we are not charging for this event but would ask people to "donate" items we can then distribute to the needy in our area. Booking is essential so please reserve your place on 01432 263415 We hope to see you there.
  7. Hi Alex and Colin Thanks for the feedback, I will log the issue with trees on Abbotsmead and Colin, I hope to have agreed some work on the field, but will let you know once confirmed. Have a good day both. Thanks Tracy
  8. hi Thank you for the quick response. I have already raised issues about the brooks with BBLP and they have done some cutting back at the brook by the Three Counties Hotel but I believe there is more needed and I am meeting them again to discuss. I believe it is a health and safety issue as people do not realise under all of that grass is actually a brook and children could get hurt. I have already raised the issue with the trolley and other debris and there has been a ticket raised to clear that. I even emailed them a photograph of the trolley so there was no confusion. I chased agai
  9. Hi The Parish Council will be holding a Community Action Day in Belmont on Saturday 15th October 2016 from 10.30 am. The aim is to get as many volunteers as possible to try and help with jobs around the parish, including Jubilee Field and public paths. There was a similar event earlier in the year and I ended up spending a considerable amount of time helping to clear a large area of brook with another volunteer!! I am sure the Parish Council will be putting up posters with more detail in the near future, but I wanted to give people advance warning, to save the date :) I think it i
  10. Thank you. It was a very valuable experience and it just goes to show what can be achieved when working as part of a team. One of the door staff explained that Hereford has a lot to be proud of, it has completely changed over the last few years and all for the better. It was certainly enlightening seeing how Licensees, door staff, Police Officers and street pastors interact. I was completely unaware of the great work carried out by Street Pastors, who are all volunteers and do a fantastic job of trying to help vulnerable people to ensure that they are looked after and safe. I saw how
  11. Good Morning All I am really pleased that the field has finally been cut as I have raised the issue with several different people and departments over recent months! As much as I would like to think it was cut on the back of my requests, I am currently unable to establish how it happened since there is no contract currently in place to cover that piece of land. So as much as I would love to claim the credit, I will just say I am very happy to see it has been done. Going forward I am hoping the Parish Council will be able to add the cutting of this field to the list of jobs to be c
  12. Thank you Colin. Also we have a slight change of plan for the Olympic Events. The date has now changed from the 20th to the 27th. Apologies to everyone for any confusion. It would be great to see as many people as possible attend and make it a real "community event".
  13. Hi As Ward councillor I have attended every meeting since I was elected and I have pointed out to the Parish Council that there are people asking questions about the precept money and how it is going to be spent. As I am not a Parish Councillor I am not privy to all of the information but when I attend the meetings as a member of the public, I have on several occasions, including the meeting on Thursday, suggested that more things are done around the whole of the ward. To be fair the Parish did hold a community day for Jubilee Field a few months ago and I along with several of the
  14. Hi Everyone, I wanted to let you all know about events which we have planned during the next few months at Belmont Community Centre. If you are interested in attending any of the events please give the Centre a call on 01432 263415. There is a small charge for the events and more details can be found on the attached posters.

  16. Colin, you are in Belmont Rural Ward. As Glenda stated it isn't party of the City Council but is a ward in its own right. Belmont Rural Parish Council is the Parish Council responsible for our area and I am the ward County Councillor, for Belmont Rural. Hope that helps.

BBC Hereford and Worcester also came during the celebrations and interviewed several people, you can hear our Chairman Lyndsey Evans on the Radio, if you go to the Queen's Birthday show approx 1 hour 29 mins into the programme. I am sure I spoke to everyone there and the feedback was fantastic, they were asking what are our plans for another event. So we ar
  18. Hi I reported it to BBLP and hopefully they are now on the case to get it removed. Tracy
  19. Ipusseycat, you are correct that the Community Association was recently given £500 after winning a community award. This money will be used to improve the rear garden of the Centre, paving the area, purchasing seating etc so that users can sit outside in the sun and chat, read books an generally enjoy the facility. As I am sure you can appreciate although we are a charity we also have overheads, heating, lighting, water and have a duty to keep the Centre in good repair. We have recently purchased new flooring in the toilets and foyer area and have undertaken to repaint a number of rooms

There were five categories including Apprentice of the Year, Youth Champion, Volunteer of the Year, Greatest Achievement and the Liz Connors Community Award. I spoke to several of the finalists at the event and was humbled b

  23. No, all Councillors were contacted by a member of the Country Park Supporters Group and were advised of the date and time of the event. I am sure it will be advertised locally.
