A Herefordshire village are to receive funding from the PCC to help them tackle the issue of speeding. Lyonshall Parish Council highlighted their concerns about speeding through their village in a recent online engagement event hosted by Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion and, after speaking with him directly, the council applied to his dedicated road safety fund.

Herefordshire Lieutenancy have reported that today marks the retirement of The Dowager Countess of Darnley from office after 12 years of representing Her Majesty The Queen as the Lord-Lieutenant of Herefordshire. Due to the pandemic the planned farewell service was unable to take place so joined by immediate family and the Deputy Lieutenants that have served under Lady Darnley’s leadership, a small private farewell service took place at Hereford Cathedral. Lady Darnley became Lord-Lieutenant on 24th October 2008 and during office has been pivotal in understanding the needs of the county residents, businesses and voluntary organisations. Her dedication and support to the county and most importantly the people who live and work in Herefordshire has been second to none. On behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, Lady Darnley has presented over 25 British Empire Medals, 16 Queen’s Awards for Voluntary Service and 7 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. She has ensured a strong relationship with the local military and cadets and has welcomed 38 Royal Visits, one of which was to welcome The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh to Hereford as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tour in 2012. I’m sure you will all join us in thanking Lady Darnley for her dedication and service to the county and wish her a wonderful and well deserved retirement.
