Can You Help?

The Village Hall is one of the cornerstones of our happy community. Apart from cleaning and caretaking it is run by a committee of volunteers who give a little of their time to ensure its continued viability. At the moment two members are standing down and we are looking for people with some spare time to replace them.

 We need a treasurer who does not have to be financially qualified but is able to understand spreadsheets and keep an eye on the money. We also need a bookings secretary who is computer ‘savvy’ and has the wisdom to ensure any bookings are appropriate.

If you are interested in helping, please ring Colin Mills on 01544 319319, who will tell you more.

Speeding in the Village

Speed limits are set for a reason and exceeding them is illegal. The minimum penalty for speeding is £100 fine and three points added to your licence. Receiving 12 or more points within three years may disqualify you from driving. 

If you’re a newly qualified driver and receive six points during the first two years after passing your test, your licence will automatically be cancelled (revoked). To get it back you’ll need to apply and pay for a new provisional licence and pass both theory and practical tests again.

If you see Speeding in Weobley, report it.

As part of Operation Snap, members of the public can report and submit digital footage to West Mercia Police showing potential traffic offences via a secure online form.

This can range from driving dangerously or carelessly to overtaking on solid white lines, using a mobile phone while driving, ignoring traffic lights or dangerous driving around other road users, such as horse riders and cyclists.

Please note; issues with number plates, windscreens and minor traffic offences are unable to be dealt with via Op Snap and general parking complaints should be raised with the relevant local authority. Notification of untaxed vehicles can be reported directly to DVLA, reports of no MOT or no insurance should be logged to 101, not via the Op Snap portal.

Join us for a walk around Weobley

Most Saturday mornings there are organised walks along the extensive footpaths around the village and we have two groups - the first starting at 08.00am at the Wild Goose Chase for those with dogs (although if you don't have one, you're very welcome to join in) and the second starting at 09.00am at the Rose Garden for those who prefer to walk without dogs.

Everyone is very welcome whether you're a regular or just visiting the village.

The Museum is open every Monday 10.00am -13.00pm and Thursdays 2.00pm - 5.00pm. However our curators and volunteers are still available for research enquiries via e-mail at [email protected] should you need their help or assistance.
