And news of things Old and NEW …

Kempley Farmers Market has been run by a dedicated team for the past 10 years, but they have decided time is creeping on and they are now calling it a day.  Not all is lost however as the Market has been offered a new home at Hellens Manor, Much Marcle.  The trial run for what is hoped will become a monthly market will be held at Hellens on Saturday 3rd July – a date for your diary!  Many thanks to all those who have made this award winning market such a success.

“Shop Safe Shop Ledbury”… All our “non-essential” shops in Ledbury will be open again from 12th April.  Please support them to help make up for a missing 3 months and bring the buzz and vibrancy back to the High Street – keeping a safe distance from others of course.

Maybe one day we’ll be able to do this again!

Good old days
