It should be noted that the maintenance of the Green is totally funded by voluntary contributions received from within the Community.

The Trustees are extremely grateful for the continued support for the Green from the residents of Kingsland and the surrounding area.

Mountains of Rubbish Collected by the Litter Pickers!

We had 30 volunteers over the two days and again borrowed very good equipment from Herefordshire Council.

Only three small sections of the parish were not covered and here is a typical report by a volunteer. ‘ We did not get back to the Hall until about 2.45 pm having got ten bags of assorted rubbish including hub caps, various other car parts, beer cans,  a sofa cushion, cycle parts and one trainer from both sides of the Mortimer’s  Cross Straight !’

Thanks to everyone

Missing Cat – please let us know if you see him….

We’ve re-located another cat from our previous home (the neighbours couldn’t feed him any more).He’s a feral cat, but was living in our garden for over 2 years with his mother (she was our previous cat that went missing. She’s settled in well here and we thought we would bring the other one along, too).

Unfortunately he’s disappeared . I’ve put his details on national lost pet registers. I think he’s probably moved off, but it’s worth a try. He might be appearing in someone’s garden in Kingsland.

He’s a very fluffy cat, long haired with a VERY BUSHY tail. Mainly white face and brown/white/grey coat. He’s very nervous of humans, so we’ve not got very good photos of him

If you see him please call Debbie on 01568 709226  or  07719 605347

Wheatfield, Kingsland HR6 9QT (main road)

Many thanks!

SMAAAK – Windborne at the Coronation Hall 5th May

WINDBORNE  5th May, Coronation Hall, Kingsland.

A superb four piece Folk band currently touring the USA, Windborne are appearing at the Coronation Hall on the 5th May, as part of their UK engagements. Follow their progress at www.windbornesingers.com

Internationally acclaimed folk band Windborne is a group of vocal chameleons who specialize in close harmony singing, shifting effortlessly between drastically different styles of traditional music within the same concert. Their musical knowledge spans many continents and cultures, but they remain deeply rooted in American folk singing traditions. Praised for “the purity of their voices, strength of their material, and attention to detail in their arrangements,” Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon share a vibrant energy onstage – their connection to each other and to the music clearly evident. They educate as they entertain, telling stories about the music and explaining the characteristics and stylistic elements of the traditions in which they sing.

Kingsland’s going to Pot

Following Alison Parker-Morgan’s letter in Kingsland News and on our Village Talk page about the North Road potholes, please take the time to write or email our Councillor Sebastian Bowen to give him some ammunition to get the road resurfaced.  You can also report potholes to Herefordshire Council by clicking here so please report others such as those between the Corners and Boarsfield, along Longford and from Shrublands to Cobnash, or anywhere else in the parish for that matter!
