Kingsland Tennis Courts – press release

A project to resurface the tennis courts in Kingsland is now complete. The village raised £30,900 with money from a number of different avenues including a fabulous £10,000 from the Big Lottery Fund and £16,816.00 from Hereford Council’s developer contributions. A donation of £2000 was gratefully received from Kingsland Parish Council, £250 was kindly given by Oaker Wood Leisure and a number of Kingsland residents generously helped us reach our target.

The courts are primarily for tennis but there are also basketball hoops either side of the court and a netball court marked at one end. Special thanks go to everyone who helped with this fantastic project and we hope that the courts are enjoyed for many years!

SMAAAK

The Friends of St.Michaels and All Angels Kingsland

Our Charity is a non religious organisation dedicated to raising funds for the repair and renewal  of the fabric of our 12th Century Parish Church, and at the same time bringing comedy, music, art and sculpture to Kingsland Village.

Forthcoming events:

September 7th to the 15th – h.Art

Over 20 artists, sculptors and craftspeople have already booked places in what is one of the most popular venues for Herefordshire’s Art week festival, our Parish Church.

Last year over 1,500 people came, viewed and often bought during the 8 days of h.Art. Entry is free.

Each year Thomas Bowes and Eleanor Alberga bring to Kingsland a superb classical music evening, with world class musicians.

The Festival commences at the Sun Inn Leintwardine on the 2nd October and arrives in Kingsland Parish Church on Thursday evening, the 3rd October. Tickets £15.

October 26th. The Village Quire.

The last time the Village Quire visited Kingsland everyone present asked us to bring them back as soon as possible, and here they are. Singing the Songs of Silas, from H.E. Bates story about a loveable rogue, a womaniser who had a cottage full of homemade wine, told tall tales, drank, poached, and worked hard to avoid the bath tub!! The Village Quire have a reputation for spine tingling harmony and love of life that you get when voices are raised together. Come and hear for yourselves.

Tickets £12.00 and £8.00

Venue, the Coronation Hall

December 14th The Churchfitters

Anyone that managed to get to the almost snowed off performance by the Churchfitters two years ago will recall what a riotous evening it was. Now returning, again by popular demand, the Churchfitters have composed a special Christmas version of their wonderful show which is bound to be first rate entertainment. The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments, including a stand up dustbin base and a bing bong machine made up of hacksaw blades!!!

Venue, the Coronation Hall.

Tickets are £15 and £10 to include mulled wine and mince pies.

The tennis courts have been resurfaced, colour coated and lined and are ready for use

What a Load of Rubbish! – Litter Pick News

PARISH LITTER PICK

Once again we had a great turn out of volunteers, 25 on Saturday 30th and 10 on Sunday 31st March. Fortunately it was a fine weekend which certainly made the job more ‘enjoyable!’  We covered all the roads and almost all the footpaths. Many people felt that the amount of rubbish wasn’t as great as in previous years but even so we amassed a huge pile in the Coronation Hall car park (see photo on website).

Well done and ‘thank you’ to everyone who took part. And ‘thank you’ to Cllr. Sebastian Bowen who provided the equipment and arranged for the spoils to be collected and disposed of. It is good to think that our footpaths, ditches and verges are free of cans, bottles and hub-caps etc. for a few days at least!
