The river has receded from the field this morning but this is what it was like late yesterday afternoon from the Lugg Green bridge!
Flooding continues and the latest info is that rivers will keep rising until this evening. Advice is to not travel unless an emergency. Check out our Rivers and Flooding page here for river levels and flood alerts.
KINGSLAND PROGRESSIVE SUPPER
SATURDAY, 16 MAY, 2020
The Kingsland Millennium Green Trust are hosting a Progressive Supper in the Village on Saturday, 16 May, 2020. In previous years these events have been a roaring success with many of the new comers to the village participating. It is a lovely opportunity to take an evening stroll around the village and have a starter, mains or dessert course at three difference private houses where you will be made very welcome. At each venue you will be offered a drink and can make a contribution towards a further drink if you so wish. It is a really fun evening with the village bustling with people off to meet new friends and catch up with those they already know.
We congregate at the Village Hall at 6.30 where you will have a complimentary glass of Pimm’s and be able to buy a draw ticket if you should so wish. Here you will pick your three venues from a hat and obtain details of where your hosts live. There will be a map of the village, detailing all the houses hosting the courses, on display so you will know where to go! You leave the Hall just after 7 (in your “starters” group) for your first course, walking to your venue which takes place between 7.15 – 8.00pm. You then travel on foot and from 8.00 – 9.30pm will be served your “mains” course at your allotted venue. Finally, you set off again and from 9.30 – 10.30pm you will have your “dessert” course at your final host’s home.
We already have people who have offered to provide various courses; however, we could do with further volunteers. If you are willing to host a course for six other guests, we would love to hear from you. If you, and one other (be it your other half or a friend) provide one of the courses you will get your tickets at a reduced price to enable you to cover your catering costs. In total, you will be providing a course for 8 people on the night, including yourself and your co-host. We would love to hear from you as soon as possible if you are willing to do this.
The cost of the tickets are £25.00 per person (less for those who host). You can, of course, be what we call a “traveller only” which means you pay the full price of the ticket and merely dine on the evening. Please let us know when you contact us whether you have any special dietary needs or allergies.
All proceeds raised will be for the upkeep of The Millennium Green and will be Kingsland Millennium Green Trusts’ “Big Fundraiser” this year. As you probably know, The Green is an integral part of the village and its upkeep and maintenance is raised by such Charity events along with our 100 Club.
You will all be most welcome to come to his fun evening and would ask you to contact either Helen Flook (709070) or Sally Wall (708982) who look forward to hearing from you.

A planning application has been submitted for 10 new open market houses at the end of Boarsfield, running up Lugg Green Road to the main entrance of Day House Farm.
Details of the application where comments can be made are on the Herefordshire Council Planning Application page which you can find by clicking here.
We have had info from two separate sources that the road is being repaired by Balfour Beatty next Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th and will reopen sometime on Wednesday.
The Parish Council has been informed by Councillor Sebastian Bowen that this is happening and info is on our website’s Parish Council News page.
We shall see!!
If anyone gets further info please let us know so we can pass it on.
Kingsland Millennium Green Trust (KMGT)
There is an open meeting of the Trustees of KMGT in the Coronation Hall on Sat 22nd February at 10am. Please feel free to come along and if you would like coffee beforehand, that will be available from 9.30am.
Copies of the agenda can be obtained by emailing email@example.com or calling the telephone number below.
New Treasurer Required
Following the resignation of our current Honorary Treasurer, after sterling work over the last few years, KMGT is now looking for a new Honorary Treasurer. The role involves keeping the books and records of the registered charity, paying any bills when invoices are submitted and ensuring that funds received are accounted for. It is not an onerous task and will not take up a huge amount of time. In addition to keeping the books and records, a short report needs to be prepared for the meetings of the Trustees and interested parties (about 5 meetings per year) and ideally the Treasurer will be available to attend those meetings. A basic understanding of book-keeping is required in order that KMGT can fulfil its obligations to the Charity Commission.
Expressions of interest should be sent to the KMGT Chair – Sebastian Bowen on firstname.lastname@example.org or call his mobile 07831 636537. Alternatively emails can be sent to email@example.com and they will be passed on.
It should be noted that the maintenance of the Green is totally funded by voluntary contributions received from within the Community. No funding is received from either the Parish Council or Herefordshire Council in respect of ongoing maintenance. The Trustees are extremely grateful for the continued support for the Green from the residents of Kingsland and the surrounding area.
