In response to recent changes to the Government’s COVID-19 advice, play areas owned by Leominster Town Council at the Grange, Sydonia and Ginhall Green will be open for use from Saturday 4th July. When using the play areas, please make sure that you follow the advice provided on Town Council signage and maintain social distancing at all times. All other play areas in Leominster are owned by Herefordshire Council – enquiries can be directed to the Herefordshire Council Customer Service team on 01432 260000.
Verges and Green Spaces
The Town Council maintains verges and open spaces throughout Leominster, under licence from Herefordshire Council. Maintenance of these spaces during the summer months (April-October) includes: litter picking, mowing the grass, strimming verge edges, and blowing debris off footways and carriage ways. During the winter months, when mowing is no longer required, our operatives focus on trimming hedges and removing debris from trees.
The Town Council are grateful for a grant of £10,000 from Herefordshire Council's Public Green Spaces Community Grant Scheme, which has helped to fund the equipment required to maintain Leominster's verges and green spaces.
Public Right of Way Maintenance
The Town Council has a small budget, to strim and clear footpaths in order to maintain access and to replace the infrastructure. For example, replace gates, install kissing gates, repair stiles and finger posts. We have an active volunteer footpath group that feed back any issues through the Parish Footpath Officer, but as we have 105.7km of Public Rights of Way in the Parish, we would welcome reports from walkers on overgrown paths, obstructions, defective equipment etc. Please report on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01568 611734.
