High Street Heritage Action Zone Fund
Leominster Town Council, in partnership with Herefordshire Council, are preparing an expression of interest to the High Street Heritage Action Zone Fund. The objective of the Fund is to renew and reshape town centres and high streets with a particular emphasis on heritage assets and in a way that improves experience, drives growth, and ensures future sustainability. If you represent a local business, attraction or community group, then we would be grateful if you would be willing to provide us with a letter of support.
You can use the link below to download a template letter, which sets out some suggested text describing your support for the council’s submission. We would request that you review this letter, make any appropriate changes, and then return a signed copy to be included with the expression of interest.
Please return your letter of support by Wednesday 10th July to Rachel Jones at Herefordshire Council, Plough Lane, Hereford, HR4 0LE or via Rachel.Jones@herefordshire.gov.uk.

Servants’ Quarters Holiday Accommodation
Leominster Town Council has opened its newly refurbished holiday apartment. Originally the servants’ quarters of an impressive historic house set in the town centre at number 11, Corn Square, the two storey apartment is now available, as a self-catering unit, to book through the Tourist Information Centre.
Expertly restored to its former Edwardian glory, complete with servants’ bells and a fully equipped retro kitchen, the apartment sleeps four in genuine Edwardian brass beds. Furniture and fittings were extensively supplied from the many well-known antique shops of Leominster that often feature on television programmes such as ‘Bargain Hunt’ and ‘Antiques Road Trip’.
Although integral to the Town Council offices and Tourist Information Centre, the apartment has its own front door on to the Square, right in the heart of the town centre. A five-minute walk from the train station, and even closer to the bus station, the accommodation would suit a small family, as well as walkers and heritage enthusiasts.
Recent visitors commented that the Servants Quarters felt ‘Just like my Grandmother’s home, it was wonderful, like going back in time. The attention to detail is truly inspired.’
To view or book the apartment call in to the Tourist Information Centre or call on 01568 616460. Prices start from £80 per night.
Environmental Update - 12th June 2019
Over the last month the Environmental Team have been tackling the mowing and maintenance of Leominster’s green spaces and verges. Plenty of sunshine and rain made May and June ideal growing conditions for grass, requiring more frequent mowing. Unfortunately, a combination of equipment problems and staffing changes have made it difficult for our team to cover all grassed areas as regularly as we would like. We are working hard to resolve these issues and look forward to being back on schedule in the near future. In the meantime, please continue to let staff at the Town Council Offices know if you have any concerns or questions regarding the on-going mowing and maintenance work.
Our Environmental Team have also been hard at work assisting the Leominster in Bloom volunteers with their preparations for this year’s judging on Friday 5th July. You’ll see the team watering flower containers, hanging baskets around the town, and helping to develop new shrub borders in Central car park area.
Please see the notice of vacancy below:
Police 101 Reporting
It is really important that local residents report any suspicious incidents, thefts or any anti-social behaviour that they see so that they can be logged officially on the police systems. It may be that it is not necessary to deploy an officer to the incident, but it will still be recorded so that all local officers are aware. The incident may seem minor to you, but it may be part of a bigger picture of raised concerns for a specific area that we are already dealing with.
The correct number to contact us on is:
999 for life threatening/changing incidents, 101 for all other police, non-emergencies. The safer neighbourhood teams email addresses and mobile phone numbers should only be used for local police enquiries and not to report incidents
