CANCELLED – Mortimer Parish VE Day Celebrations

Due to the threat of the on-going Covid-19 crisis it has been decided that the VE Day celebration event to be held in Wigmore Village Hall over the weekend of 8th-10th May must be cancelled.

Most forecasts by HMG, the Medical and Science leaders indicate that we will still be dealing with major issues for months. That being the case, we cannot proceed with the significant amount of planning required for the proposed event. If there are any positive changes in HMG recommendations then we can have a look at what we have and see what may be possible but for the moment please assume no event will be held.


CANCELLED – Wigmore and District Gardening Club Speaker

Due to the threat of Covid-19 the talk by guest speaker Ros Bissell from Moors Meadows Garden due to be held at Wigmore Village Hall this Thursday March 19th @7:30pm has been cancelled.

Apologies for the late notice but these are extraordinary circumstances.


Exhibition – Herefordshire Life Through a Lens

9th April to 18th April – Herefordshire Life Through a Lens – Photographs from the Derek Evans Studio Archive 1940’s – 1970’s

The PHOTOS is the culmination of the three-year Herefordshire Life Through a Lens project, and this multi-venue exhibition of photographs represents the first major retrospective of the Derek Evans Studio collection ever to be held. Many of the images have never been seen outside Derek’s dark room, or been exhibited for over 50 years. Catcher Media now brings a ‘bite size’ exhibition to both Leominster and Kington Libraries.

Enjoy a rare chance to get up close and personal with these fantastic photographs.
