Lingen, a place of sparkling water, is a Herefordshire village in the wooded hills of the Marches on the border between England and Wales. Situated in the north-west corner of the county it lies just over five miles from the Welsh border. The parish includes the hamlets of Birtley, Limebrook and Willey. 

Lingen village offers not only a Chapel, Church, Public House and Village Hall, but also gives visitors the opportunity to sample stunning countryside walks with truly splendid views.

Proceeds from the fete will be shared equally between St. Michael's Hospice (reg. charity no.1002856), Lingen Church & Lingen Village Hall (reg. charity no.219377).

Fete Message from Robert, Lingen Churchwarden - A very big Thank You to everyone involved at, before, and after the fete.  The sun came out, the electrics survived, the crowds seemed very happy though we had room for more, and next time, with really good weather before as well as during, the much-missed bouncy castle will surely be back! 

Treasurer Tim has done his stuff, and the outcome is a figure of £1,119 to be shared by the Church, the Village Hall, & St Michael's Hospice, this year's outside charity - this is not far off last year's figure, and a good result by any standards for a village the size of ours.  Robert Nisbet. 29.6.15


Some Humorous Fun from 'Our Maggie' which is quite poignant given the present European climate!
