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.

Our thoughts are with Cllr. John Miles' family and friends after hearing of his sad death.  John served as a parish councillor for Adforton and as the Border Group parish council Chair for many years. 

Prudent advice for Christmas Shoppers-  It is only worth what you pay for it.  If they could sell it for more they would.

If you don't need it, don't buy it.   If you can't afford it - do without it.


Lingen Bridge Evening - raised over £700 for the 'Samaritans'.  Mary & David would like to thank everyone who helped and came to play on the night in aid of this very worthy cause.

Limebrook floods - the driving rains and high winds of Thursday evening (13th!) saw Limebrook burst its banks with some paths on the Lingen Loop Walk remaining impassable on Friday morning.  The deluge of rain water receded within an hour and left many areas sodden. 
h-Art Lingen Christmas Studio Shopping:  28th, 29th & 30th November 10am-6pm  The following studios will be open: Yen Robinson, Larry Wright & Paul Caton at the Old Schoolhouse Lingen for lighting, photography, wooden bowls & sculptures. Maggie & Kim Davis at Lingen Nursery for art works & wood turned bowls/vases.  Alison Macgregor Grimley & Garry Jones at Walford for art works & ceramics (closing 4pm).  See for venue info/directions and follow the pink signs!
Environment Matters - 29th November 11am at Assembly Rooms Presteigne.  Short film, discussion and talk on climate change and our economy - local rivers, streams & land use.  by Julian Jones from Water 21.  Admission FREE.
Annual General Meeting - Tuesday 2nd December 7.30pm Lingen Gardening Club in main hall.  All welcome.

Adforton Community Hall - The Adforton Lectures "Death where is thy Sting" Father David Stoter  Wednesday 3rd December at 7.30pm Admission £1.


Annual General Meeting - Lingen Village Hall (reg. charity no.219377).  At the hall AGM on Monday evening (10th Nov) Mary Pettitt, as wished, stood down as Chair and Trevor Pritchard was duly elected. All other hall officers kindly remained in place.

Sincere thanks go to Mary whom, even though suffering a close bereavement, managed to steer the hall in a most capable manner through two financially problematic years resulting in the hall almost breaking even at the end of the last financial year.  With major maintenance works also having been carried out along with the re-launch of the ‘100 Club’ it has to be said that she has given unstintingly of her time, talents and energies to ensure the hall has been left on a much better footing and thereby assuring its future in continuing to serve this community.  Mary will continue to support the hall by remaining as a trustee and committee member.

Thanks were also given at the meeting to both Sue and Stuart for their continuing support of the hall as honorary secretary and treasurer respectively. Thanks were also given to Claire for remaining as vice-chair and dedicated fundraising committee member.  Yearly reports were received from the following: Lingen Bowls, Chapel, Church, Flicks, Gardening Club, Resource Centre and Stitchers.  We wish a good year to all the hall officers in their term of service.


Christmas Drop-in Coffee Morning Christmas Card Exchange Get Together - Thursday 11th December at 11am onwards in the main hall.  This annual event takes place in December to enable village folk to come and enjoy a cuppa, whilst outwitting the Post Office by delivering your Village Christmas cards for FREE and by hand!  It was originally thought of by Pam Rosser (ex-WI Chair and now residing in Yorkshire) so that she could see all her friends before Christmas - this thought has now come into being at the village hall and simply explained (!) comes about by all attending putting their cards on a table in the right pile, under the given addressee name to be delivered to the designated letterbox by a willing volunteer! 

It's a great idea and makes short work of village card deliveries whilst giving everyone an excuse to have a pre-Christmas get together.  If you wish to donate an eatable to the offerings, help deliver cards or lend support in any other way please contact Pauline & Keith our monthly coffee morning hosts by phoning 01544 267736.  NOTE: This will be the only drop-in coffee morning held at the hall in December and there'll be no coffee morning on the 1st Jan'15 as it's a bank holiday.  We must thank both Pauline & Keith for keeping this usually twice monthly village get together going.
