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.

The Mortimer Medical Practice - more news and updates from your Patient Participation Group (PPG).

Herefordshire Council has published an extensive database of First World War memorials online.

Lingen Fete - total takings on the day were just over £1500, slightly ahead of last year & the largest gross figure of all the churchyard fetes.  After provision for expenses the net sum available for sharing between the Village Hall, the Church, & the Air Ambulances is £1280, which is an extraordinarily good result.  So everyone contributing parts and/or labour can be well pleased, most importantly because everyone (we think) had a really good time, despite the showers.

Vehicle Excise Licence Notice - a quick note from the DVLA to remind members that paper tax discs are being discontinued from 1st October 2014 with the system then going completely electronic.  The important thing to remember is although tax discs are going; you still need to pay the tax itself! 
Please note: Drop-in coffee mornings at the village hall will take a well earned break during the month of August.

CONCERNED ABOUT SPEEDING?  The Safer Roads Partnership in West Mercia runs a community concern speed enforcement programme, launched in September 2009, which aims to address concerns from local people.  This programme has been introduced as an idea for discussion in our parish as a possible answer to your concerns regarding constant speeding and a need for enforcement of speed restrictions in our area. 

You can learn more about this programme, which is currently in operation in Wigmore, by clicking on this link:  or by contacting our local CSO Adam Harris.  11.06.14
