Border Group Parish Councillor Vacancies -Lingen Village Parish will have two vacancies for parish councillors in the May 2015 elections. One is because of our esteemed and current councillors Geoff Bevan who, very unfortunately, is standing down.  Geoff has kindly served the Border Group Parish Council as a Lingen Councillor for the past eight years and has always listened to the thoughts and views of his electorate and acted on those views whilst taking votes for his community on the parish council.  Geoff is a stalwart of our Chapel here in Lingen (having been married there) as is his family.  He has always been relied upon to take the down-to-earth, common sense approach to all matters concerning us here in Lingen Parish and will be undoubtedly be extremely missed.  If you wish to stand as a parish councillor or nominate a councillor of your choice for Lingen: for which there are two vacancys, please contact Herefordshire Council direct. https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/government-citizens-and-rights/democracy/council-parish-town-council-and-councillors
We will miss you Geoff!

Christmas Drop-in Coffee Morning Christmas Card Exchange Get Together - Thursday 4th December 11.30am onwards in the main hall.  This annual event takes place in December to enable village (and beyond) folk to come and enjoy a cuppa and something delicious to eat whilst annoying 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 and outsmart the village postie - 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 or help in any way please contact Pauline & Keith our monthly coffee morning hosts by phoning 01544 267736.  Please note: this will be the only drop-in coffee morning held at the hall in December and we must thank both Pauline & Keith for keeping this usually twice monthly village get together going.
