Progress So Far

Progress on the B4224 Unfortunately we have learnt today the the B4224 will not reopen in Fownhope in February “BUT” hopefully Easter .

As a Parish Council, we work together to bring to the notice matters of concern and interest to Herefordshire Council and the Parish as a whole.Doing this is not an unrewarding function quite the opposite, but we are a little stretch at the moment and would like to co-opt two new Parish Councillors. Yatton is in need of Councillor also Sollershope. We would like to invite you as Parishioners living away from the B4224 to join us as your input and views around your part of the Parish are of interest to us all.

Please contact the Clerk if you are interested in joining us.
