Kilpeck Group Parish Review

Kilpeck Group Parish review
Proposed change to Kilpeck Group Parish Council to reflect the evolving community

Herefordshire Council is consulting with the residents of Kilpeck, Kenderchurch, St Devereux, Treville and Wormbridge about potential changes to the group parish.

The first stage of the consultation – legally known as a ‘community governance review’ – is looking to hear local views about proposed changes to merge the group into a single parish council.

A ‘community governance review’ can consider a number of potential changes for parish councils to make sure they reflect the evolving democratic needs of their community. This could be by creating or merging parish councils, altering a parish boundary or even changing the number of councillors that serve the parish.

Councillor Nigel Shaw, Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance, Housing and Corporate Services, said:

“Parish councils are the most local form of government. They are the voice of the local community, working with other tiers of government and external organisations to improve the quality of life in the area. As communities move and grow, it is vital that the parish council reflects the democratic needs of that community, so I would urge residents to have their say on proposed changes to the future of their parish council.”

The results of the initial consultation will feed into formal recommendations for Kilpeck Group Parish Council, which will open for consultation in May 2018.

The proposal can be viewed online http://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/kilpeckcgr – it only takes a few minutes to have your say. All comments must be received by Friday 23 March 2018.

Phase 1 of the ‘Community Governance Review’ runs until 23 March 2018. This will feed into the recommended proposals, which will then go out to formal consultation in May 2018.

There are proposed changes to the following parish councils:

Bishopstone and District Parish Council
Potential changes to the ward boundary between the Bishopstone group parish and Stretton Sugwas.

Brockhampton Group Parish Council
Proposed changes to the number of seats within the group to better reflect the number of electors.

Kilpeck Group Parish Council
Proposed changes to merge the group into a single parish council.

Longtown Group Parish Council
Proposed changes to separate the parish of Walterstone from the Longtown group parish, and amalgamate Walterstone with Ewyas Harold Group Parish Council.

Moreton-on-Lugg Parish Council
There are a small number of properties affected by a border anomaly. It was proposed that these properties would be better represented in the neighbouring parish of Wellington.

Peterchurch Parish Council
Proposed changes to increase the number of seats on the council by one to reflect an increase in population.

Wellington Parish Council
Proposed changes to the parish boundary could be considered with specific reference to a small number of properties which were currently in Moreton Parish. Similarly the northern boundary adjacent to the railway may be better served under Hope under Dinmore Parish.

ZOE’S GENTLE EXERCISE CLASS
Re-starts on Tuesday 9th January, 10.45 – 11.45
KILPECK VILLAGE HALL
Why not give it a go?

This Gentle Exercise class has been designed to accommodate a wide range of ages, abilities/disabilities and fitness levels.

All of the exercises can be carried out seated, using a chair for support or free-standing, with various levels of impact. This is to ensure everyone can can work out at an ideal level for their individual needs and also exercise alongside friends of varying abilities. Main exercises are carried out in sets or as a circuit with each exercise being performed for 1 minute intervals. This again enables people to work at different paces, take a break whenever they need to and not feel that they have to ‘keep-up’ with a routine to music or worry about missing a beat (Though music is played throughout to aid motivation and provide a beat for those who wish to exercise to it). All stretching and toning exercises are carried out seated or standing, so there is no need to get down onto the floor at all.

Each session begins with an adaptable warm-up and pre-stretches and ends with cool-down stretches and a 10 minute meditation/relaxation session to leave you ready to face the rest of your day.

Don’t be fooled by the word ‘gentle’ in the title however, this just means that the class is adaptable to varying needs. You will come away feeling as if you have had a good whole body workout. You will burn calories, improve aerobic fitness, build strength, improve balance, posture and muscle tone. You will also get the added exercise benefits of increased energy and motivation, mental well being and relaxation.
