WELL done to those of the village who took part in the Ledbury Carnival Parade this past bank holiday.
The weather was good and a great crowd turned out to watch the proceedings.
A number of Wellington Heath residents walked in together, across the fields, through the apple and cherry orchards, across more fields and so down into the town to enjoy the day.
There was plenty of food on offer as well as lots to see at the various booths.
The management of the 675 bus service from Malvern to Ledbury via Wellington Heath, is to be praised: Ascot Bus Company rescued my handbag from the bus and returned it to me when I inadvertently left it on the bus last week.
The next village Pop-Up- Pub where residents have a chance to meet and share a drink takes place next Friday, September 6, in the memorial hall, from 7.30pm until late.
Bring your own drinks, glasses, hall-donation, and lots of news.
A Harvest Festival service is planned for October 13.
The book club meets on Tuesday evening, September 10, and this month’s choice for discussion will be The Morville Hours by Katherine Swift.
Phone Anne on 01531 632439 for more details. Newcomers welcome.
The Garden Club will meet again on Wednesday, September 11, at the memorial hall, 7.45pm for 8pm.
All those wishing to take part in the village cricket afternoon (at Dillon’s Orchard, 2.30pm–5.30pm, September 15), please start practising your batting and bowling.
Everyone is welcome to come along and a scrumptious cricket tea will be served.
Donations will go to charity.
The work by Welsh Water on Horse Road and the Common is coming to an end and should be finished very soon.
Let’s hope that’s not the same for this summer: “Summer is the stuff of dreams. When adults sit at their desks, and children sit in school, they dream of summer.
“Summer is the time of infinite fun. The day seems to last forever, and the fun never stops.
“It is a time of romance, excitement and an enhanced enjoyment of life.
“Somehow summer never seems to last long enough. It is always over before we get a chance to fully experience its power.”
Excerpt from “Summer” by Family Friend Poems.
