Green Party town & county councillor Jenny Bartlett, has been installed as the 464th Mayor of Leominster.

She is the second Green mayor of the town in four years (the term of office is one year).

In her acceptance speech, Jenny said she will treat the job as a much more than a ceremonial role and help nurture an ‘active citizenry.’

As her mayoral charity she has chosen SHYPP – Supported Housing for Young People Project, which provides accommodation, support and training for young people of 16 to 25.


  1. I have sent this email to the Town Clerk as no one seems to be responsible for allowing the North Herefordshire Hunt Boxing Day meet in Corn Square

    As a local resident, I am very concerned about the North Herefordshire Hunt’s Boxing Day Meet in Corn Square, Leominster

    Please answer the following questions.

    Has the event organiser completed an events application pack?

    Has a competent person completed a risk assessment?

    Has the event organiser obtained legal permission to close any roads?

    Does the event organiser have a street collection licence?

    Is the event organiser using council equipment to close the roads?

    If so, do they have the correct permission and who is paying for the equipment hire?

    Who is cleaning up after the event, and who is paying for the clean up?

    If the hunt has a exemption to the usual requirements for holding public events, please would you let me know exactly where the exemption is specified. If the hunt has no specific exemption, then it is subject to the usual procedures and licensing requirements. Nobody is exempt from Health and Safety. If the answers to these questions are unsatisfactory, then the event must be cancelled.
    Yours sincerely
    Claudia Petley
