Gladestry Home Delivery Service

Gladestry Home Delivery Service

It is hoped that a home delivery service can be set up in Gladestry.

This will include dairy products including organic milk from Teme Valley Dairy, Tenbury Wells, in glass recycled bottles, bread & pastries from Sally's Pantry in Kington, as well as newspapers and any other goods from Spar garage.

A free sample of the organic milk is available so that you can taste the difference.

There needs to be enough interested people in Gladestry to make this happen.

For more details contact the delivery organiser Sue West on 01544 230076,

or Michael Johnson on 01544 370296

Co-op Local Community Fund

Please select Gladestry to receive support from Co-op Local Community Fund

We are delighted that Gladestry Village Hall has been selected by the Local Co-op Community fund to be one of their three good causes over the next eleven months.

Every time members shop at the Co-op 1% of what is spent on selected own brand products and services goes into the Local Co-op Community Fund. The fund is divided between the three chosen causes with customers able to select the cause that they would most like their 1% to go to. The fund  is divided proportionately according to customer votes, with money raised from the sales of carrier bags being divided equally between the three causes.

Co-op membership card holders can vote for their favourite of the three causes by visiting the Co-op website and signing into their  membership account.

(The process for doing this is  simpler than I expected!)

This is a great opportunity to help raise valuable funds for our hall which will benefit all its users.

If you would like any further information please call Hattie Budd 01544370642

N.B. In about 3 weeks, about £60 had already been collected

The defibrillator has now been installed in the old telephone box by the bridge, and is now available for emergency use.

It is hoped to arrange further courses in its use, and cardio pulmonary resuscitation generally, in the not too distant future

Gladestry Active Community Fund


The GACF was set up in November 2003 in order to administer the money still left in the Millennium Fund. A constitution was agreed, and the following objectives defined: - To stimulate and support activities, events and projects within the Gladestry Community Council area. - To aim to use the fund as a sort of seed capital for projects, whereby if a profit is made, some reimbursement is requested, but is not a requirement.

Annual Huntington Chase

Huntington Village Hall

29-09-2018 at 11:00 AM

Another year, another Chase; I hope you will join us. Do mention it to your friends even if they just want to walk it and feel free to dress up (you might win the prize) if you are not looking to beat your PB.  For riders who need to box to get here, Sandra and John Jones at Lower House Farm, Huntington, HR53PU kindly offer their yard for parking.

By setting off an hour before , walkers will be along Hergest Ridge as the main field starts to go by and more importantly, should be back at the Swan in time for the fun and refreshments. Please therefore walkers, remember to turn up by 10.45 to register and be off by 11. Marshals may not all be in place so a course plan is attached. All others, register from 11am.
As always, a few helpers are needed; if you would like to marshal or assist with registration before the start or at the finish, please let me know asap.
This year, all proceeds are going to St Michael's Hospice and our sponsor for the event is S W Maddy & Son.
 Full details are below. I look forward to seeing as many as can come but don't hesitate to get in touch if there are any queries.
Your email address is only used by me for the purpose of informing you of the upcoming Huntington Chase and, in due course, the review. If you wish to receive no further information, just let me know and your details will be deleted.
