Llangarron Coronation Street Party 2023
Thanks to everyone who helped organise the street party on Langstone Lane on Sunday 7th June, particularly Nick, and to all who came along to enjoy the sunshine, picnics and neighbours.
Platinum Jubilee Celebration
Langstone Court Friday 3rd June 2022
What a wonderful day! Even the sun shone as over 150 people came to enjoy the celebration in the gardens and parkland of Langstone Court. Our thanks to Richard Jones for his popular conducted tours of the house.
The music played, people danced and chatted with friends old and new. The 1940s pub did a roaring traded our thanks to Mark and Lisa Taylor for all their hard work in installing and running it. The profits from the pub - over £300- have been donated to the military charity, Combat Stress.
The newly purchased Llangarron Comm. Assoc. defibrillator and training equipment was on display and will soon be installed in the old telephone box.
The committee have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback following the Jubilee celebration and we look forward to seeing you at our future events starting again from September.
Community First Responder
At a time when the West Midlands Ambulance Service have recorded their highest levels of 999 and 111 calls, you will be reassured to read that we have now a Community First Responder based in Llangarron.
Community First Responders (CFRs) are volunteers who respond to emergency 999 calls within their local community. Volunteer CFRs have received medical training from the West Midlands Ambulance Service and respond when available, in their own time and without pay, to emergency 999 calls in both urban and rural areas. They support ambulance staff by providing life-saving skills to patients in their local community until an emergency ambulance vehicle arrives. WMAS is responsible for training, mobilising and clinical governance.
CFR are equipped with defibrillators, medical oxygen and other equipment to deal with severe life threatening injuries. As well as responding to emergency 999 calls, CFRs promote health and wellbeing in their local community by raising the awareness of the importance of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of a defibrillator.
Our Llangarron based CFR volunteer is affiliated to the Ross on Wye scheme. The CFR Scheme is a registered charity, which provides the vehicle, equipment and uniform. All schemes are designed to be financially self-supporting. Although the Ambulance Service provide all necessary support, training and consumables, CFRs must raise funds for their uniform, equipment and vehicles. CFR schemes are usually involved in a variety of fundraising events to support their voluntary role in their local community. Although the Ross on Wye scheme currently has just two response cars, it is hoped that for a significant part of the week, one of the two vehicles will be operating from Llangarron. Even though a CFR might be going to a cardiac arrest or other life threatening incident, CFR’s do not use blue lights and sirens, so if you do see this vehicle in the local area, please give way, let them pass and help them help us.

Honouring Llangarron Men Who Served and Died in the Two World Wars:
Several years ago local historian Bill Webb decided to research the men listed on a 1914-1918 Roll of Honour displayed in St Deinst church. Bill's investigations eventually widened to include the second World War and also a Mosquito Plane Crash in 1944 at Langstone Court in which two men died. The airmen are also commemorated in the church.
These documents are now available on this website. You can download Bill's booklets by clicking here which will take you to the relevant Roll of Honour page or by selecting the "Church" tab above and then "Roll of Honour" from the side menu.
Stan Fryer, who lived in the village for many years with his wife Mary and witnessed the Mosquito crash in 1944, produced another account of life in Llangarron in the 1900's. The booklet includes photographs of many Llangarron houses with anecdotes and stories. A copy is also available for download on the same page. Click here.
With thanks to Bill and Stan.
