Hoby with Rotherby Parish Council (including Ragdale and Brooksby) supports the four communities in the parish. We endeavour to make Hoby, Rotherby, Ragdale and Brooksby a better place to live, work and visit.

The Parish Council meets six times a year at Hoby and District Village Hall starting at 7.30pm and all Parishioners are welcome to attend and view proceedings. Agendas are posted on Parish notice boards prior to each meeting and these with the minutes of previous meetings, can also be found on this website.

Hoby with Rotherby Neighbourhood Watch

The Hoby with Rotherby Neighbourhood Watch WhatsApp is now up and running. It is starting with 24 contacts on it, but the Parish Council is hoping for many more.

If you would like to be included into this Group and you have WhatsApp on your mobile phone get in touch with the Parish Clerk and he will pass your details on to the administrator of the Group, Rocky Leanders.

It is hoped that this will enable incidents and suspicious activity to be shared with each other, and to hopefully act as a deterrent to those who may be looking to target our villages. More »

Wild Flower Verge Lectern

Wild Flower Verge Lectern

The Wild Flower Lectern has now been installed on Brooksby Road, Hoby. It provides valuable information about the wild flowers and insects to be found on this protected verge, maintained by the Parish Council.

Do take a look at the lectern next time your are passing.

With thanks to Caroline Ellis for the original idea and of late to Candice and Garry Barker, Nicky Ainscough, Antonia Doyle and John Hendy for their contribution in helping to complete the project.

Heavy Snow, Hoby Road, Ragdale

Heavy Snow, Hoby Road, Ragdale

The 'Beast from the East' (Siberia) brought extreme weather conditions to the UK at the beginning of March. The snow and strong winds caused significant drifting on the Hoby Road at Ragdale on March 1st.

The picture shows the road after it had been opened again, but the drifts on the side of the road were still visible.

A very cold start to what was supposed to be the first day of spring!
