Welcome to Rous Lench Parish Council

The Parish of Rous Lench comprises of two settlements. These being the village of Rous Lench and the hamlet of Radford. Rous Lench lies some six miles to the North of Evesham and has a history that can be traced back to Saxon times. Evidence of a settlement in those times can be found in fragments of carved Saxon stone within the Norman Parish Church of St Peter's. The Parish is set on a generally west facing and well-wooded slope and is rural in nature. There are about one hundred or so dwellings including several prominent farmsteads, the manorial Rous Lench Court, many old and listed buildings including the grade one St Peter's Church, a Victorian Village Hall, and several newer but substantial houses. A significant part of the housing stock was built in the mid-nineteenth century around the pretty Village Green by the manorial incumbents Rous, Boughton and Chafy. Rous Lench has a few but important facilities including St Peter's Church, a village hall, and a public house, The Wheelbarrow Castle. Today most residents work outside the Parish although there are several thriving local businesses including Hazelwood Trailers, MHF skip hire and Dudley's Coaches.

Meeting 23rd March postponed

 CORONA VIRUS UPDATE: In light of recent developments with the virus we believe it’s probably the right thing to do to postpone the parish council meeting this Monday evening (23rd March). 
 
We have pencilled in another meeting for about 4 weeks time which would be April 20th at 7:30pm. 
This will give us a bit of time to see how things are progressing. This meeting could be online instead (I will be looking into the easiest way of doing that) as government are Considering bringing forward legislation to allow this.
 
In the interim myself and David, the Chairman are going to pull together a bit of an update on where we are with the various key topics and also the start of a plan on what to do to support residents in this difficult time. 
 
I have set up a Facebook page for Rous Lench Parish Council. If you’re on Facebook, please ‘like’ it and also please invite other residents to do so.
