Welcome to Knighton on Teme Parish Council

Knighton on Teme parish stands in 2593 acres of beautiful countryside at the foot of the Clee Hills. It has a population of around 500 inhabitants and almost 200 houses.
It has an extremely well kept parish room and a frequently used cricket pitch where league matches are played.
Unfortunately it has lost its two Inns and the village school which closed in 1983. Also gone is the railway station at Newnham Bridge which opened in 1864 and closed on 31st July 1962 after a span of 98 years. One public house has since reopened.
The church of St Michael and All Angels is a Grade I listed building and is kept in good condition. It is Norman Romanesque. Although the dedication is medieval there has been a church building on the site from Saxon times. Domesday Book records that there was a priest here in 1086.
There is a very ancient medieval preaching cross in the churchyard, and also a yew tree probably dating from the time of Edward I who ordered them to be planted as a protection against high winds.

How we are tackling dog fouling

We have seen a significant rise in the problem of dog fouling in our parish, in particular around Newnham Bridge.
We have decided enforcement is needed, so an officer from environmental health will be patrolling our area and can fine persons not clearing up after their dog or failing to carry bags on the spot £100 fines.
 
The patrols start this week.
 
We are encouraging our residents to join “The Green Dog Walking Scheme” with Malvern council.
This scheme encourages people to “scoop their Poop” and also gives people a link to report any offending owners of dogs who do not clear up after their pets.
 
Anyone joining The Green Dog Walking Scheme can pledge online and receive free bags and other items.
 
We hope that approaching this from both support and enforcement, we can stop this increasing problem in our parish.
