Maisemore is a village just north of Gloucester on the West bank of the River Severn.

Included here on the village website are pages for the various Societies, Groups and Clubs active in the village, together with Neighbourhood Watch and a link to Parish Council website which has recently been reincarnated! There is also a page showing Businesses operating in Maisemore where known.

Maisemore Village Hall now has its own website - click on www.MaisemoreVillageHall.co.uk to access it - however I've currently left some of the information on this website for completeness.

Buildings featured include the Church and the Village Hall which is available for hire. There are also views taken along the "Maisemore Walk" (see below) and pages dedicated to the "Coronation Avenue" and the new "Millennium Avenue".

There was recently a petition to the government for:

A417 Maisemore - To raise a section of road to help with flooding issues and reconnect the transport network

Click here for the result (it will open in a new window) - it attracted 691 signatures. 

It was of course highly unlikely ever to get close to the 100,000 threshold which would have triggered a debate in the House of Commons and thus some people as a consequence might have suggested it was futile bothering to sign. "Why should I fill it in? - it's a waste of time...". However, we believed it would be a great asset for any discussion with people locally - not just with the relevant Members of Parliament, but also with councillors and services bodies. Indeed the raising of the road is now included as one of the projects in the draft Transport Plan albeit for 2021-2026.

Here's an aerial view taken from a similar point about 25 years ago (click on to enlarge - it will open in a new browser window) - spot the differences between then and now (but there are no prizes...):
