One way or another the proposals from Shropshire Council affect everybody. This is a fundamental change to the way in which parking charges are levied across the County. This affects when you can be charged to park, when you can be charged and how much you can be charged. It is worth making your views heard.
The West Mercia Fire Governance Consultation may not be the most appealing title BUT this proposal to merge the governance of the fire services is attracting some strong views from across the West Mercia region. If you do have an opinion you need to make it count by responding to this consultation.

Every village has its unsung heroes and Adderley is no exception. Our thanks, once again, go to Barry Hales for the lovely flowers he provides and maintains around the village. It makes Adderley the place it is and we should applaud, loudly, this amazing contribution to village life.
Did you know that the playground is unbelievably well used by children in the village? Just wander by at the end of the school day and you will see parents and children having fun, and that’s the way it should be. For a while now the benches in the play area have been is an increasingly sorry state so we are pleased to have been in a position to provide new benches in this well used facility.
In addition, following requests from the parishioners we have been able to provide a further bench in the old bus shelter at the junction of Green Bank and Station Road. The steady climb up to this point is challenging for some of our respected older residents and it’s a pleasure to be able to provide a point of rest in the shelter (despite the lack of buses)
People are often surprised by this BUT the Parish Council does not have the power to impose speed restrictions OR to initiate penalties for speed infringements. Whodathunkit!
BUT we can reflect the concerns of residents to the powers that be. To this end we have managed to secure the use of the speed checker again in order to remind wayward motorists that it’s a 30 mile per hour zone on Green Bank AND to collect data on the number of infringements. This we can use to make our case for some official enforcement.
So keep your eyes open, watch your speed and let’s see what the speed checker says:
