We are grateful to Jon Bernardes for letting us know that the mobile library service has been suspended until further notice. We will update you with any further information if and when it becomes available. The mobile library will not be at the road by the Rectory Lane junction with the A529 for the foreseeable future.
The following information has been received from Shropshire Council:
I am writing to inform you of disruption today to the garden/food waste collection service for some properties in your division. Veolia’s Wem depot has had a significant number of Covid 19 cases and self-isolation which has meant that some garden waste collection rounds will not be completed today. I have listed the areas below and also attached a spreadsheet which lists all post codes affected, although that list is long and rather cumbersome.
This information will also be distributed via the Council’s website and social media channels.
THE COLLECTION SERVICES FOR RECYCLING AND GENERAL RUBBISH HAVE NOT BEEN AFFECTED.
Our advice to any residents affected is to bring their bin back in and present it again in their next scheduled collection day in two weeks time. I will keep you posted about any further developments as information becomes available.

We have had a lovely letter care of Iain Wilson thanking everybody for their efforts in raising £470 for Hope House this Christmas. You can read the letter below and a BIG Thank You to everybody who participated either by taking part or by helping to organise. An extra special Thank You to Chelsey and Stuart “The Vocal Couple” who hosted the event from Cyprus. Well done everybody!
As we get to New Year we wanted to say a special thank you to all of the people who have made life in Adderley so special in this year of pandemic and lockdown. Some of them you all know and some work quietly away in the background.
Despite the restrictions of lockdown we have had an amazing year with things to enjoy that have brought us together as a community. People have had flowers to enjoy round the village and the surrounding countryside has provided us with a lovely environment. The Book Shelter has become a place to swap and share – someone has kept it tidy and safe. The WhatsApp group has helped people with shopping and prescriptions and there are all those people who have shouted over the fence: “Are you alright?” just to make sure.
Hopefully, by this time next year things will be closer to normal though we suspect that many of the things that have happened this year will become regular features of the village calendar.
The people who have quietly organised in the background are too many to mention but they know who they are and we thank them all. In the meantime we hope you will enjoy the video which picks up some of the highlights of 2020, the year in lockdown.
It’s going to be an odd sort of Christmas in Lockdown but we hope that everybody has the best time possible especially if Santa is visiting your house this year.
Let us not forget people who live close to us. We are grateful to Hannah Platts who sent us lots of ideas for making sure that neighbours were okay over the festive season though the new lockdown rules mean that we need to take care. Please take time to give neighbours a call to make sure they’re okay; give them a wave or shout Merry Christmas over the fence.
We have posted some useful emergency information here:
We will update this if any new information becomes available. In the meantime, keep safe, have fun and enjoy this special time of year.
Pete Blasè has been Postman to Adderley Village for over 25 years. He’s now taking a well deserved retirement though he tells us that he’s not going to be idle but out and about doing things.
We managed to catch him on his last round in the village and we presented him with cards and a small token of appreciation from the Parish Council.
I’m sure we all wish him the very best.
It’s December 21st tomorrow is the first day of winter and there’s only 4 sleeps to Christmas Day! It’s been a grey damp shortest day of the year as we settle into Christmas lockdown. So as a reminder of just how amazing Adderley can be we thought you would like to sample one or two of the images from the last couple of months and hope that it might cheer up somebody on this, the longest night.
Many of the images were taken on smart phones so if you ever have a favourite image that you want to share why not send it into the website either through the Adderley Village FB page or through email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re still counting and donations are still coming in BUT it’s looking like £400 for Hope House. Yes, you read that correctly, estimated £400 and counting.
Adderley is amazing – but you knew that!
A huge thank you to the team behind the scenes in particular the Vocal Couple in Cyprus . There were a lot of tired people by 22:30 last night and in Cyprus it was after midnight. Even Bronte the dog was ready for a sleep.
We had support from all over the country and even from Cyprus and Spain in the end so a big thank you to everybody.
So final figure when we have it and well done Adderley you are amazing. We will be accepting donations in the next couple of days just contact email@example.com for bank details or cash donations to Iain Wilson, Willow Lodge or the Elves at Adderley Barns.
In the meantime we’re counting sleeps until Christmas Day.
