When you are using Adderley Parish website you may have noticed that there is a small icon of a little figure on the right hand side. If you scroll the page up and down the little figure always stays in view.
We’ve been working to make our website more accessible. If you click on the little figure it will open up some accessibility tools. You can increase the font size, change the contrast or even get a screen reader to read out the contents for you.
It’s not perfect yet but it’s a start and we are still busy behind the scenes trying to make it better. So if you’re struggling to access the website why not give it a go and see if it helps. Let us know what you think.
In the meantime we will continue to try and improve access to Adderley Parish.
The Three Parishes Neighbourhood Plan that’s what! Back last summer when we had our last Village Meeting we went through the initial results of the open forums and we said then that there would be a relatively quiet period whilst we undertook some data gathering. Well that’s just what we did, and there was a lot of data.
We are about to finalise the big questionnaire which will go to every household in the three parishes. It’s important that we get as many people as possible to fill that in. We will continue to update you as the day for getting the questionaire out to you gets closer but right now we’re looking at the end of March, early April.
Before then we will be giving you regular updates via the village Facebook Page and the Parish website. We will also be having a village meeting to update you on the Neighbourhood Plan and developments on the A529 and all of the other things that have engaged the Parish Council over the last twelve months. In the meantime you can keep up to date by going to the Three Parishes Neighbourhood Plan website and while you’re there you can see some of the maps and data that we have been sent by going to the “Documents” tab; it’s all interesting stuff. For those of you who like such things all of the notes of the meetings we have held over the year are published on the “Minutes” tab.
The Three Parishes Neighbourhood Plan website is updated regularly by Geoff in Moreton Say and new updates are flagged on the Adderley Parish website on the right hand side where it says “3 Parishes Neighbourhood Plan” just under the link to our Facebook Page.
The Christmas Carols Round The Village raised an astonishing £370 this year for Hope House! Wowzers! This was one of our best year’s so far so an enormous thank you to the hardy few who tramped the streets in the cold and the dark and brought a little Christmas cheer – not always tunefully – to the lovely residents of Adderley.
An extra thank you this year to the people of Adderley Barns who made us so welcome and treated us to mince pies and mulled wine as well as giving so generously. A further thank you to John Fishburn and his family who once again gave us Christmas cheer in a glass of port. We also had chocolates in Green Bank and homemade wines and cake from Hugh in Corbett Drive.
A final thank you to Adderley Village Hall and the bar volunteers who gave us mince pies and welcome respite at the end of the evening.

The Adderley Village Hall Committee have again very kindly agreed to let us hi-jack the regular Village Quiz Night on Thursday 21st November 2019.
As usual the main object of the evening is to ridicule the Quiz Master and eat as much cheese as possible whilst raising money for a charity.
This year we are raising money for Lymphoma Action, the UK’s only charity dedicated to Lymphoma, the fifth most common cancer.
Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer which can affect anyone at any age including children. It is usually treatable.
Our target is £500.
Strictly teams of four. £5 per person to include a substantial Ploughman’s Supper. Joseph Heler provide the cheese so there is always plenty of it.
Remember, Adderley Village Hall has a licensed bar. As we are getting the hall at a very much reduced rate it is only fair that we support the bar so please do not bring your own drinks and glasses. The fun starts at 7.30 p.m.
No need to buy tickets – just book your team in with me – contact details below
