Speeding on Rectory Lane Plus The Latest on the A529

Things are happening on the A529!  Shropshire Council have secured funding for safety measures to the A529, a large section of which runs through Adderley parish. Shropshire Council’s funding application can be seen here Road Safety Fund Application . The Sub-Committee have already made contact with Shropshire Council’s Project Team to maximise the funds that are made available to reduce the average speed of traffic through our village.  As such a letter has been submitted to outline our initial suggestions taking into account the comments we have already received from parishioners Letter to Shropshire Council re A529 .  We will continue to engage fully with Shropshire Council as the project progresses.  You can see that we have received a positive response from the Council Submission Response

You will all be aware of the speed monitoring sign which continues to move around the village, collecting data and raising awareness.   You can click on the graphs below to see the latest results from Rectory Lane.

We always welcome new members to join our Sub-Committee and value any comments/suggestions from parishioners.

Adderley Race Night

A great night once again at what is one of the year’s biggest fund raisers for the Village Hall. A huge thank you to the volunteers who sold tickets, prepared food, set up, decorated and manned the bar.

A New Village Hall for Adderley Can You Help?

At the Village Meeting on 30th May 2018 it was decided that rather than refurbish the Village Hall and Bowling Pavilion, we should erect a new combined building on the site of the existing Bowling Pavilion. A Building Sub Group of the Adderley Village Hall Committee was formed from volunteers present on the night.

The Sub Group, under the Chairmanship of Jim Faulkner, is made up of those who have lived in the village for most of their lives as well as newcomers. There is also quite a wide age span and skill set.

First, we have to establish whether Planning Permission may be granted for a new building and if Funding might be available. Do you have expertise in either of these areas? If so, and you would like to help we would love to hear from you.

Contact Jim Faulkner – Email: or Jane Rushton, the Sub Group Secretary – Email:

We will publish the minutes of our meetings on this web site
