Adderley School have come up with a wonderful seasonal fundraising idea which will mean you can deck your door with a beautiful home-made wreath whilst raising some much needed funds for Adderley School.  A win/win situation we think!

There are two options on offer, and both will give you an amazing home-made wreath that you can hang with pride on your door for all to admire.

Option One:  A ring with all the greenery already in place, and supplied with a range of dried fruit, fir cones, feathers and a bow for you to attach as you wish to the ready greened ring

Option Two: A plain ring will be supplied along with the greenery but you can attach this yourself in whatever combination you prefer.  Florists wire will be provided as well as the fruit, fir cones, feathers and bow for you to add yourself when you have made your ring.

Both options will be delivered to your door in a box along with written instructions and guidance on how to construct your wreath  A ‘how to’ video can be supplied on request demonstrating how to build your wreath.

The cost is £30 per box and these can be delivered to your door, or to a pick up point in the village if you prefer.

Payment with order prior to delivery and orders must be received by 15th November to give the florist time to make up the boxes prior to delivery at the end of November.  

To place your order please contact Carolyn by email: or her mobile 07904190274  Please include your name, address a contact number and confirm your payment method.  

Payment with order £30 to Friends of Adderley School (Cheques) or cash in an envelope with your details for contact for delivery.

Road Repairs Outside The School

Road repairs outside Adderley School were finally completed on Tuesday morning. After a couple of hours of confused traffic re-routing Cllr Keith Mycock went out to record the moment.

Everybody is pleased. Cllr Mycock has pointed out that another metre of repairs would have captured that final pot hole: but hey ho that’s for another day.  😉



You know Christmas is on its way when the first Advent candle is lit.

This Sunday we will be holding a Christingle service at Adderley church. The service starts at 6pm and all families are welcome to join us. We would like to invite some children to do a bible reading at the service and also sing some special songs. If you feel you are able to attend, could you please comment on this post so we can give out the parts. Hope to see you there! Also a massive thank you to ‘The Friends of Adderley School’ for helping prepare the christingles!
