Neighbourhood Plan: Designated Area Consultation

The Three Parishes Neighbourhood Plan covers Norton In Hales, Adderley and Moreton Say. This will give us a say in how our villages develop over the next ten years so it’s an important plan and we all should be part of it.

Work has been underway to get it started over the last few months and we have formally notified Shropshire Council that we wish to develop our own Neighbourhood Plan. Shropshire Council have taken our proposal and put it out for consultation: this is an important first step.

The consultation will run until 24th October and you can see the proposed Designated Area here:

If you have a view on the nature and extent of the area you should respond to the consultation using the links found at that address.

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

Parish Council’s Response To The West Midlands Police Commissioner

Earlier this year Parish Council’s in the West Midlands were asked to respond to a survey by the Police Commissioner. We are fortunate in that we live in a low crime area however, when crimes do occur we suffer from the low level of resourcing that affects our Police Officers in Market Drayton. The response of the Parish Council is below and it reflects our lack of confidence in levels of policing.

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.  😉


Small black cat run over near Station Road.

Does anyone know who may own a small black cat, quite young, that has just been found run over on the main road opposite Station Road?   It has no collar or ID and appears to be plain black with no other markings.  Sadly it was probably killed instantly.

The young man who found the cat when he drove around the corner has knocked on all doors down Station Road and some of those on Green Bank with no luck.

If you may know who owns this cat please contact Paul and Val Nash who have brought the cat back to their home on Green Bank.

Thank you
