Urgent News – Road Closure A529

Diversion Sign header
Road Sign on A529

The A529 to Audlem will be closed from Monday for a period of 2 weeks. This is to facilitate investigative work at the bridge where the regular flooding takes place. Access to the school should be unaffected but onwards travel to Audlem, Nantwich and Crewe will mean a diversion via Shavington or Tern Hill roundabout.

We are expecting there to be a further closure in August, hopefully to address the road repairs at the site of the temporary traffic lights.

Very Sad News

Milk bottles

We have just been informed that Martin Acton (Martin the Milk) passed away on 15th June, 2022 following a massive stroke. 

Martin’s services were used by many in Adderley and he was an essential service during the pandemic lockdown.

We send our sincere condolences to his wife Sheena and his family.

A Right Royal Breakfast

We have to say a BIG thank you to everybody who supported the Big Breakfast on Friday morning. Judging by people’s comments it was a big success and a great time was had by all. Good food, and a chance to meet and greet over a full English, tea, toast and marmalade. What’s not to like. We served 106 full English Breakfasts which was pretty good for a first time.

Of course it wouldn’t have happened without the amazing volunteers who were there from 7:00 am to prep the room and cook the amazing breakfasts. Fabulous team work from everybody and a huge thank you.

We must also thank our sponsors without whom this event would not have been possible so many thanks to Morrisons and Asda  in Market Drayton and Shepley’s Family Butchers in Market Drayton who provided the excellent bacon, sausage and Black Pudding which everybody enjoyed. A big thank you as well to Andy and Ann Davis who provided the lovely free range eggs to complete a perfect breakfast.

So, you think you can ride a bike then?

Well, we have a challenge for you at the Jubilee Party on the Green.  This bike in the pics may look harmless, but it has a definite quirk or two that make riding it a real “ride in the park” (sorry!)

We thought we would show you that it can be done, so just watch Jake’s demo below, but the question is………………………………………………………..  how good are you?   Can you do this, or will the bike beat you?  Our money is on the bike, but come and prove us wrong at the Party on the Green in Adderley on Saturday 4th June at 4,00pm. 


Its all Happening in Adderley for Jubilee Weekend!

Goodness Me!   So much to remember but so much fun to be had!

Don’t forget the Jubilee Quiz on Thursday night 2nd June in the village hall – bar will be open, but we would take it carefully,  if you want a chance of winning – you will need your wits about you!  

Then out of bed and up with the lark to sample a Full English Breakfast between 9.00 and 12.00 on Friday 3rd June.  Can’t wait to see you there, families, friends and neighbours,  for your most important meal of the day cooked by someone else!

As if that wasn’t enough at 4.00pm on Saturday 4th June, the Party on the Green.  There will be a barbecue and Crazy Bowls for all  at the Bowling Club, a bouncy castle, a Dog Show, some music and fun for the children, an Its a Knockout competition, an un-rideable bike to challenge those brave enough and ………………. in true Jubilee style we are asking you to bring along your favourite cake or pud to share.  We thought it would be wonderful to ask everyone to bring theirs along with the recipe so that if people enjoy yours, they can copy  the recipe and try and recreate it at home.  So get the oven going, and treat us all to your masterpiece.  We can’t wait!  

Keep an eye open, we will post more details over the next day or so,

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

Just a quick reminder about Saturday’s coffee morning at the Village Hall. The last coffee morning was such a success and people asked if we could have on on a Saturday so that those who go to work could join in. That seemed like a great idea so why not join us on Saturday morning between 10:30 and 12:00.

£2.00 gets you tea/coffee and a piece of cake then there’s a chance to catch up on the village news and meet new people.

See you Saturday. Any money raised goes to the Adderley Community Fund.

Countdown To The Jubilee

We kick off with a Jubilee Quiz on Thursday 2nd June followed by the Big Breakfast on Friday then there’s the Party On The Green from 4:00 on Saturday including Crazy Bowls, a BBQ and a Dog Show plus lots of things for the little ones. There’s a performance by Mic Wire and music from Dickie. What’s not to like?

As we lead into the Jubilee weekend the Village Hall Bar re-opens every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday starting next week and following on from the success of the last one there’s another Meet and Greet Coffee Morning on the Saturday 28th May from 10:30 in the Village Hall.
