The Stone Snake

Despite the cold, the wet and the snow Sophie braved the elements to begin the stone snake on the village green. An amazing array of all of the painted stones that were made for the Easter stone hunt plus the ones that didn’t make it into the hunt because we had so many.

If you’ve been inspired to paint your own stone please feel free to add it to the snake. Let’s see if we can make it stretch all around the tree.

Become A Parish Councillor

Another chance to join the presentation on becoming a Parish Councillor this Friday on Zoom.

There is an election on May 6th and our current Parish Council has two vacancies. We’re losing a female councillor and we would like to see applications from female members of the Parish. 

Meetings are roughly once a month and they last approximately 90 minutes. There’s a little bit of reading but beyond that the amount of time you give is your choice. You can take advantage of Councillor training if you wish and that takes place in Shrewsbury when we aren’t locked down.

Link to the poster for the presentation is below. Please give this some thought we would love to see you volunteer for this worthwhile role in the Parish.

 

Update On Trees For Captain Tom

A quick update on the post that Michelle sent us earlier this week regarding Captain Tom’s funeral on Saturday. It was a popular post for a little website like ours with over a hundred visits to the website and 26 active engagements on our FB feed.

Lots of people liked it but nobody had any thoughts on anything specific so if you are going to take a little time out to remember Captain Tom on Saturday we’re sure you will be doing your own thing whether it’s a flag, a victoria sponge or just taking a moment or two to stop and think.

Many thanks to Michelle for taking the time to send us the links (which you can at the end of this piece) and a reminder that we’re always on the look out for pieces of interest from the people of Adderley Parish.

Trees for Captain Tom

We’ve had a post from Michelle Corner who would like Adderley to join in with remembering Captain Tom whose funeral is on Saturday 27th February. 

Captain Sir Tom Moore:

It was such sad news we received a couple of weeks ago about the passing of a truly great inspirational man; Captain Sir Tom Moore.

I read in the news yesterday about his funeral which is planned for this coming Saturday.  Reading on, his daughters had commented that Captain Tom had wondered whether the events in the last year of his life would lead to the requirement for more Victoria sponge cakes for his funeral wake!  Sadly, that is not to be as we all know that restrictions and keeping each other safe is still part of our everyday life, and as much as many of us I am sure would love to be there to give him the send off he truly deserves, we are simply not allowed!  

Therefore, I wondered if you would all like to contribute somehow to acknowledging the passing of Captain Sir Tom on Saturday 27th Feb?  I wondered whether we could simply hang out our Union Jacks, or bunting for the day.  Make a Victoria Sponge cake and dedicate it to Tom, or even (if allowed) we could plant a tree in the village, (maybe a Christmas tree) and dedicate this to him, giving him a salute every Christmas the village get around it to turn on the lights and sing carols together.

Just a thought!  

So what do you think? Let us know by clicking the radio button below.

We think remembering Captain Tom is a great idea.
