Where’s a Dog Poo Fairy When You Need It

Perhaps the Dog Poo Fairy is in lockdown? Who Knows? Or maybe their isn’t such a thing as a Dog Poo Fairy!

Truth is dog poo is reappearing on the pavements and pathways in Adderley, particularly along Green Bank although the canal tow path is getting its fair share. There are dog poo bins! There’s one at the end of Green Bank and there’s one on Hawks Moor near the bridge and there’s another one on the bridge at the other end of the tow path walk. 

We can’t very well blame the users of the canal, because they’re not there so we have to look to ourselves. Is it fair that the vast majority of responsible dog owners clear up their mess and yet the odd one or two feel that it’s okay to leave the mess, on the path for somebody else to step in. Besides, it isn’t nice to look at, is it?

So can we ask that if it’s you could you please take a little bag with you, pick up the dog poo and put it in the bin provided. Thank you.

Be Inspired By Pentabus

This is a lovely idea.  Why not log on and watch Pentabus live recording of one of the dramas that they normally bring to rural village halls.  The first one ‘Here I Belong’

is a wonderful story about the decline of rural villages and one wonderful story of hope in adversity.  It will make you laugh and cry, but it will also make you think.  It was released last Friday  but you should be able to watch it still by following the link below.
Then every Friday at 2.00 pm Pentabus will release another one.  Go on give it a go.
Dear Friends,
To celebrate World Theatre Day and to help you through these uncertain times, we are going to release recordings of our past shows on our website and social media channels. They can be streamed for free. These will remain live for the next three months and will be released weekly on a Friday at 2pm for anyone to access.
The first production to be released will be Here I Belong by Matt Hartley on Friday 27 March, watch the trailer above and follow the link below to the live recording.

Our other shows to follow include Crossings by Deirdre Kinahan and Each Slow Dusk by Rory Mullarkey. The recordings will be accompanied by social media Q & A’s with cast and creative teams from the productions, details of which will be announced via social media.
We are extremely proud to have been the first company to live stream theatre directly from village halls into homes and community spaces across the world.

Meat Deliveries In Adderley – Starting 2nd April

Chris and Lois McDermott have been talking to Mr Shepley who has a butcher’s shop in Market Drayton. At this time, when shopping is becoming more difficult for some of us, he is happy to make deliveries in Adderley.

I have spoken with Mr Shepley again this afternoon and we have finalised arrangements for the delivery of meat and other products to Adderley residents.

There will be ONE delivery per week on Thursdays and orders must be placed on the Wednesday.

  • Deliveries will start on THURSDAY next week (02/04/20)
  • All orders must be EMAILED to loisandchris@googlemail.com between 8am and 10am     on WEDNESDAYS (The reason for placing a collective order is so that Shepley’s are         not inundated with individual phone calls or trying to match orders to answerphone          messages.
  • With your order please give your full name, address and telephone number and any         specific instructions for delivery.
  • Orders should be a minimum of approximately £20.
  • Payment will be by mobile card machine, cheque or cash
  • Do not feel obliged to place an order every wee.

Hopefully this will work but we will just have to try it and see. I will pass on any information about meat prices and products as and when I receive them. Please feel free to pass on this information to others who live in Adderley.
