Oh my! A long weekend and so much to do. There’s lots going on in Adderley during Jubilee weekend. 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. 

Details below plus a leaflet you can download and keep.

What a lovely morning!

Coffee Morning Header

If you didn’t come along to the Coffee Morning in the village hall today, you missed a real treat!  The cakes were luscious and the conversation even better.

It was lovely to welcome lots of people who are new to the village and who were keen to meet others, chat and find out if they had anything in common.   It was also lovely to hear lots of views and ideas about what people would like to see happening in the village and to note that people were keen to be involved in all sorts of different ways.  

It looks as if there will be another one organised but perhaps on a Saturday next time as we had a number of people who work, comment on the fact that they would have loved to come but couldn’t on a week day.  Watch the website for details.

Volunteers Needed

We’re looking for volunteers to help make Adderley Playgroup the very best it can be.

If you are able to help with set up, running the group and clean up on a Wednesday morning we’d love to hear from you! 

We’re looking for people who can help out regularly: every week, every two weeks or even just once a month.

You don’t need to have a child at the group to volunteer. You just need to be enthusiastic and be willing to get stuck in

If you are interested just visit the Adderley Playgroup Facebook page and leave a comment.

Easter Trail Update

Its been fabulous to see and hear the children around the village doing the quiz over the last 10 days to find the eggs.  We hope you’ve enjoyed it.  The postbox is still on the village green on the fence near the Bowling Green if you have a completed sheet with the puzzle of the mystery word solved.  It will be taken down tomorrow (Sunday) and entries checked.    Our sincere apologies for the delay in putting the postbox up, it was an oversight on our part.

We hope you have all had a lovely Easter break and look forward to seeing you all at the Jubilee weekend.  Keep checking the website for updates on whats on 

Meet & Greet Coffee Morning – next Friday

Don’t forget the Coffee Morning in the village hall next Friday 29th April, from 10.30 am.

Whether you are new to the village, newly retired, a new mum at home with baby, or a local because you have been here for some time, why not pop down for an hour or so? 

The idea,  is to just come together for a chat, a coffee or tea, and a nice piece of cake.  Find out a bit about what’s going on locally, meet a few new people perhaps and, if people are interested, explore what else you may like to see going on in the village as our community gradually re-opens.  If there is enough interest we would like to make this a regular event so please come and join us.  You will be very very welcome.   

If you can’t come for any reason but would be interested in future events, or prefer it to be at a different time or on a different day please let us know.    This is your community and we want it to be there for you.    If you click on the Event below you can tell us if you are coming…..  It does help to guarantee enough cake! 

Upcoming Events

Speed Radar Data and Temporary Traffic Lights.

This week the Village Hall hosted the parish councils Parish Meeting for 2022. Which saw presentations from members of the Parish Council updating parishioners on activities and projects the Parish Council have been involved with over the last twelve months.  

During the meeting a presentation was delivered by Cllr Iain Wilson who forms part of the Parish Council Speed Concerns sub committee. One of the responsibilities for this group is the management of the Speed Radar that is located within the Village at one of four authorised locations. The Parish Council purchased the Radar four years ago and has been used as a mechanism to slow traffic within the village and at the same time recording data for analysis that is submitted to Shropshire Highways. It has proved to have worked with good effect and also been used to support concerns regarding traffic speeds.

The presentation included some of the latest data recorded, Cllr Wilson explained what this data represented and also demonstrated how it is used by Shropshire Council for analysis. See attached data sheet. 

Cllr Wilson also updated the meeting on the latest information regarding the A529 dfT Road Safety Fund project including the consultation proposals for Speed Pads and Street lights within the village. 

In addition, there was an update on the temporary traffic lights situated at the crash site between Adderley and Audlem.  Since the meeting there has been a further update which has been sent from Shropshire Council.

“An options report was recently assessed by Senior Managers in respect of the crash site and a potential preferred option has been identified. Officers are due to meet during the week commencing 25th April to identify the resource requirements, the steps that need to be taken and a timeframe for completion.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to release any details of the proposed options at this stage and information release will be very much governed by the Legal advice provided. However, please rest assured that the team have Senior Management approval to proceed in bringing the matter to a conclusion and we will endeavour to do so as quickly as possible.

As soon as we are able to provide detailed information, we will be happy to do so but that will depend on any agreement reached with a number of parties.”

Message from Peter Rabbit

We’ve had a message from Peter Rabbit to say that he and his friends have spoken to lots of kind people around the village and they have agreed to put clues in their windows for the Easter Trail which starts this Thursday.  

All you have to do is pick up the checklist from the Book Shelter in the village where Peter will be waiting to say hello, or if you prefer, download a copy of it here, and off you go.  Remember there are letters on some of the clues and if you collect them all it will spell a word.  Post your completed form in the postbox on the Green and if you are right Peter has said he will get a small prize to you!   How good is that?
