Hello – its me – Peter Rabbit, but Shhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone I was here.  Its not Easter yet and I shouldn’t really be about!

Just wanted to let you know that me and my friends had such a good time last Easter in Adderley that we thought we’d come back for some fun with you this year.   We’re doing you an Easter Trail with all the kind people around the village.  It should be fun, and there might, just might, be the odd prize if Benjamin hasn’t eaten all the chocolate by then.  Honestly, he is such a chocaholic!

Anyway, keep your eyes open, for more news about how to take part in the Easter trail over the next few days.  Oh, and remember – you didn’t see me. Ok? 

Update On The A529

Diversion Sign header

The Audlem website has posted an update on the works planned for the A529 from the Cheshire end starting at Audlem. The update is provided by Cllr Rachel Bailey.

“… I am pleased to report that finally investment of the Government Safer Roads monies will commence. However, in spite of continued lobbying, The Old Railway Bridge at Swanbach, is only ear marked for further investigative works.

A road closure has been booked for 5th-11th May.

During this time the culvert at Greys Bridge will be cleared, and further drainage investigation work will take place by the old railway bridge.
This may lead to a future programmed repair once the extent of the issues have been identified.
The Cheshire East element of the DfT Safer Roads funded scheme will also commence during this road closure.

Originally all works were delayed until the infamous Adderley Lights issue was resolved; I will update you once I know if these works signal progress on that matter as well!”

Free Food Hygiene Training Anyone?

As many of you know, its good practice to have a number of people who have taken their Food Hygiene Certificate Training when running events in a community.  Whether its in the village hall, church or out in the community, its always good to know that there is someone there who has done the training.  Its a while since we have updated ours in Adderley and we would like to offer FREE training to anyone interested.

If you are involved with the Church, Hall, Toddler Group, Heritage Group or Nice Place to Be Team, or if you would like to offer to be involved and feel this would be a good thing to have under your belt, please let us know.  We are able to offer up to 12 places using the Community Fund the village has accumulated.   The course will be online, is recognised by  Environmental Health  and takes about two hours, but you can complete this in your own time to suit your circumstances.  A certificate will be provided.    Deadline for booking: WEDNESDAY 13TH APRIL and course must be completed BY 20TH MAY.

To book your place just fill in the form below and we will get back to you with details.  

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend in Adderley

As you know the Queen’s Jubilee weekend has been confirmed for Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June, with celebrations happening all over the country.  Adderley will be no exception and already we have a number of special events lined up for you to enjoy.  

Friday 3rd June, BIG Breakfast – the Nice Place to Be Team are hosting a Big Breakfast in the Village Hall.  The perfect way to start the day when you are on holiday.  For a small charge to cover costs there will be a Full English, (with veggie/vegan options) and we hope you will amble down to join us and let us give you a real treat!   To be honest, we will leave the doors open so that the smell of bacon and sausages will drift across the village and your feet will bring you along!  We will need you to book though, (the thought of telling someone we have run out is more than we can bearBooking details to follow so watch this space!

A Free Fruit Tree! –  We are rather excited to be able to tell you that we are hoping to offer a limited number of fruit trees free to anyone who lives in the Parish of Adderley in support of the Queen’s Green Canopy campaign .   The trees will be distributed at The BIG BREAKFAST on Friday 3rd June.  So have a think, can you find a place for a fruit tree in your garden? We will be asking for numbers closer to the date; first come, first served

Saturday 4th June – There will be a Party on the Green at 4.00pm , with details to be confirmed by the Village Hall.  We are promised entertainment, Crazy Bowls, a bar,  a barbecue and a Bring and Share desserts table.  Tables and chairs to be provided and we will either be in the hall or out in the sunshine, depending on our glorious British weather.

Other Events:  It would be great to have an idea of anything else going on over the weekend.  Are you having a Street Party for example?   Let us advertise it on the website.  If you have any ideas for other events please let us know via – we are always up for more people putting forward suggestions and eager to help if we can!
