Chairman: Councillor Marius D Coulon TD, MCGI, MIOD, MCMI, MBICSc 


On Wednesday 17th December 2015 the Adderley Parish Council held its most recent meeting.

This was preceded by a photo shoot of the Councillors and Clerk for Shropshire Council to launch the new Fibre Optic Broad Band that went live in Adderley on Thursday 18th December 2015.

After the photographs they got down to business and the first subject was that of broadband and the announcement, applauded by all, that Adderley would go live with fibre optics the next morning, this being after years of badgering the Council and maintaining pressure on the suppliers, it was agreed that this was a resounding success and thanked Shropshire Council for taking up our case.

Discussion was then held on the “Neighbourhood Watch Scheme” and that despite everyone having had a leaflet delivered to their door and the offer from the Parish Council to pay for the first two years membership, only 10 people had actually signed up. It was decided to further promote it on the Village web site and hope more sign up over Christmas.

Concerns were then discussed with regard to the Children’s playground surface and the clerk was asked to chase “Wicksteads” for their report so that the situation could be resolved and the surface repaired.

The Parish Plan was discussed and was agreed, this will now be published and put onto the web site for all to see. Cllrs Tydeman and Cornwall were thanked for their work on this.

We were pleased to confirm that the new village website was up and running at “” and are looking to stakeholders for content for their various pages.

It was agreed that we need to get three quotes for the hedge/grass cutting in the village as this had not been undertaken for a number of years, the Clerk will approach a number of companies to get these and a decision with regard to a supplier will be made at the next meeting.

It was requested that the Clerk contact The Highways Department with regard to the state of the Norton in Hales road and the fact that the edges needed to be repaired as cars are now in fear of getting stuck if they leave the road onto the verge.

A number of invoices were agreed and paid and it was agreed to keep the size of next year’s Precept the same as this years.

Cllr Tydeman then asked that two items be added to next meeting’s Agenda. These being the purchase of a new fuel tank for the Village Hall as the old one needs to be moved and no longer complies with present legislation.  Also the purchase of a defibrillator and the training of some staff on it.

This concluded the meeting. The Chairman wished all councillors a Happy Christmas and the meeting ended.

Yes! It’s Here – and we don’t mean Christmas!

Superfast Broadband arrives in Adderley

Just in time for Christmas we have heard the news today that cabinet 7 has finally gone live. The cabinet serves 110 premises in the village which means that from Monday you can contact your ISP and ask to be upgraded to Superfast Broadband.

It’s important to remember that if you are an existing DSL broadband customer then an upgrade will not just happen: you have to request it. Not all ISPs will be able to supply the new service from day 1 but you need to ask the question.

How fast is superfast? Well that all depends on how far you are from the green box but up to 500 meters away you should get the very best service available. After that the highest speed will drop roughly every 500 meters but even people who are 2.5 kilometres away from the cabinet should get a service, which means people who haven’t had a service before.

So after eight years of coaxing, cajoling and complaining finally Adderley village joins the twenty first century. Let’s make the most of it.

Neighbourhood Watch

Adderley now has a community Neighbourhood Watch scheme. The hope is that as many people as possible will sign up to the scheme which is being coordinated by the Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator in Woore. Apart from getting the benefit of shared information and intelligence it is possible for member households to get a reduction in their Home Insurance with some insurance companies.
