Please note NEW Parish Council meeting Date:  now TUESDAY 6th SEPTEMBER

Ride and Stride: Saturday 10th September

This year's Ride and Stride also falls on Saturday 10th. The aim is for sponsored people to Ride (bicycle, horse) or walk to as many churches as possible between 10 am and 6 pm! There are stewards at most churches involved to sign riders and striders in, confirming their visit.

This year we have Vicar Rob and Team Pie (Phil Price and friends) who have bravely offered to participate and we are looking for sponsors for them, please. Half the monies raised go to our lovely church and half to the Shropshire Historic Churches Trust who help churches with grants, etc. and who are the organisers of the event. Rob and Phil have their own sponsor forms, and one will be left in church. You can also donate on line to 'Just Giving', which is a safe and secure site to donate to. The site address is www.justgiving.com/judi-pridding. For more information contact Judi on 210436.

Please support these worthwhile causes and sponsor our participants.

Community Led Plan - deciding the future of Hadnall.  Please read this document: It is very important that everyone in the village understands what needs to be done.
Following on from the four information meetings held over the past few weeks,  it is now time to form an action committee of people from the community who are willing to decide the next phase of the plan.  If you would like to volunteer for this committee, please e-mail clp@hadnall.org.uk or phone 210873 and leave your details.  A meeting will be set up in September to start the committee's work.

Shropshire Way Main Route Consultation Survey

The Shropshire Way was devised by Ramblers in 1980 providing a long distance path of 140 miles through the best of Shropshire’s beautiful countryside.  Some 20 years later the original route was upgraded by Shropshire Council to promote tourism. Subsequently it has been expanded to provide more links to market towns and more opportunities for shorter circular walks.

Whilst this was well received at the time, it has become evident that the web of routes that are now part of the Shropshire Way cause some confusion on the ground. This means that there is no defined route that a long distance walker could complete and say they have walked the Shropshire Way.

We would like to know your views about a proposed ‘Shropshire Way Main Route’ and the line it should take.  Please follow the link below to access a short survey to give us your opinion, the 4 routes are in pdf form on the proposal page and clicking on “How to get involved” will access the survey.


Road Works in Hadnall

ROAD CLOSURE: Station Road, Hadnall

Date and duration: 12th September 2016 for 5 days

Purpose: Open cut 6m in carriageway to install mains connection valve, washout, pressure test and chlorinate

Utility: Severn Trent Water

We are hearing that there will be a major project by Severn Trent Water Company on the A49 from August to November involving a lot of traffic control.  This work will be in addition to the work on the culvert which will take place from October to March.  Apparently there will be a public meeting held by Severn Trent at some point.  The latest news seen indicates it will be the stretch up Hadnall bank as far as the other side of Upper Battlefield. Many of you may have received notification.
