The September 2012 Floods  .
Click here for photos of the flood.

GOOD NEWS - It is hoped that there will be a scheme to prevent any more flooding of the culvert starting in April? 2015 Preparations for the project continue - recent roadworks were part of this process! We believe the delays are due to some legal issues over land.

Do you feel threatened by the potential risk of having your house flooded?  Would you like a FREE assesment of risk from Shropshire Council?  If so click here for details.


Next meeting:Monday 11th January 2016. Members of the village are always welcome.  Near to the meeting time, agenda and minutes are posted in the two Parish Council Noticeboards (by the Message Tree and the Village Hall). They are then available through the village website via the Parish Council page (see left).  

As a result of the recent Parish Council meeting:
A public Meeting will be held on Monday 14th December to hear residents views about the siting of the Shropshire Way across the Church Field in the light of the new development.  The meeting will be at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.  Everyone is welcome to come and share their views.

The Church Coffee morning at the Village Hall raised a magnificent £791 on Thursday morning!

A very successfull evening was held on Saturday 21st November when the "Village Voices Choir" from Bayston Hill, conducted by Michael Jenkins, performed a selection of melodies followed by Christmas carols in which the audience participated, even if Christmas was still 5 weeks away.
Thanks to everyone who supported the event including those who provided refreshments and a grand total of £509.00 was raised for church funds.

 Village Hall Photo Competition
There will be a photograph competition held at an event in the Summer of 2016, for members of the village.  There will be three age groups - Under 12, under 17 and adult.  The main rules are that no photo which has won a prize in another competition may be entered.  There is no limit to the number of entries anyone can submit.  Judging will be by public vote at the event.  The winners will be published in the Hadnall & Astley News afterwards.  Details of prizes will be published later, along with submission details.
The title of the competition is Pictures of Nature.  This includes animals, birds, fish, amphibians, flowers, plants and trees.  You have several months to get your entries ready so GET SNAPPING NOW!!

Footpath News
The footpath from Wood Road to Haston has now been repaired, sign posted and cleared.  This will make a good circular walk from Hadnall.  If there are still any problems, please contact the Parish Council.
