In July we installed the speed checker on Green Bank in response to more concerns from Residents about the speed of vehicles travelling towards the A529. we now have the analysis from the two weeks in which the checker was in place.
The speed results for Green Bank 7th July – 18th July 2017:
- 373 vehicles recorded of which 10.86%, 40 vehicles, travelled at more than 30 mph.
- Of these 40 vehicles only 8 were travelling in excess over 35 mph of which the worst was 51 mph Tuesday 18th July between 7 and 8 am.
What next? There is a meeting with Shropshire Council to discuss road safety on the A529 on the 29th/30th August which members of the Parish Council will attend. The A529 between Market Drayton and Audlem has been identified as one of the top 50 roads in the country with the highest risk of being killed or seriously injured. We will take the information from the speed checker on Green Bank and the A529 to the meeting with us.
Despite the best efforts of Keep Britain Tidy’s Dog Poo Fairy and as much publicity as we can muster the calling cards of “Man’s Best Friend” keep appearing on our kerbsides and verges.
What next? we’re going to start spraying! We have some environmentally friendly, brightly coloured paint and we’re going to highlight the indiscretions so that the odd one or two dog owners who still believe in dog poo fairies can spot the omission the next time around and take a minute to clear them away.
Remember it is an offence to let your dog foul public spaces.
One way or another the proposals from Shropshire Council affect everybody. This is a fundamental change to the way in which parking charges are levied across the County. This affects when you can be charged to park, when you can be charged and how much you can be charged. It is worth making your views heard.

The West Mercia Fire Governance Consultation may not be the most appealing title BUT this proposal to merge the governance of the fire services is attracting some strong views from across the West Mercia region. If you do have an opinion you need to make it count by responding to this consultation.

Every village has its unsung heroes and Adderley is no exception. Our thanks, once again, go to Barry Hales for the lovely flowers he provides and maintains around the village. It makes Adderley the place it is and we should applaud, loudly, this amazing contribution to village life.
Did you know that the playground is unbelievably well used by children in the village? Just wander by at the end of the school day and you will see parents and children having fun, and that’s the way it should be. For a while now the benches in the play area have been is an increasingly sorry state so we are pleased to have been in a position to provide new benches in this well used facility.
In addition, following requests from the parishioners we have been able to provide a further bench in the old bus shelter at the junction of Green Bank and Station Road. The steady climb up to this point is challenging for some of our respected older residents and it’s a pleasure to be able to provide a point of rest in the shelter (despite the lack of buses)
People are often surprised by this BUT the Parish Council does not have the power to impose speed restrictions OR to initiate penalties for speed infringements. Whodathunkit!
BUT we can reflect the concerns of residents to the powers that be. To this end we have managed to secure the use of the speed checker again in order to remind wayward motorists that it’s a 30 mile per hour zone on Green Bank AND to collect data on the number of infringements. This we can use to make our case for some official enforcement.
So keep your eyes open, watch your speed and let’s see what the speed checker says:
