Flowers in the Village

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.

Parish Council Provides New Benches in the Village

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)

The Speed Checker is Back

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:

Dog Poo! Getting to the bottom of it.

At last night’s Parish Council it was Dog Poo (again) that took up some of the agenda. The vast majority of dog owners in Adderley are responsible owners. In fact it would seem that the vast majority of dog owners who visit Adderley are also responsible owners. There is always the exception and it’s those people to whom we are addressing our efforts.

On the way home from the meeting last night one of the councillors spotted this recent addition to the footpath outside the bowling club:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is an informative piece on Pets4Homes with some ideas but it does highlight the fact that leaving your dog’s poo in the street is actually illegal.
