Protecting our rural heritage

This picture from Iain Wilson on his walk from Adderley to Market Drayton gives us a good view of the sort of heritage and rural location that our 3 parishes contain, and whilst not stopping all development, this is the kind of thing that the Neighbourhood Plan can be used to protect.

If anyone has any other photographs from any of the 3 parishes that they do not mind being used on this website, please forward them.

Norton-in-Hales Coffee Morning

Norton-in-Hales held their coffee morning on February 26th, and although not as well attended as the Moreton Say event, about 15 people attended and the plan was discussed, urging people to get involved and fill in a survey.

The next Norton-in-Hales event is the quiz night on Tuesday March 19th, which will also involve a presentation on the Neighbourhood Plan. Please come along and get involved.

Adderley Coffee Morning

Following on from the highly successful Moreton Say Coffee Morning the Adderley monthly get together proved to be a less fruitful ground for engaging new people. We did get to update members of the village coffee morning group and we met three lots of new people who have gone away to fill in our questionnaire.

Must say thank you to Phil and Carol Gadd who were our hosts at the village hall and kept us supplied with coffee and added more cakes to the ones supplied by Jane.

It was clear that rural broadband is still an issue for some areas in the Parish  and while this is something that the Neighbourhood Plan cannot address directly we have passed on the enquiry to see if there is somebody who can help.

Next Adderley event is the open forum on Wednesday March 13th at Adderley Village Hall.

Moreton Say Coffee Morning


Over 20 residents of Moreton Say came along for a presentation on the Neighbourhood Plan on the morning of February 21st. The cakes and coffee were good too! It was a really useful event, which threw up some interesting questions, and marked the start of the data gathering over the 3 parishes. Don’t forget, that there is another ‘open forum’ event in Moreton Say Village Hall on Tuesday 12th March at 7:30 p.m., and if you cannot make that one but are still interested in finding out more, please have a look at the events in the other parishes. You are more than welcome to attend one of those, and the dates and times can be found in the events on the right of this page. Failing that, contact any of the Steering Group members and we can give you more information.

Have your say

The Steering Group members in each parish have organised events at which you can find out more about the Neighbourhood Plan and how it affects you. You can have your say on the day, or fill in a small questionnaire online HERE. Have a look at the meeting dates on the right hand side of this page for the meetings most appropriate to you. We have created events both during the day and the evening so that hopefully everyone will have an opportunity to attend.

If the meetings in your parish are not convenient, have a look at the dates in the other 2 parishes. This process is for a single Neighbourhood Plan to cover all 3 parishes, so any meeting can be relevant to you.

Moreton Say Event Invitations

For those living in Moreton Say Parish, you should find an envelope dropping on your doormat over the next few days, with the dates of the daytime and evening Neighbourhood Plan events planned for the Clive Hall.

Other arrangements have been made to send out this information for Adderley and Norton-in-Hales.

If you do not receive this information, please contact one of the representatives for your parish on the Contacts Page.
