It’s great to see the new footpaths in use. The construction was completed quickly and proficiently, problems dealt with swiftly, and we were very impressed with Core Contractors overall. Full funding has been received from Shropshire Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy fund, which comes from developers’ contributions. The Parish Council expressed particular thanks to Councillors Barry Bell and John Harrison for their work on getting this project to completion.

The working group on Older Children’s Play Facilities presented their report at the Parish Council meeting on 8th November. The group, which had members of all ages involved, did a fantastic job. Their research was very thorough and gave us a real picture of what young people want, and how (and where) that might be achieved. The Parish Council accepted the working group’s recommendations and will be moving forward on this project. You can view the working group’s report on the Meetings page of this website.

I’m afraid we have no further news to bring you on the installation of the traffic lights at the crossing. The funding has been approved by Shropshire Council but the work has been subject to repeated delays. The Parish Council continues to lobby for this work to be completed, but we have so far been unable to get a date for commencement.

You may see works starting across Hadnall over the coming weeks to connect a network of footpaths in and around the village. This is a project that started nearly 2 years ago with the completion of the first phase . Phase 2 and 3 of the plans have been delayed for some time, predominantly due to the pandemic. There has been an immense amount of work gone on behind the scenes by the Parish Council in conjunction with a number of bodies including local landowners, Historic England and Shropshire Council. In addition, considerable work has gone into grant applications securing 100% of the costs for this work from outside of the village funds.

The contractors are a company called Core Landscape contractors and they will be using the area behind the church for storing some of the materials whilst on site. Thanks to the Church for agreeing to this. As much as is possible the contractors will maintain existing routes whilst carrying out the work. You will find further details of the project in a document listed at the bottom of this page. 

Apologies for any short-lived disruption during the construction phase which is expected to take 7- 10 days to complete. Please contact the Parish Clerk if you have any questions or experience any issues during this time. We will post any updates on this website. We hope residents and visitors to the village continue to benefit from this project over future years. Look out for some innovative night-time features that we are trialling for potential future use.

RAF Shawbury has now received new stock of hi viz kit, in support of the Be Seen, Be Safer horse rider safety campaign. RAF Shawbury launched its Be Seen, Be Safer horse rider awareness campaign, in association with The British Horse Society in April 2015.  So far, the base has distributed a huge amount of free high visibility clothing to riders within Low Flying Area 9, which includes Shropshire and the borders of adjacent counties.

The aim of the campaign is to promote the wearing of high visibility clothing by riders so that they are more visible and can therefore be seen earlier by our helicopter aircrew. In addition, helicopter aircrew, based at RAF Shawbury, are trained to spot riders earlier and then take action to minimise disturbance whenever possible. 

If you would like a free set of hi viz (tabard, hatband and quarter -sheet) please visit their website: Flying Info | RAF Shawbury | Royal Air Force (
