Dear Householder,

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to inform you of a number of upcoming exercises, which are to be, carried out at Oakland’s School on the evenings of:   

Wednesday the 18th of April 2018                                         


The planned exercises are to take place between the hours of 7pm-9pm, however you may see a build-up of fire service vehicles in the area from 5pm onwards.


The aim of the exercises being held, is to test the operational response of a number of crews, to a simulated fire involving a large and complex building, with a number of people unaccounted for.

To facilitate the exercise and to add an element of realism to the exercise, synthetic smoke is to be used to fill part of the building, please do not be alarmed if you see smoke coming from the building between the hours of 6pm-9pm, this will all be part of the exercise.

We do not envisage any inconvenience to local homeowners in the area, however we apologise in advance for any noise or disturbance that may occur during the exercise.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service prides its self on providing a first class fire and rescue capability to the people of Shropshire. To continue to provide this service it is vital that operational personnel have the opportunity to practice their skills at sites like the School.

If you have any questions for require more information, Contact Simon Griffiths 07816293258 or

I am writing to thank Bayston Hill Parish Council for its role in helping to launch the new Charter for Trees, Woods and People earlier this year. The Local Council Charter Branch network has surpassed all expectations, planting hundreds of Legacy Trees and collecting thousands of signatures. You have made a great contribution to strengthening the voice of the Tree Charter. If you have not done so already, you can now visit the new Tree Charter website and read the 10 Principles of the Tree Charter in their entirety. Each principle is accompanied by evidence, articles and calls to action. After Christmas we will be entering a new phase of the Tree Charter project. The Charter Branch network will be rejuvenated, with new projects and activities for local councils to get involved with. In addition, we are looking forward to the release of our local council Tree Charter toolkit early next year, which will translate the 10 Principles of the Tree Charter into tangible actions your council may take. The launch of the Tree Charter is just the beginning of an exciting new time for trees in the UK. By embracing the Tree Charter councils have placed themselves at the centre of the conversation about policy and practice regarding trees. By adopting and enacting the 10 Principles of the Tree Charter, councils will become a leading force for improving the relationship between trees and people in the United Kingdom. After Christmas, I will be leaving NALC. Please direct all future inquires to the treecharter@woodlandtrust.org.uk Best wishes, Joseph Palasz Like us on Facebook Follow us on twitter
