Users of Glebeland Playing Field and nearby residents, please note the following:-

In the last few days there has been a flurry of notes exchanged which led to a zoom conference call yesterday afternoon attended by representatives of Shropshire Council Estates team, Cornovii Developments and Bayston Hill Parish Council. Cornovii, who are a wholly owned by Shropshire Council, hope to secure the contract to develop the site which has already received outline planning permission for 50 houses. Ahead of that contract being awarded and a detailed planning application being presented to Shropshire Council Planning Dept agreement on the land asset viability and valuation is now being worked on. Cornovii have engaged a specialist firm to undertake a Ground Investigations Survey involving 2 drilling rigs (not for oil !) that take core samples of the geological structure below. The company engaged to do the survey have offered a slot starting next week, Monday 18th January 2021 as a diary window opened due to a cancellation. Initially, in the first week, they will undertake drilling on the old school site and the following week move onto the playing field. There has been a clear request to operate in the safest manner and public access will be permitted, with the drilling rigs fenced off. The drilling will be carried out in daylight and there is some noise to contend with, we thank nearby residents and users of the Playing Fields for their forbearance. The ground area where the rigs have drilled will be properly restored. Additional information was also provided concerning likely timeline, the results of the survey above are expected in early March, then agreement on valuation between parties will be sought, then the Developer will be appointed and the full planning application over the site should be submitted before the year end. Construction work is likely to commence in the first half of 2022.

Make Sure You Are Stocking Up Over Christmas    and New Year

Make sure you are stocking up for all your health needs over the Christmas and New Year period, say health bosses at Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

With the festivities fast approaching, check that you have the essentials such as ibuprofen, paracetamol, antiseptic cream, plasters and indigestion treatment at home.

All of these are available to buy without a prescription at a small cost from a pharmacy, supermarket and other stores. Your pharmacist will also be able to give you free advice on minor conditions and over-the-counter treatments.

If you have a regular prescription, make sure you have enough to cover the festive period and you collect it in advance.

GP practices in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day Bank Holiday (Monday, 28 December) and New Year’s Day, but there are other services available.

For anyone who needs urgent medical help or advice they can call NHS 111 for free 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or they can access the service online at

A number of pharmacies will be open for limited hours, on a rota on Christmas Day, Boxing Day (Monday, 28 December), New Year’s Day and the weekends. You can also download the NHS App to check symptoms, book GP appointments during normal opening hours, and request repeat prescriptions.

Dr Julian Povey, Chair of Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG), said: “We want everyone to enjoy their Christmas and that’s why it is important that people think ahead and get in anything they may need to keep them healthy.

 “Your local pharmacist can offer you free health advice without the need of an appointment, or if you are feeling unwell and need urgent health advice call NHS 111 or visit

“Remember we can all help look after ourselves by stocking up on the essentials to treat minor ailments at home.”

Christmas Tree on The Parade
4th December 2020

A little distraction from our usual maintenance programme today.

Your Parish Council - 1st Tier Local Government, closest to the community it serves have listened. Your volunteer councillors and their employees have worked hard to bring you a Christmas Tree to mimic what took place in Trafalgar Square today - the lights were lit. It is not a gift from Oslo, Norway but many have given, Oswestry Christmas Tree Farm for smashing service and great value, Bayfield Vehicle Hire Shropshire Michael Money who laid on transport on Monday, the BaystonHill Jingleation team for recommending 4000 lights, Alan Roberts - Wizard with Electrics, and our Handyperson team, Roger/Rachael/Dave.

We hope the community gets a lift by this.
