Bayston Hill Parish Council members were delighted today to plant the first of our contributions to The Queens Green Canopy initiative. You can see more about this project to celebrate 70 glorious years of the reign of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth here 

The tree and plaque were donated to us by Shropshire Council and can be seen in the orchard of the Sensory Gardens, Lythwood Sports Complex.

Thank you to Evie and Lucas, pupils from Oak Meadow School who helped to plant the tree. Thank you also to Rev Hubbard of Christ Church for sharing a prayer with us.

Dear all, 

I was hoping you might kindly be able to help promote Doorstep Carols (Dec 15th, 6pm) in Shropshire?

If you could share our flyer (attached) on parish social media feeds and noticeboards and encourage community group uptake, I would be very grateful. Last year's event proved that this has huge power to strengthen communities. 


The event started in Shrewsbury but has gone national - the same set list of carols will be played on BBC Local Radio across the UK on December 15th at 6pm for one hour. The idea is that neighbourhoods should come together and sing or play along. There are very easy parts for instruments too - all music and words is free online at


People are invited to donate to our partner charities listed on the website, or use the event to raise money for local causes - or just sing along with their neighbours! 


We have a huge number of hub events going on around the country (see the attached press release) but it'd be great to ensure widespread uptake here in Shropshire, where it began.


Any sharing on social media, or perhaps linking with your own community organisations/pubs, would be much appreciated! Putting it up on your own personal feeds to tell friends about it will also help a huge amount! Everything we all do encourages more people to sing. 


There are some great resources to download and share on social media on this page of our website:


This is all about collaboration - everyone is welcome to 'own' this event and make of it what they will!


Many thanks,









Katy Rink
