    The decision, finally, to move the Post Office into 'Connect' has been welcomed by all concerned. Not only has this kept a post office open in the village but has guaranteed the 'outreach' services to shops in Wentnor and Marton and the partnership with Worthen shop as well.

    New Post Office is scheduled to open on 28th July.

    ROADS
    A recent cash injection by the Government to Shropshire's roads budget is beginning a difference on some of the major roads through our area. Repair work that has been left undone for months, such as the main road by the Church in Marton and the Leigh Road, is now imminent. Some smaller roads which were in a dreadful state, such at Lower Wood are also being addressed. However, that still leaves a mass of potholes and degraded surfaces on minor roads that need doing. It is estimated that at our current rate of repair it will take 93 years to finish the job!

Work that has been left undone for months such as the main road through Marton and the Leigh Road is now imminent. Some smaller roads which were dreadful such at Lower Wood are also being addressed but it still leaves a mass of repairs on country roads that need doing. It is estimated that at our current rate of repair it will take 93 years to finish the job!"

    Cllr Roger Evans , Leader Of the Liberal Democrats on Shropshire Council, has demanded that Shropshire Council come clean about why it is failing to capitalise on a Government grant of £11.38m to extend broad band coverage across the County.

    Roger said "Huge swathes of the rural parts of our county are at a huge economic as well as social disadvantage through not having proper broadband connection. Small and medium size businesses across our area are at an increasing disadvantage because of this*.
