    Shropshire's roads contractors strike again!.

    The road between Snailbeach and Stiperstones was closed with very little warning recently for patching. Having got a little warning, I spoke to KIER and agreed that they would delay the work for one day so that proper diversion/warning signs could be put in place. Guess what no signs, more serious hassle for residents!

    I have been trying to arrange meetings with a road safety officer for weeks following accidents in both Chirbury and Marton. Imagine my shock when I was initially told that we did not warrant a meeting as we had no accidents! Now we have had a lorry off the road outside Chirbury (avoiding a car on the wrong side of the road!) and a head on collision near to the Folly Junction. The Parish Clerk, Maureen Jenkins and myself are pressing for this meeting to be held urgently.

    Dear All

    Shropshire Council has decided to 'restructure' Highways.

    We all knew that was to happen but not when or how! It actually occured on 1st June and no one told Worthen with Shelve or Chirbury with Brompton Parish Council that we had been 'moved' into Central Division. So now we have unknown officers who do not know our area at all in charge. Wow all that learning and explaining to do….. there are now ongoing discussions about this. It is all a mess and things are still not getting done. If anything its worse. I will keep you updated.

    Heather was interviewed today by BBC TV for their Midlands Today Programme and Radio Shropshire about the cuts to bus services threatened by Conservative run Shropshire Council.

    Heather said"We have seen our rural bus network seriously pared back over the years. Further cuts would severely impair the ability some of the most vulnerable in society to access key services such as health care in our towns".
