    Dear All

    When Ofsted revisited at the end of term it was really the last thing staff needed. But I am delighted to say that the outcome has made it all worth it!

    The school was judged to be Good with Outstanding features. A really excellent result. Parents had a letter home on the last day at school.

    Congratulations to staff, children and parents. Well done.

    Dear All

    Thank you very much for the excellent turn out the other night I was really delighted to see you all and even more delighted with your passion to get your roads around Priest Weston put in working order after all these months. You put your case very well indeed.

    It was also good that Steve Brown from Shropshire Council could attend to listen to your concerns, ideas and more besides! Such a pity the Portfolio Holder was unable to hear your anger.

    Sorry about the delay on the report back on road safety through Marton. My daughter is getting married on Saturday and it has somewhat delayed my response. Monday should see my life getting back to normal!

    We have lost the Traffic highways engineer and the road signage officer. This work will now be - hopefully undertaken by a contractor called WSP. This has also held actions up. I have now asked for a meeting with them to progress much of this.

    Dear All

    The closures and major works to the Leigh road have not been forgotten. They will be happening as soon as the closure can be permitted. There is so much top dressing going on that many of the roads around this important link road that it could not be timetabled for the end of June/ July.

    I had a meeting yesterday where I was assured that the money is still in the budget and this will be happening. I should have more information in the next couple of weeks.

    Dear All

    The top dressing and the removal of the white lines for over a week went from bad to worse when the white lining gang arrived last Monday. They just estimated where to put them!!! AND then got it wrong. On Wednesday they returned but did not have a plan or measurements. It was decided that rather than get it wrong again we would get a better measured map in place.

    Dear All

    I am told that the Roadmaster road repair vehichle will be in the Priest Weston area in the week on 16th - tomorrow . please let me know if this is the case.

    I am unsure as to whether it will be able to deal with this huge sunken hole in Chirbury Lane. No-one has confirmed or denied it - as yet.

    Shropshire Councillors in the west of the County have strongly criticised Shropshire Council for the way it deals with claims from local residents who have had their cars damaged by potholes.

    Jonny Keeley, Councillor for Bishops Castle Division, said "As if the number and severity of potholes in our part of the world isn't bad enough the treatment received by residents who claim for damage inflicted on their vehicles is truly dire. Irrespective of how much evidence they have to prove their case the treatment they receive from the solicitors acting on behalf of the Council's insurers is dismissive if not downright rude. This is even worse when you look at the variable standard of the repairs - some brilliant, others left untouched and some destined just to need repair again within a week or so. "

    Severn trent will now be doing the repairs at night this Thursday - 14th June. 7pm - 6am. If at all possible it will open early.

    This is for repair to a pipe running underground close to the bridge. The burst is undermining the bridge and we don't want that damaged!!!!

    Think of the diversions and it length of time that would take to fix!
