Ashley Memorial Hall

February 16th, 2022|

Ashley Memorial Hall has a new Management Committee!

The new committee is excited about the possibilities for the hall and wants to hear your views, feedback and thoughts about what you want to see moving forward.  With this in mind, we would greatly welcome members of our community to contribute to a survey which will help inform plans and ultimately shape the future of our community Hall.

You can find the survey by visiting https://forms.office.com/pages/responsepage.aspx?id=V2N9w4vIa0K2gN-BZqhu10h3F1i4-C5BsfvM3R3x1NhUQjQ2NzdDWjZaNzhDTVNaN05OQ1NBNk1SUi4u

If you prefer to give your views face to face, the hall will be open to the community for drop in sessions with members of the committee as follows

Drop in sessions:

February 19th -15:00 – 16:00

March 8th – 19:30 – 20:30

March 12th 15:00 – 16:00

Committee

Anne McClean is Committee Chair, joined by Mark Sherwen as Vice Chair, Debra Wellard as Treasurer and Debbie Bennett as Secretary.   Officers come from a wide range of professions, bringing a wealth of experience to the management of the hall as a charitable organisation.

Anne McClean, Committee Chair says ‘We want to make the hall a vibrant, exciting and active place for the community to come together, with a wide array of things to do. We are really looking forward to hearing what people want and to try some new ideas for a programme of events.’

Mark Sherwen, Committee Vice Chair says “I have only moved to the area recently but I have volunteered to serve on the committee because I believe that Village Halls like Churches, Pubs and Post Offices are crucial to the health of a village community. It is incumbent on those people responsible for their management to respond to the needs and desires of the residents of the parish to maximise the use of the facility to the benefit of all concerned.  Like Anne, I am looking forward to hearing the views of the community”

A message from RAF Shawbury on the use of Drones

January 12th, 2022|

Received a new drone for Christmas? Fantastic! They are a great piece of amazing technology, but we need to share the air safely and responsibly by following the Civil Aviation Authority Drone and Model Aircraft Code.

Did you know that Point 3 of the Drone and Model Aircraft Code says “Always look and listen out for other aircraft that may be flying below 400ft, such as air ambulances, police helicopters, and low-flying military aircraft.”

Helicopters from No. 1 Flying Training School, based at RAF Shawbury, routinely fly down to 100ft in Shropshire and surrounding areas, well below the 400ft maximum for drones.

Help us to all stay safe by being extra vigilant when flying in Shropshire and surrounding areas, and if you can, bring a friend or family member to keep a lookout too.
