Fri 9th to Sun 11th May



Save Our Driving Centre!

It currently looks like the DVSA have utilised the RAAC problems at the Civic Centre as an excuse not to house the driving centre there.
Local MP Helen Morgan and others are campaigning against this decision.

See article from Whitchurch Herald
Shropshire Council rights of way have closed all the footpaths off Greenfoot lane from 22/06/23 for public safety reasons whilst work is carried out on the development in the area.

There is an alternative for the 1st path on the right 0233/122/ which goes through the cricket ground to the Hatton way. There are no alternatives given for the
other 5 rights of way, including the path that crosses the by-pass, part of our Belton bracer walk.

The closures will remain in place until July for some paths and December for others.
