Parish Council Meeting 31st March 2022

The Parish Council Meeting will be held in the Lyon Hall, Hodnet on Thursday 31st March, commencing at 7.30pm.

Members of the public are very welcome to attend.

Heating Oil Thefts

The following is from Market Drayton Police Facebook page. Market Drayton’s PCSO Steve Robinson says:

“Following the recent spike in crude oil prices, the cost of heating oil has also increased. Reports have been received relating to thefts from tanks at residential properties and commercial premises, notably in rural locations.

“Things you might want to consider could be:

Implementation of a fuel management system with a key or code access and alarm features.

Try to ensure the tank is overlooked either with natural views or using physical surveillance such as CCTV or, better still, both.

Install anti-siphoning devices and lockable fuel caps.

Install motion sensor lights.”

In addition, sometimes its a good thing to be a nosey neighbour! If you see strange vehicles about, jot down number plates or take a photograph if it is safe to do so.

Mobile Police Station in Hodnet 14th March 2022

The Mobile Police Station will be in its usual place on Church Street tomorrow, Monday 14th March, from 11.15 – 12.15.

Do go along if you have any concerns; the more noise we make about things the more chance there is of something being done about them!

AR Richards Fuel Campaign

We are currently offering our Head Office as a drop off point for donations to be taken to Poland to support Ukraine. The surrounding community have been amazing with their donations and our staff are currently sorting through donated items such as clothes, bedding, toiletries, toys, shoes and first aid items. We have our Artic curtain sider due for dispatch early next week which will require fuel, any donations for this would be greatly received. All funds raised will be for fuel with any remaining amount being used to purchase items for Ukraine.

We have the 2000-mile round trip to fund and we have set up the following Just Giving page:
