Local Services

Welcome to our directory of local services. In these sections you will find names and contact details of a variety of shops, tradesmen, places to stay and other businesses as well as public services like our doctors’ surgery and the local school.

If you would like your local business or service to be listed in this directory, please email the web team via this contact page. Listings are free of charge and can include links to your own website and email address. If your business does not fit into one of the existing categories, we will create a new one! (Please remember to update us if any of your details change.)

It is important to note that our Local Services directory is not for ‘advertisements’ but we are are happy to include in it any business within the local area which offers a service to residents of Hodnet and the surrounding villages. To this end we have a set of criteria to help us decide if a business qualifies. If contacting us to request inclusion in the directory, please provide us with relevant information about your business. These are the type of questions we are interested in having answers to:

  • Exactly where is the business based?
  • Do you have your a shop or similar outlet within the Hodnet boundary?
  • If not, do you regularly undertake work within the Hodnet Parish Council’s area?

Generally, we are interested in listing services which come to the people of Hodnet or are very easily accessed by those who live here. We do not want to include businesses based in places like Market Drayton, Wem, Whitchurch, Telford, Shrewsbury, etc. which require people to travel to them – e.g. Supermarkets in Drayton will not be listed!

If the webteam considers that your business meets our criteria it will be placed free of charge on a suitable page in the directory with the basic details provided for all entries. These are:

  • Business Name
  • Business Type
  • Phone Number(s)
  • Website
  • Email

It will be appreciated if you could supply these in your reply along with all the other information you think is relevant.

The webteam will then consider your request in the light of our criteria. If we agree that it meets the requirements we will add the business/service to the directory. Of course, because this is a free of charge services, the decision of the webteam will be final.

We have been asked on several occasions about placing advertisements in the Parish Magazine. This is prepared and distributed by the Parish Church, St. Luke’s, and not by the Civil Parish Council. To contact St. Luke’s about placing an advert in their printed magazine please use this form.
