    My next advice surgery is at Much Wenlock Museum on Saturday 12th March. It runs from 10:30am until 12:00, and I hope to be joined by a Much Wenlock Town Councillor and a representative of the police. As ever, if any local resident has a problem that they think I can help with, they can…

  • Roadworks in Sheinton Street

    As I predicted a few weeks ago, the A4169 Sheinton Street, near Station Road, had to be closed for urgent sewer replacement works.

The signage element of the scheme was as a result of the fatal road accident which occurred in 2012. The signage works are still to be carried out this spring, using temporary traffic signals.

  • Road works

    A cause of considerable concern to local residents is the infrastructure supporting our communities. Drainage, energy, communications and roads are high priorities. The past few months have seen much disruption on the roads. In some cases it has been necessary to repair the surface. In other cases, underground repairs are required. Bourton Road in Much…
