Good evening all. With reference to the roadworks on Elmley Rd; despite being told that access to frontages will be allowed; we have been notified that it is possible that the road will actually be closed tomorrow for one day. We have contacted the contract manager for verification but have not received an answer yet. We apologise for not being able to be more definite about this, but thought you should be aware of the possibility that the road may be closed so that you can allow more time for any travel in the morning. Amey Contractors’ customer liaison contact is Leon on 07557 394169. Thank you all for your understanding.
We have received notification that there will be a road closure on Elmley Rd, as detailed on the attached notice, for a period of up to five days between 15th and 26th April (school holidays). This is for sewerage works to take place at the Willow Cottage Site. Access to frontages will be maintained. If you have any queries, please call the Worcestershire Highways and Transport Contact Centre on 01905 765765. Thank you.

Good afternoon everyone. Some of you may already know that a house near the Cross was burgled yesterday afternoon. This happened mid afternoon, a busy time of the day in the village. A dark coloured vehicle parked on the drive and forced entry at the rear of the house. The house was left in a state of disorder. It is not yet known what was stolen. The owner was not present at the time. A quad bike was also stolen from another property in the village but was later recovered. Please be vigilant and report anything suspicious by calling 101, or in an emergency, 999. We will post further information as we receive it. Thank you.
Friday night saw the village hall packed with quizzers getting stuck into several very entertaining and often challenging rounds. Questions ranged from advertising slogans (e.g. ‘Think different’ Answer below!), to 80’s hits, spellings & definitions (TWO ‘nn’s in annihilation!) and US TV series. Not one but two picture rounds were provided (that was Ian Botham..really?!).
The quiz night was very well organised by Rhiannon Cyphus and Lucy Livesley (Friends of the School) together with a team helping on the bar and a very amusing pair of quizmasters, Dan White and Dave Beardsell.
An excellent profit of £800 was made and will be donated to the school for various projects.
Roll on the next quiz!
ps Answer: Apple!
