Parish Tidy Up – Sunday 15 April 2018

On Sunday 15 April 2018, a group of 8 parishioners met at the Village Hall to collect equipment (black bags, gloves, litter ‘pickers’ and visibility jackets) for the seasonal litter pick.

Each was allocated a section of road and set off to walk their section. There was a considerable amount of litter on the road from Six Ashes towards Cleobury, but even the minor roads generated the usual coffee cups, cans and water bottles.

This is just some the 19 bags of rubbish collected.

The next litter pick will be in the autumn.

Confirmed Modification of Definitive Map

The Shropshire Council (Footpath 44R Deletion and Addition, Parishes of Neen Savage and Cleobury Mortimer and Footpath Addition, Parish of Cleobury Mortimer) Modification Order 2013

Following a public inquiry into the above named public rights of way order  the Planning Inspectorate confirmed the order on 21 May 2018. In effect, there is now a public footpath from the Catherton Road along the drive to the Glen Caravan Park, and Footpath 44R recorded in error in Neen Savage Parish has been moved south of the stream to run through part of the caravan park, formerly the site of the old Cleobury Mortimer workhouse. The latter is not currently available on the ground and officers will need to negotiate a solution to resolve this.
