• The Alrewas Agricultural and Horticultural Society Show Committee is extremely pleased to announce this year’s show will be held on Saturday 17th July. This exciting decision has been made following careful consideration of current government guidance with regards to the roadmap out of lockdown.  The committee will continue to monitor the latest advice and ensure they are able to put on a great show that is above all safe for visitors and volunteers. 

With new and old exhibitors, traders and visitors it will be a fantastic family day out. This year marks the 140th Alrewas Show and so they will be encouraging more people to visit this year and to take part in the competitions and exhibitions.  Visit  www.alrewasshow.co.uk  or the Facebook page for all the information on the Show.

Unfortunately our two other big community events, Alrewas Open Gardens and the Alrewas Arts Festival, will not go ahead this year due to loss of planning time, but the Arts Festival Committee will be organising some safe and fun events during the summer to replace the week long Festival due to have taken place at the end of August.

• With outdoor sport recommencing on 29th March, Alrewas Cricket Club has compiled the biggest programme of Junior Cricket in the Club's 142 year history which will commence after Easter weekend. Full details of all Junior age group teams, managers, training, etc are on the website

The clubhouse bar will open in line with other hospitality venues, hopefully in April, in adherence with government guidelines and we look forward to a full cricket season.

• The 1st Alrewas Beaver Scouts is looking for a volunteer leader to join the team on Tuesdays. You will be on hand to supervise activities, share skills and keep everyone safe. It's a very rewarding and enjoyable role open to anyone with enthusiasm.

• Stepping Stones have a Bag2School collection booked on 17th March and would be grateful for your support, the more bags they get the more money they raise. If you have any spare clothes, handbags, belts, scarves, towels, bedding, paired shoes, hats, soft toys or curtains getting in the way, please bring them to the Village Hall by 9am on the morning of March 17th in any bags you have at home.

• County lines is an increasingly common way of supplying drugs, often involving vulnerable young people as couriers and suppliers and is very prevalent in this area at the moment. Staffordshire Police are committed to cracking down on this and urge residents that have any concerns to contact Crimestoppers anonymously by ringing 0800 555 111 or the Police on 101. If any parents are worried their children may be involved there is advice on spotting the signs and other information at www.staffordshire.police.uk/countylines
