• At the June Parish Council meeting it was agreed that the name of the new road at the Bagnalls Lock development site would be Taylor in memory of two village boys from the same family who died at a very young age. Brett Taylor was laid to rest May 1987 aged 18 and Craig Taylor December 1995 aged 17. The family lived at Wellfield Road and both boys are buried at All Saint’s Church.

John Walton from the Alrewas Residents Group reported on further actions that he had initiated since the last meeting relating to the traffic issues likely to be caused by the development of land north of Dark Lane. This included referring the Temporary No Waiting Order on Exchange Road to the Ombudsman as no consultation had taken place before it was imposed and investigation into the fencing erected by the developers as it encloses an area much larger than the agreed site.

It was agreed to replace the damaged matting under the cross scales on Walkfield play area and talks are still taking place with Wicksteed to repair the basket swing seat as soon as possible

• Rob and Kate Horton wish to thank everyone who supported their coffee morning last week which raised £1000 for the NSPCC.

Alrewas & Fradley Charities has recently donated £2000 to a young disabled resident of the village to purchase mobility equipment. A donation was also given to Alfie’s Appeal to fund an infra red vein finder for the children’s ward at Queen’s Hospital Burton which has been channelled through the Charity. The item has been ordered and is expected soon. The next fundraising events are the Annual Quiz at Alrewas Cricket Club on Friday 20th September and a Barn Dance at Fradley Village Hall on Friday 27th September. All are welcome
