Village News 2nd July 2020

• This weekend will see the reopening of the village bars and eateries. The Bank Coffeehouse will open up again Tuesday to Sunday with tables outside and in, the British Legion Club will be open every day with breakfast service at the weekend, the Crown will be bar only but will continue its takeaway service Friday and Saturday evenings, and the William IV and George and Dragon will open without food for the time being.

The Cricket Club will open the pavilion bar to members only from 9th July on limited days and cricket is expected to resume on the 11th, although this is yet to be confirmed. If you are not already a member you can join as a social member or player for £10, just go to the website. You will not be admitted otherwise.

Every establishment will be trying to ensure the safety of their customers and our community so please read and adhere to all signage.

• The Alrewas Coronovirus Help Team continues to be on hand to support people in need, particularly those still having to self isolate, and meals will continue to be delivered to people living on their own who are isolating until the end of July. However the food bank, currently located at the Bank Coffeehouse, will wind down this week. This is being replaced with a food voucher scheme run by Alrewas and Fradley Charities for those who could still benefit from extra food and for anyone whose circumstances have recently changed due to the economic effects of the pandemic and may require additional help. If you know of anyone who may be in need or if you yourself wish to apply please email info@alrewasandfradleycharities.org.uk

The Charities has been funding the food distribution throughout lockdown and has recently awarded £500 to Bags2Queens to help them purchase materials for the excellent work they are doing.

•  Last weekend should have been Alrewas Open Gardens and Alrewas Knit Wits did us proud with a fabulous display at the War Memorial. Instead of opening their gardens many sent in photos and you can view these on Facebook at Alrewas Open Gardens 2020.

• Michael Fabricant has joined the Parish Council and hundreds of residents in sending in objections to the planning application for a large concrete factory at Orgreave that will cause huge disruption to Alrewas and surrounds. He says “I strongly object to this planning application on numerous grounds, but in particular on the grounds that no gravel extraction should be undertaken north of the A38 dual carriageway.  This has long been accepted as a general principle. The construction of a concrete works in the area is also completely unacceptable.  Justifying it as being needed by HS2 is a completely spurious reason and should be disregarded by the planning committee. I also very much share the concerns of Alrewas Parish Council and I have cited some of their objections in my communication with the County Council too”

Residents now have until August to email their objections to planning@staffordshire.gov.uk.
