About us

Situated approximately 7 miles south west of Shrewsbury town centre and located off and alongside the main A49 trunk road we are a thriving rural community. The area is enjoyed by a population of approximately 1957 people spread over 3029 hectares of land with 857 dwellings (all figures correct as of 2011 census).

The Parish Wards are represented by Village Councillors who make up the 12 councillors of the Parish Council who meet usually on the 1st Tuesday of each month to discuss and act upon parish business for the overall benefit of the community of the parish, ensuring the voice and aspirations of local people are heard. This involves working with and lobbying local government organisations and agencies on which our community depend up on to provide adequate services which enhance quality of life. As a result the Parish Council works closely with its Shropshire Councillor.
