Thanks to Ali and the team at Hunter Lloyd we have a new LED light strip on the step off the patio to keep you safe. A lantern light in the car park has also been installed.

Huge thanks to Wem Rural Parish Council for their grant to help us finish off the car park. We are so grateful for their support of Edstaston Village Hall. 

And to our team of car park makers - Trev, Neale, Derek, Bev and Liz - what a brilliant job! THANK YOU.

APRIL 2023 - CAR PARK

It's taken a huge amount of discussion and consultation to find the best way to move forward on what has turned out to be a much bigger job than previously thought!

If you’ve been to Edstaston Village Hall or just driven past you will have seen that work is progressing on the car park with construction of a retaining wall and a safety fence by local builders KS Sheridan. The wall was backfilled using amazing girl power (Elaine, Liz, Anna and Sandra and Bev)

Next steps will be to use the existing sleepers around the edge to retain the surface planings, but before that drainage will need to be dug, levels sorted, stabilising weedproof membrane laid…. It sometimes seems endless!

We have applied for a grant from Wem Rural Parish Council to finish off the car park...watch this space

FURTHER PROGRESS - THE "CROQUET LAWN" 
After all the planning and excitement of the Edstaston Village Hall relaunch party on Sunday 18th June, there was still work to be done to get the hall, and particularly the outside space, ready to be fully used by the community.
On July 1st, after much raking and rolling, grass seed (supplied by Spunhill Ltd) was finally sown by willing volunteers....and then the great heat of the summer arrived! Through careful watering and daily monitoring the grass (and weeds!) began to grow until the weeds were actually sheltering the new grass from the fierce sun.By the end of July the "croquet lawn" as it is now known was ready for its first strim. 
And look at it now! Huge thanks to all the Vernon family for their ongoing care with regular mowing and strimming with their own equipment. We would like to recruit volunteers for a rota of grass mowing and hope to have our own lawnmower in the near future.
