Notice Board


A new service has been launched to support people who are experiencing and suffering from bereavement and loss. The offer is open to any Shropshire resident who has been bereaved by either a recent death or previous loss.  The Bereavement Support Service is operated by Shropshire Council and community voluntary partners Samaritans, CRUSE, Severn Hospice and Crane Quality Counselling.  The service can be accessed through self-referral by calling 0345 678 9028.

The Bereavement Support Service is accompanied by the launch of a grief and bereavement during COVID19 booklet which provides a compassionate overview of coping with loss, feelings that may be experienced, supporting others who are grieving and links to help and information.  A secondary booklet provides a practical guide for the process following a death and what has changed due to the pandemic. Digital versions of these resources are available from the Shropshire Council website bereavement page at:

Best Dressed Window Competition – December 2019
The Town Council and The Clarion are pleased to announce that this years winner is Masquerade Fabrics 36 High Street.
All of the windows were of a very high standard which made for some lengthy discussion prior to the decision.
Thanks go to all those who made our town a lively, exciting and festive space for the Christmas period, this includes Cleobury Cafe where a  large display was obscured to some extent by the safety barriers for part of the time. This had no implications for the judges.
Subject to availability of the owner a presentation will be made on the 6th January outside the winning premises.
The competition may well evolve over the years but it is now a fixture in the Cleobury Christmas Calendar, thank you all so much for taking part.

Shropshire Council Public Transport consultation letter – March 2019

Healthwatch Shropshire is the county’s independent health and care champion. Through ‘What would you do?’ we will seek to reach as many people, groups, and communities as possible to get feedback on how local NHS services should change.

The Government is investing £20 billion a year in the NHS as part of the NHS Long Term Plan. Local organisations have now been asked to work together to develop their own plans, which will set out how the national plan will work across local areas.The public are being asked for their views about how services for cancer, mental health conditions, heart and lung diseases, long-term conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis, learning disabilities, autism, and dementia could be improved. They will also be asked to share their ideas on how people can live healthier lives and what improvements they think could be made to help people access services quickly.

These two surveys can be found here:

WW1 Sculpture 
The sculpture described below is now on view in St Mary’s church (until January 2019).

The Royal British Legion’s Shropshire Poppy Appeal and St Chad’s Church have been working with two local artists, Lyn Evans and Nik Burns to mark the centenary of the First World War. The collaboration also included Martin Phillips of Heritage Schools and children from 81 primary schools in Shropshire, and Telford & Wrekin.
Torn paper artist Lyn Evans and metal work artist Nik Burns were tasked with finding a way to mark the Centenary in a way which reflects Shropshire. Primary schools in the County were called upon to write the names of the fallen from their local parish. The names were gathered from the Shropshire Roll of Honour, which was compiled by two local amateur military historians, Neil Evans and Phil Morris. Lyn and Nik wanted to make the next generation truly part of this project and connect them to their past and Shropshire’s history.
This one-off sculpture will stand as a lasting legacy to the 5,286 lives lost from Shropshire during the First World War. The sculpture is free to view, and will be on tour throughout the county before returning back to St Chad’s in June 2019.


We need our community to be aware of the issues around domestic abuse and sexual violence – knowing the signs and how to get help.
The Crime Group, a voluntary community group supported by the Town Council are looking for new members who are prepared to help us combat this serious issue. Free training is available. Contact the Town Clerk on 01299 271154.
