As you know The Parish Council has arranged remembrance for those soldiers from Lyonshall who lost their lives in WWI. The church bells will toll at 6.00pm on the anniversary of the day they died and toll for the age of each solider at time of their death.
Our first fallen hero is Captain John Coke McMurdo who died on 25th April 1915 aged 30.
Over the next few days until Monday, you can visit the church where you will find a tribute of memorial crosses in the Memorial Garden and a resume of his life and connection to Lyonshall and The Church on the table inside the South door. (From Lyonshall research)
For more details look under the Lyonshall commemorative project which can be found Parish History on this site.
Please take the time to listen for the bells and remember.
Now spring is here the grass really has started growing.
The mower will have its annual service Monday and the playground grass is quite long and ready for cutting.
We have a couple of helpers who have already offered to mow but we would really like to organise a group of volunteers to share the duties on a rota format.
Can you spare a few hours a month? Would you like to join the team?
Please contact Becky 01544 340747 or Kate 01544 340092.
Friends of Lyonshall Playground,
Please join us for an informal get together at Lyonshall Playground on Thursday 2nd April at 3.00pm.
Bring along a picnic and while the children play we will have the opportunity to talk about how we can manage the playground going forward.
There are several items we need your help with: please share any bright ideas
Do you know how we can clear the mole infestation?
Can you spare a few hours to help paint and preserve the woodwork?
Do you have green fingers, could you help with general weeding?
Can you help find someone to mow the grass over the summer months?
Our playground is a great facility but we do need your help to look after it. We would like to see as many parents, friends and children on Thursday so please come along.

Seven of the houses at Fishpools have been occupied with a 100% satisfaction rating by the occupants. One shared ownership house remains to be filled and South Shropshire Housing Association has offered an incentive to tempt someone, preferably local, to move in. It is offering £1000 towards legal fees for any application leading to a reservation by the end of April. This will be paid at completion of a successful sale.
I know that several locals have expressed an interest and I also know that the process is complex. If you are interested then contact Maggie Davis at South Shropshire Housing 01588 676238 or the agent Cobb Amos, 01568 610310 (ref: 11501).
