Annual Return 2016

The Annual Return (the audit summary report) for the year ended 31 March 2016 has now been completed and can be found on-line here:

The Parish Council felt that the report of the internal auditor was unfounded and provided a response to the external auditor which was accepted.

The opinion of the external auditor is that “On the basis of our review of the annual return, in our opinion the information in the annual return is in accordance with proper practices and no matters have come to our attention giving cause for concern that relevant legislation and regulatory requirements have not been met.”

John Sydney Thomas 1916 to 2016

The Parish Council is sad to learn of the death of one its most hard working and popular former members. John Sydney Thomas, known to all as Jack, served the Parish Council of Wrockwardine from 23rd May 1961 until he demitted office in May 2000; he died just short of his 100th Birthday. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

It is our understanding that there is to be a formal announcement in the Shropshire Star informing all that his funeral service is to be held at St. Peter’s Church, Wrockwardine at 11 o’clock on 28th January.

Borough Council Slurry Works

The Parish Council has been notified of the following from the Borough Council:

The Borough Council will shortly be working in your area as part of the ‘Everyday Telford – Pride in Your Community’ programme. The programme focuses on environmental and social issues that we know are important to residents. It is an investment programme to be delivered across the borough over a period of 2 years. Pride in your Community is also aimed at improving areas where businesses are located to support new and existing businesses and to assist with local jobs. Find out more by visiting .

The start date for footway slurry surfacing works in Telford & Wrekin this year will be 10th August 2015. This work will take place across 68 sites around the Borough, within a four month programme, with the works expected to be completed by early December. A list of sites for this project has been attached.

Before the slurry surfacing is carried out, information boards will be put up in all of the locations and residents will be informed to ensure that disruption will be kept to a minimum, however short term localised footway closures may be required in order to facilitate some of the works. This will be localised to areas where there are no alternative pedestrian routes available to accommodate traffic passing the works operation. Pedestrian diversions for these closures will be signed on site.

In advance of this work, it is necessary to undergo some preparation on each of the locations attached. This work will be ongoing from Monday 27rd July and will consist of weed killing, minor vegetation removal and cleaning of the existing footway surface in order to prepare the road for slurry surfacing.

Works on each site should last for no more than one day. Slurry surfacing is a weather dependant process, and therefore may be delayed by any periods of extended poor weather.

Further information will be available to the public via the council website, with a programme and frequently asked questions provided at


The Principal Contractor for this work will be Telford & Wrekin Services, with the surface dressing work being carried out on their behalf by JPCS

I am the Lead Officer for the slurry surfacing programme and will be responsible for the works throughout. My contact details can be found below should you have any questions relating to the works.

Many Thanks
