436 BUS SERVICE THROUGH CROSS HOUSES

As many of you will remember the EasyBus service ceased just before Christmas. Shropshire Council

arranged with Arriva to cover the service whilst they put the service out for tender for a new, five

year contract starting on 3rd April 2018. I am sure that you will be pleased to know that Arriva have

been awarded the contract and so the service will continue in its current form. If you have any

concerns or questions regarding the service please do not hesitate to contact me.

FLY TIPPING

There has been an increase in incidents of fly tipping across the Severn Valley area. If you spot any

fly tipping you can report it directly to Shropshire Council by telephoning 0345 678 9000 or by using

the “Report it” facility on Shropshire Council’s website or you can tweet @Shropcouncil alerting

them to the items and location. Please be as specific as possible regarding the location so that the

removal teams can locate it as quickly.

News from Christ Church C.E. Primary School

Learning, Listening, Living

Did you know that volunteering has been recommended by the NHS? Numerous scientific studies have shown

that people who volunteer are healthier and feel more positive about life than those who don’t volunteer.

The NHS estimates that an amazing 44% of you volunteer at least once a year for something outside of your

work, family or home. Thank you to all of you who are already volunteers!

As a school we welcome volunteers in a number of capacities:

Reading Support – we have valued volunteers who come into school for a

couple of hours each week and talk to children about books and hear them

read. The children love it.

Governors –the school’s ‘critical friend’ asking questions about the education

we provide for children and making sure that we use public funds wisely.

Open the Book team – coming into school every Monday to share a Bible story

with the children through drama and storytelling.

If you would like to volunteer there are opportunities, please be in touch. In

particular, our Governing Body has space for a co-opted member and we are

looking for someone with current or past experience in either education or

business. Other governors are very supportive and this could be a great way of

investing in our children and is looked on favourably by many employers. If you

want to find out about governors or other ways of volunteering do contact the

School Office. As with all work with children, a DBS check is required (criminal

records) and we provide training and support to help you enjoy the role.

For the summer term the whole school has an ‘Animals’ theme

and we are looking forward to a visit from ‘The Animal Man’ with

reptiles and insects, at the start of term and a visit to the Safari

Park, later in the summer.

Red Class: Year R and Year 1

Red Class are thinking about Jungle animals.

Green Class: Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4

Green Class are studying animals and plants in different habitats.

Yellow Class: Year 4, Year 5 and Y6

Yellow Class are thinking about life cycles. We are also working on a joint Primary Stars programme with

Shrewsbury Town Football Club for a day a week

Remember we are the catchment school for many villages: Cressage, Cross Houses, Harley, Cound,

Coundmoor and Sheinton but we also have children attending from further afield. We work closely with

Childrensworld UK who are onsite and offer an “Outstanding” (Ofsted) nursery and wrap-around childcare

for before/after school and the holidays. Ring the office for more details on 01952 510383.

The Reverend Sarah Hare writes

Dear Friends

I love this time of year when week by week, we see more flowers coming out on the sides of

the roads and in the hedgerows as we fully enter Spring, although you might be forgiven for

being unsure if we are in Spring yet with the ongoing threat of more snow! Following the last

lot of snow, as it was finally melting I saw different coloured crocus peeking out through the

blanket of snow – a sign of new life indeed. As I look around at the last of the snowdrops, the

crocus and the daffodils which are just coming out I am amazed again at the world and it’s

beauty and the cycle that it goes through.

I think the beauty and variety around us shows something of the extravagance of God and it is

something that I have been thinking about recently as I have been fortunate to receive the

extravagance of others through hospitality, through the time of individuals and through their

generosity in many different ways. We have a God who is always extravagant with us and as

we enter April this year, April 1 st is Easter Day, the day when we think about the ultimate new

life – the new life that we have received because of the life, the death and the resurrection of

Jesus.

In Holy Week as we lead up to the beginning of April, we will remember the incredible and

amazing fact that God sent his own son to earth for us because he loves us and wanted to

have an everlasting relationship with us. The life, the death and the resurrection of Jesus

shows God’s love and extravagance for each one of us. Billy Graham who died in February

this year and will be remembered for his preaching and rallies around the world said this:

“God proved his love on the cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying

to the world, ‘I love you.’ The story did not end here on the cross as on Easter Day we

remember that life overcame death when Jesus rose from the dead and met the disciples

time and time again to show them that he – Jesus had risen from the dead, he had the marks

of the nails, but he was there with them again. He ate with them, he talked to them and he

walked with them. Jesus had overcome death, he had beaten the darkness and made a new

relationship with God for us that we could live with him forever.

Whatever is happening in your life today, I pray that you will know the beauty and the joy and

the wonder of that first Easter morning, of the hope that Easter brings to us and may you

know the blessings and the extravagance of God who loves you, with you this Eastertime and

always.

CRESSAGE

Despite a very cold evening the AGM in January was well supported. Sally Lucas-Garner, Chair, welcomed

everyone and gave details of the Club’s progress and growth during 2017. Jan Halmshaw Secretary, gave a

brief resume of visiting speakers and visits CGC had made to other gardens and places of interest during the

past year. Two members, Edie Alvis and Marjorie Vickers, who had served on the committee since CGC’s

WELCOME

ATCHAM PARISH COUNCIL NEWS – MARCH 2018

Welcome to the Spring edition of Atcham Parish Council’s newsletter. The council held both the

Annual Parish Meeting and its regular council meeting in March. These meetings were also the last

for the clerk, Rebecca Turner who is sadly leaving to take up a role at another parish council. The

council welcomed Lorna Pardoe as the new clerk and she will take up post on 1 st April 2018. Lorna

is also clerk at Berrington and Uffington.

PLANNING

The council agreed comments on the following applications:

17/05812/FUL - Proposed Car Dealership And Premises South Of, Thieves Lane,

Shrewsbury, Shropshire - Erection of new car dealership building comprising car showroom

and servicing workshop and valeting facilities, plus standalone vehicle repair and prep

building, and drive-through car wash, together with staff, customer and storage parking and

external used car display area

Comments: It was resolved to object due to concern re highways – adequacy of the access

for car transporters and concern re traffic using the bypass rather than Emstrey. Access to

the dealership for customers being too close to Emstrey.

17/06157/FUL - Proposed Commercial Development Land To The South Of, Thieves Lane,

Shrewsbury, Shropshire - Hybrid application (part full, part outline) - Full - erection of a petrol

filling station (Sui Generis) and drive through cafe (Use Class A3/A5) together with the

creation of a new access, parking, landscaping and various other infrastructure works.

Outline - provision of a new office park (Use Class B1) to include access (some matters

reserved)

Comments: It was resolved to object due to intensification of highways use and lack of need

for a further petrol station/coffee outlet. Lack of need for the offices as there are already

vacant premises in the area.

18/00293/FUL - Chilton Cottage, Atcham, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY5 6QP - Erection of

two storey extensions and detached garage

Comments: It was resolved to object to the boundary wall due to height and impact on

visibility.

18/00111/FUL - Erection of one poultry unit (32,000 birds), associated feed bins, formation of

a vehicular access

Comments: It was resolved to support the application as diversification of farm use and the

fact it is not intensive.

Wilfred Owen 100:

Great Shropshire war poet

remembered

The 4th November

2018 marks the

centenary of the day

that the Shropshire

poet and soldier fell in

battle at the tender age

of 25, just seven days

before the Armistice

brought the conflict to

an end.

The centenary is being marked in his home

county of Shropshire by a series of events over

the last 100 days from 4 August to 4 November.

With a focus on Shrewsbury and Oswestry,

Shropshire’s Wilfred Owen 100 will remember

him with poetry readings, music, talks, new

installations, themed guided walks and much

more.

Events will reflect on the emotion, exhibitions,

installations and projects from the 2014 – 2018

commemorative period and celebrate one of

Shropshire’s most renowned sons. A number of

these events are being supported by the

Heritage Lottery Fund.

The project will also harness archives, artefacts

and memories held out in the community by

organisations and individuals, and secure their

preservation and accessibility for the future. The

ambitious aim of this partnership project is to

involve every community in this large county

and to reach audiences of all ages.

A free programme of all the cultural arts

activities and events across the county will be

published in May 2018.

GARDENING MATTERS

Top Tips courtesy of Tim Robinson, Manager of Love Plants

Colourful Camellias

Camellias provide a splash of colour when little else is blooming during the winter and spring. They

are easy to grow and popular for their bold evergreen foliage and abundance of showy, white, pink,

red, or yellow flowers. An elegant shrub for a border or woodland garden and make excellent

specimen plants both outdoors in open ground or in containers.

Camellias are woodland plants that grow best in light, partial or dappled shade, in a site sheltered

from cold, dry winds and avoiding early morning sun, as buds and flowers may be damaged by cold

winds and late frosts. They prefer free-draining conditions with plenty of organic matter such as leaf

mould, incorporated into the soil. Camellias must have plenty of water during their growing season,

between April and October; the critical period for watering is when the flower buds are forming,

from midsummer to early autumn.

Camellias are best pruned in spring immediately after flowering if needed. They will tolerate hard

pruning but generally only need to be lightly trimmed or have any branches that spoil the

appearance of the plant removed and pruned back to an outward facing leaf node.

Camellias are evergreen shrubs their leaves are replaced every few years; each year a proportion of

the foliage (mainly older leaves near the base and within the plant) are shed, usually in spring and

summer. This is normal and not a cause for concern.

The ideal time to plant Camellias is autumn to late spring. When planting in a border they prefer

moist but well drained, humus-rich, acidic soil; with a pH of 5.5 – 6.5. If the level is higher or lower

than this, they are unable to absorb the necessary minerals for healthy growth. They do not like to

be planted too deep; the top of the root ball should be level with the firmed soil.

An acidic fertiliser, sulphate of ammonia or sulphate of potash can be added to the soil when back

filling the hole. If you prefer to use organic fertilisers: blood, fish and bone or seaweed products can

be used instead.

Once planted it is a good idea to add a mulch of leaf mould or shredded bark, 5-7cm (2-3in) deep to

hold in the moisture and keep the roots cool.

Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again if necessary in the early summer but do not

overfeed, feeding after July can also cause bud drop.

Camellias are easy to grow in containers of ericaceous (acidic) potting compost. Add ericaceous,

slow-release fertiliser pellets to the potting compost when planting up the container.

Rainwater is ideal for watering Camellias; tap water in hard water districts often contains too much

calcium; although it can be used satisfactorily for a month or two in the summer.

Top five Camellias: -

Camellia ‘April Kiss’ – is a cold hardy hybrid with compact, moderate growth. Abundant, formal

double flowers are red-pink, bloom from late winter to early spring. Maximum height 3–4m (9-12’) x

spread 1.2-1.5m (4-5’).

34


Camellia japonica ‘Brushfield’s Yellow’ – have anemone form, double flowers which are creamy white

with a light-yellow centre during January to April. It is an upright evergreen shrub the one pictured

is grown as a standard which will grow up to 2m. Prune immediately after flowering and keep

watered in the summer to ensure plenty of flowers for the following year.

Camellia x williamsii ‘Debbie’ – produces magnificent large blooms from February to April. The

williamsii varieties shed their flowers as they fade and have smaller leaves so are generally better

able to cope with more exposed positions. These hybrids also flower early and over a long period

even in areas with low light intensity such as the north of Britain. Maximum height 1.8m (6’) spread

1.2m (4’).

Camellia ‘Lady Vansittart’ – produces unusual white striped and spotted rose pink, semi-double

flowers with wavy petals from February and continuing until April. Maximum height 1.2 – 1.5m (4-

5’).

Camellia ‘Desire’ – has a vigorous, upright habit and formal double flowers up to 10cm across which

are white to pale pink with a deeper pink edge. Maximum height 2.5-4m (8’-13’) x spread 1.5-2.5m

(5’-7’).
