News from your Shropshire Councillor
Berrington Parish Community Led Plan (CLP)
The CLP Committee is now up and running and the first meeting was held
on the 18th March. Pleased to report that we have had a good number
of volunteers come forward from all areas of our Parish. The Committee
is being chaired by Henry Carpenter and Henry will update on progress to
date in the next edition of The Pump.
Dog fouling has dominated discussions at the Parish Council once again. I know that the vast
majority of dog owners who live in our Parish are responsible and pick after their dogs and
are heartily fed up of people having a moan about dog owners in general. It is not dog owners
in general, it is a few, thoughtless individuals who are spoiling our village green amenity
spaces for others. The level of dog fouling on the Playing Field, in particular, is now so bad
that even our grounds maintenance contractor is unhappy about cutting the grass and the
National Trust, who are the Landowners, will no longer be sending any of their staff to the
Playing Fields due to the Health & Safety risks.
The Playing Field is covered by a Public Space Protection Order, this means that the
Shropshire Council Dog Warden or the police can issue fixed penalty notices to anyone
allowing their dogs to foul the area. The Public Space Protection Order states that Dogs must
be under control. This does not mean that dogs have to be on a lead but they do need to be
under control. The Dog Warden will be carrying out spot checks at the Playing Field and other
areas in villages to try identify the individual (s) concerned and issue fixed penalty notices and
prosecute if necessary.
I am sorry to have to go on about this but it is the single biggest complaint we receive. The
real sadness is that our Youth Club is going from strength to strength but there is no way they
can use the Playfields in their current state.
Best wishes and kind regards,

Installation of new roundabout, Cross Houses
The Fletcher plans for the new roundabout in Cross Houses have now been approved by
Shropshire Council. The legal agreements are in the process of being signed, once this is
completed Fletcher’s can request a work permit from Shropshire Council to carry out the
The planning conditions state that the roundabout has to be completed prior to the first
occupation of the 2nd phase of development.
There is no doubt that the work to install the new roundabout will be disruptive to local
residents and traffic however once the new roundabout is complete we will see the benefits.
There are four drawings of the scheme, one of which is reproduced below. We will ensure
that all of the drawings will be on the Berrington Parish Council Website.
As yet no dates have been discussed as to the timing of this work. As soon as confirmation is
received we will ensure that notices are put up on the notice boards, information posted on
the Parish Website and Facebook page and in The Pump if the timing is right. This will also
include any alterations etc to the Bus Services and Bus Stops.

Learning, Listening, Living
Inspired by our landscape…
We started the year with an exciting
residential in Snowdonia but last month, Yellow Class learnt that they could be
inspired by our landscape, a little closer to home! With the help of
experienced outdoor educators from Arthog Outreach, they went on a guided
walk up the Wrekin. Along the way, they learnt some bushcraft skills and
thought about tools, housing and food sources for people living in the Stone
Age to Iron Age period. This not only brought
history to life but the children enjoyed some
beautiful early Spring weather and hopefully
became more familiar with an important
feature of our local area.
We love planning rich learning opportunities
like this – using the outdoors whenever
possible and increasing the children’s skills
and knowledge. Next month Green Class will be having a ‘Victorian’ school
day to help them explore their topic – we won’t be leaving our school
grounds but hopefully doing Drill, Rote learning and the ‘discipline of the
cane and dunce hat’ will be an experience which will bring history alive too.
This half term we have some exciting curriculum themes:
Red Class: Year R and Year 1 – On the Farm
We will be thinking about farm animals and how our food is grown. We will
be learning about the farms that are near us in Cressage.
Green Class: Year 2 and Year 3 – Victorians
We will be learning about life for children in Victorian times – school and work – as well as notable Victorians
such as Florence Nightingale.
Yellow Class: Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 – From Stone Age to Iron Age What did Cressage and area look like in
the Iron Age?
April brings National Offer Day for Reception places and we look forward to being in contact with the many
families who have chosen us for their children. We plan four introduction visits for children in the Summer
term and will be in touch with you soon about those. There are also opportunities to meet the School Office
and for a Home Visit, so we can learn as much as possible about your child before they start. News about
school places, also gets people thinking about younger children starting (perhaps in September ’20), it’s
never too soon to think about such an important decision - I would love to show you around – you don’t
need to wait for an ‘Open Morning’.
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. They are open 8am until 6pm. Ring the office for more details on

Berrington Parish Council will be taking part in the Great British Spring
Clean, a national campaign to rid our roads, parks and beaches of rubbish.

not acceptable. Join us on
Saturday 11th May, 10.30am - 12.30pm
on a litter pick around our villages. Equipment will be provided. Meet us at
the Community Centre at 10:15am to collect equipment.

The Reverend Sarah Hare writes
I write this on Ash Wednesday at the start of Lent although by
the time you read this, we will be half way through Lent. I have
just come back from taking an Ash Wednesday service in both Cressage and Brockton C of E Primary
School and on Ash Wednesday, I offer the children the opportunity to have an ash cross on their
forehead. This is a practice that goes back many years in the church when people might wear sack
cloth and ashes to show that they were sorry for their words or deeds. In the church, as we place
the ash cross on the forehead, we use the words from the Church of England liturgy – Remember
that you are dust, and to dust you shall return. Turn away from sin and be faithful to Christ. This
perhaps echoes the words from Genesis 3: 19 – By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until
you return to the ground for out of it you were taken; you are dust, and to dust you shall return.
Words said by God to Adam and Eve after they had eaten the fruit of the tree that they were told
I don’t think that these words would be appropriate in school with some very young children and so
today in the schools, I asked the children what words we should use when we make the sign of the
cross – what did the cross mean to them and they used words and phrases such as God loves us and
cares about us and God forgives us. What I love is that children of all ages understand the mystery
and the wonder of the cross and they can sum this up in just a few phrases. Taking this service in to
school is always one that I find very moving as the children choose whether to come forward or not
and have the ash cross, and they show respect to each other in their choices.
As we walk towards the cross on Good Friday over these next few weeks, while this was and is an
instrument of torture, it was also the place where God showed his love for us through his son Jesus
Christ, the one who made the ultimate sacrifice to enable us to have a relationship with God.
Whatever your belief in this Lent and Easter season, I pray that you might see afresh what the
children in our schools see and know – the love of a God for each one of us. The sadness of the
Good Friday followed by the amazement, wonder and awe of that first Easter Morning as the tomb
where Jesus had been laid was open and he was alive and with his friends and disciples again. Jesus
who still walks with us today.
May you know the wonder of this Lent season and the joy of that first Easter morning.

Much Wenlock & Cressage Medical Practice
PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND LAUNCHES
‘CERVICAL SCREEENING SAVES LIVES’ CAMPAIGN
On Tuesday 5 March 2019, Public Health England (PHE), launched the major new national campaign ‘Cervical
Screening Saves Lives’, to increase the number of women attending their cervical screening across England.
The campaign will encourage women to respond to their cervical screening invitation letter, and if they
missed their last screening, to book an appointment at their GP practice.
Around 2,600 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in England each year, and around 690 women die
from the disease, which is 2 deaths every day. It is estimated that if everyone attended screening regularly,
83% of cervical cancer cases could be prevented.
New research from PHE shows that nearly all women eligible for screening (90%) would be likely to take a
test that could help prevent cancer - and of those who have attended screening, 9 in 10 (94%) would
encourage others who are worried to attend their cervical screening. Despite this, screening is at a 20-year
low, with 1 in 4 eligible women (those aged 25 to 64) in the UK not attending their test.
Regular screening, which only takes a few minutes, can help stop cervical cancer before it starts, as the test
identifies potentially harmful cells before they become cancerous, and ensures women get the right
treatment as soon as possible.
The PHE research shows that once they have been screened, the vast majority of women feel positive about
the experience, with 8 in 10 (87%) stating they are ‘glad they went’ and that they were ‘put at ease by the
nurse or doctor doing the test’ (84%).
In support of this campaign and to encourage as many women as possible to attend for cervical screening,
Much Wenlock and Cressage Medical Practice, in addition to the facility to book an appointment within the
normal working week, will be offering dedicated evening cervical screening Nurse clinics between 5pm and
7pm at Much Wenlock Medical Practice on the following dates:
Thursday 9 May Tuesday 14 May Wednesday 22 May Wednesday 29 May
We will be sending out invitations to those patients due a cervical smear, however if you are not sure whether
you are eligible and have not received an invitation please contact the Practice and we will check your records.
