Gaskell Recreation Ground – Creation of New Path

Gaskell Recreation Ground

Creation of New Path

Work is currently under way to create a new path on the Gaskell Recreation Ground.  The work is expected to take around two weeks.  The path will connect with the Linden Walk, forming a rectangular route around the perimeter of the Gaskell Ground.

The top surface of the path will be made of porous tarmac, allowing water to drain through, and it will provide a dry route around the edge of the Gaskell Ground in all weathers. The path will be wide enough to accommodate mobility scooters as well as pedestrians and those with pushchairs or wheelchairs.

Please take care during the works and respect the temporary boundaries, which are there for your safety.

Please continue to follow government advice regarding the coronavirus outbreak and maintain a distance of at least 2 metres (6 feet) from other visitors to the Gaskell Ground.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Annual Town Meeting 7pm

Thursday, 12thMarch 2020


Much Wenlock Town Council has considered the wisdom of holding the Annual Town Meeting, scheduled for 7pm on Thursday 12thMarch 2020.

We have tried to consult and also gain the most information available at this time but the situation is changing on an hourly basis.  Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared an international pandemic.

We are aware of local organisations which are changing their advice and internal practices and that a number of events have been cancelled.

Members of the Town Council have been canvassed and a decision has been made to postpone the Annual Town Meeting, with the intention of holding the meeting in May 2020, dependent on advice from central government with regard to public meetings.

We regret this decision has been made at such short notice but we believe that a postponement of the meeting to a later date is in the best interest of the electors of Much Wenlock parish.

A new date for the meeting will be announced in due course.
