Street Works at Rushbury (Church Farm) on Sunday 17th December 2023 by Severn Trent 

Due to the adverse weather, the scheduled works did not take place on Sunday 3rd December. Rescheduled for 17th December.

As requested by Shropshire Highway Authority Severn Trent are writing to inform of essential works for which they are required to close a small section of road at the above location on Sunday 17th December 2023 in order for Severn Trent to carry out a new water connection into a property.

All work will be completed on the same day between approx.. 08:00 – 18:00 to keep any disruption to a minimum. Access and egress will still be possible from either end of the road.

If any queries please contact the Parish Clerk.


The Honeypot Parish Magazine has had a great community Facebook page for several years now, and it really helps us to share up-to-date information about what’s happening across our 4 parishes.  But community pages no longer allow people to share their own posts, and we’d like to make everyone feel more involved and able to share their own information, so we’re migrating to a new Facebook Group simply called "The Honeypot”.

We’d like as many people as possible to join The Honeypot Group, so please click here to join now!

It is a public group, that will be moderated.


The next meeting of the Parish Council will take place on Monday 15th January 2024 in The Committee Room, Rushbury Village Hall starting at 7:30pm. Items for discussion will be as detailed in the published Agenda. 

All welcome to attend. If any parishioner has any questions or concerns for Council, then attendance at the meeting is welcome to raise these or else can be directed to the Clerk of the Council at
