What's on Now - 2022
A Christmas tree and a celebration of the Coronation
Mel Oakley has been exploring the possibility of siting a Christmas tree on Chapel Green, linking this to planting a tree to celebrate the Coronation. A permanent tree would mean no problems each year sourcing a tree and then disposing of it. She approached the Parish Council for advice, and they asked Chris Woods, a councillor, to meet with her on Chapel Green. Trees for Trefonen have been allocated specific spaces on the Green by Shropshire Council, owners of the land. The Trees for Trefonen Co-ordinator showed them the position of an as yet unused space which they thought ideal for their purposes.
The sourcing of the tree has been worked out and Mel is now seeking to raise the money to fund its purchase and planting. She will be organising tree buddies to look after the tree and keep it weed free. If you would like to donate towards this, there is a box in the Village Shop or you can drop your contribution off to Mel at 58, School Lane, on the corner just opposite the War Memorial Green.
Thank you in advance for your support.

Have you connections with our mining past?
Our green environment, tinged with black...
We want to celebrate and promote an interest in our industrial past. The Heritage Group is developing two new interpretation panels for display on the Jubilee Field, to replace those we installed in 2011. We shall be working to draft the new panels in the new year and we are inviting you to contribute to our research as we prepare the boards. If you can give us any links to the miners and their families, please contact:
