Consultation on Tree Planting

Tree planting

At the last meeting of the Parish Council, it discussed applying to The Woodland Trust for free trees to plant in the community.  The Council would apply for what is termed a “small copse” which comprises 10 trees each of silver birch, rowan and wild cherry and would probably plant them on the village green in Chapel Chorlton.  We considered planting half of them at the point of the green and half of them close (but not too close) to the former BT phone box.

The Council would be pleased to receive comments on these proposals – please contact Jan, our clerk, at or on 07563660298.

Speed Indicator Device in Hill Chorlton

In response to concerns raised by the local community in Hill Chorlton, a Speed Indicator Device (SID) has been installed in Hill Chorlton. Community members are already noting a reduction in speed through the village.

The Parish Council is hoping to finance a further SID at the other end of the village and is looking to work in partnership to provide a further device in the Stableford area.

Community Defibrillator in Chapel Chorlton

Chapel and Hill Chorlton Parish Council would like to thank Eccleshall First Responders, Stableford caravan park and County Councillor Paul Northcott for all of their help and support with the above project. The defibrillator is now in place and operational in the adopted BT telephone box by the village green in Chapel Chorlton.

There have been two training sessions but more are anticipated later on in the year.

Defibrillator Training Sessions

A life saving community defibrillator is about to be installed in the former BT phone  box on Chapel Chorlton Village Green that has now been adopted by the Parish Council.

Free training will be provided by Eccleshall First Responders on Tuesday 4th June, 7-9pm and Saturday 8th June 10am-12pm at the Madonna Club, Stableford Caravan Park. Booking is essential-please e-mail the Clerk, Jan Simpson on or telephone 07563660298 to secure your place.

If you are unable to come along to either of these dates but would still like to receive the training please contact the Clerk so further sessions can be arranged later in the year.
