Much of the villages housing was developed as part of and in the style of the Bradford Estate. Housing has gradually increased to suit most needs and elsewhere in the Parish there have been numerous barn conversions and cottages extended and improved.
Agriculture used to be the local employment but now most residents commute to Telford or the West Midlands conurbation.
The Parish has 2 Play areas, 1 in Blymhill sited within a Playing field and 1 in Weston under Lizard, both with very different play areas and equipment. The Play areas have been updated in the past 10 years by the Parish Council and receive an annual ROSPA Safety Inspection. Also sited in Blymhill is the Blymhill and Weston Village Hall that boasts Snooker Tables a bar and hosts weekly events Darts, Short Mat Bowling, Dance and fitness classes as well as providing other facilities and activities for all ages in the community. There is also a popular Parish Magazine produced by volunteers.
Members of the public are encouraged to raise any issues of local concern with the Council either via an approach to an individual Councillor or the Clerk.
The public are welcome to attend meetings of the Council but should note that they cannot normally participate in the meeting itself. However, where a matter is clearly of great local concern or perhaps in response to a specific request, it is our practice to temporarily suspend the formal meeting to allow members of the public to address councillors.
Councillors are always happy to hear from you and their contact details can be found via the Councillors page or alternatively contact the Clerk.
The Annual Parish Public Meeting held in May every year is used to provide a summary of Council activities. Members of the public with an interest in Council affairs are particularly encouraged to attend this meeting during which they can raise any issue. These will be minuted as the meeting is specifically for the general public to raise any relevant matter they wish to discuss. Once the public have finished their contributions the normal Parish Council meeting commences.
At the Parish Council meeting following the Annual Parish Public Meeting the Chairman and Vice Chairman elected or re-elected and Councillors voted on to the various sub-committees. Members of the public do not have any input to this meeting.
All of our Councillors take a pride in the Parish, work hard to ensure the community is represented/supported and aim to provide good local amenities for the benefit of all.
