Message from Anita Weeks, Weston Lullingfields.
I am looking for someone/a company to deep clean a house after all the furniture has been moved out ready for the new people to move into. It has been empty for some time and is very dusty.
It does not need a deep clean because of Covid19
Unfortunately there was a glitch in the NGS website which has now been sorted.
BROWNHILL HOUSE GARDEN IS OPEN on 30th June from 9.45am until 4pm
Please go to https://ngs.org.uk/shop/garden-tickets/the-midlands/shropshire-brownhill-house-tuesday-30th-june
to book a one hour slot. Only ten people allowed in the garden for one hour at a time, sorry no tea and cakes.
You have so generously bought our plants, now visit the garden where they came from.
We look forward to seeing all those walkers who came past the house during the lockdown - parking places are always limited.

Replacement shuttle bus service 29th June to 3rd July
Due to the forthcoming road closures on Church Street, the normal 576 bus service connecting Ruyton XI Towns with Oswestry and Shrewsbury will not be able to travel through the village. As there are many individuals in the parish who rely on the bus, the Parish Council has been pushing both Arriva and Shropshire Council to arrange an alternative service for a number of weeks. So we are very relieved to finally confirm that there will indeed be a replacement shuttle bus service connecting Oswestry and Ruyton XI Towns from Monday 29th June to Friday 3rd July. PLEASE NOTE: the shuttle service will terminate at School Road in the village, and it will NOT connect Ruyton XI Towns with Shrewsbury. You can view the replacement shuttle service timetable here.
The Parish Council is arranging for the shuttle bus timetable to be displayed at bus stops and notice boards around the parish, and there are also posts on the Council website and local Facebook page. Please feel free to share this information with anyone who may benefit.
The Parish Council would like to thank everyone involved for helping to keep the community connected during the road closures.

Casual Vacancy at Ruyton XI Towns Parish Council
Following the resignation of Cllr Ryan Harrison to pursue teacher training, there is now an empty seat on the parish council (known as a casual vacancy). We have already notified Shropshire Council, and you can view the notice of casual vacancy on our website. Please note, that due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, in the event that a bye-election is requested to fill the vacancy, then such an election is not expected to take place before May 2021. If no election is requested before the deadline specified in the notice, then the council may fill the vacant seat by co-option. If you would like more information on any of the above please contact the parish council clerk.
We would like to thank Cllr Harrison for all his hardwork and dedication to the council and community over the last three years, and wish him all the very best for his new career.
Clerk to Ruyton XI Towns Parish Council

At last, Brownhill House Garden is able to open, on Tuesday 30th June.
We will be open from 10am until 5.15pm but you need to book a one hour slot on the NGS website - see link below. Remember, there is much you can see from the top of our garden, even if you are wary of the steps.
Due to the current situation we are having to set certain conditions so that everyone can enjoy our gardens safely.
We have worked hard to produce the plants which you have very generously bought from us. Now please support our opening day to continue raising funds for the charities supported by the National Gardens Scheme.
We look forward to seeing you at Brownhill House Garden, next Tuesday, 30th June.
Yoland and Roger Brown
