We would love you to join us on the Village Hall and Recreation Area Charity Committees.
If you want to get involved but don’t want to join a committee we always appreciate extra help; we are looking for anyone who can give a little time to keep our recreation area & village hall clean and tidy, fundraise or organise an event (or anything else you feel you have to offer!).
If you have some ideas for what you would like to see happen locally contact us.
Join the Friends of Brown Moss
Brown Moss Local Nature Reserve, SSSI and RAMSAR site, is a beautiful place to visit and attracts many people every year. This can put pressure upon the infrastructure, biodiversity and residents of the area.
As the site managers we, within Shropshire Council’s Outdoor Recreation Service, would like to set up a Friends of Brown Moss to enable us to:
- Keep you better informed and ask your opinion on specific matters.
- Work with you to resolve issues before they become problems.
- Organise events, courses and training tailored for you and the site.
- Organise regular work parties in practical conservation management and monitoring.

Shropshire BioDiversity – Wildflowers
Many of our common wildflowers are in decline. Roadside verges provide vital corridors for wildlife and many are rich in wildflowers.
Shropshire Council as part of its strategy to protect the countryside and wildlife of Shropshire has a Wildflower Verge Reporting webpage. If you know of roadside verges that are good for wildflowers or have notable plants on them, you can record it here. Once recorded it will be passed on to the highways team who will adjust their mowing regime accordingly, where safe to do so.

The White Lion, Ash
Community Pub Group
With much enthusiasm, dedication and support from the village, local residents are working together to prevent closure of the pub and save The White Lion as a community asset. The Group have raised £325,000 in shares, grants and loans; sufficient to purchase the pub from the current owners who will retire when the land and business assets are transferred, and to provide a small working capital. However, the Group would still like to raise another £20,000 – £45,000 to provide additional working capital and fund refurbishment work.
The Group are looking for volunteers with an interest or expertise to get involved. If you have skills or knowledge which you feel would benefit the Group and are willing to offer your time visit savethewhitelionash.co.uk to find out how you can help and who to contact.
Or maybe you wish to help by purchasing a community share? Find out more here.
