Audlem amd District Community Action (ADCA) have cancelled all their regular meetings but they are organising help and support for those in the local community who need it. Hankelow Parish Council are sharing in the action - see their notice here.

The picnic tables and benches on the green in Hankelow have been removed temporarily by the Parish Council, in view of the current Corona Virus advice on social distancing. The opportunity will be taken to do some maintenance on them.

They currently offer three selections (see here).  You can order online, but if you are not used to using the internet you can ring them on 07564 599372. If you are struggling to place an order, Rose Smith has offered to help - her contact details are at the top of this section..
