Crossing Patrol Proposed Cuts by Staffordshire County Council

Most people know their school crossing patrol as their lollipop lady or man. They do a wonderful job day in, day out, and in all sorts of weathers. It’s a valuable service that is loved by the local community, children and families.

Due to unprecedented financial challenges, with a £35 million gap in budget, Staffordshire County Council is reluctantly considering proposals to no longer fund the school crossing patrol service after September 2019.

Instead, they’re asking communities and businesses now to think about if and how they could fund a local patrol in the future.

Under the current proposals, they would still employ the patrols and provide the training, management and the uniform and interested communities would work with schools to arrange funding.

They recognise that school crossing patrols are hugely valued by schools, parents and children. That’s why they want to hear from you if you use a patrol, ideas on how posts could be funded in the future and whether there are other suggestions for improving travel to school, such as expanding walking buses.

They'll will be gathering views until December 31, 2018. So find out more and have your say here.

Pitch at the Rear of the Drive
Doxey Parish Council are pleased to announce that St Leonards Rugby Club will be playing on the pitch at the rear of the Drive in Doxey from September 2018.

A little about St Leonards

St Leonards Rugby Club (‘’the Saints’’) has been established in Stafford for 40 years (40th anniversary in 2017/2018 season. It is a thriving club which competes in Midlands Leagues and benefits from strong support from the RFU.

The club has around 75 members (playing and social), and a group of loyal volunteers.

The club play on a Saturday afternoon and train on a Tuesday evening.

This has been agreed following the decision by AFC Doxey to cease playing, leaving the field available for hire.

St Leonards Rugby Club have also secured the use of the Universal Club for their changing room.

More information can be found at the clubs website at www.stleonardsrugby.co.uk

Doxey Parish Council welcome them to Doxey Village and look forward to their support and links to further grow and develop the community.

The Saints look forward to continuing with their tradition of raising money for local charities and welcoming new players of all ages and standards

 Bellways Homes update - Nov 2017


The Parish Council are delighted to inform residents that the affordable homes have been returned to the proposals for the former Police HQ at Baswich - meaning that Doxey will not have to fight a further application to place the homes on Mallard Walk. Well done to everyone in Doxey who supported the campaign and wrote in to object including all of the members of DASH.

Redrow Open Space and Park
It was agreed at the December 2016 Parish Council meeting that the Parish Council will move forward to take ownership of the space excluding the culvert.
Redrow have offered to redesign the Park and this will be done via consultation in the January Parish Newsletter which is circulated to all homes. 

This was completed in March 2017 and the Council have plans to make repairs and add new equipment to the park.

The park equipment is inspected weekly by a trained inspector. If you see any issues with the equipment please report this to clerk@doxeyparishcouncil.gov.uk
