The opportunity to secure the site of the former Royal British Legion (RBL) Club has arisen and the Council is seeking a view from Town residents to inform its decision. The Council bid for the site with a view to improving parking and transport facilities for the Town and as a means to encourage the retention of a fast train service stopping in Moreton to aid the local economy.

This issue has arisen now and as residents and business try to recover from the effect of COVID 19 it is even more important to look to the future for Moreton and make a choice. The site has been vacant for many years but the difference this time is that the site was marketed together with a pre planning application to be developed for residential use. The Council believe that the real value of this site is of strategic significance to Moreton in that its location is close to the railway station and to the centre of the Town.

If Moreton is to retain its position as a ‘principal settlement’ in the North Cotswolds and to remain as a gateway to the Cotswolds, it will need to continue to attract new businesses and visitors. This is not simply a railway problem to be solved; without a fast train service whilst housing will inevitably expand in future years, the economy of the Town could stagnate.

Instead the regeneration of the RBL site and the creation of a transport centre that encourages sustainable transport options for the future is an investment the Town has the opportunity to make now. Whilst the future of the car and sustainable transport options emerge this is the opportunity to focus transport in a logical centre for Moreton. Please take the opportunity to ask questions and hear answers from the Council on Wednesday 24 June 20 at 1830hrs (Please contact the Clerk before noon on the 24th June) and at a further session to be notified on the Moreton Town Council website.

WW1 Centenary

Moreton-in-marsh Town Council thanks everyone who made the WW1 Centenary such a memorable event for the town. Many people volunteered their time and effort to mark this poignant moment in our history. Thanks go to those contributed to the flags in the High Street, the displays around the War Memorial and to the coffee and cake morning held in St David’s Church on 27th October.

Special thanks go to the Heroes of Moreton group, who researched the fallen of Moreton-in-Marsh and Batsford Parishes, producing images of the fallen for a slideshow, banner and booklets.

On the days leading up to the Centenary, many people came to hear the Roll of Honour read each evening by volunteers and councillors. Thank you to Town Council staff and others for organising and helping. The huge attendance at the parade marked this significant day.

Thank you to Friends of the Redesdale Hall for providing refreshments in the hall after the parade.

The Town Council was delighted to host 25 retired residents for afternoon tea in the WI Hall. This was prepared by enthusiastic volunteers working with town councillors, and greatly appreciated. Overall, Moreton-in-Marsh and Batsford parishes can feel justly proud of how the centenary of the end of the First World War was remembered.
