Mobile Library Service

We are pleased to announce that the mobile library service will be recommencing its’ service from Monday 17thAugust.

The service will operate to a revised timetable on a fortnightly basis.

We will be using an ‘order and collect service’ similar to the branch libraries that are already open.

The first visit will be focussed on customers returning their books and picking up an order form to complete and return to us in advance of the next visit.

Timetable: Mobile Library Timetable 8.20

The car park at Craythorne will reopen during the day time only from tomorrow morning (at approximately 8 am). The car park will close at 9 pm and will be locked around this time so please remove your vehicle beforehand.

Craythorne Car Park Closed

It is with regret that the Parish Council have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily close the car park at Craythorne with effect from this Sunday, 28 June. We apologise to those this will inconvenience but it has unfortunately become unavoidable. We will keep this under constant review and update should the situation change. The field will be open as normal. However it will now be monitored by East Staffordshire Enforcement Officers and the Police who will be issuing fixed penalty notices to those found littering or taking appropriate action for other offences.
