Amenities

St Peter's Church

Edgmond has one public place of worship at St. Peter's Church (C of E). The Methodist Chapel on Shrewsbury Road closed in May 2016.

There is a notice board inside the porch of the church with details of services. 

For more information see the website for St Peter's Church.

 

St Peter's C of E Primary School

Edgmond is fortunate in having a busy and successful Primary School located in the middle of the village on Stackyard Lane. The original village school was on School Road adjacent to St Peter's Church. When the number of children attending the school outgrew this building, a second site was established where the current school now stands, and for some years the two separate sites operated. The old school was finally closed down in the late 1990's and since then all year groups have been on the same site. For more information about the school please visit St Peter's Primary School website.

 

Edgmond Owls

Edgmond has a children's day nursery immediately adjacent to the school. Please see the Edgmond Owls website for more information. 

 

Village Hall

The Village Hall is located on Shrewsbury Road. It hosts a number of clubs, classes and Groups. The Snooker Club is attached to the Village Hall. More information is available on the Village Hall website.

 

Edgmond Bowling Club

The club was formed in 1974 following the green being laid by the then Wrekin District Council. Interest in the sport started to increase and in 1976 a team was entered in the Mid Shropshire Bowling League. As time progressed and skills improved more teams were entered in other leagues. The club now has several teams, bowling many evenings of the week during the summer.

The clubhouse was built in 1989 by club members and friends and has a lounge, kitchen, toilets and a well stocked bar. Edgmond Bowling Club is a family club which endeavours to promote the game of Crown Green Bowls. The green is situated off the playing field car park oppposite the village hall. For more details contact the Secretary Richard Chesters on 01952 813378.

Edgmond Hall

Edgmond Hall is a converted Georgian farm owned and run by Sandwell Borough Council. It provides a wide range of residential and day-visit learning experiences for groups of all ages. If you see a small group of children out in the village they are most likely to be from the Hall.  For more information see the website for Edgmond Hall.

 

Edgmond Playing Field

Edgmond is fortunate in having a large playing field in the centre of the village. The field is set out for football in the winter and cricket in the summer. The sports pavilion is owned and run by Telford & Wrekin Council. Sadly, the village does not have its own cricket or football team at the moment but the pitches are used by visiting teams. If you want to book the pitch or make an enquiry there is more information on T&W website.

 

Play Areas

The village has one play area and a multi-use games area (MUGA). The play area is located behind the Bowling Club - just follow the path alongside the Bowling Club and you will come to it. The MUGA is located just beyond the sports pavilion. Both amenities are maintained by T&W Council.
