Shobnall Parish Council Sponsor Belvedere Park Junior FC



Councillor Mahboob Yousaf was welcomed to Shobnall Leisure Centre by Burton Athletics Club on 8th October when Cllr Mahboob presented a grant aid cheque on behalf of Shobnall Parish Council.


The funding provided by Shobnall Parish Council has gone a huge way in developing and moving the club forward for the local athletes at the Club. Cllr Mahboob saw first-hand one of the Club’s training sessions and spent some time with the throws squad alongside Throws Coach and Chairman Jaime Walker. Jaime Walker said “We fully appreciate the funding from Shobnall Parish Council and this funding has gone on to support the competitions take place at Shobnall, it was great to welcome Cllr Mahboob and for him to see the good work that is happening at Burton Athletics Club”.

Dallow lock murals

Shobnall Parish Council has recently spent 9,000 on completely renovating the two murals either side of Dallow Lock canal towpath.

The Murals stretch the complete length of the bridge and depict the history of Burton Upon Trent and the Shobnall Ward. 

The murals were first installed in 2007 and have won numerous local and national awards.


The Parish Council decided to renovate the murals as they had become tired and in need of a complete overhaul.

The murals have been completely stripped back, repainted and protected and will hopefully be seen to great effect by passersby for years to come.

New Bikes for Inclusive Cycling Centre

East Staffordshire Borough Council’s Inclusive Cycling Centre, based at Shobnall Leisure Centre, received a generous contribution from Shobnall Parish Council to purchase two new adapted bikes.  The Centre now boasts twenty adapted and nineteen cycles which cater for children as young as two and the variety of bikes allows people with any disability the opportunity to cycle in a safe and organised way.   The Inclusive Cycling Centre is open daily for families, community groups and schools to access. Each booking is fully supervised by trained cycling staff which will assist all participants when using the bikes.   Daily booking is required, please contact Shobnall Leisure Complex on 01283 508180 or for weekly community group or school use please contact Neil Brown on 01283 508192.

Councillor Bernard Peters, Deputy Leader for Service Commissioning, said: “I would like to thank Shobnall Parish Council for their generous contribution. By working together both Shobnall Parish Council and East Staffordshire Borough Council are meeting the needs of the community. The Inclusive Cycling Centre is proving popular to schools and families, not only from East Staffordshire, but from the surrounding towns and the two new adapted bikes further improve the facility.”


Margaret Hoare, Shobnall Parish Councillor said: “We were very happy to make a contribution towards the two new adapted bikes. Hopefully not only will the people of Shobnall make use of the bikes but also the residents and community groups of East Staffordshire.”
