Dog Owners

Please will all local dog owners please show more consideration to the children and other residents by clearing up after their dogs. There is currently dog waste on the field which the owners should have removed to stop others from treading in it. There is a bin for your dog's waste so please use it!

Anyone who is aware of the times that this is happening please report it to Environmental Health at Lichfield District Council so action can be taken.

Many thanks to those dog owners who have behaved responsibly!

Howard Primary School

Howard Primary School is about to enter a new and exciting phase in its History. The chance of joining forces with St Mary’s Primary and Richard Cross Primary is now a certainty with the offer from Government for the three schools to coming together as a Multi Academy.
This is great news for our Primary school for three main reasons
We secure the support and skills of the Management Team headed by Paul Lovern
We pool recourses to make the running of the school far more efficient
We obtain increased funding form Government to further develop the School amenities and services
Howard Primary is already seeing vastly improved pupil results and discipline and a new out of school "before and after" club has been started to support parents and carers.
With only 51 pupils attending and September intake low we do need to ask and encourage everyone in the village to consider or indeed re-consider sending your children to Howard.
It is positive and exciting times at Howard Primary School and Elford Parish Council fully support the work of Mr Lovern and the team.

20 is Plenty

Following recent reports of vehicles speeding past the playground and in many other parts of the village too, Elford Parish Council are proposing a '20 is plenty' campaign to keep our residents safe.  Signs are now displayed so let's all do our bit to drive more thoughtfully around Elford!


The defibrillator has now been installed at the Village Hall, near to the entrance (see below)

For peace of mind residents may wish to look at a video explaining how to use it or read this quick guide. In an emergency call 999 and they will talk you you through how to use it.

Some residents have attended a first aid training session and it is hoped to run a further session for other residents shortly.
