From the Ansley Morris Dancing Group to The Hood Lane Farm Coffee Hut, there is something for everyone. The Village Council also encourages local people to join in and get involved with these activities, as it helps to create a strong sense of community spirit.

There are three areas of allotments in the Parish. Two in Ansley Common and one in Ansley Village. All of these grounds are owned by the Borough Council and let out to the allotment societies. We were asked for allotments in Birchley Heath and Merevale Estates offered a small piece of ground off the park which was used for allotments before. No one contacted us to accept this, but if anyone changes their mind please contact the clerk.

The contact details for the current plots are as follows:

Fitness Activities

The following are some suggestions for around the parish and surrounding area.

Walking: Try Hartshill Hayes Country Park, the gardens of Arbury Hall or some of the many public footpaths we are lucky enough to have  in the area. Even better, if you have some spare time why not consider helping to maintain these country walks and join a local group who carry out monthly maintenance.
