Please note that a DEFIBRILLATOR can be found on the wall of the village hall. Dialling 999 will allow a release code to be made available. Clear verbal instructions are given once the unit is started.
The refurbishment of the village hall toilets has now been completed thanks mainly to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund and contributions from our County and Borough Councillors.
The facilities are now bright, modern and environmentally efficient. We hope users will appreciate our continuing efforts to improve the building

By the end of our programme all properties within Shelford will have access to Superfast Broadband
There are two structures planned for Shelford Parish. A Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) structure serving approximately 100 properties in Shelford and a further smaller structure to serve the properties within postcodes NG12 1ES and NG12 1ER.
The structures are planned to be deployed during Phase three of our programme running from July 2017 to March 2018. However we are accelerating much of the FTTC deployment so hope this cabinet can be delivered towards the beginning of the phase 3 period.
Message from Our Borough Councillor, Nigel Lawrence
The phone box on Main Street has now been smartened up and pocket sized plans of the history trail made available to anyone who wants to follow the full trail or just take a leisurely walk around the village.
We hope you agree that this makes good use of a piece of our history.
Shelford is a typical rural community village with a church, pub and village hall which are all well used. It is situated beside the River Trent.
Shelford means ‘place of the shallow ford’ and there has been settlement here since the Bronze Age. The village is in the Trent Valley, about 8 miles from Nottingham. Shelford is still very much a farming community with arable and mixed farming and a livery stable. There is plenty of wildlife, particularly migrating birds down near the River Trent. There is a toll ride for horses and the Trent Valley Way runs through the village.
The village has one pub, the Earl of Chesterfield Arms and one Village Hall, previously the Church of England School, built in 1873 by the Earl of Carnarvon and later taken over by the Notts Education Committee, the school closed in 1964. The building belongs to the Crown Estate and was leased first to the Church and then to the Parish Council to be used as a Village Hall.
