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

Fast broadband is now available in Shelford as fibre to cabinets has now been connected. Several villagers have already signed up but anyone interested in getting faster speeds should contact their ISP.
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 a community-owned pub, the Earl of Chesterfield Arms (for news of what's happening here please click on "Pub News" under the News and Events tab) and a 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.
