Welcome to our Website

LogoMarket drayton welcome signWelcome to the official website of Market Drayton Town Council which has been designed and constructed to provide what we hope will be a valuable resource of information to all residents of the town and visitors.

Market Drayton was granted its charter in 1254 and today still holds one of the liveliest weekly street markets in the area. It retains much of its medieval street pattern with red sandstone and mellow brick buildings mingling with black and white half-timbered properties.


Market Drayton is twinned with Pezenas in France and Arlon in Belgium

Herefordshire Careline -
Help at the push of a button

Herefordshire Careline can give you or your loved ones the reassurance and peace of mind that if you require help, it is not far away!

Careline is a 24-hour personal emergency response service, based in Hereford, which is connected to your home through an alarm unit linked to your telephone line. In times of need, help is just the push of a button away!

Our alarms are connected to our friendly operators who are on hand to answer your calls instantly and get you the help you need. The service helps people to continue to live independently in their own homes. We have lots of products to choose from including pendants, watches and sensors. Our installation team covers Herefordshire and Shropshire.

The Careline service can cost you as little as 58p per day.
For more information please speak to our Careline team on 01432 384100.

Herefordshire Careline is run by the Independence Trust, part of the Herefordshire Housing Group.
