Bring banks are currently provided at 120 sites across Shropshire by Shropshire Council and Veolia, to enable people to recycle household waste including cans, glass, paper, clothing and drinks cartons. It’s estimated that removing the bring sites would save the council around £230,000 a year, money that would then be put towards the provision of other vital services.
More information about the proposals and a survey is available here: Bring Bank Site Consultation
Closes: 25th January 2019
The Royal British Legion’s Shropshire Poppy Appeal and St Chad’s Church have been working with two local artists, Lyn Evans and Nik Burns to mark the centenary of the First World War. The collaboration also included Martin Phillips of Heritage Schools and children from 81 primary schools in Shropshire, and Telford & Wrekin.
Torn paper artist Lyn Evans and metal work artist Nik Burns were tasked with finding a way to mark the Centenary in a way which reflects Shropshire. Primary schools in the County were called upon to write the names of the fallen from their local parish. The names were gathered from the Shropshire Roll of Honour, which was compiled by two local amateur military historians, Neil Evans and Phil Morris. Lyn and Nik wanted to make the next generation truly part of this project and connect them to their past and Shropshire’s history.
This one-off sculpture will stand as a lasting legacy to the 5,286 lives lost from Shropshire during the First World War. The sculpture is free to view, and will be on tour throughout the county before returning back to St Chad’s in June 2019.
We need our community to be aware of the issues around domestic abuse and sexual violence – knowing the signs and how to get help.
The Crime Group, a voluntary community group supported by the Town Council are looking for new members who are prepared to help us combat this serious issue. Free training is available. Contact the Town Clerk on 01299 271154.
