180th BIRTHDAY SERVICE TO CELEBRATE ACTIVITIES INVOLVING THEIR COMMUNITY
This morning we attended the Anniversary of St George’s Church, its 180th Birthday. The service was conducted by the Rev Murry McBride the vicar of St George’s in Frankwell, Shrewsbury.
After the Service we all had a cup of tea and a piece of Birthday cake. St George’s church is a lovely church to go to and I found it easy to do one of the readings, even though the church was full it has a relaxed feeling when standing in front of those attending the service.
As at all birthdays you have to have a photo for the family album and here is ours. This was taken just before it was time to leave, in fact I think we were the last to leave. As always it was a pleasure to be invited and to take part in the service at St Georges.
CIVIC SERVICE NEXT SUNDAY 12th February 3pm
My Civic Service will be held on the 12th February 2012 at 3pm in Shrewsbury Abbey and I can now say followed by tea at the Shropshire Wildlife Trust Centre Abbey Foregate. If you are planning on coming to the service please make sure that you let the Mayors Secretary Carol Pullen know by either phoning her on 01743 257655 or return the bottom part of the invitation if you have one. The church has a limit and it will be nice if we can fill every seat in there.

MY NEW ON-LINE SURVEY
As reported in the Shropshire Star, I am campaigning to have the footbridge from the Frankwell Car Park to the Riverside Shopping Centre called “The Zutphen Bridge”. As many will know that we are twinned with Zutphen a town in Holland and this connection between the two towns goes back further than the official 1977 Twinning ceremony, also further back than the Second World War. In fact our association with Zutphen goes back as far as 1586, when a certain Sir Philip Sidney was killed whilst attempting to push the Spanish out of Zutphen. In Zutphen they have Shrewsbury a traffic island named after Shrewsbury, as they are Proud in being twinned with Shrewsbury, I feel we should show our pride in a similar way and what better than a bridge.
