We managed to run one face to face meeting to kickstart the working group in Ash Village Hall on March 14th, just before the lockdown. We’ve had two online meetings for those who couldn’t make it on the 14th and will be holding further online meetings for the working group during April & May. It will be harder for the working group to get to know each other without face to face meetings but we’ll just have to manage.
We had over 50 people attend our launch events in Whitchurch, Shrewsbury and Wellington with 22 people indicating they’d like to take part in the next working group stage and 14 indicating a willingness to become a Director. Many thanks to Keith from CSE, Simon from Co-operative Shares Unit, and Julia from Shropshire RCC.

It’s not too late to get involved.
We will have another event in Bishop’s Castle 2pm Fri 21st Feb, at the 3 Tuns.
and a webinar 7pm Wed 26th Feb,
We have also visited the Twemlows site and met with the landowner and operations manager, both of whom were interested and supportive. The site appears to be well built and well maintained.
