Hello,May I introduce myself as your new Mayor for 2019-2012? I am Cllr Anthony Lowe, recently retired after 45 years working in engineering sales (30 of which in Telford & Wrekin). I have lived in Wellington for the past 7 years and am a Ward Councillor for Shawbirch on Wellington Town Council.

My Mayoral theme will be similar to your outgoing Mayor Cindy Mason-Morris to whom I wish to pay tribute. Cindy brought complete dedication and energy to the Mayoral role and is a tough act to follow! I wish to promote our local businesses in all 7 Wards of the Wellington civil parish and to support our many voluntary groups and organisations. I will be pleased to hear from you if you need my support or just wish to have a chat via Wellington Town Council offices at the bottom end of the library within the leisure centre.My chosen charities will be:

Manin Place

Based on New Street in Wellington who offer accommodation for people who are sleeping rough or are homeless within Telford & Wrekin

Telford Aftercare Team (TACT)

Based at Strickland House in Wellington which is a centre of recovery from alcohol and drug dependency offering structured daily activities

Click Here to donate to the Mayor’s charities now!

Both these organisations have been set up to help the most vulnerable in our Town and in our part of Shropshire. There will be a donation link on the Wellington Town Council website to allow you to make donations over the coming 12 months and I will be organising fund-raising events. It is an honour to have been unanimously elected as your Mayor. I am here to lift the profile of our historic market town. If you feel that I can be of help to you or your organisation, please ask.

Thank you.
Anthony Lowe

We are happy to announce an exciting addition to the Wellington Festival:
Sunday 20th October:
Bear Witness film showing with visual art and song writing workshop
Wellington Library and Committee Room
Film 1.30
Workshop - 2.30pm - 4.30pm
Audience: Aimed at ages 10+

Did you know that in 1821, two Dawley miners were shot dead by Shropshire Yeomanry as they marched with 3,000 men, women and children to protest proposed pay cuts that threatened starvation? Thomas Palin was later tried and hanged for “felonious riot”.
Film showing of Bear Witness, Cinderloo 1821: Be one of the first to see this new short film by Jill Impey and Andrew Howe and learn more about the story of the Cinderloo Uprising, Shropshire’s Peterloo, which took place almost 200 years ago in Old Park, Dawley.
After brief discussion and refreshments, you are invited to take part in the following fun activities to help create collaborative artworks and song taking inspiration from the film:
Mapping Art Workshop: join artists Amanda Hillier, Andrew Howe and Jill Impey to explore ideas in collage, simple printmaking and creative writing. No art experience needed.
Song writing: singer/songwriter Kate Allan will facilitate the pooling of ideas as we come up with a song or two on themes related to Cinderloo and Dawley’s untold history. No singing or songwriting experience needed, just curiosity about both.

Sponsors: The National Lottery, Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic England, The Wrekin Housing Trust, Great Dawley Town Council and Dawley Hamlets Town Council.
