Shropshire’s Outstanding Community Awards held this evening at the Engine House in Ironbridge and Wellington is declared joint winner with Church Stretton in the town category!

The award recognised the huge contribution from the many volunteer organisations such as The Orbit, Wellington Walkers Are Welcome, The Friends of the Bowring Park, The Peace Gardeners and the Friends of Wellington Station – to name but a few….

Also noted are the tremendous regeneration efforts from Telford & Wrekin Council and Wellington Town Council and the community work from Love Wellington, LA21 and Wellington H2A…as well as Wellington Market’s investment and renewal and the way Wellington businesses are working positively together.

We’re on the up folks and it’s getting us noticed! Here’s Deputy Mayor Cllr Dorothy Roberts and Town Clerk Karen Roper with the High Sheriff receiving the award and cheque
