    Works are nearing completion on the Preston Street pavements, which have been replaced. The shrubbery next to Shirehall has been removed and is to be levelled and seeded with grass. The Council will shortly be undertaking inspections to make sure the work is completed to the right standard - at the moment the shrubbery area needs more work, as many of you will have noticed!

    This saturday, campaigners will be taking to the streets in Shrewsbury Town Centre in a bid to save the Quarry swimming pool.

    Shropshire Council are currently running a consultation on the future of the swimming pool, and options include moving the pool to an out of town location such as Sundorne Sports Village. Many townspeople are against the proposal to move the pool, and the Quarry Swimming and Fitness Forum are organising a protest march.

    Sue Wood said

    'motorists hoot their horns and tell you to get off the road, but there isn't really any option if the pavement isn't accessible'.
