Numerous attempts over the past eight years to locate a suitable site to build a new sustainable centre where the Perry Group can be guaranteed a future and many other groups and individuals can benefit.
A planning application has now been lodged for a site kindly put forward by the Willey Estates in Much Wenlock. Full details are available on the Shropshire council planning web page, and there are more details on the new Cavalier Centre website by clicking here.

Shropshire Council and its partners are considering how to best shape and provide activities in the future for young people aged 10 to 19 and up to 25 for those with learning disabilities.
Public services are changing with more emphasis on working in local communities. There is also more emphasis on involving young people in developing services. Shropshire Council and its partners want to make sure that as many young people as possible can take part in youth activities in their own area. Shropshire Council believes that youth activities should be enjoyable and useful to young people’s development.
By youth activities Shropshire Council mean things to do outside of school, at the weekends and in the holidays. For example; activities like youth clubs, sports/games clubs, art activities, Scout activities and many others.
Seeking the views of a broad range of interested parties is a critical part of this. Shropshire Council want to hear from young people, their parents & carers, existing & potential providers (in-house and external), activities staff & volunteers, Shropshire Council members, and others that the Council work with in partnership.

The Perry Riding, Driving & Vaulting Group are gaining information from individuals, families and groups to complete a study regarding the proposed new ‘Cavalier Centre’ near Much Wenlock.
Information gathered will help them in their efforts to create a new riding centre that will provide more varied opportunities and cater for more children and adults with disabilities or additional needs than they are currently able to.
As well as horse related opportunities they are also looking to create a specialist outdoor activity playground, an indoor soft play area and training kitchens to support skills development.
The Perry Riding, Driving & Vaulting Group would appreciate your time in completing their questionnaire. For further information about the proposed new ‘Cavalier Centre’ and to complete the questionnaire please click here.
‘Scrappies’ (The Shropshire Children’s Scrap Store Recycling & Resource Centre)are delighted to announce that as part of their Short Break provision for this year they will be holding six training days at ‘Scrappies’ premises in Church Stretton. These training days are available to people that work or volunteer at local clubs or groups that provide opportunities to children and young people with disabilities or additional needs.
If you have had a ‘Scrappies’ workshop you will already know the benefits of creative arts activities. This new opportunity will allow those attending a training day to visit the store, look at the kinds of materials available, plan a six week programme and ‘create’ your own art box full of resources. Topics covered will be the ‘creative’ play experience, safety and planning a programme of activities for your own setting and collecting the resources/materials from the store.
The training day will normally run from 10.00am until 3.00pm and will include a light lunch. There will be a small cost to cover the resources/materials you gather for your group.
It is difficult to manage times and days when individual people are available so if you think you might have your own larger group then ring Lesley on 01588 672610 and book the day just for yourselves at a time to suit you. ‘Scrappies’ artists can work evenings, weekends and holidays. Obviously individuals will be welcome to join in with other groups and there is always an advantage in meeting others to share ideas.
Please call Lesley to ask about training days taking place from September 2013 to February 2014.
Creative Workshops for children & young people:
As well as training days for adults, ‘Scrappies’ can also offer a creative workshop session for your group of children and young people. If you haven’t had a creative workshop for your group previously then please contact ‘Scrappies’ as they have nine workshops still available – Halloween and Fireworks are always good themes! 01588 672610
