Perry Riding – support for planning application

RDA logo for Perry Riding

 

 

 

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.

If you would like to show your support please do so by lodging a supporting comment on the planning site, with a plan to gather 2,000 if possible. It involves registering first and then being e mailled back. It is a little time consuming but will be invaluable to the cause if you and any friends and supporters can spare the time to do it:

Go to www.shropshire.gov.uk and on the home page look at the column on the left and click on Environment and Planning.

You will next see a page with three main headings – Planning, Environment, Recycling and Rubbish.

Go to the Planning list and at the top Click on Online Planning Register.

The next page invites you to find or comment on an application.  Complete the Text Box with 14/02127/FUL and enter. Then follow the simple instructions to leave comments and I hope your SUPPORT for the application.

My First Inclusive Ballet at Theatre Severn

Theatre Severn

coppelia_8 CS5This April, Theatre Severn welcomes renowned dance company the English National Ballet as they present My First Ballet: Coppelia.
My First Ballet: Coppélia tells the story of an eccentric toymaker, a beautiful doll (Coppélia), a pair of star-crossed lovers, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity. Of course love triumphs over all and the finale is a breath-taking celebration of the lovers’ marriage.
The My First Ballet series brings young audiences their first taste of ballet through the magic of fairy tales, captivating music and beautiful dance. The ballets are danced by second year students of English National Ballet School in performances produced by English National Ballet.

My First Inclusive Ballet

English National Ballet School, in partnership with Kings College London, Widgit and Sign2Learn have been working together to make ballet more accessible to children with learning difficulties and disabilities.

In order to make the performances more accessible English National Ballet have created a range of bespoke learning resources. Using graphic symbols downloadable prior to the performance, families, carers and teachers of children with learning difficulties  and disabilities, can better help children’s understanding of the story, ballet and going to the theatre.

These resources are available to download now by going to http://www.ballet.org.uk/whats-on/my-first-ballet-coppelia/ and clicking on ‘Symbol Resources’

My First Ballet: Coppélia premieres at Theatre Severn Shrewsbury on 5th & 6th April. Details can be found by visiting their website at www.theatresevern.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01743 281281. Please do ask about group bookings as discounts maybe available.

Consultation on activities for young people in Shropshire

Shropshire Council logoShropshire 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.

To respond to this consultation and to find out further information please click on the following link:

The consultation will close on the 31st March 2014.
