It’s that time of year when towns across Shropshire are holding their annual Christmas light switch on ceremonies.
Council ask residents for views on Monkmoor Rec
Shrewsbury residents are invited to have their say on the future of one of the townâ€™s most popular leisure facilities.
Shrewsbury Town Council took over the management of Monkmoor Recreation Ground in July from Shropshire Council and want residents views on its future.
Town Council bosses say they are committed to improving and enhancing the existing facilities, which are in need of some regenerative work.
A public consultation event is being held this Saturday September 22, at the ground, from 10am until 12pm.
Members of the public are invited to have their say about the future of the site and there will also be some free football and bowling taster sessions on offer.
Helen Ball, Town Clerk said: â€œThe Town Council has committed significant investment in Monkmoor Recreation Ground now that it has transferred from Shropshire Council. We would like to hear residents views, what they think is good and bad about the ground, and what they would like to see in the future, with the overall aim of encouraging greater use of the facilities. There will also be a chance to try out some free taster sessions on the day.â€
Councillor Miles Kenny added: â€œItâ€™s so very important for those living nearby or those who use the â€˜recâ€™ to come along and say what is good about it and what could be better. There will be a number of sports to watch, or take part in, along with goodie bags and displays. However the point is for users and residents to have their say in what is their recreation ground. â€
Anyone unable to attend the open day can visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XKGVDJV to register their views.
