Shrewsbury group meets on Monday 24th June, 2 pm-4 pm at The Lion Hotel, Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury SY1 1UY

We are meeting at the Lion Hotel and will be joined by West Mercia Police, for a Home and Personal Safety talk. Most people already take simple precautions as part of their everyday lives, without realising it. Staying safe is all about anticipating potential problems by listening and being aware of what and who’s around you, and knowing what action to take to stay out of danger.
