SALC Community Survey

This survey has been developed in partnership by the Shropshire Association of Local Councils (SALC) and the Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly (VCSA). This survey is designed to encourage community-based groups and organisations to highlight key local issues. A very similar survey has been designed for town councils, parish councils and parish meetings. SALC hope to use the survey to learn more about:

  • How local communities have responded to the coronavirus pandemic
  • Any concerns or issues currently being faced or identified community concerns for the future
  • Organisational support needs
  • How local partnerships are benefiting local people
  • Examples of good practice
  • Ideas, suggestions and opportunities for the future

Co-operation between community groups and town and parish councils has always been important, but the results local partnerships achieve have been recognised more than ever during the coronavirus pandemic. Understanding this joint working will be important as we work together to overcome future challenges and recover from the impacts of the pandemic.

Shropshire Council’s Feedback and Insight Team will support with survey analysis and they hope the results will help form a baseline for future research. They welcome any feedback groups have, so please use the open space at the end of the survey to add any issues not covered within the survey questions.

How 3 became 4. An update on Jess’s Gang -Titan Challenge.

Last month we brought a news article about 3 Muskebears, 22 Brave Volunteers, raising funds for 3 Charities! Now we bring you news of how 3 became 4, together with information on how you can support Jess’s Gang-The Titan Challenge.

Those of you who know our Secretary, Ann Shaw, will know she has made it her mission to ‘rescue’ teddy bears.  She scours charity shops searching out the unloved bears who have been given away and offers them a new home in the ‘Bear Pit’.

The story began with Murphy, who was sitting on her chest when she woke up from an operation in 2012.  He is named after the surgeon who did the operation.  Happily, Murphy acquired a brother in March this year.  Alf is the spitting image of his brother.

Murphy and Alf have a very good friend who lives in Bromsgrove.  He is Cuddles, Jess Hiles’ constant companion.

All three are very excited to be involved in the Titan Zip Wire Challenge on 6th October. 

On a recent visit to the Barnardo’s Charity Shop in Market Drayton, Ann came across a very sad looking bear, calling out to be rescued.  When she brought Maude home, Alf and Murphy persuaded her to join their adventure in North Wales.

So, the Three Muskebears are now the Four Muskebears.  Cuddles will be in purple for MacIntyre, Alf will wear blue for Guide Dogs and Murphy will be in cerise for SDN. Maude will be wearing orange for Safe Places Shropshire.
