Help us put Shrewsbury on the map!
The Shrewsbury Big Town Plan Partnership is asking people to become ambassadors for the town, creating a “team Shrewsbury”, to help promote the town and encourage more people to visit and invest in Shrewsbury.
A meeting is being held on Tuesday March 23, from 10am to 11am, when representatives from Shrewsbury BID, Shropshire Council and University Centre Shrewsbury will explain more about the project.
The meeting is open to everyone and will be held on the Zoom video app. Click here to book a place.
The idea is to harness the passion and knowledge of Shrewsbury residents, organisations and businesses to help the town flourish in the future.
The Big Town Plan Partnership says:
“We are hoping to build our own ambassador group for Shrewsbury, to bring businesses, residents, education, the public sector, the third sector, indeed the whole community together to really put Shrewsbury on the map.
“We have an amazing story to tell, and we have such a lot to be proud of, but we all need to talk the place up and celebrate our successes. Together we need to act as ambassadors for Shrewsbury and get our story out there.
“We are lucky in that Shrewsbury already has many individuals and companies who are quietly great ambassadors for our wonderful town, who promote the place, speak up for it and are keen to help move it forward.
“We want to build on their fantastic contribution and we want more of them, so we can create a powerful and compelling ‘team Shrewsbury’ approach.
“Ambassadors will be invited to regular meetings where they will be able to hear about new initiatives, developments and success stories from the people that are making them happen.
“Alongside this they will be able to create relationships that will benefit them and Shrewsbury, influence and learn about the place, act as a spokesperson for it and perhaps develop initiatives with each other.”
The meeting on March 23 will include talks from Paul Johnson, Head of University Centre Shrewsbury; Rachel Williams, non-executive director of Shrewsbury BID; and Tim Pritchard, Shrewsbury Programme Manager at Shropshire Council.
