Our new charity, Sport and Arts in the Community ( SpArC) South West Shropshire 1170997 (yes it is a bit of a mouthful!) is now officially registered and trustees have been appointed. Jean Shirley and Richard Whately, who have worked tirelessly over the last year to set this up, are now part of the group of trustees sharing the skills we need to represent theatre and leisure users across SW Shropshire.
We are working closely with Shropshire County Council and Teme Leisure, who manage the centre.
This is a complete list of trustees, as of January 2018.

We are working towards a business plan in conjunction with Peter Williams and Lee Hassan (Teme Leisure); Peter Davis and Nigel Hodgson (Shropshire Council); Heather Kidd and Johnny Keeley (Councillors) and Alan Doust (CCBC Head). They are supported by Mathew Mead , Community Enablement Officer at Shropshire Council.
Jean says; “Our mission is for trustees, volunteers and supporters to work together to;
- Produce a business plan
- Agree a facilities improvement plan
- Agree a marketing plan
- Raise and allocate campaign funds·
- Continue to act as a pressure group
Richard says; “As a small community, we have shown just how much we can achieve in a short time, by working together to raise over £80k and winning the M&S competition for a new pool cover. The new charity pulls all of this together and is a really positive next step for us”
