Resident at our annual Senior Citizens Christmas Party on Sunday 9th December were invited to donate items to Telford Food Bank as part of the Parish Council’s support for local charities. Councillors were overwhelmed by the donations they received on Sunday and as a result of their generosity 6 crates of food and £177.37 were donated to the foodbank yesterday. Co-ordinator Ollie Locker came to the Parish Centre to receive the donations from Chair of the Parish Council Anne Watkins and Councillor Lynda Madeley.
Parents and carers from Wrockwardine Wood Toddlers Group raised an amazing £130 at their Macmillan coffee morning event from the sale of cakes and donations. ( Sept 2018).
In November 2018 the Parish Council funded a memorial garden at Holy Trinity Church, Wrockwardine Wood to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War 1.
The work was carried out by our Parish Environmental Team operatives and their colleagues from TWS Ltd and Reverend Debbie Loughran dedicated the memorial garden at the end of the annual Service of Remembrance on the 11th November.
The Parish Council have purchased a defibrillator for the community thanks to Ward Pride Funding from Borough Councillors Shirley Reynolds and Charles Smith.
The defibrillator has been sited on the exterior wall at Holy Trinity Church, Wrockwardine Wood and can be used by residents when dealing with anyone in cardiac arrest.
The defibrillator is accessed by a code, which the emergency services will provide once you have dialled 999. The machine then talks you through the process for using the machine.
