Write Here commissions special Shrewsbury pen


Shrewsbury's future Mayors will be signing official documents with a flourish from now on thanks to a gift from a local business.


A special silver pen has been commissioned by Write Here in Shrewsbury's High Street and will be presented to the town council next month.


John Hall, owner of pen shop Write Here, situated in the High Street, has commissioned the gift from a traditional long-established English manufacturer and it will be hand engraved with Shrewsbury's loggerheads motif. 


"I thought it would be a fitting way to commemorate the current Mayor's successful year in office and the pen will be used by his successors in years to come.


"It was great that Miles and his wife Aurona were able to visit us at Write Here to see the pen being crafted in preparation for the presentation," John Hall said.


The mayor's office will be officially presented with the silver writing instrument on Miles Kenny's last day in the role on May 9.
