Choose Well This Winter - not all accidents are emergencies

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust wants to make sure people are prepared for any minor accidents this winter and to make sure they get the most appropriate treatment.

It is a good idea to make sure telephone numbers for your GP surgery, local out of hours service Shropdoc (08444 068888) and NHS Direct (0845 46 47) are saved into your home and mobile phone so you can quickly and easily call for advice if you’ve had a minor accident.

ShrewsTRUST Blog – Following Town in about 500 words (Part 4 – Xmas Special – Scunthorpe United (A)

My nephew lives in Scunny with his Mum and Stepdad. My Mum has remained close to his Mum, and so the opportunity to visit was just too good.

With my brother (Nephews Dad) living 80 miles away, a chance for ‘Uncle Ade’, My Bro and Son to watch Salop was hatched.

Normally travelling to North Lincolnshire sees grey skies. Today the sun was out, and with ‘Classical Music’ on the stereo for Mum, the journey flew by.

Shrewstrust is Shrewsbury Towns only democratic supporters group, so has a unique position between supporters and the football club. Initially set up as part of a government initiative called Supporters Direct, supporters trusts are designed as a structure to help if a football club becomes bankrupt. Put simply, supporters trusts are like an insurance policy for football clubs that swings into operation if the worst should happen. Luckily, at Shrewsbury Town we have an excellent club which is well run and will be for the foreseeable future, but things can change quickly in football, so every club needs a supporters trust.

ShrewsTRUST Blog – Following Town in about 500 words (Part 3 – Xmas Special – Coventry City (A))

The reason why as a fan you want to gain promotion, is that you get to visit bigger clubs, bigger grounds, and fell former giants. Alas, so far this season, trips to Bramall Lane, Elland Road and Fratton Park had seen a return of ‘nil point’. And to be honest going to the Ricoh Arena, didn’t bring much hope of that sequence ending either.

Save your bread

Every year the average family in Shrewsbury goes through about 80 loaves of bread, spending around £125 in the process.  This is a large amount of money for many people and yet about a quarter of this just ends up in the bin!

Shocking but true, in fact just in the Shrewsbury area residents bin about 6,000 slices of bread every single day!
