Hermitage Centre

Belle Vue Church's Hermitage Centre has received a Gold Award in this year's Shrewsbury Town Council Civic Awards Ceremony, which took place in May.

The award was presented under the Built Heritage category, which recognises projects that have enhanced the built heritage of the town. The Centre, which was completed in 2016, is very well used by community groups and individuals for classes, counselling sessions, leisure activities and children's parties, as well as for church activities.

The Mayor's Awards are labelled Shrewsbury's "equivalent to the Oscars", and they acknowledge local individuals, organisations, groups and businesses for the benefit they bring to the town. Some 72 of the town's people and organisations received honours this year. Speaking at the ceremony the Mayor Councillor Jane Mackenzie said, "The Mayor's Awards are my opportunity to thank some of the wonderful people and organisations who do so much to make our town a great place to live. It's a real privilege to recognise and reward those who gladly give their time and talent to benefit others living in our local community."

You don't need to lie down on the M25 or chain yourself to a train to make a difference with climate justice. But we do need to recongise that younger generations (that generation that we long to come to church) is looking to us to take Climate Change seriously. For that generation and others, Climate Change is not only a concern but something to be acted upon, now. September 25th, the...
