Belle Vue and Coleham Community Action Group is for residents and business owners of Coleham and Belle Vue to discuss how we can make our community an even better place to live, work and play. The group has regular meetings at the Prince of Wales pub, with each meeting focusing on areas of concern raised by residents, such as anti-social behaviour, parking and planning applications.
The group is supported by Kate Halliday, Councillor for the Belle Vue Ward.
Our Group recently received official recognition from the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire, Mrs Anna Turner, for its fabulous work supporting the community during the pandemic.
Chair John Ingham says : “The Belle Vue & Coleham Community Action Group was formed over a year ago and we are delighted to share congratulations and recognition of our Sub-Covid Community Support Group. The committee is very grateful for this recognition. This would not have been possible without the dedication of our committee, who formed the Group over a year ago to make what was already a strong community even stronger. As a whole, we all strive to make our community an even better place to live, work and play for the future, and we are immensely proud of this our latest achievement. The Covid Support Group has been an invaluable addition throughout this pandemic and continues to offer a great service. We appreciate that no one should ever be alone, or in need in these stressful times!!”
“The Covid Support sub-group provides a range of services to our community from shopping, walking man’s best friend, support to our friends in isolation and much more. This of course would have not been possible without the dedicated work of Councillor Kate Halliday, Nigel Fielden, Deborah Fielden and Diane Peacock who formed the Covid Support sub-group, together with all the wonderful volunteers who support them and the community as a whole. We want to assure our community that the service will remain in place for the foreseeable future for the residents of Belle Vue & Coleham.”
“As a group we have been fortunate to have the loyal support of our local Councillor Kate Halliday, who from its conception to the present day has been an invaluable asset to both groups for which we are all very grateful. We have seen amazing community spirit since March in many forms, and we would like to thank The Lord Lieutenant, Mrs Anna Turner for this official vote of thanks.”
