VJ DAY IN WELSHPOOL

What day. Saturday 15th August 2015 saw a parade leave the Berriew Stret Car Park lead by a brass band with standards, venterans, the Town Council, our MP, the Royal British Legion, Air Cadets, Scouts and public taking part.  The procession headed to the Town Hall with crowds applauding the veterans as they passed. At the Town Hall there was a siren, a minutes silence, a prayer by Rev Roger Brown and the bells of St Marys before the band lead the parade with a salute to the veterans. On arrival at the back of the Town Hall the procession dismissed. There was then a tremendouse spread in excellent surroundings in the market for all with a special VJ Day cake cut by John Gwilt of the RBL. There was the band to enterain before the veterans were joined by Councillors and friends for dinner in Bistro 7. A day to remember.

MOTTE AND BAILEY CASTLE AND RAILWAY DOCKS
The works to clear the undergrowth from the old railway docks has been completed. The next stage is to keep the undergrowth under control and restore the sheep pens at this Transfer Station. In due course there will be interpretation boards and perhaps some rolling stock to represent the era.  The Cattle Docks are close to the start of the Town Trail being prepared.  The area around the Tourist Information Centre has some sculpture interpretation of the railway and will be in the middle  of the Town Trail which leads people closer to Raven Square Steam Railway Station.

The Town Council is to meet with Edwina Hart to discuss the delays to changes planned for the one way system in Welshpool along with the Brook Street/Union Street proposal (to return the roads to two way). A date has yet to be set.
