Projects and Pipes on the Theatre
Yesterday evening we projected a message of thanks to all key workers and volunteers from the Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury. The message was visible from several vantage points in the town from dusk, and widely shared on social media. It was a small way of expressing our thanks to all key workers and volunteers of Shropshire Council and the many other organisations working tirelessly to get us through these difficult times. Whether your work involves front-line care for the sick and vulnerable, or other essential roles such as cleaning, refuse collection, delivery driving, teaching or the production and distribution of food, we want you to know you’re all worthy of praise and that the whole community is behind you.
Please look after yourself...
We mention this a lot, but it’s so important... please, look after yourself. This is such a difficult time for everyone, and we want you all to stay well. Take breaks, have group chats, get involved in Yammer and online communities. It’s hard to juggle work and family life at the best of times and now it’s even more complicated. If anyone is struggling, please speak to your manager or raise it with Occupational Health. We can’t stress enough that people are here for you and it’s totally understandable if anyone wants a chat, if anything, it’s remarkable that we’re all as ok as we are!

Over 3,300 potholes and other defects have been treated on Shropshire Council’s roads so far this month as the council’s Highways Team takes advantage of the reduction in traffic during the lockdown.
Between 1 and 23 April, 3,343 defects were treated. The vast majority are pothole repairs, with work also including some kerbing and ironworks.
On average 37 gangs are on the county’s roads each day, predominately two-man pothole crews. Work being carried out also includes texpatching, thermal patching, and jet patching.
