Health Survey

Ellesmere Town Council is giving residents the opportunity to share their views and experiences of health and community care in the town.  The survey asks questions about people’s experiences of GP, dental, optical, audiology and wellbeing services as well as local pharmacies. All contributions will be anonymous.

Ellesmere Town Mayor, Cllr Anne Wignall, said: “There has been much discussion about health and wellbeing in the town and councillors have been approached by residents who have concerns. We are therefore asking people if they would like to share their stories with us, to include what works well and where there is room for improvement. We want to engage with the issues people think are important.”

The Town Council will consider the information received and share this with providers, lobby for change or tackle the problems, as appropriate.

Cllr Geoff Elner,  Ellesmere Town Councillor and Shropshire Councillor for Ellesmere Urban, said:

“As new houses are built and the population of Ellesmere continues to grow  residents are worried that local health providers will be able to cope with the extra demands on the services.

It is essential that we act to help ensure that extra provision is made available where needed and we are already talking with all of the relevant authorities to highlight existing concerns.

This survey will help us to benchmark where we are now and l would encourage everyone to participate and complete one.”

Completed paper copies can be handed in at the Town Hall, the Post Office or to Ismay’s in the High Street.

Shropshire Council – Public Transport Survey

This Autumn we’re bidding to Government’s Bus Back Better fund to transform services across Shropshire.

We’ve got some great initial ideas and our bid will be much stronger with your views on board.
We’ve created this online survey which should take about 5 minutes to complete, and if you represent a group there’s an option to record the group’s views too.

Volunteers sought to share views about Shropshire’s highways service


Shropshire residents are being asked to help with work to improve Shropshire’s roads, by volunteering to take part in some research.

Shropshire Council and its contractors are working hard to improve the county’s highways and make them safer for all road users. As part of this work volunteers are being sought to suggest and talk about changes they would like to see made to the council’s highways service, and the ways the county’s roads and pavements are maintained.

Steve Charmley, Cabinet member for highways, said:

“We’re working to improve Shropshire’s roads and we want to make sure that those improvements are ones that will make a positive difference to all road users. To do this, we’re looking for some volunteers willing to take part in some research and talk to us about the changes you would like to see.

“Most people use our roads, and most people have an opinion about them. We want people to share their experiences, and share their thoughts about how we could further improve our roads, and our highways maintenance service.

“If you would like to volunteer, please let us know. All comments made and views shared will be considered and we look forward to hearing what people have to say.”

Anyone interested in taking part, or finding out more, is asked to register their name and contact details here.
