We are now only three days away from the Football Special Event.
Raising funds for Hope House the football themed event will mark the joint anniversary of the foundation in 1864 of the Cambrian Railways Company and our neighbours at Wrexham FC.
Along with ourselves, there will be representatives from AFC Telford United, Morda United, Oswestry Boys and Girls’ Club, Shrewsbury Town and Wrexham. Even Manchester United is represented in the form of a group which is planning to reconstruct the main line steam locomotive of that name.
Spot will join Wrex the Dragon from Wrexham and Shrewsbury’s Lennie the Lion in a mascot shoot out and there will be a Panini World Cup sticker swap shop for those trying to complete their collections (sponsored by Stan’s Superstores).
It is hoped that the Welsh Cup and other silverware will be on display. There will be train rides and refreshments available with the high point of the show being a flypast by a Dakota of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the world famous Red Arrows.
The event runs from 11.00 to 15.00, admission £1 accompanied children under 16 free.
