Article in Shrewsbury Chronicle, 23 December 2010

Shropshire and Wrekin Fire Authority wish to reassure the community and staff from the Service that the recent article in the Shrewsbury Chronicle (Thursday, 23 December 2010) entitled ‘Town Fire Station HQ Project is Scrapped’ together with the supporting paragraph, is wholly inaccurate. The remainder of the article relates the cancellation of the national fire control project (which is correct).

It would appear that the two articles have been merged, one fact based, one extremely misleading and confusing to both the public and our staff.

The Service has formally raised this misprint with the Shrewsbury Chronicle seeking a swift correction to the article, to be published prominently in their next edition.

If you have any worries or queries please contact Assistant Chief Fire Officer Steve Worrall (01743 260 204) or the HQ Project Team (Ged Edwards, Mark Donnelly, Ingrid Jones or Louise Goodhead), on 01743 260 208.
