Shropshire RCC's Wise and Well team has enjoyed supporting Shrewsbury's Musketeers and Maidens Group since 2011.
In August 2011, when the Grange Day Centre at which a group of friends with various disabilities closed, Shropshire Council enlisted Shropshire RCC's help to set up a new group.
Shropshire RCC staff supported the group to pool part of their personal budgets to have a venue and the opportunity to do activities together. They chose a name: "Musketeers and Maidens" with the motto "All For One", and members of the group meet twice a week: at Mereside Community Centre in Shrewsbury on Wednesdays from 10.30am - 3.30pm, and at the Community Room at Tesco Extra in Harlescott on Fridays from 12.30pm - 3.30pm. With a helping hand from Shropshire RCC to arrange, the group enjoys many activities together including exercise classes, pottery, art, Boccia matches, quizzes, games and numerous cups of tea, chatting and lots of laughter.
If you would like to join this group please email Daphne Simmons or call on 01743 342161.
