Shrewsbury Culture Day on Saturday

4 July 2013

Club help to promote Shrewsbury's Culture Day

Shrewsbury Town have helped promote Shrewsbury's Culture Day which takes places in The Square on Saturday.
 
Martin James, the club's community development manager, spent time with Year Five pupils from the town's Mount Pleasant Primary School.
 
They have been working with Shropshire Council and Shrewsbury Sixth Form College to help organise and promote the event which will take pace from noon until 4pm. 
 
"The posters were to show their understanding of cultural differences and how we should all celebrate each other’s culture," said Martin, who will present Lucia Malvone, who came up with the winning design, with her prize of a family ticket to a Greenhous Meadow match at a school assembly next week.  
 
Steve Cunningham, Chair of Shrewsbury Action Against Racism, added: “It’s been brilliant to work with Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and Mount Pleasant School in the build-up to the eighth Cultural Diversity Day in Shrewsbury. 
 
"We think that it’s really important to have events like this in the town to bring people together to celebrate what we have in common and the diversity that exists in the town.”
