Chemical spill training exercise moves to Ruyton XI Towns
The venue for a large scale training exercise by Shropshire firefighters involving a simulated chemical spillage has been moved from Oswestry to Ruyton X1 Towns.
The routine training event was set to go ahead at the Cheese factory at Maesbury Road Industrial Estate in Oswestry this Thursday evening (October 8).
But due to work commitments at the factory, the venue has been changed to Pentons storage yard at Ruyton X1 Towns.
Organiser Ashley Brown, a Retained Support Officer at Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, thanked Pentons for stepping in at the last minute.

Fire safety is child's play for Alice
She may be just six-years-old but Alice Wynn is a true "bright spark" after applying to her local fire station for a fire safety check at her Shropshire home.
The year 2 pupil decided to fill in an official form requesting the free visit from firefighters after picking up details from the Outreach Vehicle operated by fire prevention officers at the Oswestry Show.
Alice, who is six months away from her seventh birthday, read the fire prevention information booklet from cover to cover before writing her name, address, postcode and phone number onto the form.
