It is Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2013 is “Communities together: Build a Bridge” asking you to remember and stand by those who were forced to live through these experiences. We want you to honour those communities which were destroyed in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

Age Action Alliance - Coming together to improve the lives of older people

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service is now a partner in the Age Action Alliance along with dozens of organisations from across the voluntary, private and public sectors who are coming together to celebrate the lives of older people and address the challenges of our ageing society.

The Age Action Alliance was launched on the 30 September to coincide with Older People’s Day celebrations and will work together to improve the lives of older people and help transform communities into better places to grow older.

White Ribbon Day

Firefighters and staff from Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service are supporting the County Council's White Ribbon Day today (Wednesday) to raise awareness about violence against women.

Area Manager Mike Ablitt said that West Mercia Police respond to more than 2,500 reported incidents of violence against women each year with more cases going unreported.

"The Fire Service wants to show its solidarity with this campaign and help raise the public's awareness about what is a very real problem in society."
