Walks and Talks

The Society periodically arranges walks on different parts of the Shropshire Union network and earns fees from talks to local groups. If you are interested in getting involved with either of these activities please contact

Fundraising, Publicity and Admin

The Society is run entirely by volunteers and much organisation is required behind the scenes to run the activities and the Society itself and publish Cuttings, the Society’s quarterly magazine. If this interests you or you have something to offer please contact

Young People and Corporate

The Society’s activities offer a wide range of great opportunities for young people to learn new skills, work towards awards, such as the DofE, and develop their personal statement. We tailor the involvement around personal preferences and interests, in compliance with our Safeguarding, Equal Opportunities and other Society policies.
