MP supports group's campaign
STRATFORD MP Nadhim Zahawi recently visited a new outreach group in Shipston for adults with learning disabilities and autism.
The project is run by a charity called Grapevine and is based at Rosedale - a supported living scheme in Shipston (Mencap).
The people who live at Rosedale identified things they wish to change in their local area. They identified they need a crossing outside the building as it is at the end of a busy and fast road and there is no safe place for them to cross the road.
The group also identified a lack of public transport in the evening which means currently their social lives are limited to day time events only.
Mr Zahawi was invited to the group session to listen their concerns
and agreed that a crossing would make the area safer and more accessible to all in the community. He agreed to take the agenda and the groups concerns back to the local councillor. He also agreed to contact the bus company to see if additional services could be provided during the evening.
Nadhim Zahawi will be visiting the group in January with an update on what progress has been made.
