About Us

The Shrewsbury and Shropshire Waterways and Leisure Group is made up of a committee of volunteers.

Our primary aim is to ensure that by working in partnership with other agencies, the river is well maintained and cared for so that it can be enjoyed as a safe and pleasurable environment by the local community and visitors to the town for many years to come.

For the 2020 Shrewsbury River Festival, we have teamed up with Shropshire Wildlife Trust who have also invested time and money into making this year’s festival even better, and more environmentally and community-focused.

We meet up regularly – on the Sabrina Boat, at The Armoury, or anywhere that will have us! – in the months running up to the event. We are always on the lookout for more volunteers – if you’d like to help out, please contact us at info@shrewsburyriverfestival.co.uk.
