A BOOKLET aimed at helping new families moving to Wem has been released.

The latest edition of the Town of Wem Welcomes You annual booklet is now available for those that are moving into Wem and the local area.

These booklets can be found in the Town Hall, library, cafes and local estate agents.

Phil Moyse, chairman of the Welcome to Wem community group said: "We try to add different information for every edition having recently added a Town map, shop map and this year we have four pages of Wem Rural.

"This booklet is packed full of information about Wem and Wem Rural including some history, and also places to visit in Shropshire. There are plenty of pictures, contacts for local clubs, restaurants, sports etc.

"We started this booklet in 2016 ordering 200 initially, this has now grown to 500 copies such is the popularity of the booklet."
