That this House welcomes Shropshire Day which falls on 23 February and celebrates the county’s magnificent heritage; praises the natural beauty of the area from the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the expanses of glorious farmland and the meres and the mosses, all of which host an abundance of varied wildlife; commemorates the county’s rich history of Iron Age hillforts, Roman ruins, medieval castles, heritage railways and canals; pays tribute to the farmers who care for the outstanding natural environment across the county, fuel the local economy, and put quality Shropshire produce on our plates; applauds the local businesses who keep market towns and highstreets bustling with trade; and comes together to admire the strong community spirit which is characteristic of Salopians.
