A narrow Shrewsbury street, described as one of the town’s most dangerous roads for pedestrians and vehicles, has secured approval to switch permanently to one-way thanks to the campaigning work of residents and the area’s Green Party councillor Julian Dean.
I've lived in Shrewsbury for most of my life so I'm well acquainted with the area and its people. I now work locally as a web developer.
I’m Chris Lemon and I am delighted to have been chosen as the Green Party’s candidate for Shrewsbury Town Council in the Radbrook ward at the May local elections. I moved to Shrewsbury to train as a Registered General Nurse and after qualifying in 1996 I worked for five years mostly on the Oncology Ward at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. I first lived in the Nurses Home on the old South Hospital site, which is now occupied by housing within the ward, and later lived on Ravenscourt Walk, also within Radbrook ward.
I have been part of the small team working hard in Radbrook for three years. I truly appreciate the sense of community and campaigning spirit of people in Radbrook Green, Rad Valley, Darwin’s Walk and Bowbrook Meadows, finding inspiring individuals and groups throughout the ward concerned with many issues that we have been privileged to support.
I was present on election night when Julian Dean became the first Green Party councillor in Shrewsbury. The promise of that evening has been fulfilled many times over with his participation at both councils over the last four years. It would be a huge step forward if he had fellow Greens working alongside him after the election, and I look forward very much to working with him on Shrewsbury Town Council if I am elected in May.

My roots in Radbrook go back a long way having lived in the area for many of my childhood years. I lived on Ravenscourt Walk whilst I trained at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, where I also later worked as a Registered General Nurse, and I still have friends and family living in the ward.
