Chester – Shrewsbury Rail Partnership community rail officer work recognised

10 Oct, 2018
Sheila Dee of Chester-Shrewsbury Rail Partnership, has been recognised for her commitment to the Oswestry transport network.

The women of Oswestry, past and present, are being celebrated in a major heritage exhibition.

The 101 Wall of Women recognises women past and present, from all walks of life, who have had an influence on the town.

As part of the national Heritage Open Days, towns and cities were urged to celebrate half a dozen local women who had made a difference to their area.

Organisers wanted to take this a step further and set out to find more than 100 influential women.

In a statement, they commented: “This year’s national Heritage Open Days theme is Extraordinary Women and we have and have had many of these in Oswestry”.

“Women have always been there but the perception of women in history is that they have not been valued. Oswestry has always been guided by women and it’s time we started celebrating them.”

As community rail officer for the Chester-Shrewsbury Rail Partnership, Sheila Dee was selected for her commitment to the Oswestry transport network.
