Hooray for Hollywood? Well, to be honest, more likely Falconwood but we can dream. On Monday 4th June the House is being photographed, inside and out, for inclusion on the RBG Film Unit database. The photographer needs to see the House at its best so there may be a little disruption to normal working as we move furniture out of rooms.

31 Oct 2017 - October Newsletter

It has been just over two months since the Emergency General Meeting and the appointment of a new Board of Trustees. As you'll be aware if you are a regular user of the House or were at that meeting, Shrewsbury House Community Association faced a financial crisis that could have led to closure. We're glad, therefore, to tell you that any immediate threat has been averted and for the remainder of this financial year at least we are secure.  Read more here >
