Crew’s birthday celebration


Established in 1994 as a way to educate children in the Oswestry and Shrewsbury area about safety and essential life skills, the Crucial Crew will be celebrating 25 years of their dedicated service this summer at the British Ironworks near Oswestry.

Each year in June, the Crucial Crew run a special two-week event where over 1,500 children from around 50 primary schools take part in a range of social awareness activities, safety training, and life skills presentations conducted by industry professionals and volunteers.

The Crucial Crew aim to teach these important skills to children, usually focusing on their transition from primary to secondary school. The event covers a range of topics including drug awareness, internet abuse and cyber bullying and stranger danger, as well as road safety, first aid, and recycling, among many others.
