Palace invite for one of Shrewsbury’s leading Estate Agent and Chartered Surveyor – Roger Parry FRICS

The lead figure at one of Shrewsbury’s top Estate Agents, Roger Parry & Partners, visited Buckingham Palace last month after receiving an invitation to attend a Royal Garden Party.

Roger Parry, with his wife Christine, was invited to a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in celebration of the coronation of King Charles III. Roger was representing Shropshire Rural Support for which he has been a trustee volunteer for many years. Last year, SRS were honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services. SRS consists of a group of unpaid volunteers who dedicate time to help people suffering with mental health, loneliness or financial issues throughout Shropshire and the Welsh borders. For further information, please visit the SRS website where you can also view the new leaflet, ‘Feeling Stressed?’.

Andrew Bebb is the Chairman and the inspiration behind a new initiative for people to attend Shrewsbury livestock market on specific Tuesdays where they can discuss issues with the Shropshire Council Outreach team. This also provides an opportunity to have your blood pressure checked for those who wish. On a monthly basis, SRS have introduced a Butty Van meeting which is proving to be a great success and welcomes all to attend. They also offer confidential support relating to families and businesses and can be contacted on the secure line 0300 123 2825. SRS are always looking for extra volunteers to help with such an important cause.

Roger Parry said, “It was an absolute privilege to attend Buckingham Palace on such a timely occasion. It was an amazing experience. I feel very lucky to have been able to represent the charity in this manner. I think it is fantastic recognition for the amazing work that has been taking place across our region for many years by many unrecognised people.” 

The Roger Parry & Partners business has a strong presence in the residential, agricultural and commercial property sectors and has a highly successful planning and development team offering a complete service backed by a wealth of knowledge and experience.
