VIP Tickets for a special guest at this years amazing Osfest
A teenager fighting cancer was given a special treat this weekend as a VIP guest as Osfest.
Theo Flint, 16, from Bayston Hill, near Shrewsbury, enjoyed the festival along with his family thanks to a Shropshire company who gave him tickets. The teenager has faced many challenges in his short life and was diagnosed with Neurofibromastosis Type 1 and autism when he was 18 months old. He also suffers from several other challenging conditions. He received a further setback in April last year when he was diagnosed with cancer in the brain. Despite his illness Theo makes the most of opportunities such as being the mascot at a recent Shrewsbury Town football match and going behind the scenes at the club.
The story of his visit to the Greenhous Meadow in the Shropshire Star was read by Steve Hirons, director of Technical Services Shropshire, based in Shrewsbury. The company supplied the two-way radios, PA and CCTV for this year's Osfest event - organised by Carly Jackson – and had been given corporate tickets.
Mr Hirons said: "We decided we'd like to give Theo and his mum VIP tickets for the event so he can have an amazing day with the potential of meeting acts like JLS."
Theo's delighted mother Louisa Butler, said: "Theo is really into his music and can't live without his beats (headphones) so sharing this experience his first festival with him is exciting for us all and as a family we can't thank Technical Services and Osfest enough for giving Theo a reason to smile."
Andy Waters, from Technical Services Shropshire, added: "Theo is looking forward to the fun fair and seeing JLS. The family have now decided to camp for the weekend and Theo can charge his iPhone so he is happy."

On the recommendation of Technical Services (Shropshire) Ltd., a local provider of surveillance system design, installation, and support, the company chose to deploy the Avigilon highdefinition surveillance system for its superior image quality, ease-of-use, and reliability.

TS Shropshire install extensive Avigilon HD CCTV system at Walsall Academy
A 189,000 square foot two-storey facility, Walsall Academy installed a basic analog-based surveillance system when it was first built but found that the image quality and management features could not always meet their needs. “As we identify new areas that require coverage, our needs have naturally evolved – and will no doubt continue to do so over time,” explained Adrain Bowater, Director of Finance at The Walsall Academy .
Limited by a fairly tight budget, the Academy was not in a position to replace its existing analog system entirely, but wanted to improve its system performance and investigative success.
To achieve his performance goals, Bowater chose to upgrade the Academy’s software for better results and turned to the experts at Technical Services (Shropshire) Ltd., a local provider of surveillance system design, installation, and service, who recommended Avigilon. “To make better use of our existing cameras, we chose to upgrade to the Avigilon Control Center Enterprise network video management software (NVMS) platform to enhance system management and dramatically improve image quality, leading to more effective investigations and greater conflict resolution.”
New CCTV camera for Shrewsbury CCTV system in the town at Ditherington
A new permanent £20,000 CCTV camera to combat anti-social behaviour in an area of Shrewsbury is being trialled this week ahead of it going “live”.
The camera, the first of its kind in the county, is being put in place in Ditherington Road in Ditherington.
The camera, which will provide real-time coverage of a row of shops, a road crossing and an estate, replaces a temporary camera that has proved a success.
It is being hooked up to a control centre in the town through a wireless connection, providing coverage of the area 24 hours a day.
The shops have been targeted by vandals in the past and the camera will be used to help prevent further problems. It will also focus on the traffic lights and the nearby estate to help make people feel safer.
David Roberts, environmental enforcement manager at Shropshire Council, said the £20,000 for the camera had been secured through last year’s budget.
He said he hoped it would go “live” either this week or early next week.
Alan Mosley, who represents Ditherington on Shrewsbury Town Council and Shropshire Council, said the permanent camera was “brilliant news”.
“It’s a result of four years of pressure both from myself and others and particularly following demand by residents,” he said.
“The temporary one had a big impact.”
Meanwhile, a CCTV camera which had to be taken down from the site of the Shrewsbury explosion because of work at the scene is to be put back in place.
The camera at Bridge Street in the town centre was on the building where the explosion happened in January but was undamaged by the blast. It is hoped it will be in place in the near future although no date has yet been set.
