Through the ages Wem has provided a centre for local trade and this tradition continues today. The High Street is home to many different independent shops, high street chains and local businesses and the weekly market takes place every Thursday in the Town Hall. With a thriving friendly local community Wem is jam-packed full of different social organisations and events throughout the year including WI, church and youth groups and a young farmers club just to name a few, as well as the celebrated annual carnival which the town hosts every summer. Wem offers a variety of dining establishments, hotels and public houses and has useful transport links via road and rail. The town benefits from having a well-supported Railway Station with regular main line trains to Shrewsbury and Crewe throughout the day as well as an extensive network of bus routes in and around the town and the surrounding area. Educationally the town is home to the well regarded St Peters Primary School and Thomas Adams High School and Sixth Form College.
