said: "The turnout at the public information event was
very encouraging and showed the level of interest people have about
improving things for their town. I'd like to say thank-you to
everyone that attended and expressed their views.
"It's important that anyone interested
understands they still have until March 31 to pass on their
thoughts on how this significant investment in the area should be
spent. This can be done by filling in the simple form on the
consultation leaflets available at various venues around the town
or by simply logging on to www.worcestershire.gov.uk/bewdleyscheme.
The views of residents and businesses really count so I'd encourage
everyone to have their say."
