Bill Wiggin, MP for North Herefordshire, has reacted with delight at the news that Leominster is set to receive £2 million as part of a record government investment aimed to breathe new life into historic buildings on the nation’s high streets.

The £95 million funding will be used to revitalise 69 historic high streets across England – the biggest ever single investment into the UK’s built heritage.

Commenting on the announcement, Bill said:

“I very much welcome this biggest ever investment into our built heritage. Leominster is a wonderful and historic town with many excellent independent retailers. I am sure this money will help to benefit businesses, support our much-loved buildings and help to make this community an even more attractive place to live, work and visit.”
