After the trouble our High Streets shops have had with the Councils ill-judged road restrictions and closures, Bill Wiggin MP is delighted that Historic England have announced that Leominster will be receiving money through the High Streets Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) programme to aid local economic recovery.

Bill commented: “This is just what we need and I am delighted that Historic England have made £1.8 million of government funding available for the revitalisation of Leominster’s high street.

Leominster is a beautiful town with a wealth of important historical buildings and our main shopping streets need to reflect this.

I hope this money will go a long way towards both restoring and preserving the heritage of our town Leominster for residents, visitors and future generations.”
