Meet the board

The independent Towns Fund board (called the #StrongerHereford board) is backed by Herefordshire Council and has been established to lead this work locally.

The #StrongerHereford board is a blend of people from private, public and community sectors who all have Herefordshire in their heart. We’re a mix of parents, students, educators, business owners, employers and employees, creatives and politicians.
