BBC H&W talk to the #StrongerHereford board

If you were listening to BBC Hereford & Worcester this week, then you might have heard us on the morning bulletins and on the evening show.

Lauren Rogers (Rural Media), Julian Vaughan (Green Dragon Hotel) and Ruth Parry (Simple Design Works) were interviewed by BBC journalist Nicola Goodwin outside Hereford Cathedral.

Like many people, Nicola was intrigued by who we are, what we’re doing and the ambitious and crazy ideas we’ve received so far.

What is the Town Deal?

Town Deals are part of the government’s plan to level up all regions by boosting productivity, skills and living standards.  

What do you need?

We need big ideas and ambitious suggestions! It might be about sustainable transport, culture and heritage, or regeneration. It’s all about thinking how we can create thriving communities.

How do I get involved?

There will be lots of events throughout the city where you can speak to the team or you can simply complete a survey.

What happens to the survey results?

The responsibility of the board is to engage with people who live, work and visit Hereford. Those ideas will be taken to Government in January 2021 to ‘strike a deal’ to fund local projects.
