THE RELAUNCH of Evesham’s Liberal Democrat branch was set to gather pace last night when members elected a chairman and executive committee.

An agenda for action was laid out at the meeting at Wallace House and Lib Dems Worcestershire Chair Coun Margaret Rowley said: “After an inspirational launch with House of Lords peer Baroness Lorely Burt our members are keen to be an action force to improve facilities and services for Evesham and its surrounding villages.

“They also want to discuss ideas and develop action plans with other locals concerned about making the Vale of Evesham a better environment in which to work and live.”

A GUIDED historical and archaeological walk is taking place in Pershore at the end of March.

The 4.5 mile circular walk is being run by Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Three Counties Traditional Orchards project.

It will start and finish at Pershore Abbey and is free and open to all ages.

It is being led by an archaeologist, exploring the history of Pershore and archaeological sites in the surrounding area. Pershore has had a fascinating history since it was founded during the Anglo-Saxon era and archaeological investigations around the town over the last few decades have revealed evidence of earlier Roman and prehistoric settlement.

Unfortunately the walk on March 24 from 1-4pm is not accessible for people using wheelchairs.

To book a place or for more information e-mail Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service at [email protected] or call 01905 7663352.
