Evesham Town Council announces Town Celebration

Evesham Town Council is delighted to announce it will be hosting an event – Love Evesham - in the Market Place this Spring to mark three years since the launch of the Town Plan.

Introduced in 2015, the Evesham Town Plan aimed to improve the lives of some 23,000 residents living in and around Evesham – following the coming together of 1,200 community members who shared their thoughts, hopes and dreams for the future of Evesham.

A Town Plan Committee was set up and it has been working hard to protect the town’s heritage, increasing the range of retail and food outlets in the centre, whilst improving the local environment - positioning Evesham as a welcoming, picturesque and interesting place to visit and live in.

Set to take place on Saturday 14th April, the Love Evesham event will highlight the successes of the Town Plan to date.  Members of the Town Plan Committee and Project Leaders will be on hand for members of the community to meet and discuss the projects in hand.

The event will also provide the opportunity for Evesham's independent businesses to showcase their offering, together with stalls, crafts and activities for children, promising an enjoyable day out for all members of the family.

Richard Jones,  Evesham Town  Mayor confirmed: "Since the Town Plan was launched in 2015, the Town Plan Committee has worked extremely hard to act with the local community through a range of different and exciting projects, such as the creation of a greener and more sustainable town,  supporting the Evesham Abbey project, working with Wychavon District Council on ‘Enlighten’, a project to create a trail of floodlit historic buildings in the town, and the development of a network of cycle and footpaths in and around the town."

"We are, therefore, extremely excited about the Love Evesham event and feel this will provide us with an excellent opportunity to showcase what has been achieved over the past three years, whilst enabling our local community to really celebrate and feel proud to be part of our town."

In the build-up to the event, Project Leaders will be working hard to increase awareness of their achievements to date, current proposals and future plans, whilst encouraging members of the local community to become more involved in the different projects by becoming Town Plan Ambassadors.

Richard  added added: "The Town Plan belongs to the people of Evesham and depends largely on residential support. Therefore, the Council welcomes residents to show interest in the key initiatives, and to put themselves forwards as Town Plan Ambassadors during our Spring celebration."
