Telford’s golden year

In 2018 Telford marks its 50th birthday, and Telford & Wrekin Council has started to prepare a busy anniversary celebration calendar for next year, which will include festivals, carnivals and events. It’s hoped people from across the community will get involved with the celebrations. As a first step, the council asked people to choose Telford’s 50th anniversary logo and almost 5,000 voted for their favourite. Council leader Cllr Shaun Davies said, “It’s great to see such strong interest this anniversary and the exciting year of celebrations being planned for 2018.

“We’re already attracting private sector funding to support the celebrations which will help attract more visitors here and raise Telford’s profile as a destination, which can only be good for economy and a strong tourism sector. There will also be funding for legacy projects which will help to create a new chapter in the borough’s development.”
The logo chosen by the public was unveiled at the Carnival of Giants in Telford Town Park in July.
