Ironbridge makeover

Sixteen shops in Ironbridge are being repainted in colours that reflect the heritage of the town. The initiative complements the council’s Empty Retail Unit Grant scheme, which is helping new businesses to open in Ironbridge, Wellington, Oakengates and Dawley.

Urban Country Girl on the High Street is one of the first shops in Ironbridge to receive a makeover.
Michala Williams from Urban Country Girl says, “The next six weeks in Ironbridge are going to be very exciting seeing the visual changes, which will help strengthen all the businesses in Ironbridge. This is an excellent scheme funded by the council.

“Now the bridge looks amazing and soon the whole town will too. Even though it is not possible to refresh every shop front, the collective impact will transform the town and encourage more people to visit the many independent retailers here in Ironbridge.”
