Shropshire Council’s Outdoor Partnerships Team are celebrating the results of a successful grant application to the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). The project will improve the Visitor Centre at Severn Valley Country Park (SVCP), strengthening the site’s position as a top local tourist destination. The new building will feature a larger visitor space, plus an improved café. Construction starts early this year, with temporary facilities in place as the centre closes from Saturday 2 February; the new facilities should be open by June.
Cllr Dave Tremellen of Highley says, “This an amazing opportunity to upgrade the centre and create an amazing space in which to share stories of local wildlife and history with visitors of all ages, school children and groups.”
