Community Building

Following the very successful public meeting at the Town Hall on 18th July 2017, residents have been asked to consider the following:- "Do you think Pershore would benefit from a new Community Hall"? If "yes", do you believe the hall should be a) A new build construction, giving a hall of 180 sq metres on the field off Defford Road or b) The building of a first floor at the Town Hall, giving 120 sq metres, in the centre of town and c) Do you believe that the Town Council should use New Homes Bonus towards the cost of the building?

Please email your responses to townclerk@pershore-tc.gov.uk by 1st August 2017.

If you have further questions, there will be a Community Building open surgery at the Town Hall on Saturday 29th July 2017 from 10 o'clock until noon.

Memorial Stained Glass Window Appeal

Pershore Town Council has decided to commission a stained glass window to be installed at the cemetery chapel, as a permanent memorial to those who served at home and abroad in whatever way, to ensure the future freedom of not only the people of this country, but of Pershore in particular.

The window, which is to be funded mainly by public subscription and fundraising, will depict images from the First and Second World Wars, as well as showing Pershore at peace, today.

Are you interested in sponsoring part of the window? Application packs are available from the Town Hall or the Library. Enquiries can also be made to the Town Clerk at townclerk@pershore-tc.gov.uk
