Final public consultation meeting over refurbishment of town’s River Welland

Residents are being invited to a public meeting next month to hear more about the £500,000 renovation of the River Welland in Market Harborough.

The stretch of the river through Harborough has been greatly improved over the past two years through a £500,000 project headed by the Welland Rivers Trust.

The trust is holding its final community open evening at The Angel Hotel in High Street, from 7pm to 9pm on Wednesday, May 6. The trust wants to hear people’s opinions about the project and its design team will present some brief displays on wildlife and habitat recovery, management and maintenance, and sustainability.

There will also be a short film about the community’s involvement with the project and a question and answer session.
