This is great news. There is a meme going around that Ludlow is out of action due to the floods. Businesses have reported cancelled bookings. But, despite the devastation to dozens of homes and flooding of businesses, our town is trading as normal. We remain the feisty Ludlow we have always been.

Trading is never great at this time of the year. We are waiting for the Easter boost to get our Marches town boosted into the high season. But everyone I have spoken to says footfall, which means  people spending money, is down after Storm Dennis.

Shropshire Council has now agreed to free park and ride travel on Minsterley Buses (722) for all Thursdays in March. Thursday is a great market day. On 12 March and 26 March, we have Local to Ludlow markets. Our everyday markets are also great.

Join us by driving to the park and ride on the Eco Park on the edge of town. SY8 1ES. Buses every 30 minutes at 15 minutes past and 15 minutes to the hour.

Tell everyone #ludlowisopen. We look forward to seeing you.
