Should we reverse traffic flow in Ludlow town centre? To me it makes a lot of sense but it is a big project

The enforced closure of King Street seven days a week has brought a stronger focus on traffic management in the town centre. Measures have been put in place to ease some of the short term impacts from displaced traffic, which has been made worse by the continued overnight closure of the A49. I hope we can agree the date for King Street reopening in the next few days. But what do we do in the long term? The Buttercross and Bodenhams are bashed up with depressing regularity. The damage to the Buttercross in this incident has been significant. We need to protect our historic buildings. Our town centre would not be the same without them. There are only a few options. None are perfect. But one idea gaining ground is to reverse the traffic flow in the town centre.

Bromfield to get mobile post office on Thursdays after current post office closes at the end of month

Bromfield Post Office is to close at the end of the month. Thanks to the hard work of the Bromfield parish council clerk, it will be replaced by a temporary mobile service on Thursday mornings. This will also be on the Food Centre site. This is good news for Bromfield and those that travel from surrounding parishes to use the popular post office. The post office will be open on Thursdays only, between 10am and 12pm midday.
