Consultation event on new trail guide needs your views

Residents can have their say on a new trail guide for the Teme Valley when it goes on show during a special exhibition.

The guide has been jointly produced by students and staff from Worcester University and Malvern Hills District Council, and features activities including family friendly walking and cycling routes with different ability ratings to choose from and a leisurely tour by car.

The consultation event takes place at Tenbury Library for one week starting on Saturday 30 July where visitors will be able to view the new draft guide as well as information outlining the development of the project. The guide will also soon be available to download on mobile phones and iPads.

The new guide offers the chance to discover the area’s stunning scenery, traditional market towns and idyllic hamlets and villages and people are encouraged to offer their feedback prior to the final launch date on Thursday 18 August. 

The project has been made possible by funding from Malvern Hills AONB Sustainable Development Fund, Malvern Hills District Council and the University of Worcester Graphic Design team led by Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design Andy Stevenson.

Cllr Phil Grove, Leader of Malvern Hills District Council said: “The project has been a positive example of partnership working and it is a great opportunity for people to come along and give us any feedback and information on what we could do to improve the guide.

“We look forward to residents and visitors being able to enjoy the guide and all that the wonderful Teme Valley area has to offer.”
