I welcome the commencement of the final phase of the scheme to fully dual the A4440 Southern Link Road. This follows an announcement earlier this month that the Government had approved almost £55 million of funding for the project from the Large Local Majors Fund.
I had a very productive meeting with professional footballer David Stockdale and Wayne Oliver to discuss exciting plans for Droitwich Spa FC and Droitwich sport in general. I look forward to doing whatever I can to help them fulfil their exciting plans for football and sport in the town.
My weekend started with a very enjoyable visit to the pancake morning at Evesham Baptist Church. The annual event is held as part of Fairtrade Fortnight and we had some productive discussions over chocolate pancakes about how the Fairtrade initiative can be supported.
I had the pleasure of visiting Buzz Electrical in Evesham on Friday, which was celebrating its 20th anniversary. I particularly enjoyed meeting the team - many of whom had participated in Buzz Electrical's award winning apprenticeship programme.
