Move is mistake

I HAVE lived in Upton since 1969, a really nice vibrant little town.

Recently we have been affected by repairs to the bridge and walls built on the river front – this has had an impact on our small shops, which we are lucky to still have.

Now our tourist information centre is being relocated to the Heritage Centre.

This is a bad mistake.

It is , at present, in a perfect position for visitors – which we are dependent on in the summer – to see on the corner of Church Street and High Street.

Visitors coming from Hanley Road car park see it at once. If relocated they will have to cross our busy High Street and retrace their steps through the churchyard. A lot won’t bother.

LAVENDER BEARD,
Please do not think I am saying that what you say is wrong. My wife and I have been visiting Upton – on – Severn for several years now we usually visit twice per year, and never had to use the Tourist information at any time during our visits. We think the flood defences are a vast improvement, we did have our eyes opened very wide when we saw the brightly Yellow Painted Bridge. Other than that, we always drive up the Main Street and park on the free car park. We enjoy the walk down shopping as we go. We have found that most shop proprietors, or assistants are always willing to help you find the right shop if they do not have what you are looking for. I like to visit the iron mongers which is situated on the corner Old Street and New Street, I think the shop is called Hayward’s? P.S. the car park we always use is at the other end of Old Street opposite an old Church.
We must admit your comments about Upton on Severn are exactly right.
