Over 100 people attended a lively meeting of Malvern Hills District Council’s Northern Area Development Control Committee at Tenbury High School on March 7th, when Malvern Hills District Council approved Tesco's application to build a Superstore in Tenbury Wells. The split in the town over the proposal was highlighted by one of Tenbury's District Councillors (Phil Grove) putting forward that the application should be refused, while Tony Penn, the other District Councillor for Tenbury Wells, suggested that permission should be granted.

The moment shopkeepers and local residents were waiting for arrived on Friday March 9th, when Teme Bridge opened. During the two months it was closed, many local businesses saw a big drop in takings, but the mild winter weather helped minimise problems and Tenbury is now poised to benefit from initiatives that were put in place because of the closure. One of the best-known is Tenbury's Grand Windfall Loyalty Scheme. This runs until the end of June and with a top prize of £1000 each month, it provides a real bonus for somebody who has supported local
businesses. To mark the reopening of the bridge, there is a new "Golden Apple" draw - see page 4 for details. This runs alongside the "Grand Windfall", so when you shop you can benefit from both schemes! A range of other initiatives aimed at bringing people into Tenbury will also continue, including promoting the town through local papers, radio, magazines, websites and social media. A new Local Guide is also planned, to help bring more tourists into Tenbury, with publication being planned for April.
Co-op Store Fire
The Co-op store on Bromyard Road in Tenbury Wells is expected to be closed for several weeks, following a serious fire. Tenbury Wells Fire Station's website shows that the call was logged at 10.44pm on March 8th and that there was a severe fire in the supermarket, it was heavily smoke-logged and the first crew in attendance immediately requested four fire appliances to attend. This was followed by a further

two later on in the incident. The report adds that there was a severe fire in bakery area, the entire building was severely damaged by fire, heat and smoke, and the adjoining flat was also smoke-logged, with fire crews evacuating residents. As well as Tenbury's appliances, fire engines were also called to the scene from Leominster and Bromyard.
THE LOCAL CIDER
Foxwhelp, Kingston Black, Brown Snout and Tom Putt are just some of the traditional Teme Valley cider apple varieties skilfully blended to create Robinsons Flagon Cider. It's medium dry, variably hazy and gently sparkling to retain that delicious flavour: cider just as it should be.
Pressed by the Robinsons on their farm at Little Hereford near Tenbury, the quantities produced are limited and you won't find Robinsons Cider much beyond the great local pubs in our immediate area. For a full list of stockists go to the website because Robinsons Cider is well worth seeking out. Enjoy it.
