The Young High Street Challenge

Jessica Goodwin led an ideas forum for regenerating parts of Telford with some members of the Third and Fourth Form. The challenge is part of Telford and Wrekin Council’s Pride in Our Community High Street Fund and culminates in an event next year with two awards available for the best ideas.

The pupils discussed and developed their suggestions to improve and rejuvenate the high streets of Dawley, Newport, Wellington, Madeley, Oakengates and Ironbridge; the winners of this award will see their plans brought to life. The second award is for a redesign of Wellington Market to help attract more customers.
