Councillor Anne Hingley, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Well-being and Housing said:

“The history of cherry picking in Bewdley is fascinating and deserves recognition. This event is becoming more and more popular every year and attracts a large crowd. It is fantastic that historical aspects of Bewdley are celebrated.”
