Ross-on-Wye is to receive a £10,000 cash boost.

After missing out on becoming a Mary Portas 'Pilot' town in her scheme to rejuvinate the nation’s high streets, Ross was invited to try and become a Town Team partner – and the bid proved successful.

As well as the regeneration money, business leaders in the town will also have access to a network of advisors, direct mentoring and visits from a range of retail experts.

A meeting involving the team’s partners will be held in due course to look at where the £10,000 will be spent.
