Free parking and free Park & Ride #Dryonbridge day

Ironbridge is the place to be this Sunday as we support the town to get back to business after the devastating floods. There’s lots going on with all businesses open and a fundraising event at The Malt House pub.

The day starts with Sunday Brunch with live music from Jen North at the Green Wood Cafe.

From 12 noon The Malt House will be a hive of entertainment with live music, children’s activities and the chance to get up close and personal with snakes and other reptiles. Then at 3pm get ready to place your bids at the live auction. All proceeds will go to those businesses worst affected by the flooding to help them recover.

As you wander along the Wharfage and High Street look out for Chase and Marshall from the Paw Patrol and performers from Leo’s Loco Circus.

Ironbridge is full of independent shops where you can taste the finest gin, pick up a world famous pork pie, treat yourself to some Ruby Shoos or a vintage Barbour jacket, and browse through classic books and beautiful homeware. Then enjoy afternoon tea or a pint of real ale.

The park and ride will be providing a free service between 10am and 5pm and parking in council car parks will be free all day.

Local ward councillor Carolyn Healy said “the recent floods have had a major impact on all businesses in the Gorge, not just those with actual flood damage. We want visitors to return to the town and help local businesses get back on their feet. Every pound spent locally support these small businesses and their employees. Huge thanks to Telford Live for coming up with such a great idea to help support the town, and to Becky and Karl from the Malt House for their fundraising efforts in support of neighbouring businesses.”
