Shipston scoops regional top spot in best places to live
Local readers of The Sunday Times newspaper were recently greeted with news that Shipston has been voted by the paper as the top place to live in the Midlands.
Citing the Shipston Proms, Wool Fair, choice of pubs and independent shops among the attractions, the paper chose Shipston above other local towns as the regional winner for the first time. There was even a mention of the forthcoming ‘yarn bombing’ at the Wool Fair as well as a promotion of the dates for this year’s Proms (see page 7 for more details).
Mayor, Ronnie Murphy, said: “It’s always wonderful to read positive things about our town and it is great to see our community, shops and other businesses getting national recognition.”
