Update regarding the Town Council's bid for the Meadows:

“Wirksworth Town Council would like to thank everybody for their pledges and cheques. These have been added to the sum already allocated from the Council’s operating reserves to make the total to be submitted as the Council’s sealed bid to purchase the Meadows. At present the amount of the bid and level of donations is commercially sensitive.

The closing date for bids is next Monday 11 November and we hope to know whether our bid has been successful within a week. The council will make a statement after the closure of the bid submissions about the amount of the bid and the level of donations.

As soon as we have formal confirmation of the outcome of the bid, good or bad, the Council will provide an update.

We remain optimistic about our chances of success.”

Cllr Andy Jordan, Mayor of Wirksworth
