Pump Rooms Reopen

The Tenbury Wells historic pump rooms were reopened today by Mayor Cllr & Mrs Bob Martin.

In his opening speech the Mayor paid tribute to the role played by the partnership between Advantage West Midlands and Malvern Hills District Council.

He went on to say that he hoped this opening ceremony would be symbolic of a new Tenbury.

Following the opening ceremony the Pump Rooms were opened to the public for tours, including areas which had not previously been available until the Malvern Hills DC office had been vacated on Friday.

It later emerged that although the rooms were now available for hire, the restoration had not been completed, with many of the walls remaining very damp and undecorated. The restoration to the floor appears to be incomplete. As this is a grade 2* listed building the Civic Society have asked the conservation officer to investigate.
