A PROFESSOR from Tokyo made a special visit to Bewdley as part of a trip to see examples of community-led projects.
Shinji Aoki ,of Toyo University,met up with Peter Miller of the Bewdley Development Trust to visit the recently reopened St George’s Hall during his visit.
While there, he discussed ways in which communities could be encouraged to become more involved in their towns and neighbourhoods.
Mr Aoki, who is from the university’s faculty of sociology, also stopped off at Uncllys Farm to learn about how volunteers are helping with the management of the Wyre Forest andthe work of the Community Land Trust, which brings together landowners,volunteers and funders, to restore the traditional landscape of the Wyre.
As a result of the professor’s visit, a summer school for students from Toyo University is being planned for next summer.
