WHAT fantastic news that Kidderminster is to have a new rail station fit for the future! We are fortunate that Worcestershire Local Enterprise Project (WLEP) is supporting this improvement. According to its website WLEP is responsible for distributing 68 million Euros of EU funding to such local schemes. We have not been told often enough how much our communities benefit from belonging to the EU, resulting in the backward-looking referendum decision which some still maintain was based upon full information. Well done Europe! Leave voters should think again before it is too late.
