26 Nov Massive News for Herefordshire!
We have just had some fantastic news: the Government has today come out in support of our long-term project to build a new university focused on engineering in Herefordshire.
The Spending Review delivered by the Chancellor committed to providing dedicated support for the project.
In a letter to Jesse Norman MP, the Chancellor wrote that he hopes “this will allow the institution to start teaching the engineering students of the future that our country needs before the end of the Parliament.”
This could be the most important single development for Herefordshire since the building of Hereford Cathedral. There is still a great deal of work to do. But today’s announcement is a massive step forward, and testimony to the hard work put in by team leaders Karen Usher and David Sheppard, and all involved with the project.
