A LUDLOW town councillor has praised local craftsmen and says that her experience in the town is very different to when she lived in London.

“Until a decade ago, I had lived all my life in Greater London,” said Ms Lyle.

“This year I embarked on a small home improvement programme with expectations, despite having lived in Ludlow for these recent years, that the small jobs I wanted done would have been difficult, if not impossible, to achieve because they were small and that anyone who did accept the work would probably be unreliable ..... as it was in the past ‘down South.’

“I should have known better!”

She said it had been excellent service with a smile
