MalvernTrail information pages have moved to a more mobile friendly WordPress format from its original style. Some links will still need checking at summer 2015 – use the navigation bar or the back button if you hit old pages. Note: we’ve left some of the photo albums alone.
The events listings are for locals and visitors alike. News items appear here sporadically, also check local social media reporting on News Trail (can be slow to load). See below for the latest news and events.
Contributions are welcome – see the About page.
