Market revamp hits cash problems

Powis Hall Market

The revamp of a Shropshire market hall by top designers has run into funding difficulties.

Oswestry's Powis Hall Market won a national competition in The Times newspaper to be made over by Sir Terence Conran and Tara Bernerd.

Oswestry Town Council, which owns the 1960s building, agreed to match money put forward by the contest organisers.

But the £50,000 it found has proved to be not enough and it now has to help find another £100,000.

Mydeco, the group behind the redevelopment, said there was more work to do than expected.
