Mablethorpe could bid to be ‘pilot town’ in Mary Portas project

COULD Mablethorpe be a ‘pilot town’ for TV shopping guru Mary Portas’ latest project?

Towns can bid for the chance to receive up to £100,000 to be part of the project which will test December’s Mary Portas report and trial some innovative solutions to helping high streets prosper again.

Mablethorpe Area Partnership intend to apply to become a pilot town, and are looking to secure match funding from local businesses should their bid be successful.

This would require a written promise to pay a sum to help out.

Applications must be submitted to Town Manager Karen Froggatt by March 28, to find out more call Karen on 01507 474438.
