Town Team help and £10,000 for Boston

Boston has been awarded £10,000 Government cash to help boost its town centre.

The submission for Town Team Partner status was made by Boston BID following a failure to gain cash under the Mary Portas scheme.

Making the Town Teams announcement Mark Prisk MP, Minister for Housing, said: "Becoming a Town Team Partner is our commitment that no town who applied to be a Portas Pilot would be left behind. By putting your Town Teams forward as Town Team Partners, you have ensured that real progress can be made."

Boston will now be able access the support package the Association of Town Centre Management has prepared for Town Team Partners. It aims to promote shared learning and best practice with the help of retail experts and other town teams from across the country.

Each Town Team Partner will get £10,000 to help towards putting some of their plans into action to revitalise their high streets.
