Town misses out in Portas share-out
ANOTHER 15 towns are to receive money from the Portas Pilot government scheme to revitalise Britain’s ailing town centres – but there are no Wiltshire towns among them.
Trowbridge has failed in its bid for the second round of money, which also comes with support and advice from Mary Portas, the TV personality famed for turning around failing high street shops.
The 15 new pilot areas are Ashford, Berwick, Braintree, Brighton, Hatfield, Royal Leamington Spa, Liverpool, the Waterloo area of central London, Forest Hill in south London, Tower Hamlets, Loughborough, Lowestoft, Morecambe, Rotherham and Tiverton.
