Under a Government scheme following on from the Portas Pilot competition, unsuccessful towns had the opportunity fof a £10,000 grant towards one of their unsuccessful Portas Projects if they adopted their local MP as a Town Team Partner and if the MP signed a pledge to support the local Town Team and help it pursue its vision. Andrew George, who has a long track record of supporting the interests of town centres at Westminster, was pleased to demonstrate his support.
The project to benefit from the grant will be the Town Centre Market initiative.
The Town Teams other partners include National Trust (West Cornwall) and The Cornishman.
