Extra funding for Market Rasen after success of 'Portas Pilot' scheme

A Lincolnshire town that has received support from retail guru Mary Portas to improve its high street is set to receive extra funding.

Market Rasen is one of seven towns, along with Rotherham, to get a share of £1 million from the government. The towns have been chosen for how they've implemented innovative ideas to transform the high street. A market to celebrate their achievements is being held in Market Rasen.
