Title: Marple's Mary Portas Bid
Post by: admin on March 31, 2012, 07:17:21 PM
This rather nice little video has been put together as part of a bid for money to improve Marple District Centre.

Well done to everyone involved.

I see Stockport itself got £100k, according to press release on council website 30-March-12.

That article on the council website is confusing!

The 12 winners of the 'Portas Pilot' won't be announced till May at the earliest (the deadline for entries only passed on Saturday).

The £100,000 seems to have come from the 'High Street Innovation Fund' - I've never heard of that one before.

But at least it's good news they got money from somewhere.
