Love Maryport Town team in running for national award

A team which literally loves their town has been shortlisted for a national award.

The Love Maryport Town team has been picked as a finalist in the ‘town team of the year’ category in the 2014 National Partnership Awards, which celebrate the positive contribution people make to their towns and cities.

The Maryport team, managed by Allerdale council, has introduced a Love Maryport reward scheme to promote independent businesses, set up a website and phone app, organised street cleans and repaired and repainted street furniture.

The team, which involves more than 40 local organisations and people, will find out how they have done at the award presentation in Dundee on June 26. They are up against Buxton, Cookstown and Sevenoaks.

Michael Heaslip, of Allerdale council, said: “Maryport’s Town Team is thriving and their work has been creating a real buzz locally. They are a great example of how a fairly small group working together can really make a big difference to the community.

“It is only right that their ongoing efforts should be acknowledged at a national level.”
