MP wants Mary Portas to tackle Kimberley

BROXTOWE MP Anna Soubry wants Kimberley to become one of the towns given a makeover by television presenter Mary Portas.

Anna Soubry said Kimberley had ‘seen better days’ and it would be ideal for one of the 12 towns nationwide being rejuvenated in a project by Ms Portas.

The Government has stumped up £1m to fund the initiative.

Anna has written to Kimberley Town Council urging councillors to apply.
