It’s full steam ahead to a better, brighter town for all

EDITOR – Just a quick thank you to all the Market Rasen businesses who’ve put out the flags and made such an effort to improve the appearance of our town.

As one of the first 12 Portas Pilot winners, all eyes are on us with the local TV media almost weekly visitors.

Special mention to Rasen DIY for their window boxes and Spring, The George and Peter Rhodes for working so hard on improving their shop fronts.

Operation Icecream has made great progress and a heritage palette of colours has been agreed with WLDC.

If any retailer or resident is thinking of a repaint or refresh and would like to know how to tie in with this colour scheme for listed or non-listed buildings please email .

Once we have a board of directors (after June 26) we will be working very closely with the town council, WLDC, LCC and Network Rail to create a truly stunning and well-maintained town we can all be proud of.
