BANNERS have been installed along Victoria Street in Grimsby as part of an initiative to brighten up the town centre.

North East Lincolnshire Enough is Enough action group are behind the initiative, which has been supported by North East Lincolnshire Council and it’s regeneration partner ENGIE, along with sponsorship from some local businesses.

Park Ward Councillor Daniel Westcott has been involved in the project to brighten up Victoria Street from the very start, which has been significantly delayed by Covid.

Cllr Westcott said: “This is a great example of North East Lincolnshire Council and Engie working well with local businesses and a community group and I have to say that the end product looks fantastic.

A big thank you needs to go out to the design team, all 24 sponsors for their support and patience in very difficult times, along with Gary Swan at Riverside Print & Display and J McCann, for stepping in, making such a good job of the banners and fitting them.”

Council Leader, Councillor Philip Jackson, said: “I’m really pleased that we could help Cllr Westcott and the members of Enough is Enough to make this happen.

“We’re committed to working with proactive members of our communities to make improvements to our area. This is about working together to make North East Lincolnshire a nicer, more attractive place for people to visit.

“I’m also grateful to our local businesses for getting involved and sponsoring the initiative.”

The banners will come down briefly for the Christmas lights, then go back up early in 2022.
