Gainsborough's £500k regeneration works start

Improvement works costing £500,000 are due to start in a Lincolnshire town.

The money will be spent improving paving, lighting and signage on Market Street in Gainsborough.

It is the latest phase of a wider £3m scheme to improve the appearance of the town centre. The work is due to be completed by the end of April.

West Lindsey District Councillor Malcolm Parish said the works could attract new investment and make it a more enjoyable experience for shoppers.
