Watch Morecambe’s Portas bid video

THE campaign video for Morecambe’s bid for £100,000 of Government money has been released.

The town is one of hundreds nationwide vying for the Portas Pilot Scheme cash pot to spruce up town centres.

The video stars Morecambe Town Council’s Tracy Brown and Darren Clifford, and Arndale Centre manager John Watkins.

It shows off some of Morecambe’s positives but also explains some of its problems.

The background music is the number one hit Singin’ in the Rain by Mint Royale, whose record label is based in Morecambe.
