• recognising creativity in our towns

    Creativity, imagination, music, arts & culture were central to our St Helens 150 celebrations this year.

    A ‘Town of Culture’ award would give St Helens town & our wider borough the chance to put ourselves forward to attract further investment & build on our already impressive cultural offer.

    It’s a great idea by my colleague Yvette Cooper and I’ve joined MPs from the Labour Towns group in supporting this initiative.
