Belper visit for new Minister

High Streets Minister, Marcus Jones visited Belper earlier in the month to meet shop owners and see how whole community involvement led the town to be crowned Market Town and Winner of Winners champions in last year’s Great British High Street Awards.

The competition has been re-launched for this year and he was keen to discover the secret of Belper’s success.

As his visit coincided with Beer Britain Day, and he is Minister with responsibility for pubs, he also squeezed in a photo opportunity to help support the event, at The Lion Hotel.

Marcus Jones’ main role is as the Minister for Local Government, and, in this capacity he met with Leader of Amber Valley Borough Council, Cllr Alan Cox, and Executive Director (Operations) Julian Townsend, as part of his mission to get out and talk with Council representatives across the whole country.
