Video: See the video that won the Mary Portas bid

THE makers of a short film that helped to secure Nelson’s Mary Portas bid have spoken of their delight at the success.

Each bid town had to prepare a short video, to be aired on the YouTube website, detailing why they should be chosen.

Nelson town has been selected for the Mary Portas experience.

Pendle Borough Council’s town team bid group commissioned Pendle Movie-Makers to help with the video, presented by Hannah Latty, town centre manager.

Peter Copestake, secretary of Pendle Move-Makers, speaking on behalf of the group, said: “We are obviously delighted the bid has been successful. Hannah was a natural in front of the camera. She interviewed lots of people on the street and it came across well. I’m chuffed to bits and I’m sure the subsequent help will benefit Nelson tremendously.”
