Resort MP Gordon Marsden, has launched his local heroes awards for 2017 and this year is focusing on rewarding people’s environmental efforts.

The awards will be presented by Mr Marsden, who represents Blackpool South, and another special guest at the Solaris centre on Friday July 14 from 3.30pm.

He said: “Blackpool is generally a very dense urban area but we are fortunate to be blessed with some great green spaces, which act as the lungs of our town – Stanley Park, the Moss and Marton Mere are just some of the places we have on our doorstep.

“These awards are about recognising those who go above and beyond in protecting our green spaces and also more broadly championing green initiatives and causes in the town.”
