SCUNTHORPE TELEGRAPH COMMENT: Relaunched team's efforts to put pride back into the town should be warmly welcomed
News that Scunthorpe Renaissance Town Team is to be relaunched should be warmly welcomed.
The group had worked well in the past and raised the profile of the town – and some of the issues that it faced – before it disbanded in 2011.
Now, by relaunching, it hopes it can work together to bring opportunities and investment to the town centres in both Scunthorpe and Ashby.
The team's acting chairman, John Hayes says the aim is to put pride back into the town and make it a place that people will want to visit and come back to.

He cites the gardens and grounds by the Civic Centre and Central Park as looking perfect and wants the town centre to be just as nice.
A 10-strong team has come together for the relaunch and are hoping to boost their numbers to 40.
It goes without saying that the more people who come forward, the more the team will be able to do.
Splitting into sub-groups and taking on different projects around the town is the aim so numbers are important.
Many people are quick to offer their views – often negative – about the town and its town centre but the same people are happy to leave it to others to do something about it.
So if you are unhappy with your town, do something about it.
Go to the Civic Centre at 6pm next Thursday and join the fight.
Support the town team and let's work together so we can all be proud of living in Scunthorpe.
