A PROJECT designed to improve and showcase a waterway at Ramsey has picked up a prestigious regional award.

The Ramsey Area Partnership received the best market town project commendation for its Ramsey Waterside Regeneration scheme.

Judges found the project enhanced the area's distinctive look by showcasing Ramsey's river gateway to attract visitors and locals alike.

Work carried out included the installation of new moorings, improvements to access and planting of horticulture.

"Already users of the waterways are taking advantage of the new moorings at the site ­- including those from outside the area who visited for the Inland Waterways Festival at the weekend."

The award was jointly handed out by the East of England Development Agency and Action for Market Towns.

David Sutton, who owns the land at the site, said: "I am pleased to have been able to support this project for the Ramsey and welcome the recognition from the EEDA and AMT on the success of the enhancements."
