Could Swanage be the best town in England (we think so).

Well, this competition wants to find the best in England.

Towns across England are being called upon to compete in the Government competition designed to help communities come together and unleash their potential.

Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick said the contest, to be launched later this year, would help make the 2020s "a time of renewal for towns and communities".

The competition aims to celebrate towns' achievements in areas such as entrepreneurship, technology, community, enterprise and integration.

Mr Jenrick has pledged to visit all 100 areas receiving funding under the Government's £3.6 billion Towns Fund in the coming months.

The fund aims to help towns to build prosperous futures.

Cities will not be able to enter the Town of the Year competition.

The Cabinet minister said: "People have put their trust in this new Government and we're making an immediate start to serve local communities and deliver real change, through our £3.6 billion Towns Fund.

"I will visit all these areas in the coming months and make sure they're receiving the practical support and investment they need on the ground."
