Developments in Burscough

I have been to an event at the new Burscough Wharf this afternoon.

Burscough Wharf is a new retail development in Burscough village and it is due to open on valentines weekend with a whole selection of entertainment.

The purpose of today was to go and see the development which is very exciting for the town. It is a very traditional site and the shop units are housed within renovated barns that has been derelict for a number of years. Shops include sweets, cards, tea room and wine bar, ladies and childrens clothing and also a hair and beauty salon. There is also space for entertainment including a cinema. I will look forward to going to have a look around when it opens.

In addition I have also met with our photography competition winners today to present them with their regional prizes. It was a joy to meet them and I would like to wish them all luck in the national competition judging that will take place later in the month.
