Poulton now on the tourism map

Tourism signs are finally directing visitors into Poulton. After years of campaigning by businesses, residents and Wyre Council, four of the familiar brown signs have been installed by Lancashire County Council on the main Garstang Road.

They highlight that there is a town waiting to be explored if people turned in Hardhorn Road, with specific reference to St Chad's Church and Jean Stansfield Memorial Park.

Councillor Barry Birch, Cabinet member with responsibility for the economy at Wyre Council, said: "We have been fighting for this for such a long time because so many people drive blindly past without knowing Poulton is even there.

"We're very much looking forward to welcoming some new visitors to our quaint little town and the boost to local business that is sure to follow as a result."

Councillor Barry Birch is pictured with Poulton community campaigners Carol Woolley and Elaine Cowap.
