May­oral Brief­ings with Cllr Neil Furey

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

ON FRI­DAY, July 21 my wife and I at­tended Wether­spoon’s in Orm­skirk to un­veil the new Gin­ger­bread model in readi­ness for the Gin­ger­bread Fes­ti­val in Orm­skirk on Satur­day, July 29.

I’m sure ev­ery­one is look­ing for­ward to this event and I trust this will bring many more visi­tors into Orm­skirk.

Af­ter­wards we at­tended the Chapel Gallery for an ex­hi­bi­tion open­ing and prize-giv­ing cer­e­mony.

The gallery was packed with peo­ple look­ing at the art­work and the stan­dard was very high.

Well done to ev­ery­one who ex­hib­ited work and to Chapel Gallery for pro­vid­ing a very en­joy­able evening.

On Satur­day I at­tended an Armed Forces Fun Week­end at Blague­gate Fields, Skelmers­dale.

This was or­gan­ised by Skelmers­dale Vet­er­ans As­so­ci­a­tion.

There were many dif­fer­ent mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles on dis­play as well as other mil­i­tary equip­ment.

There was also a large num­ber of stalls and ac­tiv­i­ties for fam­i­lies to en­joy.

Well done to the or­gan­is­ers and it was great to see such events be­ing held in Skelmers­dale.

In the af­ter­noon, my wife and I at­tended the Green Fayre at Bea­con Coun­try Park.

We joined large crowds at the fayre to see many stalls and dis­plays show­ing off var­i­ous crafts and prod­ucts.

There was plenty for fam­i­lies to do and en­joy, in­clud­ing live mu­sic, fair­ground rides, rock climb­ing, plus food and drink.

This event is grow­ing each year and is very pop­u­lar.

Well done to West Lan­cashire Bor­ough Coun­cil for pro­vid­ing this free event, and to the park rangers for all their hard work in or­gan­is­ing it.
