Bickerstaffe’s Pacific Connection…..
Olympic swimmers – the Micronesian team – were training at Edge Hill University for the forthcoming Olympics in the Summer of 2012., when the Parish Council seized the opportunity of inviting them to open the new outdoor gym equipment at the Parish Field. Here they are at the outdoor gym area during the Summer Fair.
PC Chairman Councillor Hilary Rosbotham, receiving a cheque from the Parish Champion…..
Yes, there is such a thing as a Parish Champion – so-called because they have a special role in advising Lancs County Council on ways to sustain and improve effective working relationships between the County Council and parish and town councils. Here, a cheque is being handed over for a grant to acquire a laptop for parish business.
