With a genuine interest in the local housing market, particularly affordable homes, the Ribble Valley Mayor Joyce Holgate MBE recently visited Abbeyfields, a new development in Whalley.

She officially opened the two show homes at Abbeyfields by cutting the blue ribbon.

Joyce said: “I’m a great believer in local people being able to afford to stay in the Ribble Valley and thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Abbeyfields. It was lovely to meet a couple who had recently bought one of the first properties – they were downsizing and wanted to live in a village close to the shops and with good transport links.”
