Trip to Southport is being planned

Excursion - A summer excursion is being arranged by Christ Church, Chatburn, for a day trip to Southport. This is for everyone in Chatburn, Downham, Clitheroe and the surrounding area.

On Sunday, July 3rd, a coach will leave Chatburn late morning, and pick-up at various locations en route to Southport, for some free time on the promenade or the shops in Lord Street, then on to the Botanic Gardens in mid-afternoon (where hopefully a brass band may be playing), and a two-course hot meal of your choice, with time to browse around the gardens in bloom, before returning home in the early evening.

Booking forms are available at Christ Church, Chatburn Methodist Church, Downham Church and St Paul’s Church, Low Moor.

Completed forms should be returned with a £5 deposit to Howard Douglas, 24 Ribble Lane, Chatburn, tel. 01200 441624. The remaining amount will be required to be paid by May 1st.

The price will depend on the numbers on the trip. If a full coach of 49 the price will be £16.95 a person. If there were fewer people it will cost more. For example, for only 40 people the cost will increase to £18.95. So, invite your friends and family to join you on this trip.

Whichever price, this is very good value for money, and this trip is expected to be popular, so early booking is recommended.
