The May Bank Holiday weekend promises to be a real cracker in Whalley, where all the independent businesses are working together to give visitors a real incentive to come to the town.

The past few months has seen a number of new businesses open up in the village, which is a riot of colour at this time of year with hanging baskets and floral displays.

Enhancing the shopping experience further, boutique owners, cafes and shops are collaborating to give visitors the opportunity to visit their stores and take part in a Bank Holiday Draw offering some fabulous prizes!

Hilary Cookson, of ladieswear store Maureen Cookson and neighbouring Benedicts, comments: “Whalley is very much open for business and, quite rightly, the town has become a really strong shopping destination.

“We offer many award-winning, independent businesses who are specialists in their own fields and we are all working collaboratively as we strive to push Whalley forwards.”

“While we have always been famed for our beautiful country location, the surrounding hills and walks, visitors are beginning to realise that Whalley is so much more than that – it is a shopping destination like no other!”
