The Future’s Bright
When you’re looking to relocate to a new town, whether it’s for work or to live, it’s important to research the local amenities. There are some places which are punching above their weight when it comes to these and Penwortham is one of them
You might think that with Penwortham being just a 10 minute drive from Preston city centre, it might lose out in terms of visitors and shoppers, but Penwortham has seen some major changes over the last 12 months, which is actually attracting more people and there’s still something to look forward to in 2020.
Penwortham has always prided itself on its array of independent shops offering something different, but now it’s been capturing the food and drink market with bars and restaurants keen to get on board the town’s emerging restaurant and bar economy.
Lime Bar, Tap and Vine, Craft and Crust, Bon Bon Café, all sit nicely alongside Salvatore’s, Slice of Scilly, the Black Bull Inn, The Fleece and Cop Lane Coffee Shop and Restaurant. With plenty of variety, there really is something for everyone.
Penwortham also benefits from having a great community spirit, which has helped keep its local feel. Events such as Penwortham Live ’20 which is an annual music festival, taking place this year 15th and 16th May, which sees venues from churches to coffee shops, bars to bistros taken over so visitors and residents can enjoy live music and entertainment over the two days.
This is followed by the Penwortham Gala in June and Christmas Markets in December. The relatively new Penwortham Arts Centre in the old library, also hosts a range of activities, events and interest groups for the whole community.
With the new Penwortham bypass now open, travel to and from Penwortham is now even easier. So, the future really is bright for Penwortham and well worth a visit.
