Cheers to all at Penwortham’s Christmas market
Town was packed for festive celebration
Penwortham was full of seasonal cheer and festive fun as the annual Christmas Market
returned to the town. Businesses along Liverpool Road were joined by stall holders,
children’s rides and Santa himself, as traders and local groups showcased the best of what
the town has to offer.
Vincents Solicitors joined forces with Penwortham’s Original No. 1 Fairham Gin which had a
stall outside their branch office at 72 Liverpool Road, to host a celebratory evening as part
of the markets event. Offering free G&Ts, tasters and a chance to win a free bottle of the
locally produced Ochre Edition, their end of the street proved a very popular location
throughout the night.
Jemma Lloyd, head of Vincents Penwortham branch, was delighted to see the town so busy
after the difficulties of the last two years. She said: “It was fantastic to have the Christmas
Market back and the community certainly came out to show their support for local
businesses and traders, many of whom have been hit hard by Covid restrictions. Liverpool
Road was packed to the rafters all evening and people were having a really wonderful time.
“I’m so glad we teamed up with No.1 Fairham, their gin is lovely and everyone was so
impressed that they’re actually from our home town, in fact they were pretty much sold out
by the end of the night, with yet more orders for delivery. We also loved meeting so many
of the other local businesses for a bit of fun, and I was delighted to welcome lots of our
clients who popped by for a celebratory tipple.
“The Town Council has done a wonderful job in bringing the Christmas spirit back to
Penwortham this year. It’s really sparked our imaginations and we’re going to get more
involved next year and do what we can to help support this fantastic annual event.”
