A Guide to Lymm

Posted by Neil on Monday, 27 October 2014 at 15:18:24

Filed under: Announcements, Lymm, Interview, Landmarks

Visitors to the centre of Lymm have a new reason to get the most out of the visit. Lymm Parish Council has launched a new Guide to Lymm.

It contains a brief history of the village, a description of its main features and details of the festivals and events that are held each year. The 12 page booklet has been compiled by last year’s parish council chairman, Councillor Ian Marks.

Clr Marks said: “Lymm has a great deal to offer visitors and I felt we needed a booklet that brought it all together. "Its main purpose is to attract people to visit our village or to encourage people already here to stay for longer.

"The more people who visit and the longer they stay, the more likely they are to spend money and benefit our local shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. "I hope it will also serve as a handy reference for local people who want to know more about our village.

"My thanks to the Local History Society for providing source documents for some of the material, to the local Photographic Society for some of the photographs, to Lymm Life for printing and to everyone else who has contributed in some way.”

This year’s chairman, Clr Kath Buckley added, “l am delighted to promote this informative guide to Lymm and its history. I have found out some interesting and intriguing information about the village that l live in.”

Copies of the Guide will be put in outlets in Lymm where visitors are likely to go and in locations outside the village to tempt them to come to the village. Shortly it will also be available to download from the parish council’s website.

Meanwhile a further boost to tourism could come in the form of a proposed new information and heritage centre. A working party has been set up to look at the viability of a heritage centre in Lymm and see if grant funding would be available to make it happen.

Filming In Lymm Again

The Royle Family's Craig Cash spotted in Lymm During "After Hours" Filming

The Royle Family’s Craig Cash was spotted in Lymm on Tuesday when a camera crew were in the village to film a new Sky comedy.

He is recording scenes along the canal, outside the village hall, in Pepper Street and at the Bull's Head pub for new show After Hours over the next couple of weeks.

The Jellylegs Productions crew have also used a high tech eight-bladed helicopter called an ‘octocopter’ for filming on the canal footpath.

After Hours will star Father Ted’s Ardal O’Hanlon, Cold Feet’s John Thomson and Mad Dogs’ Jaime Winstone.

The six-part series follows Willow Hannigan (James Tarpey from The World’s End), an 18-year-old who has just had his heart broken.

His ex-girlfriend Jasmine (Ice Cream Girls’ Georgina Campbell) has moved on to someone new, his mates have gone away to university and there are no jobs. So the only thing that keeps him sane is listening to After Hours, a radio show broadcast from a canal boat.

Jaime Winstone and Rob Kendrick play radio hosts Lauren and Ollie while Ardal O’Hanlon stars as Peter, Willow’s dad and an out-of-work milkman. John Thomson takes the buddy role as Peter’s best friend, Geoff.

Ian Marks, chairman of Lymm Festival, said: "We are delighted that Jellylegs and Sky have chosen Lymm as their location for the series. It has created quite a buzz in the village with so much activity going on. We are all looking forward to seeing the final result."

Newcomers Molly Naylor and John Osborne have written After Hours with Craig Cash in the director’s chair. Craig added: “John and Molly have created a world which is not only very funny but has genuine warmth at its heart. It's a pleasure to be working with such talented new writers and a cast of great comic actors.”
