Yesterday I attended the Southport Air show and was impressed by the scale and organisation of such an event. Thousands of people from all around thew country to see the show. This is the kind of big event that I’d like Fylde to host, something that puts the borough and the constituent parts of the borough on the national and international map.

I appreciate that events like this takes months and even years to plan and that nothing can happen over night, but I will be putting the officers in the relevant departments on notice that we’re on the look at for big events.
