This blogs presents the unfurling corporate history of Irlam and Cadishead. In a way it is a vague and amateurish homage to the film and book Robinson in Space (in which Irlam and Cadishead get a brief mention). The method is simple. Whilst acknowledging the towns' rich personal and sporting heritage, this blogs aims to provide commentary on the industrial development of Irlam and Cadishead's economic identity in a complex global world. Comments are much appreciated.
Illuminations from last season have been left in place all over the town. They are now looking dirty and shabby. Why? Early visitors will go home after seeing this neglect. It is a poor advertisement for the resort.
Blackpool has done tremendously well receiving large generous Government grants, the latest for the new sea wall/promenade and the tram track improvements.
Our council should be doing their part in keeping the resort as smart as possible not allowing neglect to become the norm.
