A family business, which has been going for 62 years in Blackpool, is celebrating after winning an award.

The Whittakers Dance and Drama School of Hornby Road won family business of the year in the Radio Wave Culture and Lifestyle Awards.

Sheila Ganley, daughter of founder Beryl Whittaker, said they were delighted to win the honour.

She said: “It was great to be recognised as a family business.

“Mum died in 2006 but dad (Jack )still helps out. He is really keen on drama. We are a real family business and a lot of our students from years ago are now bringing their own children to classes with us so there is a real family feel there.

“Whittakers was founded in 1952 and is still going strong.

“We offer all forms of dance and drama from age two to 80.”
