Have your say

Maybe it’s a wedding proposal, your first ever roller coaster ride or a great family picnic on the beach.

VisitBlackpool has launched a competition asking people to share their favourite memories of the resort.

For Claire Smith, president of hoteliers group StayBlackpool, a moment she remembers as taking her breath away was when Blackpool FC beat Cardiff at the Championship play-offs in 2010.

She said: “When Blackpool FC got through to the play-offs the whole town was behind them.

“There was great community spirit.

“Other moments which have made me gasp were this year when Gary Barow came on to the stage at the Switch-On and last year when Rick Astley performed.”

Anyone who would like to share their favourite Blackpool moment is being asked to visit www.yourblackpool.com

Prizes on offer for the entries which receive the highest number of votes include tickets to see Union J at Blackpool Winter Gardens and a Blackpool goodie bag.

Marketing Blackpool digital manager Neil Greaves said: “We already know what a great place Blackpool is but we are giving our visitors and residents the opportunity to show us what they think too.”

The campaign is running until November 10.
