Thanks to all visitors

Have your say

Anne Charlesworth, one of the organisers of the Easter opening of The Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, near Victoria Hospital, has thanked everyone who turned up.

“It was lovely to see such support from the public and for people to share their memories and hopes for its future,” she said. “As a result of this we have decided to collect peoples stories about The Shrine to add to our archives and urge people to get in touch. We want to hear what your involvement or connection might have been.

“Do you have any special memories, or perhaps you supplied or built something for this magnificent Chapel.

“We are very keen to record its social history for posterity and feature its shared past for the community and for Blackpool’s Heritage and Archives.
