    More than ten thousand excited and hungry customers passed through the doors of the brand new Southport Market in its first 48 hours of opening.

    After much excitement, Sefton Council opened the doors of the refurbished £1.4m Southport Market on Thursday, July 22 and immediately traders were made to handle the heat of what is the North West’s latest place to be for good food and drink.

    In fact nearly 15,000 tasty treats, from wood fired pizzas to mouth watering bubble waffles, were served up to customers in the first 48 hours of the market’s launch, as thousands descended on the resort’s market quarter for a taste of the action.

    Gavin Williams and James Kennedy, co-owners of Allotment; one of the ten stunning food stalls in the new look market, said they were delighted to be firing up the grills and serving up a selection of burgers, hot dogs and loaded fries meals.

    Gavin said: “The council have been phenomenal and the market is already buzzing! I am sure this is the start of something amazing for Southport.

    “We chose to be a part of the market after walking into the building for the first time and became instantly struck by how spectacular it looks.

    “It is a real eye catching site and we know it will draw in so many people to the town.”

    James added: “The investment that has been put into the market is fantastic and it is something that is completely different and we are very excited to be a part of it.”

    Cllr Ian Maher, Leader of Sefton Council, said: “It’s no surprise that already we are seeing tens of thousands of people visiting Southport Market in its first few days of opening.

    “Across the region word is spreading quickly about the market and we cannot thank our incredible traders, bar team and council staff enough for all the hard work that has been put into making this a reality.

    “We look forward to welcoming even more people through our doors this coming weekend!”

    “Tens of thousands” in 48 hours sounds like quite an exaggeration.

    Well aside from the illogical maths in the report, good luck to the stallholders.

    The council can't count, they once said 300,000 had been on the beach for the airshow when ticket sales showed 62000, bit of a difference.

    Did they actually say on the beach?
    Or did they mean they'd also included an estimate of those also watching from free vantage points.

    Noticed people boozing in the pic......ready availability of alcohol could well be the key to the venues success!

    Odd that Google can't find any reports that said that.

    So does every other press release that he copies and pastes. You don't think he writes them all himself do you?
