Nigel has today welcomed the news that Whalley has been included in the Sunday Times 50 best places to live in Britain list. The village is the only one in Lancashire to be included on the list and last year made it onto the 101 best places to live list in the same newspaper.
Speaking from Westminster this morning Mr Evans said,
“I was delighted to read that Whalley has been included on the list, but not in the least surprised. Like many other places in the Ribble Valley, Whalley plays host to excellent local shops and businesses as well as a very strong community spirit. I am sure that all of Whalley’s residents would be pleased to read of its inclusion on the list and would be the first to say that it is a great place to live.
I look forward to its inclusion on next year’s list, along with several other towns and villages in the Ribble Valley!”
