I wonder if he'll still keep the Tricketts name too on any New Signage, or if that will go now seeing as theres no Tricketts Ice Cream?

Dunno, Taggy, but I hope he keeps all the historic pics of bygone Accrington on the walls. always enjoy looking at those.

I always thought it was still owned by Tricketts. Just shows how wrong you can be. I used to love having a Horlicks there!

the best thing about Tricketts when i was little was their coke floaters....a glass of coke with ice-cream in it.....wouldn't catch me drinking one of those anymore....what did our parents make us do when we where kids?

You mean they took you kicking and screaming and said you will drink your coke and ice cream

Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

Poor stallholders! This is how the Market Hall looks today. The stallholders are slowly being turfed out of their "home" and are having to move all their "possessions" to a temporary stall.
But ... will it all be worth it???
A friend of mine lives in Bury, where their market is buzzing. Coachloads of visitors turn up on a weekly basis. Perhaps our Council should go on a coach trip to Bury and find out what we are "missing" in Accrington.
How sad is the Market Hall now to go in!

Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

Thanks for the photos, the big advantage for Bury is the fact that they have the indoor market hall, the food hall and the out door market all grouped together and then surrounded by shops as well as the interchange being a few yards away

Sounds pretty much like the set up in Accrington, about ten years ago, when our markets were still thriving.

Just out of interest, is there a lift going up to the upper floor?

Market Hall Refurbishment

View taken this morning, from front side door, nearest to Slingers butchers. There suddenly seems to be a lot of activity and a lot of new stalls are suddenly "springing up" - hopefully some of the stallholders will be given a permanent site soon.
