Moorcroft Plastering – Southport, acknowledges boost new market quarter will bring the town.
In some much needed down time, following the completion of a number of big projects in and around the area. We were only too happy to take a look inside new Southport Market recently, after it opened to the public for the first time following its £1.4million refurb.
Southport’s newest attraction officially opened its doors at the end of July, it has seen the creation of around 100 new jobs and will lead the regeneration of the ‘Market Quarter’ area of town.
The new facility follows the huge success of similar markets across the North West, including Altrincham Market, Baltic Market in Liverpool and Mackie Mayor in Manchester.
The scheme has been led by Sefton Council, supported by funding through the Southport Town deal and Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. This development will breathe new life into the long-established market to offer something big, bold and wonderful for the seaside town.
Such additions have contributed to increased visitor numbers in the town this year, with more than 5m people have visited Southport so far this year – 16.6% up on the pandemic year of 2020 but also 5.1% higher than the same point in 2019.
Total number of visitors to the town for the year to date is 5,065,024. Southport is doing well compared to other areas of the country. Overall, visitor numbers to the North and Yorkshire is still down 14% on 2019 and 21.7% down for the whole of the UK. The latest footfall figures were compiled by Springboard Research.
Being a local company, and passionate about all things Southport, we are delighted to see the town doing well, and long may it continue into the future.
