Coun Peter Murphy the Planning and Economic Development Portfolio Holder at Wyre Council said: “The Wyre Expo follows on from the successful relaunch of the Wyred-Up Business Network and the Business Awards of last year.

“Wyre is a wonderfully diverse Borough and the same can be said for our businesses.

“We have a vast range of small, medium and large enterprises and this gives them the chance to showcase themselves.

“At Wyre we are rightly proud of our support for all things local, this event will bring them into the public eye.”

Jane Littlewood, Chair of event organisers Wyred Up, said “When you look it is amazing just how many great businesses there are here on the Fylde Coast.

“The event is designed to showcase these success stories, from the small to the large and create new opportunities for everyone that comes 
along.”
