Una McBride, who with her mother - also called Una and known to all as Mrs Mc - is running the Save The Becconsall Campaign in Hesketh Bank which I have referred to several times previously, tells me that an entrepreneur with a track record of rejuvenating and running pubs/eating places is showing a real interest in taking on the Bec in partnership with a family brewer of six generations standing. For commercial reasons, names can't be revealed yet.
Una said, "This is all a long way off a happy conclusion at this time, however, it does show that it is possible and it is something to get excited about! There are people out there who may be able and willing to bring The Bec back as The Bec instead of more housing!"
So although nothing has been finalised yet, I doubt things would have got this far without the campaign Una and her mother have organised.
