Lancashire has some of the country’s top business women and an exclusive selection gathers each year for a special luncheon, supported by the county’s top magazine, Lancashire Life.

This year we were delighted to be at Ribby Hall, the Wrea Green business which has created a brilliant spa facility while continuing to gain plaudits for the high standard of food in its restaurant.

Ladies from many walks of life - solicitors, shop owners, restaurateurs and more – were impressed by the latest facilities at Ribby Hall. This renovation and expansion work represents a multi-million investment in the area and the new spa has been named as one of the finest in the country.

The ladies were given a guided tour of the spa hotel by manager Andrew Scott. It’s a stunning 42-bedroom hotel with beautiful scenery from just about every room.

The spa features an outdoor sauna and hot plunge pool, with a whole range of indulgent treatments on offer. The adult-only facility is open 365 days a year.

On arrival, guests were greeted with bellinis and canapés from head chef Michael Noonan. These provided a real mixture of delicious tastes and textures from tempura black pudding to goats’ cheese with pineapple.

Once seated in the restaurant area guests were treated to roast Goosnargh chicken breast, parsnip and vanilla puree, salsify and Westmorland cured ham. This was followed by a sumptuous dessert of blossom honey sponge cake, caramelised pineapple, lime jelly and foam and honeycomb.

During lunch there was a presentation by beauty manager Joanne Deery on the importance of skincare and ladies were allowed to sample a range of products. Charlotte Gili-Ross, Ribby Hall’s marketing manager, also gave guests a talk about the facilities at the complex.

Karen Cackett from Cachet was lucky enough to win an overnight stay at the hotel. There were also other prizes donated by Cachet of Southport, Flamingo Fashion of Penwortham and Wayfarer Restaurant in Parbold.
