When pianist Chris Lloyd struck up the tune ‘Happy Birthday’ in the elegant Orangery at Chipping’s Gibbon Bridge Hotel, there were three reasons to celebrate.

Lancashire Life readers marked the magazine’s 65th anniversary with a special lunch at the award-winning hotel – while hotel owner and founder Janet Simpson revealed that Gibbon Bridge is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Meanwhile, dedicated reader Liz Walker and her friends told us she had chosen the Lancashire Life lunch especially to celebrate her own 65th birthday.

‘We had an amazing time – it was a very memorable day for me especially when the pianist played Happy Birthday on the white baby grand piano,’ said Liz, who lives at Ainsdale.

Editor Roger Borrell, pictured left, welcomed guests and charted some of the milestones since 1947.

‘We’ve come a long way since those days but we are still true to the core values,’ he said. ‘We are passionate about Lancashire and Lancastrians and every month we seek out the finer things of life in Lancashire - our wonderful countryside, our lovely coastline, our fascinating town and villages, our great food producers and, most importantly, our people.

‘It’s a policy that has served us well – Lancashire Life is not just Lancashire’s biggest selling county magazine, it’s the biggest in the UK.

And that’s down to the people in this room and thousands more like you. Please accept my sincere thanks for our continuing success story.’
