I know we all like to complain about the weather, but the month of May this year, as in 2012, saw Morecambe appearing very frequently in the Met Office ratings as the sunniest place in the North West Region.
On some days it was even declared the sunniest place in the whole of the UK, in competition with the normally more favoured locations enjoyed by our south coast resorts.
If those Visitor readers familiar with Facebook and Twitter could get this information out to their digital friends nationwide, they would do Morecambe a great service and would help to boost our tourist trade. Seaside resorts everywhere thrive when the sun shines. Let’s tell the world.
