THE manager of Morecambe’s new Travelodge lives just a stone’s throw from his new workplace.

PJ Edgar, a Morecambe man who lives in the new Opus apartments on Euston Road, says he is ready for the challenge of running the new hotel in his home town.

Mr Edgar, whose first name is short for Paul John, previously worked for Travelodge five years ago as manager of the Lancaster M6 hotel, leaving because of the birth of his daughter.

Two years ago he set up a music promotions company called Enigma, running discos, karaoke nights and battle of the bands contests in Morecambe and further afield.

When the chance to return to Travelodge came up just yards from his home, Mr Edgar, 29, jumped at the opportunity.
