Plan to film resort’s old stagers

THE glitz and glamour of Morecambe’s bygone era will be revisited by a not-for-profit organisation which works with the over 55s to put on arts events.

The Happenstance Arts Collective has received £1,589 from the Co-operative Community Fund to document the resort’s hidden community of retired entertainers through film and photographs.

The fund is created by members of The Co-operative Group who elect to donate all, or part of their twice-yearly dividend payments directly to the scheme.

The funds are then shared with local community projects and groups.
