Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “As usual, the weather has not been the best since the school holidays started, but the sun is always shining in The Mall.
“The whole concept has been designed as a traditional seaside day out and we are really looking forward to welcoming everyone to our beach, which is located in Victoria Court behind our Ask Me Point.”
