    Crackin’ Photos in Preston

    Posted in DENW

    A “crackin'” time has been had all round so far over the past couple of weeks as the new Wallace and Gromit bench is unveiled outside the Markets in Preston city centre.

    Preston is home to Wallace and Gromit’s creator Nick Park, where he was born in 1958 and our CEO Mel Close, was among those in the area to be invited to the unveiling.

    The bench has given some great national press to Preston and is a lovely tourist attraction accessible to all!
