We're In the News

OK, you’ve already noticed, we love the Fylde Coast! What you might not know is that here at The Rabbit Patch we don’t just publish our own interesting information. We also get things about the Fylde Coast in the news as much as we can too. Over the years we’ve achieved local, regional and national coverage.

(Note: these initial entries are mainly from Coast magazine simply because I’d got the files together on my computer. There are loads more examples, from all kinds of publications, I’ll add them in due course!)

Cleveleys Sea Foam goes Global

International, February 2019

In early 2019 we were contacted by a documentary production company based in Australia. They are making an international TV series called Impossible Planet and want to include some of our footage of sea foam at Cleveleys. Impossible Planet is a 4k 12 x 1hr factual series on our incredible planet and the natural phenomena it can generate.

Our contact at Coast Magazine was asking in late summer for interesting things which we might know about, for inclusion in the Christmas issue. How much more unusual does it get, than meeting Santa onboard a Heritage Blackpool Tram?

I’m not a big fan of publicity for myself, that’s not why I spend such a lot of time publishing Visit Fylde Coast. Sometimes though it’s necessary, as part of the bigger picture.

This article where I appeared with resident writer Chrissie Blogger as the Coast Characters for June 2016 had been 12 months in the planning. The purpose of it was to promote Cleveleys and the Fylde Coast, and of course the Visit Fylde Coast websites.

Mythic Coast, In the News with Coast Magazine

National, July 2015

Just a little piece, but one about the artworks on Cleveleys seafront and the Mythic Coast Trail. And our photo of the Ogre on the beach. Of course.

Mary’s Shell, Coast Magazine

National, April 2015

It’s probably the most photographed thing in Cleveleys. Mary’s Shell sits on the beach where it is submerged by the sea twice a day. It’s been photographed in every which way that you could imagine – and in April 2015 our photo of it was featured in Coast Magazine. It’s part of the story of the Sea Swallow.
