Welcome to Poynton Video & Party in The Park 2013 (Below)
Poynton Town Council has commissioned a short film to encourage visitors to experience Poynton, our small vibrant town with its unique village feel. Available below and YouTube, it captures many aspects of life here, and gives a rich flavour of what Poynton has to offer its community and visitors, as well as anyone considering moving here.
NB. Please note that the video was released in August 2013 and some of shops or businesses will have changed.
Whilst permissions were obtained wherever possible from all those businesses and organisations that feature in the video, no payments were received or made for their inclusion. Besides a nominal amount paid by the Council to local producers Mike and Amy Gallagher, who spent hours filming and editing the video, it has been produced free for the benefit of Poynton!
The film features Shared Space, a selection of its shops, bars, restaurants and cafés, and some of Poynton’s sports clubs, activities, leisure facilities, wildlife, entertainment, attractions, history, schools and properties. You may find a few surprises along the way!
We all know that Poynton is an ideal place to visit, live, work, shop and play. Please watch the video and encourage others to do so too! Feel free to share the link to the video via Facebook, Twitter or your own website, if you have one.
The more people who discover Poynton, spend money in our shops and restaurants, and visit excellent attractions such as the Anson Museum, the better. Thank you for playing your part in helping to promote Poynton!
To watch a full screen version select the symbol at the bottom right of the video window as it starts to play or hover your mouse over the video at any time to reveal it.
