A POPULAR pub which was nearly lost forever when plans were revealed in 2019 to turn it into flats, is now flourishing a year after reopening,
The Fox & Goose, on Cable Street, Southport, was at the centre of a planning application three years ago when a developer wanted to turn the empty building into accommodation. The proposal failed to materialise and it was eventually taken over by local businessman Hasan Akdeniz and a large refurbishment was carried out last year.
It has now been 12 months since it reopened and staff say they are delighted with the response from locals.

Fox & Goose Supervisor Beth Humphries, told the Champion: “The first year of reopening the Fox & Goose has been really good!
“We have managed to get through the Covid pandemic in one piece and now things are just getting better and better.
“The weekends do really well, but we are often busy during the week too.
“It is a real fun pub now, helped by local DJ Paul Tasker.
“There is nothing like this place in Southport, when the coloured dance floor is packed with people doing the Macarena!
It is like one big disco every weekend! “
“We would like to say a big thank you to all our customers for supporting us during our first year!”
