Hope you’ve had a great week.
Last week I wrote a blog on your nearest city (Liverpool) and thought it would only be appropriate to sell you on your local town. So, hello Ormskirk.
Ormskirk is super cute and as a student living away, you will get to know this place like the back of your hand. the town is pretty small with everything a student needs from local supermarkets to essential pubs and bars.
So, let’s see what you can get up to:
1- EHU has to be my first one obviously. The uni puts on a range of events throughout the year to keep you hooked in. Our SU plans everything from paintball parties, cake sales, fancy dress events, charity based events to stand up comedy, theatre events and society events.
2- Hungry or thirsty? Ormskirk has a variety of pubs, cafes, bars and restaurants for you to enjoy! So get in a pint… or two.
3- I know it’s not exactly Ormskirk but a stone throw away is Farmer Ted’s (a family fun animal petting farm) which might not be your cup of tea normally, but when it comes to September and October it’s transformed into Farmageddon a scary 3 building walk through, surrounded by all your worst nightmares.
4- Gyms and libraries – for those dedicated enough, I envy you.
5- EHU cinema. Yes, we have a cinema, how cool?
Well, that’s just a sprinkle of what Ormskirk has to offer you and if it’s not enough Liverpool and Southport are only down the road. To be honest you’ll find that you and your friends think of better things to do anyway, so it’s not all about a little town.
Until next time…
