AUTHOR Tim Moore included St Helens in a book about unloved parts of Britain - but we reckon there’s plenty to adore about our town...

Pies

Some of the finest nosh in the North West is produce in fair St Helens. Birchall’s, Pimmies Pies, Pickles. Mmmm.

Nightlife

St Helens has two outstanding professional theatres, the Theatre Royal and the Citadel. Wigan has precisely none. Enough said.

Dream

Yes, it may be a big, expensive marble head on an abandoned slag heap but it’s our big, expensive marble head on an abandoned slag heap.

Johnny Vegas

The boy from Thatto Heath done good

Saints

Nevermind that lot over Billinge Hill, THE greatest rugby league side in all the land.
