Jemma Lloyd became head of the Penwortham branch in early 2021 and is looking forward to joining the community event.
She said: “It is absolutely wonderful to see the Christmas markets back this year.
“It’s one of my favourite local events and, as this is my first opportunity to take part with Vincents, I wanted to do something a little bit special to welcome clients and the community to celebrate Christmas with us.
“I’ve followed the progress of Ellis and Liam over the last 18 months and wanted to support their fledgling business. We’ve a lot to be proud of in Penwortham, and they are a real local success story, so we are delighted to be able to help promote their business.”

It will be No.1 Fairham’s first appearance at the Penwortham Christmas markets.
Owners Ellis McKeown and Liam Stemson launched their first product, the Signature Edition, in April 2021, having experimented with flavours as the first lockdown hit in March 2020.
Despite working full-time jobs in marketing and sales, Ellis and Liam have ambitions to grow No.1 Fairham and develop more products.

The pair launched the festive, orange-inspired Ochre Edition in November. With their stall stationed directly outside Vincents’ offices, they will also be giving away tasters and selling bottles for gifts as part of the event.
Ellis said: “We’re really excited about being part of the Penwortham markets and sharing our Lancashire craft gin directly with our local community.
“It’s great to be working with Vincents, and we’ll definitely take the opportunity to introduce ourselves to more of the businesses along the high street and really grow our network.
“There’s so much great stuff going on in Penwortham, and people are so supportive of each other. It promises to be a really great night.”
