    13th December 7pm-10pm Retired cricket umpire, proud Yorkshireman and avowed socialist, Godfrey Shackleton, celebrates his lottery win with a lads’ trip to Morecambe and a beer or two. But his life changes once again when he bumps into twinkly widow, Betty, who is visiting the resort with Clitheroe Conservative Club. Love, loss, hope, happiness, struggles and smiles, all come together in this charming tale of finding love in the third age. But the path of romance doesn’t always run smoothly. Will Godfrey bowl this maiden over? Will this unlikely couple triumph over adversity and bring each other the ‘golden years’ sunshine they both deserve?
