Rosie Posies, Chorley

Sue Brown loved sandwiches so much she converted her former home in Farrington Street, in Chorley, into a shop - Rosie Posies.

The family theme is prevalent, as it was named after her late mother Rosie Bolton, who died at the age of 96, and her daughter, Lucy Harper, helps to run the business.

The sandwich bar, which opened last year, also sells breakfasts and has a selection of cakes and other treats.

All meals are cooked from scratch using traditional recipes and where possible utilising locally available products.
