Preparing for new role as trainee reporter on the Ormskirk Advertiser I thought I'd best do some research. Visiting the place for the first time in my life seems like a good way to start, and so I'm off there this afternoon. Until this morning I was working on the assumption that it is a sleepy market town 15 miles north of Liverpool.
Never assume anything - that's what google taught me today:

So are the young people: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7413714.stm
In fact, everyone in Ormskirk is adventurous: A link to an article about swinging in the area on the Ormskirk Advertiser website.
I'll deliver my verdict on the new patch upon my return.
