A Blackpool councillor is calling for school holiday dates to be co-ordinated across the town.

Coun Tony Williams, leader of the Conservatives on Blackpool Council, said: “I am calling on all school heads and boards of governors in both primary and senior schools to come to an agreement to co-ordinate their holiday dates so that schools in Blackpool share the same half term and summer breaks.
