Auberge Restaurant

The Auberge Restaurant was previously the Manchester Bank. After this Rishton Urban District Council used the building as a clinic.

NOW you see it, now you don't: banner bandits stripped a Rishton restaurant of its advertising sign for the second time in months in February 1997. In the raid, a 16ft nylon banner advertising the Auberge Restaurant was torn from its fixings on the wall of the High Street eating house.

A couple of weeks previously, a bright orange price sticker disappeared from the sign, and a couple of months before that, the previous full-length banner was stolen.

Restaurant proprietor Lorraine Hamer was counting the 150 cost of the latest banner theft. She said: "As it advertises the restaurant and when we are open for lunches, it won't be any use to anybody else. It's quite a hefty thing and would need a couple of people to fold it up."
