CROSBY GETS 'BROOKIE' TREATMENT FOR LIGHTS
Report by Correspondent Dominic Bonner Photographs by Patrick Trollope.
 

SCORES of people braved a cold Friday evening to bring in the Christmas cheer and got a star-studded welcome for the traditional 'turning on' of the Crosby annual Christmas lights.

Celebrations began with an early afternoon start as children raced from their schools to the fun themed event of a fairground attraction. Now in its second year running to kick-start their weekend, many adults who were eager to bring in the Christmas cheer as Dune FM provided the centre stage of entertainment courtesy of Sefton Youth Services and accompanied by Saint Wilfred's school band throughout the 4 hour festive event. It was clear that the whole community had turned out to welcome the forthcoming festivities.

The attraction itself brought a merry-go-round, swings, even a traditional chestnut stall and fairground organ which added to the Christmas spirit. Local Resident Doreen Stirling of Runnels Lane, Thornton said:- "It's a great day out for the kids every year, and it brings a good atmosphere into the community."

Crosby television celebrity Debbie Jones joked with the crowd about her career in the Moor Lane makeshift stage as the local Crosby Rotary Club displayed Santa and his sleigh as the event became a cheerful affair with many eagerly awaited the arrival of Brookside's Brian Regan - Terry Sullivan, to switch on the Christmas lights.

Despite a brief set back as the lights stuttered into flame, it was clear that many had looked forward to the community event and to bring in the spirit of Christmas.
