Formby Village closed for a performance.....
 
 
ON Saturday, 15 December 2007, Formby village was yet again closed to traffic as a massive nativity play was watched by an enthusiastic crowd. The event had a wonderful atmosphere about it, despite the cold weather. For two hours, the centre of Formby village came to a stand still as it became the site of an enthralling play, which recreated the story of Christmas. The performance used live animals and actors who, aided by local children, enacted the script, as the narrated story boomed out over a PA system.

'Formby Churches Together' organisers, Bruni Jones and June McGibbon, told us that:- "The event was a magical success. We hoped to show the true story of Christmas to as many people as we could and, thanks to the efforts of many people, we feel we achieved our goal, very successfully. We would like to thank all who braved the cold and came out to see the event and especially we would like to thank all who took part in it. Special thanks must go to Trinity St. Peter's School, St. Luke's School, St. Jerome's School and Freshfield Primary, whose pupils took part. Also thanks to Rice Lane City Farm, who supplied the goats and sheep, Mr. G Dyson for supplying the donkey, Merseyside Police for not only supplying the Mounted Horses, but also for helping with the running of the event, Range High School for producing the handouts and finally to Formby Parish Council for its support and to Andy Johnson, who provided the PA system."

To all the churches who took part from Altcar, Hightown and Formby, 'Well done'. This was a truly well planned and run event, which we hope to see it become an annual fixture.
