FORMBY LIVE 2009
Report by Jane Harrison & photos by Patrick Trollope
ON 1 August at
6.30pm the mayor or Sefton Cllr Alf Doran was outside the local bar
in Formby called "Woodwards", greeting everyone to the
launch of the Formby Live music festival that would continue to take
place throughout the village on the Sunday, 2 August 2009. The music
festival was aimed at bringing more people into the village with a
mix of amateur and professional bands, from the area and afar will
We also entered the
sophisticated bar, that night and found a vibrant lively atmosphere.
The venue was filled with people laughing and talking, whilst a
local band called Incognito played some of the old favourites, by
well known bands like Madness and Coldplay, all with a new beat.
Outside people spilled out into the village where the sunshine
greeted them. These are a few snaps taken that night as the Mayor
and owners of bar gather to start things off on a high note. Of
course the Mayor was on soft drinks all night, even as he raised a
toast with his glass. Everyone clearly enjoying the night, it was a
shame we could not stay longer. We will be reporting back more about
this event in next week's edition.
GOOD luck for the
big day from all your Mob!
