2011 Southport Christmas Lights Get Switched On

THIS year’s Christmas lights were turned on as the Grand Christmas Parade snaked down Lord Street on Sunday, 20 November 2011. Turning the lights on was Everton FC star and England player, Jack Rodwell, who was joined by Miss Southport 2011, Brea Carney-Jones and Miss Teen Southport 2011, Madelaine, The Mayor and Mayoress of Sefton, as well as Pudsey Bear. That's not forgetting Compere Neil Newton, local band Incognito and a 4 year old called Lewis, with his Dad. Throughout the afternoon live entertainment took place on a stage organised by locally based Toucan events. The entertainment ranged from singers to dancers. But all eyes were on the annual parade, which was once again organised mainly by the Champion Newspaper. The parade, as you will see in the photos consisted of several large Christmas floats, Macmillan Nurses' Snowman and Snowwomen, members of Lions, Southport Kidney Fund, Unite Tae Kwon Do, RSPCA, So Talented, The Odd fellows, Baby Ballet, The Marshside School of Dance, Southport Lifeboat and many others. Well done to all who took part.
