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.
