Happy New Year to all our readers!

Welcoming In 2012

IT is more of a tradition now than ever, so our editor braved the elements to go out and document the party goers in Pubs and Clubs in Formby and in Southport. So did you get photographed by our editor, Patrick Trollope?

This year he visited the following locations in Formby:- The Railway, The Grapes, The Cross House, The Royal, The Pinewoods and The Freshfield Hotel, then in Southport we covered, Bar Non, Capilla, Rockin’ Asia, The Fox and Goose, Fuegos, The Latin Lounge, Alter Ego Cafe Bar, SFC Neville Street, The Ship & Anchor, Foghorn, Maloney's, Bar Humbug, O'Leary's and also Elementary. We hope you all had a fantastic time and from what we could see, you all looked as if you did.  But it was not just Southport and Formby we have photos of this year as a few others were snapped for us at the Rufford Arms Hotel, L40. 

Please let us know if you have any photographs taken of yourselves in other areas, on New Year’s Eve. If you would like to see the rest of the photographs, please continue to do so by clicking on here now!
