Southport Carnival, Armed Forces and Veterans Weekend 2012, did you go?

THIS year Southport put on a fantastic weekend to rise money for the armed forces charities and other charities along the way.  With what was a very  busy schedule of events, from holding a Falklands Display in Southport's Town Hall, to a large event on Princes Park, a service at the War Memorial and the Southport Veterans Day Charity Carnival, to name just a few of the events.  Sadly the weather was extremely bad for most of the weekend, and that did affect attendance and even stopped some of the displays from being erected on Princes Park, but it did not dampen the spirit of those taking part.  Even the young children walking and performing in the Carnival carried on as a torrent of rain poured down on them, as a thunderstorm loomed overhead.  One child from a dance group taking part in the parade, still dripping wet at the end said:- "I fully enjoyed it."  Not what we expected to hear!   Sunday was a better day in the end, but again it was a damp and dull start, but thankfully the sun did emerge.  Sadly to late for getting the crowds in.  Lets hope we can honour our military heroes next year under blue skies and also raise even more cash for charity.  If you took part in the weekends activities, please do let us know what you thought about them.  Email us to:- and let us know what you really think!   We have lots of photographs that we are slowly uploading from the event, plus some video footage.  We will be uploading in two uploads, Part 1 this week and a Part 2 next week.  To see this weeks photos, click on here now!
