Fire Strike! 

A SETTLEMENT between the fire fighters and government as the last hours of the 8 day strike comes to a close now seems to be further away than ever.   A Southport Firefighter sad to us "We are disheartened by the treatment we are receiving at the hands of the government.  We do not want to strike, but we do feel that if we do not, then we will not get the chance again to stand up and be counted.  We will strike now until we get what we want.  We will not sit back any more and let the Government continue on its present path."  Formby fire fighters were also in a similar mood, putting on a brave face, but knowing they face a up hill struggle and one they did not want to get into.   It is only a few days off before another 8 day strike and their does not seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel.

FORMBY SWITCHES ON!

FORMBY WAS given a seasonal sparkle as the lights came on, on Thursday, 28 November.  It was thanks to the  Formby Champion and  with alot of effort given by Peter Dunne, the Formby Traders Association and Lights Co-coordinator,  all of whom made this year's Formby's Christmas Lights better than ever.    TV personality, John Parrott, who lives in the Formby was the man who officially switched on the lights to a packed out village.  With around 2 thousand people enjoying entertainment given by the "Churches Together" choir, the Dune FM Roadshow, Not forgetting the most famous guest of honor on the Formby Rotary Club's Carol Wagon..... Father Christmas!   Shops in Formby Village opened  late, and Brough Butchers were cooking hot baguettes on a large frying pan!

If you missed it do not Forget that Radio City presenter, Pete Price, and Liverpool's best known comedian, Mickey Finn will be turning on the Lights in Hightown on Saturday the 30 November.   Not forgetting on the 7 December is the Formby Dickensian day!  Click here for more information.
