St George's Day Parade 2014 - Southport
Photograph by Patrick Trollope

THE annual St George's Day Parade was held in Southport by Southport's Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. The parade took place on 27 April 2014, but this year they had no Police escort, so they had to change the tradional route as a result. Despite the lack of Police, many motorists were extremely accommodating to the volunteers who marshalled the District parade as it headed from the Waterside Lodge on the banks of the Marine Lake, over the road bridge and down Southport's Promenade. "This with the sun made a fantastic backdrop for them to be pictured passing." one of the parents commented. The new route then took them up Leicester Street and passed the Fire Station. On Manchester Road the group moved on to the pavements and had to wait at the traffic lights, due to their being no Police Escort. They then headed into Holy Trinity Church on Houghton Street for the annual St George's Day Parade Service. These are some of the photographs taken by Patrick Trollope of the parade.
