St George's Day Parade 2014
Photograph by Patrick
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.
