Armed Forces Weekend - Southport - 2014
Photograph by Patrick Trollope

AS the UK marked Armed Forces Day, Southport held a 2 day event on Princes Park, and a service at the Monument.

Saturday, 28 June 2014 was not the best of days, with cloud and a cold wind keeping many away. Saturdays offered those who did attend a chance to look at some classic military vehicles, along with many displays and stands which had been
arranged around an arena, on Princes Park, across from the Vue Cinema complex. The event also had performances taking
place in the arena, with bands playing and other similar things taking place. The event also had one of the local Viking re-enactment groups taking part at it. What a difference a day makes though, as Sunday, 29 June 2014 there was non-stop sunshine and a fantastic temperature to boot. The day started off with a service of remembrance at the Southport War Memorial, on Lord Street. Following that were the service parades with members of the local cadets along with local regiments and veterans who headed out from the Memorial to the Town Hall and also to Princes Park. In stark contrast to Saturday, Princes Park was extremely busy, with slightly different things on offer for those attending, to that which had taken place on the Saturday. Again bands took part in live performances, along with displays by various groups including the West Lancs. Dog Display Team. Both days proved to be a great day out for all ages, both serving and not serving.
