New Charity Christmas Parade
Planned for this Christmas!
IF you missed the Christmas Parade's
that happened 2 years ago, in Southport, well Adam Brown has decided:- "I
took it upon myself to bring it back to the town for all the families in
Southport to come and enjoy." The new Charity Christmas Parade will take
place on Sunday, 6 December 2015, starting at Pleasureland, at 12.30pm, and then
head down The Promenade up to the Lakeside Inn Pub. Then the Parade will turn
around and will head back up towards Pleasureland; it will then go round the
back of Dunes, then heading back up past Morrisons and come out at the end of
Lord Street. The parade will leave Southport and will and will then head off
down Lulworth Road, Waterloo Road, Liverpool Road and will end at The Scout Hut
on Pinfold Lane where all the residents of Springbrook Children's Home will be
having a Christmas Party. Santa will then deliver 100s of donated toys for the
children at the Party.

THIS year the eyes of the Nation have
been on Liverpool, with the amazing Poppy display, called the Weeping Window.
The 10,000 ceramic poppies outside St George's Hall, Liverpool, are part of the
remembrance display at the Tower of London in 2014. Major Roy Bevan, MBE kindly
took photos of the events at St George's Hall, on Remembrance Sunday for us. Our
Editor covered Formby and Southport on Remembrance Sunday, 8 November 2015;
video footage shot at them by us can be seen on this report. Also on
Armistice Day, 11 November 2015, we attended a service at Formby Village
Cenotaph. Then we attended a simple service next door, next to war graves of
Polish Air Force World War II airmen, who are buried in war graves at Our Lady
of Compassion Church in Formby. Ending the services were prayers at the
Village's World War 1 Memorial, also in the grounds of Our Lady of Compassion
Church. Video of the Formby services can be found on the this report as well.
