Formby Christmas Lights
are Switched On...! Photographs by Patrick Trollope.
ON a moderate November Night, the lights came on for
Christmas in Formby Village. The local traders have again done the area
proud and have helped to decorate the village with Christmas Lights. This
year many children are pleased to see the return of the Snow Man, who is
again back after a summer recovering from his injuries. The event on Sunday,
22 November 2015 had the Village buzzing. It was a slow start, but thanks to
the surprisingly moderate weather, that had not been forecast, the crowds
soon built up. Families enjoyed the fun fairs, side shows, Father Christmas
Grotto, food stalls, and even trips on a model train… All that as live music
played on a large stage, which this year was located next to the Post
Office. As the bands played, the host for the day, Southport Radio's Neil
Newton did a fantastic job as host and by performing the major task, the
countdown. Both Liverpool FC's and Everton FC, Alan Kennedy and Graham
Stuart also helped Neil to switch on this years lights! From Christmas
elves to Puddle Ducks, this was quite an event. We would love to hear your
