Photographs by Jo
ON Friday, 11 December 2015,
Red, the iconic English soul and pop
band, performed to a sell out audience at the Liverpool Arena, next to the
Albert Dock. The band has sold more than 50 million albums, and the 2015
World Tour was put on marking their 30th Anniversary, and this was part of
the UK side of that tour.
The band over the years has a very distinctive style, drew
upon influences ranging from blue eyed soul, New Romantic and rock to reggae
Since they burst into the public eye, they
have defined British R'n'B throughout the 1980's and 1990's. Today they are
still a major influence on countless young artists and are still in vogue
with the public at large as well. The support act for the night was the
fantastic and very stunning singer, songwriter, Natalie Imbruglia, making a
perfect blend and build up to Simply Red's distinctive sound.
Southport Santa Sprint
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.
THIS year's Southport Santa Sprint
on Sunday, 13 December 2015, was lead by a chap dressed as a Christmas
Turkey. Despite the poor weather conditions, The Queenscourt Hospice
Southport Santa Sprint attracted over 300 people, dressed in Santa costumes.
This year's event started on the Pier and despite the odd slip, all went off
well. They then ran around the seafront and the Marine Lake. Well done to
all who took part in the annual event. It might not be as big as the
Liverpool event, but it is growing and also deserves support. To find out
how to help with the 2016 event, keep an eye the Queenscourt Hospice
website and Facebook
Page. After the race, Silcock
Leisure Group presented them with a cheque. "We would like to say a
big thank you to the Silcock Leisure Group who kindly sponsored the
Southport Santa Sprint. They donated £500 towards the event." a
spokesman for the Hospice told us. If you took part, please let us know what
