Celebrating New Year in Southport and Formby - 2017

AS the famous quote says:- "Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it, of course." - The Blank Book? but we feel we should? For 1 night of the year, communities pull together and join hands to sing and welcome in the New Year.  This celebration is often a fantastic release of optimism and good will. 

often this can be seen at home with family and friends or at public events. You can even find it happening in local pubs and clubs.

Each year, our Editor, Patrick Trollope, heads out to capture these celebrations in the pubs and clubs in and around the Northern end of Merseyside, in both Formby and Southport.

This year we have had the pleasure of photographing at the following venues:-

Formby Pinewoods Pub; Woodwards Winebar Formby; The Freshfield Hotel; The Grapes Formby; Sacrebleu Bar Southport; Le Grog; Peaky Blinders Bar; Masons Arms Southport; Fox and Goose, Southport; O'Learys Irish Bar, Southport and the Corridor on Lord Street, plus Southport Food Center.

This year 12 struck as we visited the Fox and Goose, and you can see video taken of us as the clocks struck 12, on our Facebook Page?
