The Orange Lodge set to return to Southport

ON Wednesday, 12 July 2017, the Orange Lodge will hold their annual Orange Lodge Parades and in Southport, 125 different Lodges are due to take part. This year we are told marks 327th Anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne, at the River Boyne, on 12 July 1690, when King William III of Orange was victorious over his rival King James II. The day, on Merseyside, we are told starts for the Lodge Members at 8am, when members will hold parades within their local areas, that includes:- Garston, Norris Green and Dingle. Then the local Liverpool Provincial Grand Orange Lodge members will head to Southport and hold a parade at approximately 11.15am. Members will then walk back through the Town Centre at approximately 5.15pm. Drivers are warned to expect delays if heading through Southport Town Centre as the 2 Orange parades take place.

Weapons used in robbery at Southport's Eighty Eight Bar and Brasserie

ON Monday, 3 July 2017, around 12.30am, Eighty Eight Bar and Brasserie was the location of robbery that has left staff "distressed." We are told that 4 men had entered 88 Bar, on Lord Street, Southport, in what has been described as:- "wearing dark clothing, gloves and facial coverings, and in possession of weapons." Merseyside Police, in a press statement said that the weapons in question had been described to them in detail and that they included a bat and knife. We are also told us that threats had been made to staff, when the males made demands for money and cash. Merseyside Police have stressed that nobody was injured in the incident, within the popular venue, that's normally open daily from 11am to 12am. Initially it was believed after the males had exited 88 Bar, they had driven off in a dark vehicle, towards the direction of Southport Market. Now Police are currently checking CCTV and vehicle enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances and identify those responsible.

Detective Inspector Steve Reardon said:- "This was a cowardly attack on people going about their business in the community. The members of staff were thankfully unhurt but understandably distressed to be threatened in this way. I would appeal to anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area around midnight to contact us immediately. There may be members of the public who were passing in their vehicles and recorded dash-cam footage of men close to the bar or driving off, and any piece of information or footage, however small, may be vital for our investigation. I want to reassure all residents and businesses that incidents like this are rare and we will do everything possible to identify the offenders and bring him them justice, and ensure that Southport continues to be a safe place to live, work and visit."

Anyone with information is asked to call:- 101. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously and for free on:- 0800 555 111 or via their online form.
