Did you spot Santa?

ON Christmas Eve 2018 we joined the annual international Santa Watch and hosted our Merseyside Santa Watch Webcam. Teaming up again with and sponsored by Mind Games, Southport, we managed to capture him flying over and also caught a glimpse or 2 of him and an elf on the webcam. Did you see it? If you did not see it, you can watch the highlights on YouTube now, plus these are a few frames we lifted from the time-laps footage.

We would like to also say yet again, a very big thanks again to Southport's Psychic Robot for allowing us to use their music again on the webcam page!

Mind Games is offering our readers 10% off when you pop in and say:- "Southport Reporter sent you." The offer is only valid to the 12 January 2018, and can't be used alongside of any other promotions. More information visit:- MindGamesSouthport.Co.UK.

Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival

THERE'S no denying we all enjoy a spot of over indulgence over the festive period, with the average person consuming over a whopping 5,000 calories on their Christmas lunch blowout.

To burn off these extra calories, it would take approximately 2 whole marathons, 109 miles of pedalling on a bike, 13 hours of swimming, or 8 hours of fast paced ice skating.

Exercising away the extra pounds in 1 session may seem slightly ambitious, however for a fun, light hearted activity to get bodies moving and to make a dent in the festive calorie consumption, ice skating is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy.

With Liverpool Ice Festival open, at Liverpool's iconic Pier Head, until the 6 January 2018, now is the perfect time to gain some new skills on the ice and dust off the Christmas cobwebs.

With its stunning waterfront backdrop, great selection of rides, including the UK's only Ice Slide, and delicious selection of food and drink stalls, Liverpool Ice Festival is a great activity to enjoy with friends and family throughout the Christmas period.
