Lodge 12 July Parade - Southport 2017
THE Orange Lodges from all over the
North West of England, and even from Scotland, descended on Southport for the
annual 12 July Parade. Over 5,000 marchers took part in the event, that
had perfect weather, with a warm wind, blue sky and sun throughout the day.
The event attracted a very heavy Police presence throughout the day, shadowing,
both the morning Parade and the return parade in the late afternoon. Also
Police patrol the area, keeping an eye out for problems as supporters and
marches packed out the Towns pubs, clubs and bars between the parades. This
years event passed off without any major incidents. Liverpool
Provincial Grand Orange Lodge told us that:- "Liverpool has a very large
Irish community and this event started as a day out for members, also to keep
alive out traditions. the Parade is held in memory of those who stood up
for the principles we support today. It celebrates the last time 2 crowned
kings of England, Scotland and Ireland faced each other on the battlefield. The
battle was at the River Boyne in July 1690 and became known as the Battle of the
Boyne. King William III of Orange was victorious over his rival King James
II and secured the Protestant ascendancy for generations to come in Northern
Ireland." Please let us know your views on how this event went via
