We’re visiting several old haunts on Ghost Walks
WE’VE had a busy week here at Sandgrounder Radio.
Not only did we interview Alison Wheeler, of The South, who are performing this week at The Atkinson, but we also interviewed legendary singer Alexander O’Neal, who is performing in Liverpool this December.
As well as Southport singing sensation, Astrid Smith, who popped in on the Breakfast Show with Dave last week.
Things are getting a little spooky this October.
We’re embarking on a number of Ghost Walks around the Southport area.
Our next one takes place on Wednesday, October 17.
We’ll be exploring the seafront, the site of the old Open-Air Pool, Cheshire Lines Railway and finishing the walk at the site of the old Birkdale Palace Hotel.
We’ll also be exploring Churchtown Village and the Botanic Gardens on Friday, October 26, too.
We’re being joined by a local Psychic Medium with over two decades of experience as both a Psychic and Spiritual Medium.
It’s going to make for a couple of interesting nights.
You can book on to the walks and get your tickets by going to our website, www.sandgrounderradio. co.uk - just click on “Ghost Walks” on the “Promotions” section.
Our presenter Jacqui has had a busy few weeks, as she was over in Russia singing and performing last week.
Some of the pictures and videos she sent back were breathtaking.
Jacqui, who runs So Talented Academy, in Wayfarers Arcade, in Southport, is also a professional singer and actress, as well as presenting our weekly afternoon programme from 1pm.
I’m not quite sure when she finds time to sleep.
I keep seeing lots of pictures on social media, of people showing their support for Alder Hey by purchasing this year’s Alder Hey charity PJs. It’s not just humans – dogs are also getting in on the act, too.
Here’s George the Jack Russell, above, showing his support for Alder Hey.
I was left speechless last week (which is unusual for me) when I saw a picture of the finale of one of competitors at the British Musical Firework Championships, with their nod to the centenary of the end of WWI by depicting an image of a bomber plane and lone soldier through the art of the display itself.
Such a touching tribute and very atmospheric, too.
Our friends at the Fylde Fish Bar, in Marshside, Birkdale and Burscough are celebrating Seafood Week all this week.
With lots of tasty treats and, of course, with them being award-winning, they know all about the tastiest seafood there is.
Pop by and see them this week.
