We’re visit­ing sev­eral old haunts on Ghost Walks

Midweek Visiter - - Sandgrounder Showcase -

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.
