Throw­ing light on why Christ­mas comes so early!

Midweek Visiter - - Sandgrounder Showcase -

NOT sure where this year has gone, and that we’re now mid-way through Oc­to­ber.

With now fewer than 70 days to go until Christ­mas, I sup­pose I can’t keep com­plain­ing that shops are sell­ing Christ­mas­re­lated items.

Although some peo­ple, in­clud­ing my­self, would still ar­gue that it’s only Oc­to­ber!

One thing we need to talk about, Christ­mas-re­lated, is the ex­cit­ing and truly mag­nif­i­cent Sid­ney Road Christ­mas Lights, in South­port.

Every year, Steve creates a truly won­der­ful and mag­i­cal Christ­mas Lights dis­play for ev­ery­one to en­joy.

This year, we at Sand­grounder Ra­dio, have the hon­our of of­fi­cially switch­ing them on, on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 8.

We’ll give you more de­tails nearer the time, but hope you can come along and join us at this truly amaz­ing sight.

I have to say how pleased I am, per­son­ally, to see the old BHS Store, on Chapel Street, which has been empty for a long time, be­ing brought back to life as a shop, all be it on a short lease.

But, still, it’s great to see that, as we ap­proach the Christ­mas pe­riod, there will be life in the build­ing again. I spot­ted a post as I was flick­ing through the news­feed on Face­book the other day, with a cer­tain post say­ing how dis­ap­point­ing it is to see it be­com­ing a (in their words) a “tat shop”.

I, for one, am just pleased to see it ac­tu­ally be­ing put back into use, rather than ly­ing dark and empty.

Be­fore Christ­mas, comes Hal­lowe’en.

This year, once again, sees the re­turn of our Hal­lowe’en Night Live.

Last year we were broad­cast­ing live from around Church­town Vil­lage and the Botanic Gar­dens. though,

This year, we’ll be broad­cast­ing live from Way­far­ers Ar­cade.

It’s a truly mag­nif­i­cent place and takes on a life of it’s own at night.

It prom­ises to be a fab­u­lous night.

We’ll be joined by lo­cal Psy­chic Medium, Wendy Har­g­reaves.

You’ll be able to lis­ten to the whole show, on Hal­lowe’en from 7pm.

You can lis­ten to us, as your lo­cal ra­dio ser­vice for South­port and The Liver­pool City Re­gion on DAB+ dig­i­tal ra­dio, mo­bile apps, smart de­vices and on­line via www.sand­grounder­ra­dio.
