THIS week we have been hard at work putting the last parts of programming up on our lasts additions to Mersey Reporter.     The new additions will be included on the main page next Saturday.   

So what will you find....?

The site will have free down loadable screen savers and email cards with images from Southport, Formby, Liverpool and even the Commonwealth Games to select from!   Click here to down load a free taster.  NOTE:- this download is copyright of Patrick Trollope and can be used for personal use only.

Mersey Reporter will also have an online games room and we will be starting the first 2 games next week with lots more to be added over the next few months.

Our history section has been updated already, so you can now get more information about the region.   Please no jokes about the Doomsday book error... We know it has a typo on the date... it will be fixed with in the next few weeks.  Well you can't get perfection straight off, it would not be British...  The rest is 100% though.   Click to see!   

From next Saturday you can get to play with our taster version of our Virtual Tour of Merseyside.  The full tour will be added very soon.   It has taken over 4 years to complete and will take you around most of Merseyside, showing the good and bad parts.  The aim is to show what the region is really like to our selves and to future visitors.  The tour will be updated once it finished regally, to keep it up-to-date.  We still have thousands of locations to program in to the site, but if it goes to schedule, it will be finished for November.

TV... We will be adding more programs from next week onwards, the first one will be played on Liverpool Reporter  over next week and then added to the program archive.... (who says internet radio can not have TV images as well...?) Remember their is already one TV program online in the archive for you to watch.  Click for archive!  Install Real player to tune in.

If you find it hard to access any part of the site over the next few days, please let us know.   It could be down to our testing.    Thank you  to every one who emailed us last week about the Classic Car Photo Page being down on the photograph link.  Sadly that was due to our updates.   It has now been fixed.

Enjoy the new pages!

THE Grand UK Final of YOURS Silver Stars took place on July 28 to a packed out Southport Theatre. 

Over 25 VIP's were on hand, many of them Lord Mayors from all over the Britain to see this year’s performance of the areas representatives. The amateur talent contest is produced for the over 60s and is the biggest in Britain’s biggest. 

Sponsors and organisers YOURS magazine told the Southport Reporter:- "The sun came out for the stars and they performed tremendously. It was a hard competition to judge as all the competitors was fantastic." 

This competition has really put Southport on the map for Talent Competitions and proved to be a good build up to this years Search Far A Star National contest to be held later this year in Southport. More in our other report this week.

The winners were First Place, was awarded to a vocalist and guitar player from Fife called Gordon Malvenan.  Second place was taken by Teeside vocalist Ronnie Hughs leaving third place to Newton Willows from Leeds.   The award for most original act was given to Joyce walker, a vocalist from Ayrshire.
