Choir’s Cream Tea Recital

Holy Trinity Church Choir outside St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle during their visit there last summer.

EACH summer, the Choir of Holy Trinity Church, Hoghton Street, Southport visit a cathedral for a week to sing the daily services whilst the resident choir are away on holiday. Over 35 years they have visited most cathedrals in this way; more recently they have been to Norwich, Guildford & Worcester Cathedrals, and last year they sang at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. This is a thrilling and developmental experience for boys and men alike.
Inevitably such ventures are expensive and require regular fundraising activities. The next of these is a Cream Tea Recital at 3:00pm, on Saturday, 22 July 2006. This commences in church where the choir will perform most of the music they are to sing in Peterborough Cathedral and Great St Mary’s, Cambridge which they will visit later this month. The afternoon continues in the Parish Centre with the Cream Tea and where some of the young choristers will entertain with their instrumental prowess. This is invariably an enjoyable occasion and we would love to welcome you. For further information and tickets, contact Fiona & David Williams (01704 532 219) or June & Bob Ball (01704 568 001)

Readers Photographs... "Keziah-Anne"

THIS weeks readers report and photo was done by Chantelle Rea-Bradley. Her report follows:- "10 year old Keziah-Anne gave a fantastic performance at the Churchtown Fair on Sunday 9 July 2006. She introduced her puppet friend Mr Stomper, told jokes, did magic, sang and danced, a good all rounder who was not deterred by the rain!"


THIS week Southport’s Jon Jessop has gone public with his plans to go live with a new local radio station. The Station, called SCR or Southport Community Radio, will be on air for 28 days, twenty four hours a day on 87.7 FM. Jon Jessop has been planning for some time to go live with a real local station. He told us that:- “It is about time we have community based station for Southport and surrounding area. We are not going to compete with other local stations or news groups… Southport Community Radio will be looking after the local community by providing a unique service, opening the airwaves to many groups who do not get heard. We will be supported by other professional local media groups, such as Southport Reporter, to bring you a fully local perspective. We will be hitting the air waves to give air time to local bands, community groups and to provide local coverage of local issues that affect us all, day to day. With phone-ins and other options for interactive radio on offer, we will be the voice of the community.”

Owner of Southport Reporter, Patrick Trollope said:- “Southport Reporter will be supporting Jon with this fantastic endeavour. It will be a really important boost to the community and should provide a fantastic resource for many groups who do not get exposure on the air waves. There is so much that does not get air time and what Jon plans to do should give more diversity to the local media and more access for the community to get its views and aspirations across. We wish him the best of luck.”

The station will go live for its test period from 6:00am on the Saturday 22 July 2006.

More information to come in the next issue, as well as a full interview.

Letters To Editor:- "Soap Box Derby 1955 in Southport"

"I would like to know if any of your readers can help... Is there any way of looking at the footage of the Soap Box Derby of 1955 in Southport? My father and a group of his Scouts attended, from London and although I have a photograph, it sould be fascinating to see a cine film of them. My father had been born in Southport in 1906 where his father was running a garage as well as offeringchauffeur driven cars for hire, but mvoed to London in 1909. If any one can help, I would be very pleased."  Peter Rowbottom
