Churchtown Christmas Lights switch on 2012

Botanic Road, Churchtown, Southport, will be closed for two hours tonight (Friday 23rd November 2012) between 6-8pm for the annual Churchtown jingle lights switch on.

Hundreds are expected at the annual event in the heart of Churchtown Village.

Some local traders and shopkeepers are very disappointed at the size of the Christmas trees that have been erected above their shops by the organisers, and some traders feel let down at not being asked at all if they would like a tree.
