orange lodge parade

Orange Lodge to parade in Southport on Monday.

The Liverpool Provincial Grand Orange Lodge will be parading in Southport tomorrow, Monday 29 May.

This parade is for the junior members of the Institution to celebrate Commonwealth Day.

Parades will be held in Liverpool and Southport. A number of junior members will be carrying flags from all of the Commonwealth Countries.

As a mark of respect to all those who lost their lives or were injured in the horrific terrorist attack in Manchester, a minutes silence is to be observed by the whole parade, after laying of wreaths at the cenotaph on Lord Street.

Buses will arrive at Asda on Derby Road at around 11am then the parade will proceed via London Street, Nevill Street, the Promenade, Esplanade, Marine Drive, to Pleasureland.

The parade will again form up inside Pleasureland fairground at 4.30pm and move off at 4.45pm in reverse order to board buses outside Asda for the return parade in Liverpool.

Sefton Council is introducing a number of alcohol-restricted spaces in a bid to tackle anti-social behaviour and help to build safer and healthier communities.

The No Drinking Zones are designed to encourage more responsible drinking and ensure that the law-abiding majority can enjoy public spaces – safe from crime and anti-social behaviour.

This initiative demonstrates the Council’s commitment to residents and visitors so that everyone can have the peace and quiet they deserve  – to enjoy the places where they live or work. The areas will also help to improve the quality of life in local communities through the prevention of problems or nuisances.

The restricted sites are located in Southport, Formby, Crosby, Waterloo and Bootle and do not include any licensed premises.

The following roads are within the No Drinking Zones:

  • Southport Town Centre – the area bounded by Kings Gardens, Promenade, Seabank Road, Gordon Street, Lord Street, Union Street, Castle Street, Hill Street, Wright Street, London Street, Chapel Street, Tulketh Street, Bridge Street, Eastbank Street, Princess Street, Market Street, King Street, Duke Street, Morrison’s Car Park

Sefton introduces MORE No Drinking Zones in Southport

Sefton Council will work closely with Merseyside Police and other partners to monitor the No Drinking Zones.
