I have wonderful memories of Southport.
My Mum and Dad used to live here. I specifically remember lots of deckchairs and a band playing on Saturday mornings at the Kings Gardens in the summer; my Dad would always go every weekend. I loved shopping with my Mum on Lord Street – there were lovely shops such as Emma Somerset, Broadbents, Russell and Bromley and Laura Ashley. At Christmas time was always wonderful in Southport, many gift shops, cafes and restaurants and the Christmas lights.
We liked going to Nostalgia Tea Rooms sometimes which was a treat for coffee and cake and which had a wonderful view of Lord Street. We like fish and chips from the Swan and walking on the Pier. We also liked going to Southport Theatre and the Little Theatre. I went to the fair many times with my family and nieces and nephews and the Kings Gardens. I would have to say the Wayfarers Arcade is my favourite building as it is so beautiful and has the brilliant statue of Red Rum.
