Stories of the people, the place and the areas surrounding Formby. Formby is a coastal town with a beautiful beach, fabulous sand dunes, pine woods, red squirrels all managed by the National Trust. The town boasts an attractive village shopping centre where there's much to see, eat and drink. Because of its popularity, parking close to the beach is limited, often full and large queues form by noon at weekends and bank holidays.
This weekend, (Sunday 9 December), a Christmas Craft Fair will be held at Southport hospital.
Stalls will be located in the gymnasium area of the Northwest Regional Spinal Injuries Centre, from 12-4pm.
Local craftspeople are welcome to sign up for a table at a cost of £10 each. Come along to sell your crafty creations or Christmas themed gifts and decorations! All are welcome.
Visitors on the day can chat to local charities, browse the stalls, and enjoy delicious refreshments and Christmas entertainment.
The fair will raise much-needed funds for the refurbishment of the spinal injuries centre’s garden. This garden is used for recreation and rehabilitation by patients, many of them being long-term residents.
Parking is free for visitors, bring the ticket along to the fair and it will be validated.
