Southport Hesketh Division

Southport Hesketh Division

Division Commissioner: Nichola James

On the North Merseyside and West Lancashire Border sits the beautiful Victorian resort of Southport. The town is a busy place with wonderful tree lined streets and great shopping facilities and can boast the second longest pier in Britain. Now a Grade 11 listed structure the town received funding to redevelop the pier and it now stands at 3,650 feet in length and is open every day except Christmas Day and Boxing Day. It is quite a tradition to take a stroll down the pier and girls from all over the division have made their Promise at the end of it looking out to sea.

We are lucky to have Waterside Lodge in our town and here girls can take advantage of water sports on the lovely marine lake.

Southport is also host to the annual Southport Flower Show which attracts thousands of visitors every year in the summer. In early September we see the Air Show and have fly byes from the Red Arrows and World War 2 bombers. In October every year the town also hosts a musical fireworks competition and the skies above the town are lit up to the sound of music.

Southport can also boast a fantastic theatre development which was the host venue for the Centenary Thinking Day events in North West England.
