The Gingerbread Family Trail will run until January 3, so there’s plenty of time to enter.

Southport BID CEO Rachel Fitzgerald said: “We are excited to unveil a comprehensive package of festive themed attractions throughout the BID area that will attract shoppers, diners and other visitors to Southport throughout these crucial few weeks in the run-up to Christmas.

“This schedule of activities will encourage visitors and local residents to engage with Southport on multiple occasions across the festive period.

“Our message to people in Southport this year would be to please support our local businesses and to do your Christmas shopping in town rather than online.”
