We’ve put together all the info you need to know to make sure you have the most wonderful time of the year!
Whether it’s the hustle and bustle of South Road, the bargains of Bootle Strand, the boutiques of Lord Street, Formby’s Chapel Lane or Central Square in Maghull, Sefton is a huge shopping spree waiting to happen all year round.
And it’s no different at Christmas! A number of retailers across the borough are taking part in Late Night Shopping hours on Thursday evenings in the run up to Santa’s arrival, while local businesses are well prepared for a surge in present buying, last minute scrambles and a flurry of winter buys.

Christmas is a time for giving. And what better way than to donate to the Sefton Mayor’s Toy Appeal?
The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Dave Robinson, is asking as many people as possible across the borough to get behind this year’s Christmas gift appeal.
The annual request asks all residents in Sefton to try and provide presents for some of the borough’s most deserving children and make this Christmas extra special for them.
Gifts, for children of all ages, can be taken to either Bootle or Southport Town Halls or dropped off at any Sefton Council library, leisure centre or Asda in Southport and Bootle by Friday December 21.
Splash World & Leisure Centres
Splash World is open as usual every weekend on the run up to the festive period until December 17.
During Christmas, Leisure Centres across the borough, as well as Splash World, will have a temporary change to its opening times.
