There are certain traditions we pride ourselves on in Liverpool, from good old fashioned manners to respecting our elders.

But other old customs have fallen by the wayside a bit, as life moves on and the way we spend our time and communicate with each other changes.

Things like sitting out on the front step and chatting to the neighbour, or keeping a big pan of Scouse on the go in case anyone calls round will have been a big feature of life for many people.

We asked ECHO readers to get in touch and let us know the traditions they think are worth hanging on to - and we were blown away by the scale of your response.

Some of their suggestions were old traditions that have become a bit forgotten, whereas others are still alive and well for the most part - but we need to make sure we hang on to them.

The responses from ECHO readers were a real reminder of how lucky we are to call Liverpool home and to share it with so many like-minded people.

Here's what you had to say when we asked which traditions were worth hanging on to.
