Kids rewarded for sense of adventure

LIVERPOOL'S most daring children are being rewarded for their sense of adventure this week. 

More than 70 young people have been doing their bit to prove the stereotype of couch potato teenagers playing computer games is wide of the mark.

The youngsters, aged 11 to 15, have developed new skills by completing a wide range of action-packed educational activities during the summer holidays as part of the Liverpool Adventure Challenge 2004.

Councillor Paul Clein, Liverpool City Council's executive member for education, is among those attending the prize-giving event at the Adelphi Hotel.

Councillor Clein said:- "The Adventure Challenge is a great way for kids to broaden their horizons and learn new skills. 

In the modern age when opportunities for children to explore are more limited, this Challenge represents a chance for children to develop their spirit of adventure."

HAVE you got a hidden treasure that you think could bring you your fortune? Or would you like to learn the history of a precious heirloom? 

In celebration of World Sight Day on earlier this week (October 15), Henshaws Society for Blind People invited members of the public to bring along their treasures to an 'Antiques Roadshow' at its Centre on The Strand in Liverpool.

Cato Crane Antiques gave valuations on some rather interesting items in aid of raising funds for charity to help visually impaired people within the community. 

In honour of World Sight Day, Henshaws aim is to educate visitors to the Centre on all aspects of eye care and protection in the hope of eliminating avoidable blindness by 2020.
