- Get on your Bike
by E G Lyon-Taylor
The Travelwise team is holding another bike ride in St Helans on August 4th. The ride will start and finish at Garswood station.
This project is an attempt by travelwise and LIFT to get children cycling during the summer holidays. LIFT is participating in the region's Summer Splash Program, where young people, especially selected, aged between 9 and 13, or 13 to 17 are given lots of interesting and exciting activities to get involved with during the summer period. The scheme offers football, arts and crafts and importantly cycling. The idea being to keep kids of the streets and keeping them healthy.
The next ride in the series will be the Sefton Promenade ride organized solely by
"Travelwise", and this is to be held on the 18th of August.
The series also hopes to promote cycling in the Merseyside area, especially over less environmentally friendly modes of transport, and will give people something to think about.
"An excellent way to improve your health and keep fit in a safe, controlled environment."
said Gil Taylor, Cycling Development Officer.
The rides are especially designed for all standards of riders and last between 2 and 3 hours at an easy pace.

you like to know more about the art of Bonsai. If so
then come along to St George's Church Hall, (next to
Sainsbury's), on Lord street, Southport, on the third Tuesday
of the month starting at 7.30pm and meet members of the
National Bonsai Society. Joining fee £1.00 then 50p per
meeting which includes tea or coffee.
Society was founded in 1973 and in the 1980's the membership
covered the British Isles, the Channel Islands and some
overseas countries. As interest in the hobby grew, more
groups were formed around the country and many of our members
joined or started societies near to them. our membership
is now drawn from an area within reasonable travelling
distance around Southport.
Object of the Society is to help beginners to understand the
art of Bonsai and to give them the confidence in their ability
to grow trees successfully, (particularly trees native to
Britain) and to promote, and foster further interest in the
art of Bonsai together with any associated activity.
