Volunteers wanted to visit custody suites

THE Fernley is back for its 2nd year in Southport event and will take place on New Year's Day 2017. If you want to shake of your Christmas pounds, or start 2017 on a high... Well this is a very unusual way to do it. The event is a charity event that is part run and part swim.

The event is now in its second year, commemorating one of the largest ever Lifeboat disasters; the tragic loss of 27 lifeboat men, with 14 lives lost, from Southport and 13 from St Annes, Lytham. The crews launched to save the troubled ‘Mexico’ boat, on 9 December 1886, but sadly many of them lost their lives soon after. The events name also recognises 1 of Southport’s greatest benefactors, John Fernley, whom The Fernley is named after.

This event takes place on New Year’s Day at 10.00am. Full information about the race that sees participants not only running around the marine lake, but also swimming across it, can be found via clicking on this

Even if not taking part, this is a fantastic event for spectators to watch as well!
