Cycling brothers receive sponsorship

CYCLING brothers Joe and Dan Cosgrove were delighted to receive sponsorship from MeCycle Café and Bike Workshop, following nomination by the Southport Cycling Club.

The boys, ages 11 and 9 respectively, started cycling just a few years ago and have already competed in rides as far afield as Holland and the Isle of Man. The brothers, from Formby, were excited to be selected.

Colin Baldwin, President of the Southport Cycling Club, said:- "We chose them because they are getting better and better and although they've only been riding for a couple of years they have developed beyond measure. They have won all sorts of competitions in the North West in their age groups. If they stick at this, they could go far."

Joe said:- "I 1st started cycling with my mum for fun and it's grown from there."

Autism Ventures, who runs Mecycle café in Ainsdale, support young adults with autism in work placements and employment. They have sponsored young people in the Southport Cycling Club for the last 2 years. Cyclists at the café can buy refurbished bikes, cycle accessories and enjoy homemade cake and barista coffee. Along with a goody bag and certificate, both boys received a ₤150 voucher to spend in store.

Central 12 Shopping Park has hosted an eggciting event

SOUTHPORT'S Central 12 Shopping Park have hosted a low sugar, highly egg citing event over the Easter weekend where shoppers frantically searched for hidden eggs!

Families were invited to Central 12 Shopping Park for an Easter hunt with a twist. Instead of the usual chocolate eggs, children were being asked to locate 6 Easter images hidden in store windows to spell out the word:- 'E-A-S-T-E-R.'

The lucky winner Nickalas Chatten won a GIANT Central 12 chocolate egg! The delightful prize was lovingly handmade by a professional chocolatier and measured an impressive ½ a metre in height! Plus, the 1st 45 children who successfully spelt out:- 'E-A-S-T-E-R.' and returned their form were given a FREE Cadbury Crème Egg, courtesy of ASDA.

For more information about Central 12 Shopping Park visit the location's website.
