Free summer Holidays activities for families

MERSEYSIDE Police, One Vision Housing and Sefton Council's Active Sefton are joining forces this summer to provide free activities for young people across South Sefton's parks and open spaces. The Jamie Carragher 23 Foundation will be running football training and tournaments and other activities on offer include:- Segway sessions, basketball, go karting, fun days and day trips. 300 cinema tickets have also been provided for families in the area. Youth workers will be in the following areas until the end of the school holidays, with further activities to be announced later in the year:-

Litherland Boys Club and the Carragher Foundation will be in Kirkstone Park and the 'Backy' between Bark Road and Daley Road, Litherland.

Caradoc Kids Club will be in Bowersdale Park, Seaforth.

Brunswick Youth Club and the Carragher Foundation North Park and Poets Park, Bootle.

Christ Church Youth Club and the Carragher Foundation will be in South Park and Derby Park in Bootle.

Emmanuel Baptist Church and the Carragher Foundation will be in Marian Square Gardens and Killen Green Park, Netherton.

Jed Pearson, Managing Director of One Vision Housing (OVH), said:- "Working with key partners we are delighted to offer a range of free activities for children and young people in our community during the summer break."

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member Health and Wellbeing, said:- "We are very lucky in Sefton to have so many wonderful parks and open spaces and it is great to see these being used by all our communities over the school Summer holidays. The Active Sefton Street Games initiative sees hundreds of children get involved in free activities right on their doorstep. Along with other partner agencies, collectively we provide a raft of activities for young people to get involved in keeping them active and busy over the holiday period. For more information about venues and activities available, please contact the Active Sefton team on:- 0151 288 6278."

Sefton Local Policing Sergeant Kate Young said:- "Keeping children active and occupied throughout the long summer holidays is a challenge for all families, and hopefully people across South Sefton will take advantage of the great variety of fun on offer over the next few weeks and beyond, and all of which is completely free. There are so many great youth facilities in the area and I hope this encourages even more families to get involved. The activities and events are all about communities making best use of the many parks and open spaces in South Sefton. Many people attend these places to enjoy walking, exercising and having family time and we want to ensure that, along with our partners, these areas remain amenable to all residents, families, and the wider communities of Merseyside."
