Sefton Sporting Lights
THE hugely popular Sefton Sporting Lights is returning
later this month to give youngsters the chance to enjoy a host of free and fun
activities. Taking place at Coronation Park, Crosby, on Monday, 30 October 2017, from
6pm, the floodlit event aims to divert young people away from anti-social
activities usually associated with:- 'Mischief Night.' Throughout the night youngsters can take part in a raft of free activities
including go karting, water zorbing and football!
Sporting Lights is organised by Sefton Council as part of the Halloween and
Bonfire Night Plan in partnership with:- The Friends of Alexandra and Coronation
Parks, Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue, British Orienteering and
other community volunteers and sports coaches.
Other activities on offer include:-
► Halloween themed Xplorer orienteering sessions around the park on the evening
(compass for the winner and runner up).
► A Climbing Wall.
► Pumpkin Carving.
► Halloween Crafts.
► Face Painting.
Refreshments for participants will be provided by Domino's Pizza and the popular
Triviso Ice Cream catering firm will also be onsite.
Cllr Ian Moncur, Cabinet Member Children, Schools, Families and
Leisure, said:- "I am delighted to see Sporting Lights return for another
year after huge successes in the past.
It promises to be a dazzling evening of fun and free activities thanks must go
in advance to all our partner agencies who have worked so hard to help us bring
this great event together."
Anyone attending is asked to bring a torch along on the evening as not all areas
of the park will be floodlit and they can also be used for the orienteering
All activities and refreshments will be on a 1st come 1st served basis. In
the event of poor weather, pedalos and zorbing will still go ahead with planned
refreshments, but other activities may be cancelled.
