Boy's night out to rival Ladies Day

THE annual St. Joseph's Hospice's Ladies Days are always a sell out and raise thousands of pounds for the hospice every year. But with hundreds of dads, sons and granddads' passionate about supporting it, the Hospice has decided to create an event especially for them.

The Hospice, in Thornton, is holding it's 1st ever Sportsman's Dinner, on Friday, 11 May 2018, to raise money and give the men of Merseyside a great night out full of laughs, football and beer. It has even secured some very special guests to join them.

Footballing legends, Roy Evans (for the Reds) and Kevin Ratcliffe (for the Blues) will be there to share their exciting and eventful footballing careers with a few laughs along the way. Comedian and impressionist, Mark Langley, will host the night and provide even more laughs. Even the official FA Cup will be there in all its glory.

To top it all off, will be a 3 course meal and a bar, plus it couldn't be easier to get to as it's all taking place at the stunning new Cabaret Club, The Bentley, on Brunswick Street, in Central Liverpool.

Laura Smith, community fundraiser, said:- "This is going to be a fantastic night so bring along your mates, brothers or colleagues from work and just have a great time. Your support will make a huge difference to the Hospice and, thanks to our event sponsor B&M Supplies in Southport, every ticket sold will go straight towards caring for our patients and their loved ones at a very difficult time. If you'd like to do 1 thing for the Hospice this year, please come along and help us to make this event as successful as our Ladies Days and a permanent part of our fundraising calendar."

Tickets are just ₤40 per person and are available now by contacting the Hospice's fundraising team on:- 0151 932 6044 or send them an email.

The not so secret garden party

EVERYTHING in the garden will be rosy this Sunday when a Liverpool community group showcases its new star attraction. The Friends of Walton Hall Park will be rolling out the 'green' carpet, on Sunday, 22 April 2018, by inviting everyone to an extra special Garden Party.

Supported by Liverpool City Council, the Friends have been working for the past four years to improve the park by growing plants and flowers. Now all their hard work is about to bear fruit with the opening of the Walton Community Garden.

Thanks to a Big Lottery Grant of ₤10,000 the group has created the garden as a place for people to come together, enjoy, learn and grow.

Chrisie Byrne from the Friends group said:- "The garden is a multi purpose space to grow plants and fresh, organic fruit and vegetables. It's a brand new asset to the park and we want everyone to come and see how beautiful it is."

Features of the new community garden include a library, a space for arts and crafts and a special wildlife haven. There's also a seating area where visitors can take time to breathe it all in.

Chrisie said that:- "The garden will be used by local schools, community groups and organisations and, of course, park visitors. It's going to become a real community hub.  In the near future we will be running some training sessions in bee keeping, how to grow plants and hanging basket planting."

Guests of honour at the community garden open day will by Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Malcolm Kennedy and Walton MP Dan Carden.

The Walton Community Garden Open Day is a free event and everyone is invited. It starts at noon, on Sunday, 22 April2018 and entrance is via Blackthorn Road.
