Don’t know what to do this month? We’ve got some ideas…
Knowsley Park Run
Every Saturday from 9am to 10am at Stadt Moers Park, Whiston, the Knowsley Parkrun takes place!
It’s a timed 5k event that encourages people of all ages and abilities to get active and enjoy the great outdoors! If you’re an experienced runner or just want a leisurely stroll, you will be made to feel welcome and can enjoy yourself.
The park run is organised by a team of great and dedicated volunteers who give up a couple of hours each week to help out.
If you want to take part or volunteer, you can visit the Parkrun website to register.
Once you’ve registered, you will be sent a link to print off your own unique barcode which is scanned during your run to log your time and if you’re volunteering, the barcode will register that you’ve been kindly helping.
For more information, you can email the organisers on email@example.com
The James Greenop Legacy Kicks Project
Every Friday from 5pm to 7pm, the James Greenop Legacy Kicks Project offers free football training sessions at Prescot Leisure and Soccer Centre with coaches from Everton in the Community.
The training sessions are suitable for children aged seven and over of any ability.
For any more information, you can contact Russ on 07799620644
A Break with a Book (Dementia friendly)
Every Thursday from 10am to 11.30am, The Reader holds a free reading group at Prescot Library for Knowsley residents where everyone can get together to enjoy a good story over tea and cake.
The stories will be read aloud but there’s no pressure to join in.
It’s a great opportunity to relax and meet new people -just turn up on the day.
For more information, contact Megg Hewlett on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07807106869
St. George’s FareShare
A community shop at St. George’s church allows people who use foodbanks or those who are running low on food to buy a basket of food of up to 20 items for £3. There is also some free food to give away.
For the community shop, you can come along to St. George’s Church on Primrose Drive, Huyton on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9am to 11am.
Until 1 September 2018, you can visit the ‘Five’ exhibition at Kirkby Gallery – a special exhibition showcasing the world of five of the best artists living or working in Knowsley – Gary McGillivray, Leslie Briggs, Gill Cowley, Mike Kirkby and Nick Daly.
You can read more about the exhibition here.
The Lost Tribe of Everton and Scottie Road exhibition
This photo exhibition is inspired by the ‘Lost Tribe of Everton and Scottie Road’ books by Ken Rogers.
The then-and-now photos tell the story of life in Liverpool’s old inner city streets before and after the 1960s/1980s clearances that affected thousands of people, and brought thousands to new towns such as Kirkby.
The exhibition runs until Tuesday 12 June at Kirkby Library.
Treasure Island by MATE Productions
Prescot-based theatre and arts organisation, MATE Productions, is going on tour with their production of Treasure Island – a spectacular re-imagining of Robert Louis Stephenson’s pirate epic.
