Sporting Lights return to keep mischief at bay
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, October 30 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 Coronation Park, 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 For Health and Wellbeing, 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 sessions.
All activities and refreshments will be on a first come first served basis. In the event of poor weather, pedalos and zorbing will still go ahead with planned refreshments but other activities may be cancelled.
