Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre reopens with a series of fantastic events

Water lovers are encouraged to dive right into a series of fantastic events at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre over the coming months.

The popular open air lake at the Waterloo based adventure centre has now reopened with staff following strict government guidelines to help continue the fight against COVID-19.

Events such as open water swimming, Stand Up Paddleboarding Fitness, navigation and seamanship courses can now resume at Crosby Lakeside, with tickets for each event available to purchase online.

All courses and events will take place subject to stringent government guidelines to ensure both staff and guests are kept safe at all times.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health & Wellbeing, said: “First and foremost I want to put on record my thanks to all our staff who are working so hard behind the scenes to help bring back services which have been temporarily suspended due to the pandemic.

“The water based facilities at Crosby Lakeside are an incredible asset for us to have and we are delighted that we are able to bring back events and courses to the lake in a safe and considered manner.”

Sefton Leisure Centres to temporarily close to help fight COVID19

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 Sefton Council have taken the decision to temporarily close our Leisure Centres.

This includes Dunes Leisure Centre, Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre, Bootle Leisure Centre, Litherland Sports Park, Netherton Activity Centre and Meadows Leisure Centre.

The last day of operation will be Friday, March 20th.

All activities including swimming lessons are also suspended until further notice. This also extends to community based Active Sefton sessions and the Easter Be Active Programme.

We are fully aware of the incredible value our Leisure Centres and wider activities hold for the health and wellbeing of our communities.

However due to recent government guidance, these temporary arrangements are crucial to help in the next phase of the government’s plan to tackle the outbreak.

It is still very important to remain as active as possible during this time. We will do our absolute best to provide helpful hints, tips and guidance for residents via our social media channels and recommend that residents remain active at a social distance utilising the outdoors where possible.

All direct debit payments will automatically be suspended until the Leisure Centres reopen and as such there is no need to contact us to arrange this.

We apologise for any inconvenience and we thank you for your understanding at this time.

First glimpse of the new Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre

Sefton council have released images of how the Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre could look following its £3million refurbishment later this year.

 The existing bistro, conference facilities and bedrooms will close from 1st April 2020 to refurbish the hospitality facilities and improve the accommodation.

The leisure side of the CLAC, including the gym and the water sports activities, will be open for business as usual throughout the work.

The artists impressions show how the brand new 120 capacity restaurant and coffee lounge will appear next to 4 new event spaces, outdoor decking areas and beautifully refurbished bedrooms once the centre relaunches in early Summer 2021. 

Once refurbished, the centre will provide an improved range of facilities and services for the local community, guests and visitors alike.

The plan is to transform the hospitality and events facilities at the Centre which include:

  • New bar and coffee area with capacity for 120 people
  • Fully glazed restaurant extension on the lakeside terrace
  • New decking on the outside spaces for events
  • Four new events spaces
  • Complete revamp the hotel rooms
  • A brand new self-contained, purpose‑built, self‑catering accommodation called THE BUNK BARN with an extra 36 beds
  • New rooftop decking and garden and seasonal ‘pop-up’ facilities

Get fit this January with Sefton’s Couch 2 5K Programme

Active Sefton has announced that its hugely successful Couch to 5K programme will be returning to Litherland from Monday 13th January.

Taking place every Monday and Wednesday, at Litherland Sports Park, the coach-led crash courses aim to help you get back into shape or rediscover your love of running over a number of weeks. while The 10 week Litherland course, starting January 13, is priced at £10.

The sessions are perfect training for those looking to get fit, find a love of running or build up stamina. Classes are drop in, drop out but it is recommended that runners take part in as many as possible.

Both sessions will run from 6-7pm each evening.

Running has many health benefits, including improved heart and lungs; and when combined with a healthy diet can result in weight loss. A more active life style is also known to improve mental health and can act as a great stress reliever.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “Taking part in Active Sefton’s Couch to 5k is a great way to get fit and in shape

“As well helping to keep you in shape, the programme is also a great way to meet new people and make links with the local community. Good luck to everybody who decides to take part, and most importantly have fun!”
